Hotpoint VTD00 Banging loudly once per rev

As above.

When I turn the drum by hand the bang seems to come from the right side ( as you look at it)

    This morning I stripped the dryer down - yeah, rear mount/bearing/axle had broken.

    Crap for a machine only 18 months old.

    Bought a new one today in the sales - NOT a bloody Hotpoint!

    Broken bearing - and shaft had cut into the metal of the frame of the back panel, before shearing completely.

    Not easy to repair - machine 26 months old, consigned to the scrap heap.

    Hotpoint cooker - same age, just packed up as well !!!

    A cheaper option is to replace the whole dryer instead of just the drum..Sorry for the bad news

when a machine gets old it is always normal for the vibration and banging to occur, then, after the vibration it settled down smoothly.this is due to worn fan belt .bearings worn out and the preasure on the dont get alarm .but you will soon have to replace the washer as the banging and the vibration will get worse eventually.or change the fan belt.and replace bearings.which can be done by a qualified personel.good luck.

Drum not turning properly

Sounds serious! If the drum is floppy, it probably means bearings on rear shaft.Or there may be something caught between the tank and the wash basket.Check for wire or similar caught in holes in was basket. Try turning the was basket slowly by hand to see if the banging happens at the same place......Nomess

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.

Drum will not move

Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.

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.

Machine banging when in fast spin

if the noise is coming from inside the drum then it will be the bear ings if this machine is less than 3years old then this is what bust hotpoint they changed the bearing setup and put a spring on it which its the spring that is the complete failure u need to take the complete drum out strip this put the new bearing set in but without the spring this wil put at least 2-3years on the bearings its a big job and costs about £120 to fix u r accually better off buying a completely different washer no good are hotpoints anymore m8
