Get a flashlight and put it against the holes in the inner drum and you will be able to see what the object is. If you pull the door gasket down and away, there is normally enough room to slip in a straightened wire coat hanger to hook it out.

If it is a front loading washing machineIt will probably either be in the pump outlet filter or be wedged between the inner drum and the outer drum ie. stuck on the heating element, depending on which type of washing machine you have.
1. Unplug the washer from the mains.
2.Turn water supplies off to the machine.
3.Open the door put your hand on the bottom of the drum inside the washer, lean a bit of your weight on the drum and turn the drum around. Can you hear a scraping noise?
If you can hear a noise, get a service engineer out as the ring is stuck between your inner metal drum and the outer plastic drum
4.If you cannot hear a noise. Lean the washer backwards and prop it up at the front so it is safe for you to gain access to the pump area,
5. Take the rubber hose clip off the pump with pliers, pull the hose off and feel inside the pump and filter basket, you might find your ring there.
6.Then replace everything as it was.
From the symptons you describe, it is 1 of 2 possibilities that is causing the problem.
1- the main drum bearings have collapsed, thus causing excessive movement on drum, this is turn allows the drum to catch the outer plastic drum, thus breaking pieces of it off.
2- The main drum shaft has fractured, causing the drum to turn off center, again causing the inner drum to catch the outer drum, and breaking the plastiof the outer drum.
Either way, it entails a strip down to determine problem, and at the age the washer is, I would not cosider it a viable repair, as either way, it will be a repair bill in excess of well over a £100.00,and could be a lot more if the plastic outer drum has to be replaced, which is a distinct possibility.
Take the plunge, and treat yourself to a new washer.
yeah but its hard, and may not just fall out. Tip it on its side or front to get the panel on the bottom off. then open the bottom of the machine, and take off the black rubber hose (has a screw driven hose clip) this will allow the coin/button/bra thing/kids toy from the burger joint to fall out when you tilt the machine back and spin and jiggle it. good luck. buy a spare belt and read the belt too small posts. (its not too small!)
if its not spinning and the drum is siezed there is a coin or a forighn object jamming it, it can be removed but would have to go into an electrolux repair shop, if its in warranty no probs if its 2 years or less outta warranty they will repair it under a endemic failure, which in english means the bill would go to the manufacture hope it helps
put it on the small pulley first, then hold it on the large pulley with your hand and slowly turn the big drum, ensuring the belt stays on the big pulley as you move it. line up where you place the belt on the small motor pulley with the drum or it may slip off again.
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.
Then, there's that strut
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.
