Suspension legs for hotpoint WF740P

I suspect that the suspension legs on my hotpoint wf740p washing machine are shot (there appears to be oil/grease coming out of them) as the drum seems very loose. There appears to be at least 3 different part numbers for the suspension legs. Are the 2 legs the same and which P/N do I require.

Hotpoint wd440 washer dryer. Noisy when spinning and rumbling noise when washing.. Could thus be bearing?


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html

Could be worn or broken dampers, or loose concrete balance weight.
This would cause the problem you describe.
There are 2 wieghts, one in the top, and one at the bottom of washer.
Check that the nylon locating pins are securly fixed in the damper legs, as sometimes they have been known to come out of socket.

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.
