REALLY NOISY Hi, I have had my Hotpoint WT741 for two years and just lately it seems to be really noisy - in fact it sounds like an aircraft landing in the kitchen! It really is deafening. I don't remember it being that noisy when i first bought it? Can you help please.

Posted by mikey b from st Helen's. after experiencing a similar fault on my wt741.i set about determined to find the cause of the noise.On spin,particularly fast spin the washing machine was making a horrendous vibrating banging noise.i eventually traced the fault to the lower concrete weight which simply needed tightening. which is held on with 4 10mm bolts.the weight can be easily accessed by turning the washer on its side.support the outer drum with a small block of wood against casing before lying on its side. you will need a 10mm spanner to get on bolts.hope this was helpful !

YOur bearings in the back of the tub have worn out! This is caused by using powder soap. This is a very common problem and is around 400 bucks to fix.

Fisher and Paykel dishwasher noisy fan


Have you got your dishwasher on an extended drying cycle?

Normally it works for about 10 minutes after the wash cycle is complete - not hours.

My tumble dryer squeaks really loudly when its going and seems to be taking ages to dry - any idea?


Check the following:
  1. Idler pulley - It keeps tension on the main drive belt and when it is worn, it can be squeaky and noisy. Replace then.
  2. Glides - Attached to the front bulkhead of the clothes drum for support. When worn, it can be noisy and squeaky.. Replace then.
  3. Rollers or wheels - They support the clothes drum. When they are are worn, you should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
  4. Blower wheel - It pulls air over the heat source through the clothes drum past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. It may wear out over time. If it is noisy, it may be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.

Whining sound from motor on Frigidaire upright freezer


Hi: It sounds like you bought a frost free freezer as it has a fan. The fan will come on to circulate the air. It will not necessarly run continuosly. The noise is most likely coming from the fan. I sold Frigidaire freezers for years and they are noisy compared to a refridgerator. If you think it is louder than it was when you bought it, I would replace the circulating fan. Also look at the back wall for frost as it could be a bad defrost heater blocking it with ice. Most likely just the fan though. Since it's in a detached garage,and you won't have to put up with the noise inside your house, it could run a while before failing. The fact it's getting cold is a very good sign.Also as you asked 2'nd, a freezer is ok in an unheated garage. Don't put a refrigerator in there. Unless It is a Whirlpoll Gladiator that is designed for such applications. Use www.searspartsdirect.com to find out where the fan is if you feel it is necessary to replace it. Its not a tough job if you are handy. Their shipping is expensive so you might want to buy it locally.

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.

Audio on videos terribly noisy and hissy


Low-res audio and AVI video is probably the best you're going to get. It is a still camera first, after all.

Door locking & drum noisy


It sounds as though the main drum bearings are failing, if you spin the drum by hand and it feels rough or sounds niosy, then it is definately the main bearings. there should be little or no noise when you spin the drum by hand.. Re the door lock,I do not think the two problems are related, could be a faulty door lock that is taking too long to release.

If the m/c is under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it put right under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee

You pay for labour, all parts are free, and in your case the cost of parts, would in excess of £100.00
So it would be worth a phone call to Hotpoint to confirm if you are covered.
Plz rate my solution,
Thanks.

Hotpoint Aquarius belt slippped


Hi.

It sounds like your washer may have a major problem.

If it was so noisy, it sounds to me as though the main drum bearings have gone, or the motor bearings, that being the case, I woukld recommend that you do not use the washer until it is checked out.

Hope this helps!!!
