Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I have a Whirlpool Thin Twin Stock #LT5000S. There is a coin that got up under the agitator in the washing basket, fell down one of the holes, and is rattling around in there. Had one previously that got in the hose and clogged it up. Had to have the hose cut to get it out. This is not an easy thing to do.
Is there any way to get the coin out from under the agitator?

SOURCE: Coin in dryer
The coin is probably rattling against the blower fan. First, unplug the dryer or turn off the main breaker. There are live voltages present inside a dryer even with the power shut off. Then, follow these steps: 1. Take out the lint screen. 2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are a couple of screws under the front. The panel should pull straight down then come off. 3. Remove the blower fan housing. There will be 2 to 3 screws holding it in place. NOTE: If you did not take out your lint screen in STEP 1 you will know why I told you to take it out. The blower fan housing won't come off with the lint screen in place. Once you have the panel off you will be able to access the blower fan, and anything else that as gotten trapped inside the housing. This would be a good time to clean as well. Reassembly in the reverse order of what I just explained to you. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

you can pop of the agitaor ( held on by a 7/16 screw to the the inner tub will lift right out, it merely rests upon the spline, youll need to "pop" the main top first by "popping hte release clips. approximately 6 inches form either side between the main lid and the front panel are the clips, use a sturdy putty knife as these are tough to undo, the outer tub ring then simply unsnaps off and youll be able to remove the inner basket with no problem.

not that unique, whats happening is the transmission has a wig wag and shift cam bars that are not moving at the right time. you probably have an open coil on the wig wag and its normal for them to do this when a coil fails. just take the 5/16 screw out of the wig wag and lift it off the plungers, then replace it with a new one. all should work correctly after that.

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.
