Cause 4Coin Trap

Some washers are equipped with a coin trap to trap any foreign objects that enter the drain. The coin trap should be checked and cleaned periodically. If debris continues to accumulate in the coin trap, the coin trap will become clogged, and the washer will not drain properly. If the washer won’t drain or is not draining properly, and the washer has a coin trap, remove the coin trap and clean it thoroughly.
