Hi.
It definately sounds like the drum bearings have failed.
It is a DIY job, but not easy, as it entails stripping the m/c down,
If it is under 5 years old, then it should be covered by a 5year warranty., you will just have to pay for the labour, certainly the cheapest option.

Washing machine makes noise when spining


What kinda of noise? If it's banging, it's an unbalanced load and you need to open the machine and realign the contents. Or the agitator may need to be adjusted If it's a squealing noise, you may have something caught around the adgitator. Anything else snd we'd more info

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.

Can a control module from an aquarius wf000g be swapped with one from an identical wf000g??


So long as they have the identical figures on the module, and the models of washers are the same then you can safely interchange modules

WATER IS POURING OUT THE DISPENSER DRAW OF MY WF000G


Normally if you take the soap slide draw out,you will see a hole underneath where the slide draw was. It normally blocks up with undesolved soap. Clear the channel then retry.Or sometimes water pressure is to high and then tends to splash internally causing water to drip out. Also make sure the slide draw is cleaned properly..

Hotpoint VBSR2080WOWW washing machine vibrates with loud noise


hi,
this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine.
cheers
