Something trapped in the washing machine drum? This video will show you how to remove it. Often, things such as bra wires, coins, socks, hair grips or other small items can get jammed inside.
If not removed, stuck items can lead to damage to your appliance. If you can see something is stuck but can’t easily remove it from your washing machine, this video will take you through it step-by-step. Also, if you notice any missing socks or similar laundry items, it’s best to check f they have been caught in the drum.
Another indication that an item is jammed, is if your washing machine is making strange noises. If you hear scraping or rattling sounds during or after the wash cycle, this video will help you identify where the noise is coming from inside the drum.
