My wife inadvertently pushed a nickel past the front drum seal

Customer Question

my wife inadvertently pushed a nickel past the front drum seal when attempting to remove it. Model WED6200SW1 SER #4365236 (Cabrio dryer)

You will want to retrieve the nickel because sometimes it can drop down and fall on a thermostat or thermal fuse and short out on top of the blower wheel housing. To do so you'd need to take the dryer completely apart. Below is a video that shows you how to remove the lint filter, the screws through the lint filter, the top panel, and then finally the front panel so you can remove the coin that fell.
