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!

Bosch wfk 2800 drum makes a noise when turned around

When you rotate the drum by hand slowly does it feel bumpy and still make a noise? If so suspect the bearings on the drum to be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Makes a fairly loud noise similar to metal in drum .occurs intermittently. Appears to be related to draining.

Coin, bra-underwire, etc. Could be between rotating and fixed drum. Or may have flushed through to the filter and fouling the pump. Try the filter (remove, clean, check 'up pipe') first.

Good luck.

Leaking water at the bottom and making load noise

From the description of your problem, there are two possibilities.
One, water valve will have to be replaced.
Second, the area of the leak indicates a leaking drain pump.

Hope this helps.

I have a underwire from a bra stuck inbetween the tub and the metal interior. Is there an easy way to remove the metal interior, or will I need to call in a repair man?

If it got in, it should be able to come out.
Just gently rotate it and try to manipulate it out.
If worse comes to worse, you may have problems turning the wire because of its shape. If that's the case, cut the wire to remove the curve, MAKING SURE TO LEAVE PLENTY OF LENGTH TO WORK WITH.
With a little persistence, you should be able to work it free.

Good luck!

Drum Stuck

First, take off the top of your dryer. Use a screwdriver to pry the top up in front, then it's usually held on by some swing metal hinges on the back that simply come off by themselves as you rotate the top of the unit up and back. Then, you should be able to see all the screws and metal brackets holding the front of the unit on, remove all of these and you should be able to pull the front off. It may be necessary to unplug some of the wires when doing this. Then you should have full access to the front lint filter section on the door, and the fan section underneath the drum. The fan and the drum spin together, so if the sock is stuck in the fan that will also stop the drum. Good luck

BOSCH V651 Front Loader

suspect you have a foreign object jammed between tub and drum.
to check, remove back panel, remove heater (held by one 10mm nut in the centre - just loosen the nut and prise the heater out.
you can then see into the gap and check if there is something stuck there - bra wires are the favourite
