SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

SOURCE: noisy bearings

ok, turn the nut at the back anti clockwise, i normally jam the pully into the cut outs in the drum, when you have taken off the nut hold the inner drum inside the outer drum and tap he pu;;y anti clockwise, not too hard or it will crack, remove pully, place nut flush with shaft on the thread and you will be ablt to tap the drum out without damaging the thread.

I have a IDL146 washing machine, always the 1400 spin cycle was noisy but now it sounds like a jumbo jet taking off! Are there bearings that can be replaced by a DIY person? If so,please can you tell me...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
These are the bearings making noise.
http://www.yourspares.co.uk/parts/hotpoint/washing-machines/widl146/parts/ys75567/bearing-kit-HPTC00203002.aspx
However.. this is not a task the average mechanic will be able to accomplish. It involves complete disassembly of the cabinet, the removal of the outer tub front cover and finally removal of the inner tub.
Additional issues that can be encounterd are:
1. Establishing a proper "Tub balance" post bearing / seal change
2. Outer tub seal leaking in the front of the machine.
3. Drive belt damage
4. Tub spider damage if the bearing is very difficult to remove.

This is one of those tasks that has resonably priced spare parts for the initial problem but, can very easily result in the need for several other spares and added expenses.

If your going to DIY just understand what your getting into and take your time. Make sure to clean the front outer tub seal quite well as it will leak if there is even a hint of debris on the seal post repair.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

WMT01 washing machine makes a very loud noise on the spin cycle, is this a bearing?


Remove belt, and spin drum by hand, if it is noisy,or feels rough, then it is the main drum bearings that have failed.

Noise when spinning


Remove drive belt and spin drum by hand, if it is noisy, or feels rough, then the main bearings have failed, if no noise, then check for noisy motor bearings.

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 :(

How to replace drum bearing for hotpoint aquarius+ wf740


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.
It gets progessively loud the faster the spin speed.
