Question about Washing Machines
Disconnect the machine from the power source and also disconnect the inlet hoses.
First start by opening the top hatch. You can do this by first opening the lid. there are 2 screws under plastic caps in the corners, under the lit. Open the screws.
See if you can lift the top hatch back. If not, you need to open the screws, or sometimes no. 7 bolts, in the back of the machine. These join the top hatch (plastic part) to the machine body (metal part).
When you raise the top hatch, there will be a power connection with earth wire, and a presure hose which connect to the bottom of the control panel. You can disconnect these. Take note, as you need to put them back on later.
Once you remove the top section you have clear access to the top of the drum. There is a plastic rim on top of the drum which you need to remove. Sometimes they are screwed on, and sometimes they clip into place. The old hoovers were clip on plastic. The newer hoovers are more like Simpson and have screws.
Once you remove that, look down in between the inner and outer durm and see if you can see the bra wire. If you can get to it with a long object it will be alot easier, than having to remove the inner drum. If the bra wire is free and just sitting on the base, just tilt machine to its side and with the help of a few people turn it upside down.
Removing the inner drum is a pain, and I do not suggest you do that yourself, unless you have the right tools.
However I can help you with it if you can not get to the wire. Let me know.
