Noisey Washing Machine

I Have just bought a new Hotpoint washing machine and have used it 10 times at the most. (Not sure on the model) The last two times I used it, when it spins it makes a noise like something is falling inside it? its not a constant noise but its loud and sounds like there is something trapped?

Any advice would be great, as the last machine I had leaked down to the flat below, we arent having much luck at the minute!!

Probably a coin, dificult to get out unless you no how to access under the drum, if you use it a few times with a light load it will probably work its way down into sump hose filter.

Black powder and noisey spin on hotpoint washing machine

Black powder sounds like brushes are wearing down. If noise is severe, suspect bearings. With door open try wiggling the drum up and down. If it moves inside the tub, replace the bearings. Try new brushes first!

Hotpoint Aquarius Model WD61 Washer Dryer working but it's noisey

If you've just installed it for the first time ensure that transporting locks been removed (big screws under usualy yellow or white plastic covers at the back side of the machine)
Make sure that machine is standing flat on the floor with no swinging whe you try to move it, this can be achieved by adjusting four legs of the machine (one at each corner).
If neither of those helps than you need to identify when the noise appears what machine is doing at that moment. If the noise appears when it's draining, pumping water out, than your machine's pump is wearing out, or if it's noisy when spining (final spin) than bearing of the drum is wearing out.

Update me about your progress

Good Luck

Extremely noisy on spin cycle

I would agree with your initial diagnosis that it is the main drum bearings that is the source of the noise.,
try and spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough, or grinding then it is the bearings, also try lifting the drum up and down, if you can feel movement, again it confirms bearing failure..
If you are not sure, remove the belt and try it again, this is done from the rear, remove the lower panel and slip belt off. this will give you the opportunity to make sure the noise is not from the motor.

If the bearings have gone, it is a major repair, and I would not recommend a DIY repair, as it is a complete strip down.
If the m/c is less than 5 years old, you may be able to get it put right under the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee, you pay for labour, about £90.00, you would have to check with Hotpoint.
Plz rate my solution.

Hotpoint ultima wt960 washing machine noisy on spin

Bearings faulty or another fault this model suffers from is the concrete balance weight retaining bolts shake loose, if it is the bolts tighten up as soo as possible. Regards Advisor
