Question about Bosch Classixx WFO 2866 Front Load Washer
There are 2 ways: 1. Tip machine on its back and remove the sump hose from the bottom of the tub, and root around inside. This option doesn't give you much play. 2. Remove the from of the machine and the heater element. 1. remove soap drawer and undo resessed screw 2. remove kick strip and remove screws behind it 3. remove door seal band and front of door seal 4. slide front panel down and towards you to remove. 5. remove heater element to gain access to inner drum. With the sump hose also off you should be able to remove the foreign object. http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/bosch-washing-machine-spares.html

Tips for a great answer:
If its rattling check the drum for anything
caught in it.Washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign
of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem
may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud
noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has
come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn
of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire
time the drum is spinning.)
Look for obvious dents and creases in the
drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the
drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.
Clear the water pump from obstructions like
coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is
Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires
if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can
also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the
drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if
you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or
wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
