Hotpoint wmf760 aquarius

A terrible banging noise has recently developed on spinning. Is this the bearings? What can I do to fix it or do I have to get Hotpoint out? I heard this is a very common problem? Thanks

AS A TECHNICIAN, MOST OF THAT KIND OF TROUBLE I ALWAYS SEEN THE TIMER CONTROLLER IS ALWAYS DEFFECTIVE. YOU NEED A TECHNICIAN TO LET IT SEE AND REPLACE THE NEW ONE. IF YOU DON'T, IT MIGHT BE THE START OF FIRE.KIM

SOURCE: Hotpoint aquarius 1100 bangs while spinning

Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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 wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint 1200 wd62n banging noise when loaded but ok when its empty ?


There are many reasons that this could be noisy...

When you turn the drum (quickly) when it's empty does it rumble? Bearings, drum support or motor bearings.

If it sounds like a pneumatic drill when filled and spinning it could be drum support, bearings, balance weight or suspension.

These are not an exhaustive list but the usual suspects.

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.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

My hotpoint aquarius extra WMA36 is making a terrible banging noise whilst on final spin. When i open the door to take out the washing there was a smokey mist coming from inside the drum. Are the bearings...


hotpoint had a problem with the early bearings on these, so it would probably be the fault. or you may want to check the security of the concrete weights, one at the top and 1 at the rear of the tub.
