Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Whirlpool Duet: "remove the heater..."

In answer to the question "Sounds like there is a marble or coin in drum", you answered, "remove the heater which is held by 1 19mm nut in the centre", which sounds like it could help me solve a similar problem (dropped a screw between the drum and tub while installing new baffles)... Problem is, I don't know exactly where is the heater: could you point me to a source of documentation?

Don't know the whirpool duet cos i'm in uk not us.
i assume your machine is a front loader
places to look for heater are
remove back plate and look for heater at bottom of rear face of tub
sometimes heater is mounted on front plate of tub in which case tilt machine backwards and see if you can see heater mounted towards bottom of front face.
most likely place however is on the rear plate of the tub

Kenmore HE2Plus washer. It sounds like a pin or other metal object may have fallen through the holes of the drum. You can hear it roll around when you spin the drum. Is there any way to remove it without...


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

LG front load washer A coin fell in between drum and housing.coin rubs on drum while spinning. how do you access the area between the drum and housing?


take off the front panel

on the bottom/front of the drum is the heater- held in with 10 mm nut - slacken the nut- this will loosen the heater in its holder- pull out the heater- this gives you access to the bottom of the tank

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.

I have a coin rattling around in my front load washer. How can I get it out?


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

Indesit wil 103 heater element


no need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out
