Do not attempt to remove a drum unless you have been trained to do so

First thing to do is to dump the back drain hose into a big dish and drain off all of the standing water
in the machines sump.

Remove the power !!

Tip the machine towards the back and front to get as much water out of it as possible

Tip the machine back agains a wall or a bench with a cloth protecting both surfaces

Put a wooden block underneath the front edge of the machine in case it falls on you

Get a torch and look at the bottom of the drum , there will be a big hose connected to the base with a jubilee clip or spring clip

Remove the clip and pull the hose off , place a cloth on the floor as there may still be some water in the hose , if you are lucky the wire will be either in the hose or in the sump that the hose is fixed to.

If the hose is connected to the rear of the drum tip the machine as far back as possible allowing the wire to fall within reach of the hole

If you cant see it get a magnetic retriever or a piece of bent coat hanger and go fishing.


If the hose is fitted to the front of the drum reverse the machine and lay it on its front or as far forward as possible , that way the wire will fall towards the hole

While spinning, it made a loud noise but finished washing the load while continuing to make the noise especially while spinning fast.


Hi Chantal,
In my many years repairing Miele machines - the most common problem for what you are describing is the underwire from a bra has got in between the inner and outer drum. It's tricky to get out and can be done if you are good with tools and a little technical - but it does involve opening up the machine, removing one of the heating ellements and searching / fishing it out. Another less common reason for this rubbing noise could be the metal heater element bracket that also sits between the inner & outer drum, has bent - but this is normally caused by a bra underwire. Hope this helps.

Maytag Nuptune washer in spin cycle sounds like a plane taking off


Something small, like a paperclip or the wire from an underwire bra can get stuck in the holes in the drum, and rub against the outer drum. You will have to check carefully to find it.

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;)

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.

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!!
