You haven't given make or model

however, usually the easiest way to get at foreign objects is to remove the heater.

undo back panel and you will see heater held in by 1 10mm nut in centre. loosen nut and prize heater out. you can then see into the gap between tub and drum and fish coin out.

a few types have the heater mounted in the front which makes it more difficult

We have a dryer fin with something rattling around in it. Do the fins come off?


Need a model number for the dryer for a more definitive answer--usually you would have to open the top cover to expose the drum. Depending on the model dryer, some baffles(proper name) are screwed onto the drum, some have plastic tabs which must be carefully pushed in order to remove the baffle. Most likely, the rattling is caused by coins left in pockets--they won't damage the dryer but can be irritating to listen to. Front load washers are notorious for trapping coins in the baffles of the rotating baskets--and that is A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR if you want to have the coins or objects removed.

I can hear a coin rattling under the drum of my duet front load washer. How can I remove it?


If I were you, I would leave it, and it should find it's way into the filter.
To try and remove it is quite an involved task.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

My GE WSLP 1100 makes a grinding/"coin rattling" before the spin cycle. what's going on?


You have something rattling around in your water pump. It might be a coin or a piece of fabric getting in the way. There is a cap you can open to have a look. It is on the bottom right at the back of the machine. Hope this helps.

Front load washer- coin removal


Hi, The coin is probably inside the baffle that tosses the clothes around. I believe this nodel has a screw that holds the baffle in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Coin trapped between rotating drum and casing


Get underneath the machine and remove the big black house coming directly out of the drum,this is held in place with either a screw tie or pinch type tie.
Put the machine back level and see if the coins drop out (they should) or have a feel around inside the drum.
Please make sure machine is unplugged and empty before carrying out this procedure.
Some water will come out of hose.

Maytag Centennial: Not starting, maybe lid lock issue? How to install new magnetic lid latch? then is replacing lid lock next or could it be something entirely different? Help, please, and THANK YOU! I have a Maytag Centennial washer MVWC450XW3 that quit working last week. In hindsight, I could see that there had been a history of "stuff" going on with the washer, all around the lid lock;i.e. - last time it worked I had to select a couple of different cycles before it finally started. SO Far, I have tried to get the diagnostic codes but failed a bit at that. I THINK that I was getting an F5E1 error. I was however at least able to access the diagnostic menu, and notice TWO things: No matter what, the Lid Locked LED never comes on, ever. Next thing I notice is when I do a short cycle diagnostically, it never agitates or spins. It fills various temp water, does not agitate, then it seems to suck the water back out. IN the end, I ordered just the magnetic part of the lid lock (the part that is actually on the lid) because I could see mine was rusted all the way away, but am not too sure how to put it on. Therefore I just put it in the slot where it would go if I had installed it. Incidentally II asked my ma if she had noticed anything going on with the washer and she said No at first but then with prompting (she's 81) allowed that she had indeed noticed something wrong with the lid shutting so she had cleaned out that "little hole"{ very well and oiled it to make sure it was working. So again my two main questions are: How to install the lid latch, do I need to take out all of the screws around the glass? and Should I next move on to buying a lid lock part or could it be something entirely different?
