    Thanks barkencoa for such a quick reply anyway sounds fine when i spin it by hand and dont seem to have any movement or any other problem other than when its spinning really fast even then it sound like something is being forced round the drum,then every now and again the noise goes for a few seconds but drum still spins ok.I was just wondering if my young children could have left a car or something in there somewhere somehow?

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.

    Hi Hiker1.

    I would definately say there is something in outer container from what you say, with a bit of luck it will find its way into filter.

My Hoover 750L starts its spin cycle but when goes to a really high spin it makes a noise.


Check your mounts and support springs---one of them maybe broke or loose---since you haven't described the noise this is the best i can come up with. GL

I think something (mechanical) is not in the right position so the bowl is touching its surrounding parts. It is better to get somebody or yourself to open it and fix the losen or deformed parts.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Washing machine makes a loud whining noise when in high speed spin that it has not made before. Noise seems to come from the soap inlet tube.


usually when a front load washer starts making noise in the spin cycle it's not good,most of the time it's from the owner using to much detergent,it eats the spider gear and then it's time for a new washer,the gear costs around 500 bucks,next it will start to bang around and get real loud,i've seen the rubber boot get ripped off because it bangs all around,if you're using alot of detergent most likely this is the start of your problem,when you read the back of the bottle the measurements are for a top load washer not a front load so you better check that,also you could have a broken shock,also you can pull the middle of the pump out and check to see if there are any filings in there,i've seen that before.put it on high spin and listen to it,if it sounds like a knocking sound don't waste your money and call someone in,change out the washer and watch the cd that comes with it and use less detergent,i hope this isn't your problem but when the noise comes from the spin cycle it's usually the spider gear.
