Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, My Hotpoint TVM570 Aquarius is making a loud screeching noise occasionally. It isn't doing it every time my partner just used it for an hour with no issues. However I used it for 5 minutes this morning and it was like nails on a chalkboard. Thanks in advance

Wonder if you are overloading the machine and the noise is the drive belt screeching. if it sounds similar to a loose fanbelt on a car, it could be drum bearings that are seizing up (check by manaually rotating the drum. if it spins freely its ok) or the drive belt is getting worn and needs replacing

SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.

SOURCE: Aquarius Hotpoint WD440. 1400 Spin

hotpoint Wd440. I had the same problem, lights flashing and water not draining, First drain your water (syphoning works but tastes ****), if the machine drains then you know its not blocked. Then put the machine on M for about 5 mins, then put it on fast spin. This should do the trick, it worked for me anyway. Good luck.

SOURCE: Hotpoint aquarius 1100 bangs while spinning

Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Either the belt is broken or possibly the motor starter has failed. Very often the belt. Be warned though, modern day tumble dryers use stretch belts that can be very difficult to fit.

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

Hi,i have a hotpoint aquarius wf340.which makes a very loud banging noise every time it spins,it works fine otherwise!


I had the same issue with a similar machine. Need to replace the spindle assembly (or otherwise make sure) that the belt is tight. Try replacing belt first.
Make sure machine is level. test it by putting some stuffed sockes in the machine, let them get thrown around. Listen for the banging noise, apart from the soft socks hitting the tumbler.

Hotpoint Aquarius belt slippped


Hi.

It sounds like your washer may have a major problem.

If it was so noisy, it sounds to me as though the main drum bearings have gone, or the motor bearings, that being the case, I woukld recommend that you do not use the washer until it is checked out.

Hope this helps!!!
