I just need some advice please I have a WM52 1000 spin and I think something has gone through the holes in the drum as when the drum is going round I can hear something catching. How easy is it to get it out and if it is left in there could it cause any damage?
Curious, is a made up name that I use to re-post questions I answered in my original Washerhelp forum (before I closed it to new questions). The reason I've transferred them to this new forum is to make them easier to find, more useful, and to add more relevant information and related links - as well as to host them on a much better forum.

The most common object that gets stuck inside a washing machine, and makes a noise when the drum turns is an underwire from a bra. 

 

I've written an article on this subject here - How to remove an underwire or obstruction from the drum
