Put the washer on spin for a few seconds then turn it off, it will spin the coins to the outside, if that doesn't work u will need to remove the washer tube, the solutuion works well have used it many times in my own washer

### There are 2 times as many dimes as nickels, and the value of the dimes is \$1.65 more than the value of the nickels. How many nickels and dimes are there.

There are a couple of ways to figure it out, one uses algebra (ugh), the other a bit of multiplication. I choose multiplication.

Fact: Since there are twice as many dimes as nickels, we can deduce that for every two dimes there is one nickel. Thus, if we start with two dimes and one nickel, we can see that there is a difference of fifteen cents in value. Knowing that for every two dimes and one nickel we add we will increase the difference by fifteen cents, we need only divide the difference (1.65) by fifteen and that is the multiplier we need to get the proper number of coins.

165 divided by 15 = 11.
So, two dimes times 11 = 22 domes or \$2.20.
One nickel times 11 = 11 nickels or \$0.55.
Note there are twice as many dimes as nickels.
Note that \$2.20 minus \$0.55 -= \$1.65.

Tip

### Thanks so much for posting this tip! It's very annoying that the user guide...

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADING washing machines. If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

### How many combinations of 56 cents are there?

Great question.

You could start with the number of quarters, which can be 0, 1, or 2.
If there are 0 quarters, then you only have dimes, nickels, and pennies to worry about. You can have 0 to 5 dimes. There can be 0 to 11 nickels. For pennies, there can be 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26, 31, 36, 41, 46, 51 and 56.

Time to work out lots of combinations!

Sounds like a summative project for a data management or statistics course or a great computer programming assignment;)

Good luck,

Paul

### C100 Coin Sorter & Counter C-100

Coin sorters have to be able to handle a variety of coins in a variety of conditions. The one intended for home use are not very accurate even when new and sorting accuracy declines with age. The only practical "fix" is to take a technological step backward and sort coins manually.

### Volume

Not enough information. You need the mass density for the alloys the coins are made of. Besides, you cannot use physical measures without specifying the units. Furthermore when you say that " the weight of the nickels and dimes is equal to 743?" does it mean the total weight of all those coins, or the weight of the nickels and that of the dimes are both equal to 743 (weight units).
Sorry you will have to be more forthcoming with the necessary information.

The problem was in the pump during the spin cycle pumping water out, I had my son put his hand on the rubber like tank and he could tell something was inside, and it was quarters,nickles,dimes and one penny all in total about .75 cents after taking the money out the noise Less, We still have some noise but not like we would have to buy a new washing machine. If anything we may need to buy a new pump.
