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...


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

Dear fixya, I have a hotpoint aquarius wma52 which sounds like it grinds when drum turns. I gather it may be the bearing but I don't see how to take off the back and check to replace.thankyou


HI,
First of all, is the noise only heard when the drum is rotating or when the pump is running? This really makes the difference. Sometimes an object can rub on the outer tub during rotation and cause the same noise, other times, I have found foreign object within the pump and caused the same problem. So when is the noise heard is very important to lead you in the correct direction.
I will be glad to assist you if you like

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

How do i fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Loud noise as drum turns,gets louder as speed increases.


There is no doubt that the drum bearings have failed from your description.
The normal procedure is to replace the whole drum and tub assy as a complete unit, this makes it a fairly straight forward repair, though relatively expensive.
To strip it down and replace worn bearings, is a very involved repair, and not one I would recommenend.
If the washer is less than 5 years old, then you can get it done under the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee, but you would have to contact Hotpoint about this.

Plz rate my solution.
Thankyou.

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.
