Problem with bra wire

I made a terrible mistake. Somehow I forgot and put a bra with wires in my washer, which is LG All-In-One Washer/Dryer. Unfortunately, one of the wires came out and stuck somewhere behind a drum. There was a noise after that during the spin cycle, but after that the noise stopped and machine worked just fine until the end, but I am afraid to use it again before we do something, cause I don’t want my machine to get damaged.
Please help me and tell me what should I do.
Thanks in advance.

A common problem, the wire usualy catches on the heater assembly and wraps around it, shine a torch into the bottom of the drum through the holes and you should be able to see it,if so remove the heater to remove the wire. the only other place it could be is in the sump hose so remove that to remove the wire,i must do six or seven of these a week

How to remove a bra wire from behind drum in tumble dryer


Somehow they always end up in some inaccessible spot. Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter the model of your dryer. You will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic video showing disassembly for bra wire retrieval. Good luck.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water


Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

BRA WIRE STUCK BETWEEN DRUM AND HOUSING


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. It's been about 55 years since I had experience with front load washers. However I can refer you to Applianceaid.com where they have very good and complete trouble shooting and repair information on front loaders. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

LG WD-1438RD washer dryer combo won't turn on


Okay well i had the same problem with my LG WD-1438RD so i took it a part it was a loose wire in the display module easy fixed. I guess from banging the door closed and hitting the buttons to hard made it come loose. To fix it all you need is a phillips head take the two screws out of the back up the top then slide the lid forward. then remove the powder tray thing unscrew the 2 screws behind it push the clips out of the way just be careful not to break em. re connect the wires! job done =) i put glue and electrical tape on the wires and plug so it shouldnt happen again..... I hope i helped you good luck

I have a hotpoint aquarius 1100 washer dryer wd51 was making a grinding noise we turned it off and a under wire from a bra was sticking through a hole in the drum pulled it out and it is complete but now...


The bra wire bears no relation to your present problem.
Remove top cover, screws at rear, and push top cover back.
See if the belt is still on, if it is, then select final spin and see if the motor and drum go round, if it does not, then the brushes in the motor probably need replacing.
Unplug washer, and disconnect the motor. you will find the brushes at the motor plug end, depress plastic lugs, and slide brushes out, if they are less than 5mm long, then replace them

If it is the belt that has come off, you will have to remove the rear panel to refit it.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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!!
