Marble left in pocket

My daughter left a marble in her pocket that has been sucked throught the drain opening. When the drum spins you can hear the marble going around but I can not figure out how to get it out. When the spin cycle starts in makes quite a racket.

The only thing I can think of, short of calling out a technician to remove the drum. Remove the door and door seal, then tip the washer onto its front and MAYBE the marble will roll out of the front.
If you could actually rest the front of the machine on something that would allow you to get your fingers in the front between the drum and casing you may be able to catch the marble in your fingers. Not an easy thing to do I am affraid.

My washing machine fills up but the drum is not spinning


Hi calex if your beko wma10w washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below
How to replace Beko Washing Machine Motor Carbon Brushes
you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

I have a Frigidare FWX833AS1 which had been working quite well until a screw left in a pants pocket lodged in the basket/drum. after that it hasnt drained completely but running the spin cycle a second...


Take off the back of the machine. Locate the water pump, it will have the drain hose attached to it. Remove the water pump and take it apart. You should find your screw and maybe some other things. If the water pump is not damaged reinstall and everything should be working.

I heard a noise that sounded like it was grinding marbles and now it will not work and there is water in the washer.


Peggy,
“”I heard a noise that sounded like it was grinding marbles and now it will not work and there is water in the washer.””
With the washer not working do you have an error code to the LED display? Can expand on the washer not working?
Do you here the grinding noise in wash/agitate cycle when the tumblers are turning?
If so you need to remove the tumblers and see if there are any coins under the tumblers. See page 37 of the Service Manual.
The SM doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal it’s a #20 torx driver.
You can enter into Service Mode and empty the wash water with this process.
To pump out the excess tub water;
I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.
Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.

Front load washer sounds like a marble is loose


You washed something from your pockets. coins, marbles, I even removed a nail clipper before. Use a flashlight and try to look through the holes. If you can get front panel off. Put light under tub and see if you can see something that way.

AFTER SPINNING, WATER IS LEFT SOMEWHERE IN THE DRUM. i CAN'T SEE IT BUT CAN HEAR IT AND THE WASHER SMELLS BAD.


Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

Well, I have the GE front load washer, model WBVH6240. I've got a marble stuck between the drum and the housing of the drum. It doesn't seem to be causing any damage, yet. Just makes a LOT of noise, so we...


I being a previous repairman, would not suggest to go ahead with it, the drum is a tough thing to work with and even I woud sooner live with the noise than go get it out,the drum is supported by a rear bearing that should not be effected by a marble,< best advice for you to try is unplug unit and tip forward until drum is level, with door open and shake drum to try to get it to fall into drain hose> if marble moves freely between drum and tub this will work,< the drain has a catch to prevent it from getting to pump. If you succeed at this then remove lower panel below door and there is a removable cap on drain to clean it out, remove cap< twisting it > and retreive marble. if marble doesn't move freely damage to unit may happen due to constricting movement of drum,< call repairman because it will require complete disassembly of the unit and not inexpensive either.

Sounds like a jet engine at full spin cycle


These things are notorious for sucking clothing under the the drum , it could cause it to be noisy spin slow and have drain problems . This is such a poor design . Try removing the drum and see if there is an article of clothing under it , mine sucked up a mans large shirt . Even if the drum seems to spin freely it still could be the problem .

Sounds like there is a marble or coin in drum


remove the heater which is held by 1 19mm nut in the centre and prize out carefully with a screwdriver. you can then see the gap between the drum and the tub and fish out whatever is in there. a common problem
