Hi I have a Hotpoint WD61D washer dryer and during the spin cycle of the wash the machine makes an almighty racket. Sounds like something is broken or loose inside and often it sounds like there is a...

From the symptons you describe, it is 1 of 2 possibilities that is causing the problem.

1- the main drum bearings have collapsed, thus causing excessive movement on drum, this is turn allows the drum to catch the outer plastic drum, thus breaking pieces of it off.

2- The main drum shaft has fractured, causing the drum to turn off center, again causing the inner drum to catch the outer drum, and breaking the plastiof the outer drum.
Either way, it entails a strip down to determine problem, and at the age the washer is, I would not cosider it a viable repair, as either way, it will be a repair bill in excess of well over a £100.00,and could be a lot more if the plastic outer drum has to be replaced, which is a distinct possibility.
Take the plunge, and treat yourself to a new washer.

I have Kenmore 110.76932691 dryer & 110.28912790 washer in my rental. One of them is putting gray curved marks on my clothes. They resemble pencil marks. Would those be coming from the washer or the...

most probably the dryer is causing this.  the felt that holds the drum in alignment on the front panel is worn or has come loose allowing a gap to form between drum and front and so clothes can become wedged in the and taken for a spin around the drum and causing marks.

How do you change the belt on Maytag washer model sav2555aww?


If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine. Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum. Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn. While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck, I hope this helps

My dryer is making a very loud screetching noise when the dryer is running. it is a full washer and dryer up and down from one another. electric

There are guide wheels and a tensioner in the back that hold the drum steady and the belt tight. The bearings on these can dry out and start to make some very irritaing noises. Pull the unit out and take the back off. Turn the drum slowly by hand and you will probably be able to tell what is makeing the noise. Some light motor oil or sewing machine oil should fix your problem. While your there it would not hurt to get a few drops of oil on all of the rollers and the tensioner pulley.

Hi My WD440 washer drier will not go into spin on either fast or slow. I can hear the pump running but thats all that happens. Can you help me. The machine is empty of water and the load is not too heavy....

Remove the rear cover and check the motor drive belt which may be broken or loose. Check the motor and drum pulleys for tightness. Also, verify that the motor turns when it is supposed to. If it doesn't turn, turn it by hand to make sure that it is not bound up--drum or motor. If ok, then either the motor is bad or there is no power to the motor.

My zanussi washer dryer wjs 1397 w drum is not turning

It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.

Water leaks

I had similar issue. Fill tube running from the bottom of detergent tray to the washer drum was plugged.... (by a sock!!!). How did it get there? I'll tell you. You see the drum seal (around the inside of the door) is not a tight seal. You can actually reach up behind it from where it meets the top of the drum. Anyway in my case, a sock made it's way through that seal and outside the drum and into the drum containment vessel. So when the drum spun (to dry the clothes and empty the water) it made a terrible noise. The sock became lodged at the base of the fill tube opening and plugged it thus not allowing any water into the drum. Instead, when filling, the water just flowed out from the bottom of the detergent tray and onto the floor. I hope this helps.

Hotpoint wd420

if the drum is tight to turn ,then the main bearings have probably seized, or their could be something fast in the drum. Remove belt, and try to turn the drum by hand , it shuold be free with no resitance.
If it is noisy or feels rough, then the bearings have gone.

Wont spin or drain

The drain pump is jammed or clogged up. Remove the filter cover and check for bobby pins, coins or bra wires. If clean, remove drum to pump hose from the pump and check for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand. It should turn freely. If pump is not free, replace it.
