The only way without disassembling the machine would be trough wide rubber hose which connets filter housing and drum. If you're lucky you'd be able to reach it wit your hand or some tool. Still that would require a lot of work, luck and wouldn't come out without expenses for new rubber hose since they are usually glued to drum.

SOURCE: 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

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.

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.

SOURCE: 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

How do I remove a piece of metal from bra which has got stuck under the insiden cylinder and drum


it completely has to be pulled apart and once you have done that you will probably find the bra wire while spinning around has ripped into the plastic outer tank so bad it will now leak and have to be replaced & this is the most expensive job to have done it sounds silly for a bra wire but you should honestly consider buying a new machine it often ends up cheaper to do so rather than spending 3/4's of the price of a new one fixing your one.

I have a bosch washer machine which has got a bras wire stuck in the drum i think.When i run the washer now water is coming out from under the machine.


possibility of such a bra wire stuck in the drain valve or drain hose, you can check, ranging from filter sewage water to the drain valve (with drain motor). you should open the drain valve / motor assembly. wire bra might clog there. so that the rubber water valve does not close properly

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.

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!!
