Electrolux EIFLS55IIW0. I have coins stuck inside one baffle. I can find a lot of videos online for removing other model Electrolux baffles but not this one. Most say to insert a screwdriver and hit with mallet toward rear of machine. The parts diagram for this model shows a screw into the baffle from the tub up into the baffle. I have no idea how to access that screw if there is one. Any one have any knowledge of this model and the baffles inside before I start hitting this thing with a mallet? Thanks.

The inner drum needs to be accessed by removing the front half of the outer tub. Yeah, I know, bad design. lol

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I found a solution to my problem though. The very front left corner of the baffle before the first clip has a little play to it. It can be carefully pried up. I used a thin automotive trim piece removal tool. I was able to lift the corner up and the tool was snug enough to hold itself in place. This left a gap about the size of a coin. Then I tilted the front of the washer down to let gravity help draw the coins to the opening.

With the machine tilted down I then moved the drum back and forth to work the coins to the front. This also applied some force to the coins as they fell to front of the baffle. After about 20 mins of doing this, I was able to get all 7 coins out. Took a while, but thankfully not as long as taking the tub apart.
