Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Hotpoint aquarius extra washer dryer, model wd64
It has for some time banged and jumped at the start of the spin but then settled down and carried on ok. but now at the start of the wash as soon as the drum starts to turn the whole thing bangs and jumps all over literally moving the machine then it stops and sits for some time before trying again.
I dont think it is bearings, it seems as though the whole thing is jumping.
could it maybe be the suspension rods?
It is the pulley shaft that has worn out more than likely. Remove the back cover and give the belt a tug or two if there is ANY play at all the shaft has gotten worn on the pulley assy. If it were the bearings I would be surprised as they don't go out nearly as often as the pulley. New pulley and belt should lengthen the life of the appliance considerably. Good Luck

I may be way off beam here, but could it be what we suffered from, when we failed to take out the long bolts which prevent excessive movement of the drum during transport? When the spin cycle started the whole machine went beserk, rocking and banging all over the place. This happened a couple of times before we finally twigged and removed the bolts. All OK now. Thankfully no lasting damage.
