Lost a underwire from a bra

Our BRAND NEW (I'm talking days) has somehow managed to reach into a bra and remove the underwires? The bra was not new...but newer with no tears or rips. I found one underwire on the floor when flipping things from the washer to the dryer. (It really is quite remarkable how this was done.) But now I'm left wondering what to do. Should I be concerned? I've checked filter several times and can't see any signs of it. I've inspected the rubber weatherstripping around the sign of it. I've even tried to peek through the tiny holes in the washing drum...nothing. I do have a five year warranty...should I just call the service tech? Any ideas of what my next step is?

Bra underwires are one of the main engines of the appliance repair buisness.
You do need to keep a close eye out for it in the filter but it probably will do no good to call for repair. The repairman most likely will check the filter and tell you to call back if you have any trouble. Until it works it's way down there isn't much you can do without disassembling the washer.(no small feat for some of them) The only real damage that may occur is if it pokes a hole in the drain hose between the tub and pump. This has happened, but rarely. They will usually make their way to the pump and you will hear the noise, at which time you can usually remove it with no trouble.
Be sure to wash bras in a delicates bag on delicate cycle in the future.
Hope this helps.

Underwire from a bra is stuck behind drum

You wouldn't believe how common that is. If you can see part of the underwire, unplug the machine first! Then, try to pull it out through the holes in the rear of the drum with needle nose pliers or vise grips. I can't stress enough the need to unplug the dryer first. On certain brands the heater is right behind the rear panel and depending on certain circumstances there could be 120-240 volts to the heater even though it is not hot and the underwire could either be shorted already or will short when you try to pull it out.

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 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.

How can we remove underwire caught outside the drum?

I havent opened your particular model, but mine (74520) cen be easily opened from the back (6 screws to remove the plate). You can then see a big rubber hose attached to the bottom of the drum housing. By removing this (open the big clamp on the hose) you should be able to detach it and reach into the housing and get the object out.
