Hotpoint WM A54

Hi
how easy / difficult is it to change rear drum brgs on a Hotpoint WM A54 washing machine? I have done this on a Zannusi some years back. I have only just noticed the noise the other half says she has heard it but not as bad as now. There are no leaks visable yet.
Your help is appreciated

About the same level of difficulty as zanussi. however on some wma series the bearings are not available seperately - new drum and tub- so check first

What is causing the tub of my top load washer to bang against the back side of the washer while it is in the spin cycle? The washer also vibrates violently.


sounds like the damping system is the problem. The drum may have moved out of place or the damper(s) have become faulty in some manner. I used to have a hotpoint washer that tried to destroy the room it was in by travelling around it after the drum had fallen off its mounts. I bought a new machine, my thinking being that there is no point in taking a risk of having a real disaster if I set it to wash and then go out.

Does the outer drum on a hotpoint WT540


All outer tubs on most Washing Machines these days are sealed.
Therefore you cannot split the tub to get inside and change the bearings. instead you have to change the whole tub assembly as a complete unit. Not an easy job.

Why no spin?..Is the water fully pumped out, is it out of load balance? This happens when too few items are in the drum the machine senses this and will not spin.......Hope this of some help

Drum will not turn


Remove the back panel or look under the unit. There is a belt that goes from the drum to the motor. Either the belt is broken or the motor is no good anymore

How do you change drum bearing on lg wm-1290fhb washing machine


It is a difficult job in terms of handling! You require spanners and bearing puller. You require one extra assistance to hold the drum and pull from the front.

You have to change the full set of Bearings with same type and design. Check the bearing housing and the shaft before fixing new ones! Replace the water seals if any

Washing machine makes noise on spin machine type LG


THE SOUND YOUR HEARING IS THE REAR BEARING BETWEEN THE STATOR AND THE DRUM. IF YOU'LL PULL THE BACK PLATE OFF THE WASHER IT'S PROBABLY STARTING TO GET A LITTLE DRIP RIGHT ABOUT NOW TOO. BEARING COSTS AROUND $20.00 OR SO AND IS RELATIVELY EASY TO CHANGE. YHE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE SURE IT'S THE BEARING WITHOUT PULLING IT OUT AWAY FROM THE WALL IS OPEN THE FRONT DOOR AND SEE IF YOU CAN SHAKE THE DRUM UP AND DOWN AND SIDE TO SIDE.

Knocking on WM63


Hi there!

Yes , you need new dampers for it.

These are easy to fit from the rear. Look at online parts stores under your model, and you should get them delivered within a week.

Check also that any foam bumpers are still stuck on the sides.

Hotpoint wma54 washing machine


sorry but not the job i would recommend to anyone not done or watched it done before its about the most difficult job to do on any machine, even though in my 20 years experience this is the easiest machine to do a drum bearing change on, most of the machine has to be stripped down, removing all the front panel / timer panel / door seal and drum front / drifting out the old bearings fitting the new ones and rebuilding the machine, not counting testing for and rectifying any damage the drum has done to the rest of the machine and surrounding parts, good luck if you attempt it, sorry

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.
