SOURCE: My aqualtis is very noisy on spin

In most cases the bearing is pressed into the drum. Take your model # over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I have a aquarius hotpoint 340, bearing gone


You have to split the drum to replace the bearings

The reason the bearings have gone is that water has leaked into them and the soap content has destroyed the grease

There is a carbon seal on the spider assy which attaches to the back of the drum , this normally cracks so the spider or seal has to be replaced

A hotpoint aqualtis aqxx149pm spinning loudly


Hi, This is a common problem with the hotpoint range. It will be the main wash bearings that have failed and need replacing. This is a very easy process but is quite time consuming. Remember tho change everything that is; Bearings, and bearing spider and front tub seal as you dont want to have to do it again in a short time or have leaks coming from the front.
Good luck and get back to me if you need any further help....................

Suspect bearings gone


I do not advse you to attempt to change the bearing, it is a very involved repair, and you need to know what you are doing. the normal procedure is to change the whole drum assy.
Check with Hotpoint
