It is probably between the clothes tub and the outer tub. To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck

The underwire of a bra came out and got caught in one of the holes. Now when I wash clothes it wash for 2 seconds then stops. It keeps starting and stopping so the clothes are not getting washed.


Try removing the power overnight by unplugging it or flipping the breaker. It might be a memory thing noticing all that strain on the drum, underwires eh? :>)

Just thought, there is a very delicate setting which gives very, very little agitation, silks or woollens I think. Make sure you are not on that setting for delicates.

If that doesn't fix it, you need an engineer.

Why is drum rattling?


Typically there are 2 reasons for this. Either, you have something trapped in the drum (Underwire Bra wires are the favorite for getting through the holes on the drum, getting caught near the bottom of the drum and making a horrible rattling scrape), OR your bearings are failing. If it's bearings then typically the noise will be far far louder on spin than on wash and you may have found bits of plastic and grey or greasy residue in your washing. This detritus will be from the grease in the bearings and small scrapings of the outer plastic drum, created as the inner drum, spinning erratically, catches it some of the time. If it's the latter, then sadly it's typically an uneconomical repair. Bearing replacements usually cost around £140, at which point you end up with an old machine, with one good part in it, which is questionable economics! If it is a "sealed drum" (that is to say, the drum cant be dismantled and the 2 halves of the outer drum are chemically bonded together during manufacture), then you are looking at the cost of replacing the entire drum, which usually works out at between 60%-75% of the cos of the machine when you bought it new.

While spinning, it made a loud noise but finished washing the load while continuing to make the noise especially while spinning fast.


Hi Chantal,
In my many years repairing Miele machines - the most common problem for what you are describing is the underwire from a bra has got in between the inner and outer drum. It's tricky to get out and can be done if you are good with tools and a little technical - but it does involve opening up the machine, removing one of the heating ellements and searching / fishing it out. Another less common reason for this rubbing noise could be the metal heater element bracket that also sits between the inner & outer drum, has bent - but this is normally caused by a bra underwire. Hope this helps.

I had my Daughters Bra in it and it caught somewhere and now the drum doesn't turn. I am thinking that since it ripped the bra to **** maybe a pce of it is caught in the drum runner. When I tried to...


When you turned it mannualy it probably popped the belt off the pulley.Also if it was a bra with a metal stay check to see that they are both still in the bra. Hope this helped.

BRA UNDERWIRE STUCK IN DRUM

Bra wire stuck


you may not have to take the washer apart, take a good ligtht and look around inside the spin tub, if a part of the underwire is sticking thru, try and pull it out. Do not use the washer until the wire is removed or it actually could cut the tub and then the machine will leak $$$

Let me know the make and model if you need more assistance

Bra underwire stuck


Switch off machine and unplug it from the wall socket. Remove back plate and identify the heating element. It should be located at the bottom of the outer drum. Remove element and you will have limited access to the space between the drums. Rotate the drum slowly by hand untill the bra wire gets to the bottom of the drum. Remove obstruction with hook or long tweeser.

How can we remove underwire caught outside the drum?


I havent opened your particular model, but mine (74520) cen be easily opened from the back (6 screws to remove the plate). You can then see a big rubber hose attached to the bottom of the drum housing. By removing this (open the big clamp on the hose) you should be able to detach it and reach into the housing and get the object out.
