Aquarius WF 320 Noisy Drum

Could anyone please tell me why our machine is making an incredible racket during spin cycles and a grating sound while washing ? could it be the bearings ? If so is this an inexpensive repair as cannot afford to replace machine nor get ripped off for repairs ? Otherwise the machine appears fine except the last coupla uses it has tripped the fusebox. am putting this down to the excessive strain on machine. Would really appreciate your help on this one

Re: Aquarius WF 320 Noisy Drum

Stop using your machine as it sounds like your bearings have gone completely as you say it also has tripped the fuse twice this is because there is so much play in your drum that it's most likely damabed your heater aswell. This now poses as a SHOCK or FIRE HAZZARD .If the macxhine is over 5 years old buy a new one as this fault will be very expense to repair

Could be your bearings for sure. And if you have been using the machine while the racket could be ruining you axle as well. So make sure your axle is fine before you change your bearings.......

Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from inside, if it feels rough, or it is noisy or rumbling, then the bearings habve fauiled.
Probably better to buy a new washer.

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.

Hotpoint WF220P has become very noisy during spin, especially at high revs. Can it be worn brushes or motor, or bearings? Otherwise all is OK.

Remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, could be a motor prob.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin
