If you take the front lower cover off you will find a plastic knob. Get a bucket first then unscrew the cap with a wrench. All kinds of stuff will come out from the washer.

Take a flashlight and look inside, see if you can find a screw or nail that may have gotten caught.

Gently pull whatever it is out.

Dont use the machine or you may damage it!

Duet washer making a loud noise on spin cycle, it squeaks on low spin and then when it gets up to high speed, it is really loud. What could this be?

In most cases it is something that is sticking between the drum and the housing. Check inside the boot by the door. If that is not helpful move the drum by hand and listen to see if you can locate the area of the noise.

Sounds like something is stuck inbetween the drum and the outer part.Doesn't spin freely by hand.Can something get stuck like a penny or rock or something

anything at times can work its way into the area between the drum and outer edge of it,, Ive pulled everything from dog bones to socks that rolled around long enough to become lodged in this area,, if you have an inspection plate at the rear or bottom of this machine, remove it, and with the help of a mirror you should be able to look along the sides to see if anything is there ,

Money stuck inside drum making noise

The easiest way to access the area between the inner and outer drums is to take the front off. Instead of something being in the drum making the noise it may be the front felt pads that the front of the drum turn on. It makes the same noise. They are replaceable.

Somethings stuck in my washer

nasty problem. At the door of the machine there is a very slight gap between the inner and outer drum. smalls can get caught here and work their way down. solutions: power off lay the machine on its soapbox side remove the outflow pipe and see if you can find the offending object. Trickier solution: power off remove the heater usually at the back look into the heater housing and see if its there. Removing a heater can be tricky.nut in the centre unscrew but not fully. Tap the screw shaft lightly with a hammer and the remove the heater. When replacing lightly grease the seal to ensure it goes back more easily. Always power off before working on a machine

Grinding sound - drum turns then nothing - just grinding sound until E20 warning.

Can you turn the drum by hand.E20 relates to a fault with either the pump or the filter or drain may be blocked,check the filter is clean and the pump can be turned by hand,its up at the end of filter housing and can be seen depending on the model.If the drum cant be turned freely then you have something stuck inside the drum.

Hope this was helpful.

There is something in between the drum and housing. We have drained the washer and cleaned the filter still it is still there.

it seems like the drum will have to be removed to get to the offending object. it is probably stuck between the seal and drum, like a coin.

You will have to remove motor hoses etc. and take out the whole drum housing.

Object in the drum

this aint an easy fix.
Sometimes a bra wire gets through the holes and gets stuck.
the only thing you can do is split the drum housing and empty it out.
No hard to to but takes a lot of time and patience.
Sometimes when you are lucky take the pump hose off the drum housing and look in that hole. sometimes it gets stuck there
