I have a porter cable 7518 and a small washer fell into the motor. Should I be concerned about this? The washer was probably 1/16 thick by 3/8 diamter.

I'd definitely have that thing upside down and be shaking it. I have a 7518 and often thought that dropping something down there would be a problem. Removing it should just be four screws so it shouldn't slow you down much.

Like Del said, if that washer jams between the case and the wrong moving part, that's the end of the router.
