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

I have whirlpool LHW0050PQ4 washer, after connect prower, start light is flash and hear click but no water in and is not working

Hello.

It can be tempting to ignore washing machine noises, especially if the machine is still working. But 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.

1 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.

2 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.)

3 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.

4 Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

5 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.

6 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.

Thanks.

Scraping sound from dryer when running

If the sound seems to come from the front of the drum it's probably the felt guides. The bottom one will wear first and make a grinding, rattle like sound. You can access it by removing the front panel which includes the door. It fits around the drum at the front. Here's a diagram. Some models have a two piece and some a one piece guide. Part 4 on this diagram is one. It's called a seal here.
If the sound comes from the rear, there is a nylon bearing and metal socket at the rear center of the drum.

Something rolling inside the Drum

The rear half of the outer tub, with bearing is part # 131525500 and it looks like the back "spider" shaft is not available as a separate part from the inner drum. The "spider" shaft is most likely worn or damaged and in need of replacement also.
131618500
Then, there's that strut
134564200
Now, two pain in the back side hours of your labor and you've got your washer back, at more than what a new one would cost! Junk it and get a new larger capacity front loader.
Please don't rate this, as anything but the top rating will lower my score. I'm just giving you my honest opinion, that your machine is not economical to repair. I've owned a LG front loader for over 6 years and think they are the best, but there are other good front loaders out there also.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Ticking noise in spin

Possible. First run your hand around the inside drum...be careful...sometimes there can be an object stuck in the holes and the extra vibration can set it off. common objects are bra wires and hair clips (sorry ladys its the truth) followed very closely by......(you guessed it ladys) Nails
