Re: coin operated machines: slide mechanism is not moving...
I had a coin washer and dryer.The slider has little fingers(metal)that slide over the coins.If the coin isn't placed and the slider is pushed hard will jam. Mine had a side cover with a lock. Open that and there is a long rod that has to be unscrewed to remove the lock box,then you should is what went wrong.Hope this helps>

I have not fixed any of these front loaders for a while, but the top cover should come off (usually with a key), which will give you access to the coin mechanism and timer. There you usually need a 5/16 wrench or a flat screwdriver to remove the screw at the top of the mechanism.

If this is a kenmore front loader (boxy type made by frigidaire), the button must be depressed for several seconds. The second problem with this model is the "coin mechanism" cam must be in the correct position to operate the machine. If someone puts in coins two times without starting, it can get out of sequence with the timer. If you have a key, open coin box and move the metal arm back until the cam advances to just before the big dip. (with the unit unplugged). The next cycle will allow the arm to drop and engage the microswitches. If you don't have a key put coins in the slide mechanism as though you were going to start the machine and depress button until machine starts, this will reset the cam to the correct position. Hard to explain but if you look at the coin mechanism, it will become obvious. If you need a new mechanism it is called the "start mechanism" for front loaders. Hope this helps.
you need to take the coin slot out by using a socket wrench. then you need to flip the slot over and take the screws off. there is going to be two more screws to unscrew. take off that piece and also the claw like coin catcher. form here on out you should be able to remove as many slots as you need to.
