Question about Washing Machines

Very Loud banging on washing machine spin cycle

1) My Hotpoint Aquarius WM63P has suddenly begun to make a very loud banging (like a road-drill) during the last 2 washes & ONLY during it's spin cycle.
2) Light coloured items have some black circles on them (pattern matches drainage holes in the drum)
3) Items have small slithers of plastic stuck to them, they look melted/twisted)
4) Inside of drum has developed large indentations - appears as if a nut/bolt or something has been whacking the exterior of the drum!?
5) Tried to access the back of machine but ONLY the top panel & small lower panel at bottom on the rear can be removed. No visible signs of loose or missing parts discovered from the limited view down the sides or underneath of drum.

ANY advice or info on what may be causing this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust


It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

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.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.
