Unless you can hear it catching as the drum is going round I would leave well alone, it will probably just get lodged near the heater and not cause any problem.
If the m/c has a removable rear panel then you can get access into the drum by removing the sump hose fastened onto the bottom of the drum. you might find it stuck there.
If no removable panel, then it is a strip down job, Not recommended, unless you know what you are doing.

I have a bra wire stuck in my machine, i cant feel it through the holes, but can hear it scraping on the drum. How do i remove it, i have a zanussi lindo 300

Remove the complete agitator. Unscrew the top of the agitator and you will get to the screw that holds the entire module. You will need an extension bar to get to the screw with a ratchet set. The head should be 5/16" and then you can get to the item.

Hi We have a zanussi washing machine and a bra

This is very good polish washing machine

A quick solution is to bend a piece of wire (2 pcs), preferably a rigid hanger for example,) if they can fold back the flap gum can try to pull up underwire

Probably the rear cover is removed, remove the drum, and also use a piece of wire or other tool ... This is a typical problem for women;) can be found a few minor by the way;)

DONT RELEASE SEAL. Tilt machine and remove sump hose get someone to rotate drum in hope you can catch hold of wire. be careful of fingers on drum as they are like cheese grater. good luck this is best way and a little patience will do the job

Bra wire stuck between inner and outer drum how to remove Hotpoint WMF760

Depends where it is stuck. If near the very front you can sometimes get them by removing the door seal to gain a small access between drums. Other ways is remove the outlet pipe from the bottom of the drum or easiest and most probable area where it stuck is remove heating element. Provides a better view and bra wires normally get stuck on them.

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.
