Hotpoint WF430 Noisy on Spin Cycle

I have a hotpoint WF430, which runs fine until it goes into spin mode, as soon as the spin cycle kicks in the noise is unbearable.
Could this be the suspension legs being shot at, or could it be a loose balast weight?

Hi.

It could be loose balance weight, or worn drum bearings.
Remove belt and spin drum by hand from the inside, if you can hear a rumbling noise, or any noise, or it feels stiff to turn then the bearings have failed
If it is under 5 years old, then it should still be under warrenty provided you did not buy it from Comet or Currys.
If it is balance weight, you will be able to feel movement, there is one at top and one at bottom of m/c.

It sounds the worn out drum bearings. Due to the ingress of water into the bearings they are extremely difficult to remove, so if you're not a d.i.y person then I would advise to get replaced by someone. It take a considerable amount of time to replace. You have to literally take the whole machine apart to get to them.

How do i fix a noisy spin cycle on hotpoint wf250


Hi.
A noisy spin cycle is usually because the bearings are rumbling and/or collapsed.
Unfortunately this is not a simple job and would require a service call and probably a workshop.
Good luck.

The tick is probably the door lock engaging the machine should start filling with water after this, try putting it on a spin cycle if this works ok then it is more than likely to be a faulty inlet valve as a spin cycle only operates the drain pump and motor

Very noisy when Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 is on spin


It is the main drum bearings that is causing the noise.
There is no provision made for lubrication.
It can be done as a DIY fix, but it is a very involved repair, as it means having to remove the whole inner workings of the washer,
Not a task I would recommend unless you know what you are doing, and feel competent to tackle it.
Good luck.

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.


This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

Started having a noisy rinse & spin cycle, then stopped.


Open the washer door and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed. There should be little or no noise when you spin drum
This is a major repair, and I would not recommend a D.I.Y solution.
Other possibility is there is something in the pump, but you would only hear this when the pump is working.

Plz rate my comments.
Thanks.

Plug off the wall first. Take the pipe from the wall socket and lay it on the floor for the water to spill out. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.
