Sounds to me like the belt may have fallen off the back of the drum.
look under the lid and see. if a wd, should be simple enoughto put it back on by removing the back cover to refit.
turn the power off though.

Metal (wire?) stuck in rotating drum cavity.


Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!

Washer is putting holes in clothes


Check the inside of the drum when the machine is empty by feeling the entire surface with your hand. Take care as you are looking for something that's got stuck in one of the holes in the drum and is protruding into the drum, and this can often be a wire from an underwired bra!

If you find anything it should be removed by pulling it out carefull with a pair of pliers.

When the washer is filling a loud noise is coming from the motor, it sounds like a bearing is going out. It seems to do it mainly when the washer is draining, but it starting to make the noise through the...


Hi,

Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings. Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.) Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub. Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water. Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers. Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Bra wiore inside drum


HAVE YOU A GOOD BRIGHT TORCH? IF SO I REMOVED MINE WITH A TORCH IN MY TEETH & A SMALL FLAT ENDED SCREWDRIVER, IF YOU CAN SEE IT TURN OFF ALL POWER TO THE MACHINE FIRSTLY THEN USING THE SMALL SCREWDRIVER COAX THE BRA WIRE TOWARDS THE NEAREST HOLE IN YOUR DRUM & THEN FEED IT THROUGH AS BEST AS POSSIBLE & THEN GRAB IT WITH EITHER FINGERS OR PLIERS IF IT IS A STRUGGLE TO PULL IT OUT.
DONT LEAVE IT IN THERE & THEN OPERATE IT AS IT WILL JAM IT & BLOW YOUR EXPENSIVE MOTOR WHICH ARE APPROX £80 OR HIGHER & YOUR PUMP IF IT JAMS IN THE BLADES BEFORE REACHING YOUR FILTER ..

I have a hotpoint aquarius 1100 washer dryer wd51 was making a grinding noise we turned it off and a under wire from a bra was sticking through a hole in the drum pulled it out and it is complete but now...


The bra wire bears no relation to your present problem.
Remove top cover, screws at rear, and push top cover back.
See if the belt is still on, if it is, then select final spin and see if the motor and drum go round, if it does not, then the brushes in the motor probably need replacing.
Unplug washer, and disconnect the motor. you will find the brushes at the motor plug end, depress plastic lugs, and slide brushes out, if they are less than 5mm long, then replace them

If it is the belt that has come off, you will have to remove the rear panel to refit it.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

F6 flashing and won't spin


There may be a bra wire stuch between the drums. Try to pull it out through one of the holes and keep in mind that if it is a bra wire, that it is curved and will need to be pulled out at an angle.
