Hi there,

My washing machine has a rattling/piercing noise when on very fast spins only. Normal spins with clothes are fine and there is no rattling when just turning the drum with nothing in (so I don't think its bearings?). It sounds like there is a metal object below the drum? It is a large metallic sound.

Is here a way to easily check that. And also how would it have got there? Through the plastic seal near the door (it doesn't lookk big enough for a coin).

I have tried moving the drum vertically and it moves less than a centimetre up and down (though obviously a fair amount backwards and forwards)

Any help greatly appreciated. I've previously had to refit the seal due to overfilling, and it's probably pushing 15years now so wouldn't be adverse to getting a new one, but if it is an object that I or an engineer can get out I'm happy to persevere.
