Replacing Coin Slides/Chutes on a Commercial Coin Washing Machine 

Coin Washer Machine Repair

Is your commercial coin-operated washing machine refusing to accept coins or experiencing issues with the coin slides/chutes? A malfunctioning coin mechanism can disrupt your laundry business and inconvenience your customers. At Star Appliance Repair, we’re here to guide you through the process of diagnosing and replacing coin slides/chutes to get your machine back in working order. 

Identifying the Problem 

Before diving into solutions, let’s understand why your commercial coin washing machine might be experiencing issues with the coin slides/chutes: 

Wear and Tear: Over time, the coin slides/chutes can become worn out or damaged from repeated use, leading to difficulties in accepting coins. 

Blockages: Accumulation of dirt, lint, or foreign objects within the coin mechanism can obstruct the movement of coins through the slides/chutes. 

Mechanical Failure: Components such as springs, levers, or sensors within the coin mechanism may fail, preventing proper operation of the slides/chutes. 

DIY Troubleshooting Steps 

Inspect for Obstructions: Begin by visually inspecting the coin slides/chutes for any visible blockages or foreign objects. Use a flashlight to illuminate hard-to-reach areas. 

Test Coin Acceptance: Insert various denominations of coins into the machine and observe how they are processed. Note any coins that get stuck or fail to register. 

Check Coin Mechanism Components: Remove the access panel or coin box cover to access the internal components of the coin mechanism. Inspect springs, levers, and sensors for signs of damage or misalignment. 

Clean the Coin Mechanism: Use compressed air or a soft brush to remove any debris or buildup from the coin slides/chutes and internal components of the mechanism. 

Test Coin Path: Manually manipulate the coin slides/chutes to ensure they move freely and without resistance along their intended path.
