Bra wire removel

Bra wire stuck behind drum

    I have an Elite HE3 and have the same problem. Bra wire is stuck between the outer tub and the inner drum. I can hear a screeching noise when the drum turns, especially during the spin cycle, but not all the time. I wasn't sure whether the wire was lost in the washer or dryer and kept using the washer until I heard the noise. I removed the bottom front cover and looked into the filter but couldn't see anything. I also looked through the tub holes with a flash light but couldn't see anything. How can I get it out? Please help.

Dont know what model you have. Search the net for a repair manual for your model machine. Some are downloadable. Then remove the tub to get to the bra wire.

I have a broken bra wire stuck behind drum of LG turbo drum washing machine, how do I get the drum out??


You don't say if it's a front or top loader. I managed to get one out with a strong magnet inside the drum just moving it about until it appeared near one of the holes in the drum without taking the machine apart. But it was a front loader and is probably easier than a top loader.

Bra wire stuck between inner and outer drum how to remove Hotpoint WMF760


Depends where it is stuck. If near the very front you can sometimes get them by removing the door seal to gain a small access between drums. Other ways is remove the outlet pipe from the bottom of the drum or easiest and most probable area where it stuck is remove heating element. Provides a better view and bra wires normally get stuck on them.

Problem with bra wire


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

Bra wire stuck somewhere in machine


You will not see it as it is trapped between the inner and outer drum, what you need to do is remove rear panel and the large hose from the pump to the bottom of the drum,
Then reach in with your fingers and see if you can feel it , if you can't then short of removing the drum (not recommended) ther is not a lot you can do, hopefully it will find it's way into the filter, where it wiil not be a problem
Plz rate this solution.

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 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.

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
