Hi Clive, if you look under the drum you will see two damper legs which are secured to the drum and the chasis, you will find that one or even both of these are defective, what happens is that one packs in and puts double pressure on the other resulting in that breaking down. take them off and examin them, they should both have a resistance to a fast pull, and should move quite easily with a steady pull applied.
Good luck hope it works.

Washing machine makes a loud vibrating noise when spinning and sprays grease onto washing


It sounds like the main bearings have failed, try turning the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is niosy, then the bearings have failed.

Hotpoint WMA20 will not fast spin


It is rare that it would be the bearings as there would be play in the tub, it would be noisy and would probably leak. There is a small electrical box in the bottom of the machine. This is the speed control for the motor. You will also find the wireing diagram in a plastic bag in this location. You can check to see which wires require current to activate the different speeds.
I hope this helps.

On the final spin the washing machine is so loud you cant even be in the same room as it, it is not vibrating externally as far as i can tell


Remove rear access panel, and remove the drive belt.
Spin drum by hand, and if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, if no noise, then check motor for noise, if no noise, check the concrete wieghts are not loose, and that the dampers are not broken or worn.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fast spin vibration


Is the bearing for the inner drum loose or the drum turning with a wobble (empty)? If that checks ok, then possibly one or more of the outer drum dampers is broken, worn out, or out-of-place. Shake the inner drum in various directions--there should be damped motion in any direction.

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse


Hello thesquiffys
Welcome,


You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:
