SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin

Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

John,

What are the first two numbers of your serial number i.e.10 through 17. I’m an owner like you not a repair person….. but I have a very good feel for machine issues and the repair of the machine. See my ratings under this nick name FAV6800AWDIY and my old original nick name dh1200s.

The biggest problem with FIXYA is they don’t ask the user for Model or S/N of the machine. I can’t believe how many professional repair folks jump in with comments and they have no clue as to what machine is being discussed.

You may end up going with a replacement if it’s the Outer Tub Bearings. I would remove the tub and try to replace before I would junk a $1000 but that’s me you would need to decide. This a weak repair area for me I have not replaced the outer tub bearings on any of the three FAV66800A’s I own but I feel confident I could do it. I buy these cheap and repair for resale.

Have you had the Clutch Pulley removed/replaced in the past for dC or uC error code failure in Spin Cycle?

I would drop the Clutch Pulley out and clean up/re-lube the One-Way Roller Clutches and check for signs of a tub seal leak. Then with the Clutch Pulley out spin up the Wash Basket CCW as fast as you can by hand and listen for bearing noise of the Outer Tub Bearings. Let’s make sure the One-Way Roller clutch bearing is not the bearing noise source. See this post for removing the clutch and doing maintenance and replacement. Clutch Fix Post

I have to post rest of this comment as a comment. This forum is not geared up for DIY responses.

Noisy drum, grinding sounds when the drum is spinning


Hi
The grinding sound is because of damaged or broken bearings.
You will have to see if the motor rotor bearing is damaged or the drum bearing before you change anything.

Aquarius 1100 wm63 very noisy spinning


Remove rear cover of washer.
Remove drive belt.
From inside the drum, spin the drum by hand, if it is noisy or feels rough, then main drum bearings have failed.
If no noise, then possibly motor bearings noisy.
Hope this helps Thankyou.

This is most likely the drum bearings failing.

Drum bearings normally last a long time (10 years or more isnt unusual), but quite often drum bearing failure is caused by a faulty drum shaft seal allowing a small amount of water through and in to the bearings. The bearings then start to rust and this accelertes how quickly they deteriorate.

Replacing a drum bearing requires well above average DIY skills, so unless you feel you can do it, can get hold of a tech manual, and can find a supplier for the bearings, it's time to get a quote from an engineer.

Hotpoint WF430 Noisy on Spin Cycle


Hi.

It could be loose balance weight, or worn drum bearings.
Remove belt and spin drum by hand from the inside, if you can hear a rumbling noise, or any noise, or it feels stiff to turn then the bearings have failed
If it is under 5 years old, then it should still be under warrenty provided you did not buy it from Comet or Currys.
If it is balance weight, you will be able to feel movement, there is one at top and one at bottom of m/c.

drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
