Drum turns but sounds like a small metal object, possibly a screw, banging around inside . Continued to use and now sound is much louder and sounds like a bigger object.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.



The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The belt loose or worn can make funny noises



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

How do I clean the trap filter inside my Electrolux Front loader


Good Morning Deanna - Sounds like you are speaking about the Coin Trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to clean the trap:
· Unplug the unit.
· Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
· Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
· Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
· At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
· Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
· Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

Good Afternoon Brenda - Generally speaking, washer machines do not have a filter. Depending on your particular model the unit may have a coin trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to locate and clean the coin trap:
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
  • Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
  • Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
  • At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
  • Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
  • Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.

Dryer sounds like there is change on the outside


i had the same problem last week on my dryer, turns out that the felt on the drum where its attached to the housing has worn off, my dryer is so old. i did do careful inspection, by sticking my head in the drum and turning it by hand and looking into the seam. it does sound like there was a coin in there, but it was just metal to metal scrapping. im off to my buddys used appliance store to look for a felt seal.plz rate-bozcro

Front load washer- coin removal


Hi, The coin is probably inside the baffle that tosses the clothes around. I believe this nodel has a screw that holds the baffle in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

My kenmore series dryer is making noise as it runs. It heats but makes a noise as if coins are in the dryer. I cannot see anything from inside the dryer, is there a way to remove the front face of the...


there's 2 basic ways to removing the front panel. First is 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel, when removed the panel can be lifted and un-hinged from the top. The other is by using a flat screw driver and prying the top up at the edges on the front side the removing 2 screws or hex screws located inside the front panel toward the top. make sure you undo door swich wires before completely removing the front panel. then in the middle of the drum on the inside of it either 1-3 screws hold the drum to the back. Remove belt first then screws then pull drum straight out. The noise may be from your rear drum bearing or coins have gotten in the paddles of the drum(inside) paddles can be removed. I had coins in one of my paddles, made 60some cents lol at same time found perfctly round lint balls. Good Luck

SOMETHING stuck inside the dryer body - something like a coin... let me knwo


ok here is the best way to describe it you will need to get around the back there are two torks screws remove them and slide the top panel back to you ..OH I FORGOT unplug the machine first !!!....Ok now with the top off you will see the drum.. slowly hand rotate it until you see some screws that are lined up with the baffles inside the drum You will need to remove just a few screws on one side (the baffle that has the coins) dont take them all out or the baffle will fall inside the drum and it will be a pain to get back on9u will need 2 people) and that should do it you will need to rotate the drum around until the correct baffle ...ie ..the one with the coins in on top at the 12 o'clock position.. let me know if this works our for you

Spin cycle noise


coins inbetween bowl can be a problem
try tacking machine outside empty of all water
tip upside down sometimes gets the coins out
otherwise you need to pull machine apart
try another way
remove from bellows from machine and turn bowl by hand to remove coins
have fun
