Hotpoint wma76 front load very noisy on spin cycle

Just lately this washing machine's spin cycle has become so noisy that you can't stay in the kitchen whilst it is spinning. Someone said it might the bearings need replaced?

If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?


Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

Extremely noisy on spin cycle


I would agree with your initial diagnosis that it is the main drum bearings that is the source of the noise.,
try and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough, or grinding then it is the bearings, also try lifting the drum up and down, if you can feel movement, again it confirms bearing failure..
If you are not sure, remove the belt and try it again, this is done from the rear, remove the lower panel and slip belt off. this will give you the opportunity to make sure the noise is not from the motor.

If the bearings have gone, it is a major repair, and I would not recommend a DIY repair, as it is a complete strip down.
If the m/c is less than 5 years old, you may be able to get it put right under the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee, you pay for labour, about £90.00, you would have to check with Hotpoint.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hi,my hotpoint wf541 washing machine has become noisy on its spin cycle,any ideas as to what is wrong with it,or can you recomend a repairer for me in Lincoln,uk?


Try spinning the drum by hand ,if it feels or sounds noisy, then the main bearings have gone, if no obvious niose, then it could be m/c not level, overloading,-loose balance weight)(s)-suspension spring broken or unhooked--there are other causes, but these are the usual things to look for.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
