Bra wire stuck in the drum

Washed an underwire bra and one of the wires came out and is now stuck between drum and casing. Is there any way to get this out without calling out the engineer?

Take off the panel at the back of your machine and you will see a large black pipe running from pump to drum.
Take it off at the drum end and you can get your fingers in to remove it.
Thankyou for using fixya.

Are you from outside the United States? I tried running the model number in our system and it does not come up as submitted. In the GE/Hotpoint Look-up there are only three models listed...Without a good and verifiable model number, I cannot help further.....

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;)

Electric Dryer Model DCSR473EVOWW has loud scraping sound when drum turning .... sounds like metal on metal


There is likely to be something stuck between the inner drum and the outer casing. In my experience this is most commonly the wire from an underwired bra! (belonging to my wife!)

If the inner drum has holes in it feel the surface carefully all over to try to detect a wire or other object protruding into the drum. If you find something it can often be pulled free with a pair of pliers or pincers.

Bra underwire stuck in Bosch WAE22461AU


You can try using a very high strength magnet to bring the clip up to a hole in the tub so that you can then use a pair of fine long nose pliers to grasp it and reef the little blighter out!

How do you remove underwire lodged between drum and outer case


hi to remove bra wire from between drums ? you might try this 1st ? if you diconnect water supply hoses and unplug power supply then remove rear panel from machine you will have access to the large rubber drain hose from outer drum down to discharge pump ? ok hose is held by spring wire clips both ends remove clips then hose you may find bra wire either in hose or close to drum drain if you need ? feel inside drom via drain hole ? or probe with a piece of coat hang wire ? you may even find the mysterious missing sock/ thong / etc when you disconnect the hose too?? any debri has to lay in bottom of outer drum and so a little patience will locate them using this method instead of removing the main front door sealto drum for access to same area also with rear panel off you can check belt tension ? hope this helps/inspires you ? best wishes from uk

Bra underwire stuck


disconnect from electricity. take back panel off.you will see heater at bottom of tub held in by 1 10mm nut.disconnect wires to it. loosen this nut and pull heater out - you may have to help it with a screwdriver. you can then see into the gap between tub and drum and fish for the bra wire.
tell her not to wear bras with wires!!

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.
