Question about Bosch Washing Machines
Bosch wfd1060 front loader. metal (wire?) stuck in drum cavity. How can i remove?
Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!
