Drum noisy and appears to be jumping all over the place

There is a three-legged yoke that is behind the spinning drum. Sounds like it's on it's last leg, and will soon comletely break off. Big do-it-yoursef job, suggest repairman or new machine with warranty.

Washing machine Spinning cycly drum wobbles noisy

It sounds like one or both of the suspension struts has either broken or come away from it's mounting. Inside the washing machine there are a couple of concrete blocks used to counter balance the motion of the drum when it is turning. The suspension struts (just like a cars) dampen the effect so that the machine does not wobble all over the place. The struts (two normally) are firmly anchored to the washing machine chassis at the bottom and the other ends are attached to the drum itself, usually on either side. Check that these struts are not damaged and that the mounting bolts etc. are not loose or missing.

Noisy/shaking dryer

There is a bearing on the drum and guides at the front of the drum. You will have to remove the top of the machine to see the drum parts. Unplug it first. The top then pops off. Look at the back of the drum to see if the bearing is bad.

New Simpson Top loader washer very noisy/rocking

sounds like you havent undone the transit bolts- theyre on the back of the machine, 2,3 4 maybe five quite large obvious bolts, around the drum but on the back. they are to keep the drum steady while in transit to stop the machine bouncing around in the van - you are unlikely to have damaged it - Undo these bolts - they should be mentioned in the manual-

If you cannot here it catching, then leave well alone, if it is still catching, then you could to try to locate it by removing the lower rear cover of washer, remove the large black hose on bottom of drum, and see if you can locate it from the bottom of the drum.
Hope this helps.

Loud noise when spin drying, rumbling sound, sounds like concorde taking off! Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 washer dryer WD62

Remove rear panel of washer, and remove drive belt.
Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough, or is noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, quite a big job to do.
Please rate my solution.

Water pump may be leaking. Check idle pulley and big counterweight spring that stedies the drum. Go to for a diagram. Have model number ready.

Door will not open. lock handle floppy.

take top off and see if you can feel for the door peg sticking thro the interlock and operate by hand.
also, you can chew away the door handle and operate the door peg with a small screwdriver.
