This sounds like a classic case of main drum bearing or drum support failure, it is a major repair and not really a DIY repair, unless you are coversant with w/m's
It involves a complete strip down and in some cases it is neccessery to to have to replace the drum as well.
The cost of the parts involved is well in excess of £100.00,and it really is not an economical repair.
I think you would be better off buying a new washer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust


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.

Hotpoint aquarius wm64 loud banging noise when spinning with full load no noise when spinning empty i have found small pieces of plastic inside drum


Several possibilities here.
First and fore most is the drum support or main drum bearigs are failing., more likely to be drum support
The pieces of plastic you refer to are from inside the outer drum, because what is happening is the inner drum is catching the outer drum, and breaking the plastic inside.
You are going to have to strip it down to determine the exact cause, what I expect you will find is that the alloy 3 legged drom support has corroded away,a nd the drum has come loose.

Hope this helps you solve your problem

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

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.

Banging washing machine on spins


Hi. I don't know if your problem has been sorted yet, if it has not ,then it sounds to me llke the concrete balance weight is loose or broken

There are 2 of them, one in the top of the m/c, and one at the bottom, if either of them are loose, then that is your problem.

If loose, can be tightened up, if broken away from the drum then you have a major problem

It could be that the drum is coming loose and a bolt requires tightening. I would suggest that you cease use until you get this fixed. Yell.com will provide you with choice of qualified engineers who can assess and repair.
