SOURCE: loud banging noise when machine goes into spin mode. sounds like it is banging on the side. Please help !

Usually this is an out-of-balance condition caused by too much weight on one side of the tub, move the clothes around and try again.

Hotpoint aquarius wml760 noisey when spinning with stuff in but ok empty


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

I have a Hotpont washer/dryer model BWD129 It started making a loud noise for a while when spinning now it won't spin at all. Please could you advise if it would be able to be fixed? Many thanks


I would say your basket drive is broke. Only when spinning, if it was this, it makes loud noises the whole time it spins, big thumps. This may be your problem. You would have to have someone look at it or call for an estimate. It would probably need replaced.

Very noisy when Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 is on spin


It is the main drum bearings that is causing the noise.
There is no provision made for lubrication.
It can be done as a DIY fix, but it is a very involved repair, as it means having to remove the whole inner workings of the washer,
Not a task I would recommend unless you know what you are doing, and feel competent to tackle it.
Good luck.

hi you have a worn camshaft it always makes noise when worn the tapping sounds louder when you accelerate.its important to have regular oil changes as the oil ways can become blocked and lead to this type of trouble if oil changes are over looked.also check for worn big end bearings that connect the pistons to the crank shaft.
