    RE above

    Many thanks for the solution. It was loose bolts on concrete balance weight. Bolts tightened, problem fixed.

    COST... NIL

    Once again many thanks!

    When we first purchased the WT960 2yrs ago it always made a loud vibrating noise, but assumed this was normal as my sister's did this also, but recently the noise got louder, to the point where it sounded like it was going to explode. My boyfriend took it apart to find the concrete weight was 'also' VERY loose, bolts tightened (though awkward to get to) and the machine is spinning almost silently, obviously bolts were loose from the start!!!!

Bearings faulty or another fault this model suffers from is the concrete balance weight retaining bolts shake loose, if it is the bolts tighten up as soo as possible. Regards Advisor

My WT960 was also very noisey on the spin cycle, but it had been like this since new, but became increasingly loud, to the point it sounded like it was going to explode. Boyfriend took machine apart to find the concrete weight had also loosened, bolts tightened, though awkward to get to. Now the machine spins ALOT silently than before!

Simpson 175 washing machine: spin cycle noisy and motor cuts out after short spin. Bowl feels stiff


Hi just read your posting.Now from the information on your posting the machine is noisy on spin and your motor is cutting out after a short spin.Is this correct?Now does the motor cut out during a wash cycle?If the motor only cuts out during the spin cycle , and with your machine being noisy on spin,I think the fault will be your bearings are corroded.With the bearings being corroded it puts more load on the motor causing the inbuilt thermal overload in the motor to activate and turning the motor off to save it from burning out.Please reply with additional information on, if it cuts out on wash and I am sure I can help you further.

Very noisy on spin cycle only


Hi, please describe the type of noise you are hearing. If it is a grinding type noise, it is likely to be the drum bearing.

Remove drum drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if there is any resistance,. or it feels rough or noisy, the the main bearigs have probably failed.
If it is o/k then check motor for worn or noisy bearings,
Please rate my solution.

Hi,my hotpoint wf541 washing machine has become noisy on its spin cycle,any ideas as to what is wrong with it,or can you recomend a repairer for me in Lincoln,uk?


Try spinning the drum by hand ,if it feels or sounds noisy, then the main bearings have gone, if no obvious niose, then it could be m/c not level, overloading,-loose balance weight)(s)-suspension spring broken or unhooked--there are other causes, but these are the usual things to look for.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Noisy spin cycle


It would be noisier than normal if it was not level.
Best way to tell if it is noisier than normal is to spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise from it.
If it is noisy or rumbling, or feels rough, then I would suspect that the drum bearings are worn and noisy.
An hour to complete a wash cycle is not abnormal, and they do do several rinses.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Very Noisy Washer!


Hello julierealtor how old is the washer? Try turning the inner drum by hand and see if it is noisey or moves up and down. If so then it is either your rear support of the inner drum that has failed or the rear bearings. If it seems fine, maybe you have something in the drain pump (which runs prior to and during the spin) that is causing the noise. If it is noisy during the drain, then you may either need to clean out the pump or replace it. Hope this helps.

Noisy washing machine


the agitator transmission may be the noise source because it turns with the drum during spin. may need a new transmission just to stop noise.
