Bra wire has gone through the holes in the drum and makes a dreadful noise when it rotates, there are now signs of the wire inside the drum. How do I get the wire out


Cannot make out if that is a typo. There are signs of the wire or there are not? If you can see the end of the wire, grip it with a pair of pliers and carefully work it out back through the hole it is stuck in. If there are no signs of the wire, look if you machine has any removable plastic paddles in it. If it has, remove one of the paddles, usually held in by screws and clips, and rotate the drum till you see the wire, and remove it. Also look around the front of the drum behind the door in case the wire is jammed in there. If all this fails there is only one solution and that is to remove the front of the machine and the front of the outer drum to gain access to the gap between the two drums.

When i turn the drum it sounds like something metal is rubbing on it, what can that be


the usual culprit is a rogue bra underwire which has gone through the holes in the drum. feel round inside the drum it be still sticking through a hole if so grab it with a pair pliers and pull it back. failing that if you take the heater out you can recover it through the aperture.

DONT RELEASE SEAL. Tilt machine and remove sump hose get someone to rotate drum in hope you can catch hold of wire. be careful of fingers on drum as they are like cheese grater. good luck this is best way and a little patience will do the job

Bra wire trapped in drain of washing machine noisy when drum rotates.How can I get it out?


Fishing line was looped through the larger holes in the back of the drum with a lassoo on the end of it & hooked round the wire then drawn out. A very time-consuming procedure in a confined space with a fine bendy light to illuminate the part.

Bra wiore inside drum


HAVE YOU A GOOD BRIGHT TORCH? IF SO I REMOVED MINE WITH A TORCH IN MY TEETH & A SMALL FLAT ENDED SCREWDRIVER, IF YOU CAN SEE IT TURN OFF ALL POWER TO THE MACHINE FIRSTLY THEN USING THE SMALL SCREWDRIVER COAX THE BRA WIRE TOWARDS THE NEAREST HOLE IN YOUR DRUM & THEN FEED IT THROUGH AS BEST AS POSSIBLE & THEN GRAB IT WITH EITHER FINGERS OR PLIERS IF IT IS A STRUGGLE TO PULL IT OUT.
DONT LEAVE IT IN THERE & THEN OPERATE IT AS IT WILL JAM IT & BLOW YOUR EXPENSIVE MOTOR WHICH ARE APPROX £80 OR HIGHER & YOUR PUMP IF IT JAMS IN THE BLADES BEFORE REACHING YOUR FILTER ..

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!!

Bra wire stuck in AEG washing machine


Hello, to fix this, what you should do firstly, is remove the machine from it's normal position, and then get a handyman to take off the back cover (which is not recommended by the manufacturer) and get right into the guts of the machine. Once you have found and identified the drum, internally, then open the waterproof cover, and note where are the parts and screws go. Keep digging the inside up until you ahave reached the bra wire. Alternatively, if the wire is still visivly poking out of the small holes in the drum, pull the wire out with pliers. Good luck! PS- If this information was helpful, please rate me either solved, thanks for trying, etc. Thankyou! Daniel Ballantyne
