Question about Washing Machines

Hotpoint WF640 very noisey drum bearings.

The washing machine is starting to make more and more noise from the drum. I suspect the bearings are worn. Is this a cost effective repair or is it better to replace the machine these days? If the repair is feasable can I do it myself?

Black powder and noisey spin on hotpoint washing machine


Black powder sounds like brushes are wearing down. If noise is severe, suspect bearings. With door open try wiggling the drum up and down. If it moves inside the tub, replace the bearings. Try new brushes first!

Noise when agitateing wash only


Remove the belt, and spin drum by hand from inside, there should be little or no noise, if there is then it is possible the drum bearings are failing.
I f no noise, but there is when you put belt back on, then possibly bearing in motor noisy

My machine is just over 3 years old and although there is no play in the rear drum bearing it is very noisey on spin.
