When you do this the waranty will be voided.
it is not too hard to remove but it is time consuming. Did this many times before but you have to be patient and methodical.
not what you take of and you will have to split the outer drum.

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.

During the spin the washer makes much more noise than it has in the past. There are also small chunks of hard plastic showing up in the clothes.


There may be an object that has gone through one of the holes of the spin basket, check to see, something like a bra underwire may have gone through and is rubbing on the inside of the tub

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.

Washer is putting holes in clothes


Check the inside of the drum when the machine is empty by feeling the entire surface with your hand. Take care as you are looking for something that's got stuck in one of the holes in the drum and is protruding into the drum, and this can often be a wire from an underwired bra!

If you find anything it should be removed by pulling it out carefull with a pair of pliers.

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


you may not have to take the washer apart, take a good ligtht and look around inside the spin tub, if a part of the underwire is sticking thru, try and pull it out. Do not use the washer until the wire is removed or it actually could cut the tub and then the machine will leak $$$

Let me know the make and model if you need more assistance

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.
