Excessively noisy when it spins. The faster the spin the noisier it gets.


Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........

My partner's Hotpoint WT960 makes very loud grinding sound when spinning. I suspect the drum bearings are gazacked. Do I need to change the drum support and bearings & seal or just the bearings? Is it...


Hi Joe.
A lot depends on construction of drum.
Remove the top cover and look at the plastic outer container, if it is a one piece consonstruction, then unfortunately you cannot fit new bearings, as it it comes supplied as a complete unit.
However, if you can see the 2 drum halves held together with screws, then you can fit new bearings.
You will not know if the spider or drum shaft needs to be replaced until the it is stipped down, a fifty- fifty chance
It is an involved repair as it entails removing the whole container from the cabinet, and do not fit any other bearings than the genuine ones.
It comes as a bearing and seal kit from Hotpoint.

Hotpoint WMA35 - Noisy on spinning


This could be the bearings.

If it is you have two options:
1 - Buy another washing machine
2 - DIY possible for about £30 with all the RIGHT TOOLS, £100 if doing it properly. And even with the right tools this will take you about 3 hours, probably more.

To replace the bearings you NEED to have:
1) The parts - The replacement bearing kit (£30) and hotpoint recommend a new spider (£65) as well.
2) A tool to push the drum shaft from the casing.
3) A tool to remove the beaings. It is possible to buy a new rear casing with the bearings already fitted for about £70.
4) Patience and a supply of tea!

Method
1 - disconnect everything and I mean everything see number 2.
2 - remove the drum casing from the chasis
3 - take off the pulley wheel
4 - open the casing
5 - remove the drum from the casing. DO NOT USE A HAMMER as the shaft deforms very easily (good job I've a new "spider"!)
6 - fit new "spider" if using. Here is where you find the bolts are rusted completely solid from spider to drum and require drilling out.
7 - remove bearings from casing (hence the need for the bearing removal tool)
8 - fit new bearings and rebuild machine (hence the need for the bearing fitting tool)

However I stopped at number 7 due to not having the right tools and I have no idea how much the right tools cost.

Trust me, take option one! £100 is a third of a new machine!

Hotpoint WF541P Bad smell and door seal turning black


The only way to get that smell gone is to replace he seal. This is pretty tough but can be done. then start leaving the door open when not in use.

We need Bearing


Sadly, some of these machines were manufactured with a completely sealed drum making bearing replacement impossible. If the shop is selling you a complete drum, I would say you have such a machine otherwise they would sell you a bearing kit. Lots getting caught with this one :(

Bearing kit?


When you re-install the bearings make sure you use a good red appliance grease it is for high temp high speed use. Use a good amount of it then install the bearings the same way you took them out.
