Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust

I have a hotpoint washer wf740 aquarius 1400 and recently it started making a terribly loud noise during fast spinning - when I looked around the back of the machine, I saw that the back of the drum had been banging against the back causing the noise and producing brick dust - would new springs fix this problem or is it something else? please help!

    My Hotpoint Aquarius WMF 760 washing machine appears to be working alright. However, it constantly emits a series of three beeps throughout the cycle.

    The rear drum bearing often fails and can cause these symptoms. Disassembly and new bearings and/or outer drum required in that case

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.

I have got a Hotpoint Aquarius + WF740 1400 spin speed. When the drum is moving slow inbetween cycles there is a wereing noise, In the wash cycle it clunks but it's ok in spin mode. When I move the drum...


there could be something stuck between the inner and outer drum, eg. a bra wire a common culprit.
inside the drum you have 3 lifters ( blue pillars). remove one of these by pulling it towards you.this will allow you to see into the inner drum. get a flash lamp and have a good look rotating the inner drum around.
if you see anything get a pair of pliers to pull in out as you cant get a nasty cut.
replace lifter as u removed it.
if bearings were gone would sound like a tractor while spinning.

Washing machine - terrible noise during spin cycle


sounds like the drum is rubbing on some part of an exterior wall of your washer,.or you have a bearing going, or worst case scenario you have transmission problems and need to get a serviceman in to check your machine.But firstI would call the manfacturer and explain the problem they may be able to resolve it over the phone give them model no. Make and year of manfacture they hopefully can help you with this

Hotpoint aquarius 1100 bangs while spinning


Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
