My Hoover Elite 1210 toploading washing machine seems to make a horrible off balance sound on the spin cycle - even when there is a small load on. What can I do to fix it?

Could be bearings or more likely the concrete weight at the bottom of the drum is loos give it a shake from under to check...Good luck

During the lest spin cycle ,the drum spins like its out of balance, with bad knock , viberation. even after making sure the load is balanced in the drum. even without a load or water, (empty) it still...

The machine sounds as if it might be unsteady. If it only happens on the spin it is probably slight. Try levelling it at the feet, using a spirit level helps enormously to get it level.

My washer is making a horrible noise when it goes into the spin cycle. It sounds like it is about to explode.

The bearings on those washers go bad and the washer gets very loud during the spin cycle. It probably won't explode but for what it might cost to fix it you might want to blow it up yourself

When my washer goes into the spin cycle, it vibrates horribly.

sounds like you have a transmission problem. yes, i said transmission. washers have a centrifical gearing system which acts like a transmission. what you describe sounds like a bad bearing. definately a job for the repairman. good luck

WF865 noise when spinning

Washers have to be balanced. Some have balance adjusters either inside the dryer as explianed above or on the bottom to level the washer. try to balance it by turning the bolts slightly or the bottom portion of the washer to level it. Or else they want to shake apart. Also by distributing the clothes evenly so it won';t be all to one side can help. do not tighten the screws all the way. Just tighten them to the point of getting the right balance.

Hotpoint ultima wt960 washing machine noisy on spin

Bearings faulty or another fault this model suffers from is the concrete balance weight retaining bolts shake loose, if it is the bolts tighten up as soo as possible. Regards Advisor

Squeak upon spinning

Hi, I wanted to comment on this because I have the Majestic MJ9200 Washing machine front load for the RV. I am having the exact same problem and I cannot use my machine at this time. This is NOT an unbalanced load problem. An unbalanced load will cause a loud banging noise because the drum is off balance. There is something wrong inside your machine. Mine never had this problem before either and an unbalanced load does not cause this horrible screech while on the spin cycle. My machine like yours made the noise only on certain spin speeds, high 1500 rpm spin the first time and when I adjusted the spin cycle just to see what happened it stopped making that horrible noise. I washed another load and it began that same screetch while spinning and it was then in all RPM ratios available on my model.

My husband took the top off the machine and could not see anything evident but when looking into the front of the machine we could tell that is seems the interior drum is much looser in the washing machine than in the dryer. There are two drums on the front load. A larger outer drum and a smaller inner drum. The inner drum is what is looser in our machine and the noise is a very loud screetch while spinning the water out of the clothes.

Is your machine under any kind of warranty? Mine is not and I am waiting to get it fixed.

Good luck on getting yours fixed and perhaps we can both help each other out on this one although we have different brands of machines...
