Your pump is probably stiff. Bearing is going out.If the pump is ok I would look at possibly replacing the thrust bearing. Their could be something between tubs.

Hotpoint ultime wt640 has a slight squeek seem to be on front around door area had top off and turned drum motor and drum seem fine and springs ok


Remove rear cover of washer, remove drum belt,and from front of washer, spin drum by hand.
There should be no noticeable noise.
If you can still hear sqeek, then it could be a drum bearing that is dry or starting to fail. or the drum is rubbing on the front of the door seal
You should be able to detect what it is this way.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Front loader noisey


Hi.

If you remove the belt and turn drum by hand, it should revolve freely and without any noise.

If it is noisy or feels stiff, then you proabably have main drum bearing failure.

Could be expensive to put right

Tip the machine back remove the belt try to turn the drive pulley manually . sorry the larger pulley in the centre. if you can turn it counter clockwise and feel the inner drum moving then the thrust bearing is ok. if not you may need to replace it.Also a bad lid switch can cause this problem.
