Correspondingly, how do you get a coin out of a washing machine?
- Unplug the washer to avoid getting a shock while you look for the coins.

- Remove the front access panel of the washer.
Additionally, where do coins go in a washing machine? Coins can get stuck inside the exterior wash tub, drain hose or the pump. If you find that this is the case, you should remove them immediately, as they could cause serious damage to your unit.
Also know, can coins break a washing machine?
Reader's Digest reports that coins, keys, and other metal objects can damage the inner drum and outer tub of your washing machine. In fact, leaving coins and other metal items in your pockets can result in damaged clothes, a leaking washing machine, and plenty of other damage.
Is it worth replacing washing machine bearings?
It's possible to replace these, but it will depend on the make and model. Some cheaper models and newer machines have sealed outer drums, so you can't replace the bearings – you have to replace the whole drum. With a new drum costing more than £100, plus labour costs, it may be more cost-effective to buy a new machine.
