Turn drum by hand, if you feel it catching, its something between the drum and tub, put in through soap draw usually by children. Can be removed by taking out the heater element to get access under drum.
If it feels rough all the way round when turned and it can be lifted up slightly ( free play ) then its probably the drum bearings and seal failed.

SOURCE: hotpoint ultima F-05 errorr appears on machine

Error F05 indicates pressure switch jammed on full.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve the problem.

My Hotpoint Ultima WT960 washing machine makes what can only be described as a scraping sound when on a spin. It sounds like metal on metal. I have turned the drum with my hand but that doesn't seem to...


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Since you had turned manually the motor and drum and there was no noise, if so the motor bearings could be failing when in motion or with load.. Also the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link:

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.

I have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 - WM75. At the end


Check the filter and the actual pump itself for blockage.unless you have already done so, also pump itself could be faulty.

Washing machine - terrible noise during spin cycle


sounds like the drum is rubbing on some part of an exterior wall of your washer,.or you have a bearing going, or worst case scenario you have transmission problems and need to get a serviceman in to check your machine.But firstI would call the manfacturer and explain the problem they may be able to resolve it over the phone give them model no. Make and year of manfacture they hopefully can help you with this

Error E30 is a motor drive problem. Would check motor brushes as most likely fault.

Knocking noise on spin cycle


My machine did the same thing, I found it to be the heater element in the air box had come loose inside the casing and was hitting the sides of the air box. Removed air box from machine and resecured the element now all ok
