Hotpoint WF865 Drum getting stuck?

During a normal wash, randomly the drum appears to be getting stuck during the anti clockwise cycle only. The machine will try a couple of times and then just stop until the counter goes to 1 minute and then does no more. If you open the door and turn the drum manually there is no friction and is free to turn. Thanks for your help.

Noisy bearings

ok, turn the nut at the back anti clockwise, i normally jam the pully into the cut outs in the drum, when you have taken off the nut hold the inner drum inside the outer drum and tap he pu;;y anti clockwise, not too hard or it will crack, remove pully, place nut flush with shaft on the thread and you will be ablt to tap the drum out without damaging the thread.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin

Sounds like a loose screw/bolt/nut during the spin cycle

There is nothing wrong with your machine. Don'f bother with the sound , You said you threw 2 pair of jeans, so its bottons are causing the sound against the drum during cycle. Finished your laundry and worry no more. To make sure, throw some another clothing asides form jeans, like shirts, and feel the normal silent of your machine.

Good Luck,

Changing rear drum

I presume you mean the inner drum, this is major strip down, remove the top, remove the front panel and the control panel, remove and split the out drum in half, remove the drum pully, refit the nut and hit the spindle with a hammer using the nut to protect the thread, this will force the drum spider out of the bearings, reverse the process to reassemble. Regards and good luck Advisor
