SOURCE: Hotpoint VBSR2080WOWW washing machine vibrates with loud noise

hi,
this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine.
cheers

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius wm64 loud banging noise when

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

SOURCE: Very noisy when Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 is on spin

It is the main drum bearings that is causing the noise.
There is no provision made for lubrication.
It can be done as a DIY fix, but it is a very involved repair, as it means having to remove the whole inner workings of the washer,
Not a task I would recommend unless you know what you are doing, and feel competent to tackle it.
Good luck.

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius wml760 noisey when spinning with stuff in but ok empty

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

Is it possible to change the bearings on this model?


sealed units are separate to the tub and drum
I would first remove everything down to the outside drum as the noise could be from an obstruction ( coin/s bra wire, metal objects etc)
At 3 years I would not expect bearing trouble in a sealed unit so explore all other avenues of the noise first
bearings will be noisy at all cycles and not specifically at high speed spin
before you touch it -check the warranty period and if inside that period call the technician

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...


Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

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.
