Hotpoint WD62 W/D. Works OK empty but bangs when full

Hotpoint WD62 W/D. Works OK empty but bangs when loaded, drum turns freely, suspect it could be the suspension leg/rod. Could this be the case and if so how easily are they changed ??

Sure easily. Plug off the wall, open up behind to check if any springs have come off, check the shockabsorber, bolts.

Hotpoint 1200 wd62n banging noise when loaded but ok when its empty ?


There are many reasons that this could be noisy...

When you turn the drum (quickly) when it's empty does it rumble? Bearings, drum support or motor bearings.

If it sounds like a pneumatic drill when filled and spinning it could be drum support, bearings, balance weight or suspension.

These are not an exhaustive list but the usual suspects.

Hotpoint wd62 had to bang door to make it work, now stopped altogether could it be knackered interlock.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word 'yes' and glad you know our technical jargon!
It calls for a call- to your local service engineer unless, that is, you can change it?
Good luck,

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.
Thanks.

Try taking the top off, power off obviously!! and remove the draw unit, there is a pipe that runs from there to the drum.... I found a sock in mine that was the problem !!

Hotpoint WD62


try fuse on plug this may be gone, also the door interlock switch, try a light bang with fist near door catch see if this will do it, what i do suspect is the door inerlock is faulty, this is a safety device which locks the door when machine is in washig/spinning mode it aso stops machine working when you open the door, this is also a safety device, good luck al. xxxx
