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

A wire from a bra has gone through the holes in the drum and is now trapped in the drain. The plastic parts inside the drum catch it every time the drum rotates. Model is Bosch WFP3300 how difficult is it to remove this or can it be left in even though it makes the machine noisy?

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.

How to remove Bra wire trapped between drums.


Try to see if there is a large rubber sleeve underneath that you can remove. It will probably be fastened with a clamp. Make very sure that you get it tightened afterwards, or it may leak.

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.

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
