This is usually a very hard thing to do,, due to the fact that you have to separate the plastic drum housing to reveal the metal drum, and than you need to free it from the back portion of the plastic drum housing

The machine makes excessive noise when spinning and the drum feels to have some movement. I think that the bearing needs to be replaced. The machine is a 6 kg Not tried to fix it yet. Need advice on how...


quite a hard job if you never done this work before.....Depending on model bearings can be on its own kit or you will need HALF DRUM complete with prefitted bearings cost of this is around £75 ...plus labour at around 2 hrs.....If its under 5 yrs old Hotpont give a 5 yr warranty call charge is around £100,although this is all you would pay as the Parts are under warranty..Hope this helps.

I have a Hotpoint WF540 washing machine. When it goes into fast spin, the spin cycle is quite noisy....on slow spin it is fine......could this be a bearing problem? If so how easy are they to replace?


Sounds like drum bearings most cases you need to buy half drum with bearings fitted if your very good at diy no problem if not call engineer.1st check concrete weights are not loose top and bottom.............you can buy parts @ espares.co.uk this will give you idea of cost which maybe quite high.

Aquarius WF540 sounds like bearings gone How do I take the top off to examine?


No need to remove the top.
Just spin the drum by hand from the front.
If it feels rough, or is rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
There should be no noise at all.
Hope this helps.

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.

Drum bearings


as per soultion 2 this is a hard drawn out job involving a lot work and there is no guarantee the bearings will not shatter when trying to knock them out. better get someone in!
