If you are talking about a small, rectangular magnet, about a 1/16" think or so, it goes in the detergent dispenser drawer. Looking at the front of the drawer, right side, a little behind the front. This magnet triggers a ( or should if its not falied) a magnetic reed switch which allows the washer to operate only if the drawer is closed.

If you take the drawer out, and remove the front, you will see where it goes.

Up and down light not working when using my sebo x4 not changing levelsthe magnet fell off found it


Look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74IxduzYTII
at about 8 minutes, 54 seconds. The yellow wheel with the belt has a magnet on its right hand side, and the grey wheel has a magnet on its left and side. The magnets are sensed by a Hall Effect detector which is the thing at the end of the circuit board.

Maybe the magnet you found needs to be glued back into the recess in the wheel. Probably it needs to be the right way round, so I would look for glue residue on the magnet.

Washer - soap dispenser door - Magnet fell out... where does it go


I had the same problem. If you turn the dispenser so that the front faces away from you, look on the left side in the front. half way up there is a space with what looks like a plastic clip that might hold the dispenser to the front bezel. This actually holds the magnet, which can be installed without taking the dispenser apart. Be sure to install (pop in) the magnet vertically so that the long part of the magnet sits next to the right side of the dispenser opening (when viewed from the front) when the drawer is closed.

Pin fell back inside the central shaft.


Use a good strong magnet from the outside while holding it upside down. Move the magnet around the shaft as if going through a maze that you can't see- untill it finds the exit path out! Take an old hard drive apart and use the magnets they have-they're very powerful.

Magnet


if it's a small rectangular magnet that appears, in our case, fell out, when you add detergent, softener, etc...the magnet goes on the right hand bottom corner of the drawer face, straight up and down, not sideways. this is evidently some type of sensor allowing the washer to start. we had an error code of "ddo" when the magnet fell out.

My door lock magnet fell out and I don't know whee to put it back on the dispensr mechanism tomake t lock


I found it! If you are looking at the drawer from the back the magnet sits in the pocket in the far left. The plastic extends out like a clip (to hold the magnet in place). You depress that when placing the magnet in.
