But it must be under the drum iyswim as it is not inside where the clothes go. Do I need to get a plumber out?

Is there maybe something metal loose inside it?

PoorOldEnid Wed 10-Sep-08 12:08:57

you need to check the drain filter hole thingy

it could be something caught in there

maybe www!

Any idea where that is Enid?

look at instruaction manual

mine has a round thing on the front that you unscrew and pick hair clips and pennies out of

hmm missing any bra underwires?? mine fit thru the holes in the drum <sigh>

I fear that may well be what it is MNP. Off to check the instructions to see if I can get it out myself - Thanks Enid.

Bra underwire

I called a guy out to look at my machine and he pulled 2 wires out from the drain thingy at the bottom of the machine.

I wish MmeLindt hubby no refuses to take machine apart

he has to buy me a new bra as i could repair if given the lost bit back.

haven't informed him replacement wires can be sourced

Mine did the same thing.
Then died.
However the new machine is great.

Well, I emptied and cleaned the filter but there was only soggy lint in it, so I decided to run an empty wash and now the noise has stopped!

Might have been a button or something catching the sides.

(btw: you can get replacement wires!! Never knew that. Afraid my wireless bras go in the bin)

Mine has sounded like it has rocks in it all day as well so going to go and check the filter(whereever that may be...)

GreatGooglyMoogly Wed 10-Sep-08 16:36:44

Aaargh!! I have now done a real load of washing and the noise is back; whatever it is must have temporarily lodged itself or something. I am going to have to call a plumber aren't I? Presumably it could be dangerous?

mine makes that noise and I deal with it by... ignoring it blush

Really? How long has it been there? DH wants me to ignore it!

bobsyouruncle Thu 11-Sep-08 16:26:47

oh.... ages blush Still waiting for dh to do a load of washing one day, hear the noise and deal with it. But I fear I may have a long wait grin
