The whole drum assy comes out through the front of the m/c.
It is required that you remove the top cover and front panel altogether, and detach everything that is connected to the cabinet and remove the hoses from pump and dispenser. It is not a job to be undertaken unless you know what you are doing.

Hotpoint ultima washing machine wma74 drum not turning


If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

My hotpoint wma74 front load washer makes a very loud thumping noise on the spin cycle ive got a feeling it could be the dampers but would like some more info please, ive run a the cycle empty and there...


It does sound as if at least one of your dampers are gone. Unplud the appliance from the wall, take the back cover off and see if there is any movement when you try shift the drum. If there is a lot of play on one side, that damper is likely gone.

Door locking & drum noisy


It sounds as though the main drum bearings are failing, if you spin the drum by hand and it feels rough or sounds niosy, then it is definately the main bearings. there should be little or no noise when you spin the drum by hand.. Re the door lock,I do not think the two problems are related, could be a faulty door lock that is taking too long to release.

If the m/c is under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it put right under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee

You pay for labour, all parts are free, and in your case the cost of parts, would in excess of £100.00
So it would be worth a phone call to Hotpoint to confirm if you are covered.
Plz rate my solution,
Thanks.

When spining it makes very loud noise , like aeroplane when start


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.

Best way to check if the main drum bearings have gone is to;
  1. Remove back panel of washer
  2. Remove drive belt.
  3. Spin drum by hand from the inside of the drum, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main bearings have gone.
If there is no apparent noise, then you will have to investigate further.
If I can help further, pleas let me know.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle


Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....
