Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Hotpoint aquarius wml760 noisey when spinning with stuff in but ok empty


more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

My washer machine makes alot of noise when it get to rinse cycle


It is possible that the drum is rubbing about when it is in te high speed mode and so make the noise. It is always good to observe what the noise is all about as this can be visible from the bottom of the washer.

You need to check the movements with a manual turning of the motor and drum. This noise can be from the belts, the bearings, the suspension or as said earlier the rubbing of drum due to heavy load or poor damping.
If this machine has a gear box for high speed , check the motor and the gear box for low/dry lubrication.

The washing machine is working alright but when its spinning, theres a noise that sounds like its something broken inside... But u cant hear the noise when its on fast spin.


Can be front the drive at the bottom of the washer. I assume this has a high speed spinning and so there is a gear box which can be having less lubrication. So make sure that the motor drive section of the drum shaft assembly is well lubricated so that the noise at high speed reduces.
if you can do a mechanical job , it will be good to remove and reset with good lubrication and maybe replacement of the bearings.

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...


Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

hi,
looks like there is some friction between the main and outer tub of your machine. there is generally a mechanism for smooth spinning of the machine in good rpms for wash-spin cycle. this could be because of rust formation, or mud collection. please refer your manual and remove the 3 screws behind the lower front plastic cover, and look for rust formation. scrape the rust and try spinning again.

cheers
