How much for plumber to remove wire from washing machine?

Apparantly this is quite a common problem so I thought at least someone here would have experienced it.

We have a bra wire stuck in the washing machine, a tiny bit is sticking up out of one of the holes (it can't be wrenched out with pliers though).

I wanted to know if anyone had called out a plumber for this so I could get a rough idea of the cost (rip off I'm sure).

done it myself with something similar in the past. All I did was unplug the machine then took off the back of the machine, then at the bottom of the drum you will see the heater element. Unscrew the 2 screws holding the element in place and take it out. From there I then used some long nosed pliers to grab a hold of the wire. Took about 15 minutes and no doubt saved a fortune.

Here's a good forum off domestic appliance people who could advise on a price or anything else CLICKY FOR FORUM

Thanks simplyjimbo. Will check that out later.

csiman - Nothing to cut. Tiny bit sticking out, can barely grab it with pliers.

then just push it completely through and it will work its way out of the drum

ps. most people suggest popping bra's into a pillowcase to prevent this happening. I shove them down the the sleeves of workshirts instead.
