Le Crueset 1.8-Qt. Enamel on steel whistling teakettle u-shaped metal piece fell out
There are two parts to the whistle - the hinged whistle bit and the black base that is attached to the spout. They are joined by a pin that passes through the base and through a bracket that is fixed above the spout, and through the bottom of the arm on the hinged whistle. Remove the pin - it is a push fit - so you need a rod of the same diameter. It will then all come to pieces. The U shaped metal spring sits in the bracket on the spout - the open end and the slope on the spring to the top. Then put the bits back together and replace the pin! This is tricky but do-able as all the holes have to line up. You need to have plenty of light to see what is going on. Once aligned the pin goes back in okay but don't try to force it. If it doesn't go in your alignment isn't right.

I burned potato soup in my Le Creuset dutch oven.
Go buy a scraper for a ceramic hob and a can of barbeque or oven cleaner.
Spray the cleaner on and leave it for 15 minutes put on a pair of rubber gloves and use the scraper to break the surface of the burnt on stuff.
Make sure you keep the blade of the scraper as flat as possible to the surface of the pot.
Once you have scored some of the surface spry on some more cleaner and repeat the process
I clean off burnt casserole dishes using that method
