    My BWM12 was sounding like a jumbo jet, and now it sounds as though something is rattling around the drum when it spins. I guess it's the 'main drum bearing'?? Would I need to order any more parts other than this one?

Try spinning the drum by hand ,if it feels or sounds noisy, then the main bearings have gone, if no obvious niose, then it could be m/c not level, overloading,-loose balance weight)(s)-suspension spring broken or unhooked--there are other causes, but these are the usual things to look for.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

How do i fix a noisy spin cycle on hotpoint wf250


Hi.
A noisy spin cycle is usually because the bearings are rumbling and/or collapsed.
Unfortunately this is not a simple job and would require a service call and probably a workshop.
Good luck.

The ball bearings of the drum are worn-out. Replace them. It is difficult to replace on your own as it is a mechanical job requiring labour. If you know how to do it, then go ahead. Manufacturer service will charge you heavily. Cost of the bearings are not much if you buy them yourself. So get it done by a good washing machine repairer.

Hi our hotpoint wf541 starts its cycle as normal but doesnt spin and the mini load and reduce crease buttons flash as well as the on/off button, any ideas of how i can fix this thanks.


hi i had the same problem.
its either your filter is blocked or your pump is not working.
after switching the power off, remove the front bottom panel of the machine and unscrew the filter cap on the right behind that panel. check it's intact and clean iside, if not clean it out or replace it and that should fix it. be careful screwing the filter cap back in and make sure its on tight.
to check your pump is working you can pull out the machine and check that water is coming out of the hose by putting it on the pump out / drain cycle after pouring in some water for it to pump out.

We have a Hotpoint aquarius wf541. Our clothes keep coming out with small holes in them. Any idea why?


Wrong cycle. The agitator is too aggressive. Also - look for damage on the agitator.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

Hotpoint wma76 front load very noisy on spin cycle


If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.

Danby washing machine noisy only during spin cycle


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Bearings faulty or another fault this model suffers from is the concrete balance weight retaining bolts shake loose, if it is the bolts tighten up as soo as possible. Regards Advisor
