One of the common causes of strange sounds in your washing machine is due to objects getting into the drum that shouldn't be there. Our research has shown us that the main culprits are coins and bra wire.

To test the effects of items in the drum,

Check with the Door Seal and Drum:

  • Our search showed us that most of the items will, in fact, stay in the drum or catch in the door seal. Items that stay in these areas, can do damage over time but the risk is that they will fall below the seal, between the drum and the outer plastic tub. Items that get here can potentially write off your washing machine.
  • Solid items that do make their way between the drum and the tub can make an excessively loud noise during a wash cycle. But when rotating the drum by hand you may not hear anything at all.
  • If you do suspect that you have an item between the drum and tub. Stop the machine and call for washing machine service repair.
  • If a broad wire has ended up in your wash and if you're lucky it might catch in one of the holes inside the drum. So if you hear a scratching sound, have a look inside the drum, and see if you can fish it out.
  • Finally, any metal items that get caught in the seal or drum, and remain undetected can rust over time and pass on that stain to your clothing.  

Check with Lint Filter:

  • Some of our items made it down here, to the lint filter. If you suspect something is caught in the filter, you need to check it. Firstly remove the plastic cover, before undoing your lint filter make sure you have a shallow container in place to catch the water, or if you haven't got one to hand, lay down a towel.
  • If your machine has a drain hose then pull it out from its housing, and remove the cap. Once this is drained, there shouldn't be much water left in the lint filter. If your machine doesn't have a drain hose, lay a towel out and slowly undo the lint filter. Once you've got your filter, remove any item from within it, and remove any items that have also caught in the housing. 
  • If you notice that your filter is a bit moldy and grimy, now would be a great time to give it a quick wash. Once the filter and its housing have been cleared of debris, just screw the filter back in.
  • If your washing machine is making any peculiar or strange noises, then turn it off by stopping the washing program. You can find out how to do this by checking your instruction manual.
