Is this a HE2,5,4 model? Can you give me the model number from inside the door. If it's a front loader. The only way you can get it out is to totally tare it down, cement, springs, shocks, and crack apart the outer tub. Very very labor intense. Usually if the unit is out of warranty, the cost of a tech to do it isn't worth it. What's the issure with it?

Thanks for the insight. I have a Samsung front loader washer, and have the same problem. Can you tell me how I can fix and retreave the quarter/coin?

This is not an unusual problem for washers, but how to eliminate or reduce it would help to know what brand and model. Sometimes it is the balance ring that sits atop the inner drum, or it could be the antivibrate friction pads that are too worn (they are diffierent on each brand), or could be the balance springs at the bottom of the tub assembly ( there are 3 or 4 springs and one could be broke), or could be the balance (suspension) cables that appear in some brands and the cables or pulley wheels are not in line or are worn/broke.

SOURCE: drum shakes during spin cycle
I have a 7 year old duet washer. It started to shake during the spin cycle. It is level and the shocks and springs holding the drum are working. When the washer gets to the spin cycle, it is apparent that the drum is off center.
I tore the machine apart and found that there is a bracket at the back of the drum. This bracket sits in water so it was covered in slime. I found several large cracks in the bracket. Once these cracks occur, there is now way the drum can spin correctly. The bracket is welded to the back of the drum, so it has to be completely replaced.
What a poor design. I would guess that many, many other people will be seeing the same problem within a couple years. I was lucky in that I did not pay for a repairman to try to fix it.
