The coin is probably rattling against the blower fan. First, unplug the dryer or turn off the main breaker. There are live voltages present inside a dryer even with the power shut off. Then, follow these steps: 1. Take out the lint screen. 2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are a couple of screws under the front. The panel should pull straight down then come off. 3. Remove the blower fan housing. There will be 2 to 3 screws holding it in place. NOTE: If you did not take out your lint screen in STEP 1 you will know why I told you to take it out. The blower fan housing won't come off with the lint screen in place. Once you have the panel off you will be able to access the blower fan, and anything else that as gotten trapped inside the housing. This would be a good time to clean as well. Reassembly in the reverse order of what I just explained to you. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

I have a Fridgedare front loading washer with dryer stack. There seems to be coin or other metal object behind the drum. The tech tells me he has to remove the dryer and access the washer from the top. ...

Hello Edie, thank you for your inquiry!

Generally speaking, since your washer and dryer are two separate units the dryer would need to be remove in order to access the washer. This will also help prevent any personal injuries. I do hope this information proves to be helpful.

Best regards.

Get another coin and place it next to a magnet if it attracts it then go to your local hardware store and buy a cheap magnetic retriever switch off the power and go fishing

If it does not then the simplest option would to get two strong people to turn the dryer upside down to let gravity do its work

Coin is stuck

Does it become quiet for awhile after the coin is removed? I can't imagine how a coin lying in the bottom is making any kind of noise. There is no way for a coin to be trapped on the outside of the drum. It might, if it got past the lint filter and worked it's way into the blower housing, make an occasional 'clink'. Does the lint filter have any sizable holes in it? Do what these techs have done and see what you find.

An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.
