Question about Washing Machines
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 door....no 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.
