Excessively noisy when it spins. The faster the spin the noisier it gets.


Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........

I have a Hotpoint WF440 washing machine which makes a loud noise when washing, and an even louder noise when spinning. Sounds like bearing trouble. Any ideas, please?


this definatley bearing trouble. its one where you can fix yourself ONLY if your willing to take up the whole day doing it..
The problem with bearings is that once you get to them, it can be tricky taking them out of the shaft because they can crack and leave the outer shell of the bearing in the machine.

if you wanna try it your self then i have a similar solution you can use posted for a wma. the only thing diffrence is that its easier than the wma..

just let me know if you need help

Vibration problems


hiya
it could be a number of problems which are very common on the entire wma range.
1, drum bearings are really poor in these.
2, concrete block tapping, sometimes the bracket n the drums snap.
3, motor bracket snapped causing tapping.

i've found the plastic drums seem to be quite weak on the wma range to be honest so will more than likely be one of the above.

hope this helps
