It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

SOURCE: bra wire stuck in AEG washing machine

Hello, to fix this, what you should do firstly, is remove the machine from it's normal position, and then get a handyman to take off the back cover (which is not recommended by the manufacturer) and get right into the guts of the machine. Once you have found and identified the drum, internally, then open the waterproof cover, and note where are the parts and screws go. Keep digging the inside up until you ahave reached the bra wire. Alternatively, if the wire is still visivly poking out of the small holes in the drum, pull the wire out with pliers. Good luck! PS- If this information was helpful, please rate me either solved, thanks for trying, etc. Thankyou! Daniel Ballantyne

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.

My washing machine's drum is making a scraping sound when turning

There are two different types of "drum balancers" manufactured into washing machines today... One is a disk type (most washers with this have 2-6 depending on age, manufacturer, and quality), the other type is a self-balancing style. It sounds like you need to order some new drum balancers. The repair will take approxmiately 1-3 hours depending on if the it is a front or top-loading machine.
Hope this helps, James

Bra wire stuck between the drums in hotpoint WD440 Aquarius washer dryer

Look all around the inner tub with a torch , if you spot the wire sticking through grasp it firmly with pliers and pull out , dont let it go , if it slips completely between drums it is more difficult to get to.

It might be a bearing, or it might just be something inside the drum!
If the machine is not exceptionally old it shouldn't be a bearing.
It might be limescale!
You can access and inspect the drum from the outlet.
Heres what to do:

Disconnect the machine from the mains and the water supply and pull it into a clear area.
Put a thick cloth on the floor and gently lay the machine on its left hand side, looking from the rear,
Undo the small panel on the back and you will see the black rubber concertina hose, pressure chamber and pump, which are now all easily accessible from the rear and the botom of the machine.
Undo the circlips with a screwdriver and pull the hose away from the drum. You will now be able to see the element and the inside of the drum.
Check it for debris and limescale.
At the same time clean out the filter with its "ping pong ball" and plastic pressure chamber.

THis will clear out any loose items and let you check to see if the drum needs descaling.
Job should take about 20 minutes!
