It is very likely that the bearings have failed. I have had a hotpoint wma33 fail at 23 months and had hotpoint fix it...

This is not an easy task to undertake on your own I spent a while looking into this.

If you have warranty (machine is less than 1 year old) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to replace... (They will do the whole drum its quicker). This should be free.

If you don't have warranty (your machine is older than 1 year) then still call Hotpoint - you will be charged £90 callout but parts are free for machines less than 5 years old. This is what I recommend.

or - do it yourself ( NOT RECOMMENDED)

I know two people who have purchased the bearings and spider kits - and wasted about 3 days because these things are really awkward to remove and refit. They both swear that £90 is a bargin after buying the spider and bearing see:
http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=954798&brand=&model=wma33&part=spider
This spider costs 61.25 + delivery - ouch.

As hotpoint will fit half a drum or full drum (Depending on what is on the van for £90) the actual cost of a half drum is 75.99 + delivery see: http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=639770&brand=&model=wma33&part=drum

and a full drum costs 176.96 + delivery
see: http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=639763&brand=&model=wma33&part=drum

They take away all the rubbish at the end also!

I hope this helps

Please dont forget to rate me as a fixya.

Loud noise on spin cycle...sounds like a bad bearing maybe????? any advice on this noise?


It's hard to pinpoint it from your description. But it might be either the motor coupler, or transmission. Does it agitate alright with no noise? It could be center shaft bearings too if it only makes the noise in spin. Either way, with transmission, or center shaft bearings, the transmission needs to be removed. The motor coupler is a lot easier. It's what drives everything and is used instead of a belt. If the rubber is worn out, it can make an awful noise. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

Machine makes awful noise during any movement, spins very slowly, not enough to spin out. Making an awful noise, like stripped gears and won't drain


There are three reasons for such awful noise during spinning. Either the drum or the bearing turning the drum. Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Thanks
