There are two retention clips along the front located about 4-5 inches from each corner. After you get the top up, you will have to pop off the little cover that will reveal the agitator bolt. After removing the bolt, you can pull the agitator and the entire drum (take off top water flow thing as well). I pulled about $1.96 out of the bottom of mine but also had to pull the drain pump to get change out of it as well. For the person that said his washer made a noise during the spin cycle and thought it was a bearing, I would look for change behind the drum and in the pump first.

You have to disconnect all wire connectors, inner basket, both pumps & Then unclasp the 4 shock rods then remove the whole inner assembly. Then turn the inner assembLy upside down & every which way until they all fall out. Like shaking quarters out of your piggy bank.

I have coins down in the tub causing loud noises during drain. What is the best way to get them out?

I have the same problem with my Cabrio, coins sneak into the ejector pump. They make a heck of a racket when the machine drains.

You need to:

1) Disconnect the plug and the hoses.
2) Tip the machine forward, it's easier to work on. Put the styrofoam shipping ring back in the tub, it keeps things from rattling around.
3) Take the back off.
4) The ejector pump is at the bottom right (as seen from the front.) You need to remove the discharge hose, it's held on by a spring clamp. I've found that vise grips work well for this. Slide the clamp up the hose, then pull the hose off.
5) Remove the clamp from the front of the pump in the same way.
6) Remove the pump. It's held by 3 screws, then pull the pump off the input hose. Tip the pump down, the coin should fall right out.
7) Put the hoses back on before screwing the pump back in. The hoses have an index mark that match up on the pump so you can't put them on crooked.
8) Put the back on.
9) Wonder why Whirlpool left a space big enough for coins to drop through, and really search the pockets when you do the wash.

Love my Cabrio,but have had to have serviced four times due to a coin or button getting from the tub into the pump and making a hole in the pump. I try not to let anything in, but I'm human . Has anyone...

Yes. The way to get coins out is to:

1) Remove the white cap inside the tub and then remove the bolt. Pull that section off.

2) use a putty knife to push in on the two locks about 6" in from each side that hold the top to the main body of the washer and lift up the top into the maintenance position

3) Unclip the hose from the tub and remove

4) There is a white ring around the top that is clipped to the outer tub multiple places. Pull it out of the clip and remove this.

5) Lift the inner tub out

6) At the bottom of the outer tub, there is a white plastic cap above the motors with two bolts to remove.

Once you've removed all these, you should have found all the hidden coins. Reassemble everything and then be very careful about checking pockets before using the machine!

A coin fell into the basket and rolled into the gap at the edge of the wash plate. I took the plate out but the coin was not there. It must have fallen into the larger slots beneath the wash plates. If I...

The coin will not drain out nor be fed back into the tub by the recirculation pump but it will block the filter or eventually block the impeller of the drain pump and break it. You'll then experience a draining problem and need to replace the drain pump.

What you have to do is remove the basket to get the coin out then take the opportunity to clean the filter vanes. The coin is most probably still in the filter.

Tape the lid to the top of the washer then disconnect power to the washer.

The top of the washer is held to the front of the cabinet by two locks located about six-and-a-half inches away from the outer edges of the washer. Use a putty knife blade or similar tool to press and unlock the top locks.

Insert the blade of a putty knife into the seam between the top of the washer and the cabinet at the given distance from the outer edges of the washer. Press the locks then lift the top of the washer.

Remove the impeller (wash plate) cap by inserting the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver or similar tool into the slot in the impeller cap, and then pry the cap off.

Remove the 7/16" hex-head bolt from the impeller (wash plate), then lift and remove the impeller from the basket.

Pull the recirculation hose off the tub ring by compressing the spring clamp holding it in place. Remove the tub ring by prying and unsnapping its tabs from the tub.

Lift the basket out of the washer to access and clean the filter. Remove the two screws holding the filter to the tub. Take the filter off and clean it.

Reinstall the filter, the basket, and the wash plate. Secure the wash plate with the 7/16" hex-head bolt then snap the impeller cap in.

Put the tub ring in place aligning the tabs then snap the tabs back into position. Reinsert the recirculation hose into the tub ring and secure it with the spring clamp. Push and lock down the top of the washer to the cabinet.

In case the coin is no longer in the tub or in the filter, turn off the water supply to the washer. Disconnect the fill hoses from the rear the washer and remove the end of the drain hose from the laundry tub or stand pipe.

Place padding or cushion on the floor fronting the washer, and then carefully lay the washer on its front panel to access the drain pump at the bottom of the washer.

With the washer facing down and you facing its bottom, the drain pump is on the left while on the right is the recirculation pump. You can actually see the drain hose connected to the drain pump.

Using a pair of pliers, compress the spring clamps holding the drain pump inlet and outlet hoses. Move the clamps away from the pump then remove the hoses.

Remove the three 5/16" hex-head drain pump mounting screws. Open the wire cover on the pump then disconnect the wires from the terminals of the pump, and then remove the pump from the washer.

Check the pump impeller for any debris and clean it. Reinstall the pump after cleaning and secure it with the three 5/16" mounting screws. Reinsert the inlet and outlet hoses then secure it with the spring clamps. Make sure the tab on the outlet hose connector fits into the slot in the outlet hose.

Reconnect the wires to the pump terminals then close the wire cover.

Shirt caught between the drums on my whirlpool cabrio washer

1. Unplug and take off the top of the washer.  There are two pressure clips in the front inside the crack between the top and body of the washer.  Use a stiff putty kniff to depress the clips and flip the top up out of the way.
2. Pry the top plastic shroud off the tub.  There are a series of plastic retainers clips around the shroud.  Pry them up and remove the shroud.
3. On the small agitator on the bottom of the washer, use your putty knife to remove the domed plastic cap in the center.  Pry it up with the corner of the knife to expose the nut.
4. Use a socket wrench to remove the center nut.  It will likely take a good deal of force to loosen it.
5. Once you have removed the center nut, get another person to help you lift the stainless steel inner tub out of the washer.  Place it aside.
6. In the bottom of the outer plastic tub, you will find the shirt (or other garment) caught in the drain.  Remove the screws on the top of the plastic drain cover, and lift up the drain cover.
7. Remove the stuck item(s).  For all the coins and small part that have fallen into the drain tub, you may have to open up the back of the washer and remove the drain hose to access the items in the drain.  Luckily the drain hose is held on with cheap hose pressure clamps, so you can do this relatively easily.
8. Call or email whirlpool and tell them that the washer is pulling clothes into the space between the inner and outer drums.  They will respond by telling you they have never heard of this problem before and if you need service, call "A&E Factory Service toll-free at (800) 771-3029."  
9. Be frustrated and vow never to buy a Whirlpool product again.  

Hope this helps

Whirlpool Cabrio Leaks Water

Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!
