Depends on the coin mechanism. If it's a coin slide that you put all 4 quarters in then push the slide back, then there are two solutions. First, and best, would be to fill the quarter slots with blanks, then you could just push the slide when you need to start it. Second would be to just take off the service door and you would be able to reach your hand in and push on the same mechanism the slide would, of course you would need to keep your hand away from any wiring to avoid a possible electric shock. If it's a coin drop, where you put one quarter in at a time and the unit counts the quarters as you put them in, then you wouldn't be able to just start it, but you could reprogram the board accept just one quarter instead of 4, and you would need the manual as each manufacturer has a different process to do that.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it goes out of balence shuts down no matter wht size load or how i arange the load never completes the spin cycle this is a kenmore elite oasis 5 years old. #2 problem...


as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

Considering the purchase of Samsung WF338 / DV338 Washer & Dryer


beware of front load washers on second floor! vibration will be more likely to be a problem. because of the floor the only real place a frontload can be at its best is on a floor that has a concrete slab foundation because if the floor can move, flex or creek your washer will vibrate and will shake your house. also beware of putting the cabinets under washer they can cause it to vibrate even on a slab floor because the cabinet will flex and move. Also make sure you check your pockets really well all the time!!!!!!! drain pumps and service calls are expensive it is worth the time. and only HE soap the washer uses 1/3rd the amount of water as a top load so you cannot use the same amount of soap or you will get suds build up in your washer and it will cause it to leak and cause error codes that will cost you a service call. And leave your door open when your not using your washer because It will start to stink even more so if you use the wrong soap.

Dryer not drying clothes


An easy way to check dryer function is to check the airflow on the outside of your home at the exhaust the vent. While the dryer is running, and hot, put your hand near the outlet. The air coming out should be hot and forceful. If not, there is most likely an obstruction, and the whole airway should be cleaned. Keeping the airway clean and clear can dry clothes faster and save you money.

Another possibility is the blower,(fan) which can become encrusted with lint, preventing it from moving air. This is much less likely, but still a possibility.

Hoover washer dryer


Peace aminajmay,
ngafm At your service!


Sounds like there is an electronic problem.
DO NOT RUN THE APPLIANCE tillit is checked out with hands on from a laundry tech!
If I were there hands on I could be definite.

Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses.

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Noisey dryer


Peace bumbabob,

Huuum t your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched noises telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on! I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


Unfortunately, another point to consider!!

If you can get it apart, you should be able to fix it yourself. This is a tricky task though (I've seen customers spend hours just trying to change a belt, which you'll have to remove), so you may want to pay the money and have someone come out.

It is hard to say without hearing the noise for myself, but my best educated guess would be that the dryer drum bearing needs to be lubricated. You should lubricate it with white lithium grease, about 1.5 ounces of it.

In order to do this, you will have to take the dryer front off, remove the belt from underneath the drum and then remove the drum. You will see a bearing on the backside of the drum (looks like a post with a ball on it). You will see where that inserts on the back wall of the dryer. You should put the grease in the insertion point, then put the dryer back together again.

I have a Haire combo unit. (washer/dryer) The dryer is a condenser type. I had a this problem with the dryer part of my unit. It was still under warranty at the time so naturally I called. When the tech came out he discovered that the heating element had melted the fan all over the blower elements. this problem could have been fixed, however, Haire came out with a newer model and couldn't get the parts anymore because they weren't making them anymore. Needless to say that totally sucked. But, at least the washer still works great. Upon doing a little research, I discovered that most condenser dryers do get too hot to support one or more of thier internal elements. I would not get another dryer like this without asking about this problem and if there has been any rectification of this issue and how so.
