What is the brand, model of your machine? I had a wire pass through years ago which didn't stop my machine but did 'swoosh" on the barrel until it settled down flat where it caused no further problem. I have just opened my machine, 6 yrs later and the wire was still sitting harmlessly in the bottom. Early on, a repair guy said it is too costly to open a machine unless it is actually jammed.. I would give the barrel a good spin by hand in both directions, to try to move the wire. If this doesn't help, the model and brand of machine will help you get better advice. Some machines have different access points..
Good luck!

LG 950 Direct Drive washing machine... Machine fills with water but does not start the cycle, it is trying to but then of course it doesn't, during its "trying" phase you can smell the motor working...


Check there is nothing blocked in the outlet pipes ...sometimes when wire (maybe from a underwire bra) gets in them it stops the machine from this function. If this is not the problem then it will be a programming one...

Maytag Nuptune washer in spin cycle sounds like a plane taking off


Something small, like a paperclip or the wire from an underwire bra can get stuck in the holes in the drum, and rub against the outer drum. You will have to check carefully to find it.

Washing machine model no SF-160GJ have problem show F9 at the screen


it will not let you unlock the door because the machines full of water?--the machine will not finish its cycle because the vacume switch is still detecting water. The water will not drain because the pump is blocked with something , probably a wire from your underwire bra, all you can do is undo a pipe undernieth and let the water drain away and take the pump to bits? There may be an inspection cap somewhere on the front at the bottom.

Hope helps.

My washer makes a click noise 2 times per rotation on the spin cycle. Even when empty, when i turn it the same noise happens.


typically a bra wire under the drum will cause this noise. a faulty motor will do it but with 10x more clicks . so look for rogue underwire.

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!!

Lost a underwire from a bra


Bra underwires are one of the main engines of the appliance repair buisness.
You do need to keep a close eye out for it in the filter but it probably will do no good to call for repair. The repairman most likely will check the filter and tell you to call back if you have any trouble. Until it works it's way down there isn't much you can do without disassembling the washer.(no small feat for some of them) The only real damage that may occur is if it pokes a hole in the drain hose between the tub and pump. This has happened, but rarely. They will usually make their way to the pump and you will hear the noise, at which time you can usually remove it with no trouble.
Be sure to wash bras in a delicates bag on delicate cycle in the future.
Hope this helps.
Thanks/Mike

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.
