    Not sure what you mean by the waterproof cover, but if you mean the large drain hose connector then that is what I am about to remove and delve into the interior. Thanks for you reply.  Madam has been instructed to go bra-less in future!

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

    Hello again! I am happy to read that you are trying to fix your machine by yourself, not be a PAID person! Because I'm not too familiar with AEG machines, that big hose connector would be the one to remove. Beyond that hose connector, should be something to keep the whole unit waterproof. After removing that, you should find the bra wire.

    Thankyou so much for rating me, because my work friend is a master on this website, and he told me about it. My friend said that 'You should put your wide knowledge to action.'

    Thankyou again, and Good Luck!

Bra wire stuck in washing machine

You could try a very thin pair of twezers, or a very thin magnetic pick up tool,you might be luck.. if not the only other way is to remove the ruber door seal to get acces to the inside of the drum.

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 wire trapped in drain of washing machine noisy when drum rotates.How can I get it out?

Fishing line was looped through the larger holes in the back of the drum with a lassoo on the end of it & hooked round the wire then drawn out. A very time-consuming procedure in a confined space with a fine bendy light to illuminate the part.

Bra wire stuck somewhere in machine

You will not see it as it is trapped between the inner and outer drum, what you need to do is remove rear panel and the large hose from the pump to the bottom of the drum,
Then reach in with your fingers and see if you can feel it , if you can't then short of removing the drum (not recommended) ther is not a lot you can do, hopefully it will find it's way into the filter, where it wiil not be a problem
Plz rate this solution.

Bra underwire stuck

disconnect from electricity. take back panel 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.

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.
