    The drum is smooth when spun by hand. I'll have a look at the drum weights etc to see if anything is obviously loose. My Dad was a service engineer for Hotpoint so it is one of the few things I haven't bothered to get acquainted with. Sadly he died a year ago and in response the vacuum, dishwasher, oven nd now washing machine have all had a wobbler.

    Just for your info, the machine is level and stable.

SOURCE: Hotpoint aquarius 1100 bangs while spinning

Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Started having a noisy rinse & spin cycle, then stopped.

Open the washer door and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed. There should be little or no noise when you spin drum
This is a major repair, and I would not recommend a D.I.Y solution.
Other possibility is there is something in the pump, but you would only hear this when the pump is working.

Plz rate my comments.
Thanks.

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.

Thankyou.

Machine bangs and jumps all over as soon as the drum starts moves


It is the pulley shaft that has worn out more than likely. Remove the back cover and give the belt a tug or two if there is ANY play at all the shaft has gotten worn on the pulley assy. If it were the bearings I would be surprised as they don't go out nearly as often as the pulley. New pulley and belt should lengthen the life of the appliance considerably. Good Luck

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.
