Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Open Question

My hotpoint aquarius 1000 washer dryer wd 22 rattles and sounds like something is grinding when you hand turn the drum but when it is working it does not make the sound. Also when on full cycle the washing machine jumps around the kitchen and sounds like he drum is hitting the inside of the machine. But when on quick cycle it des not do it. Please help as I have a family of 3 young children and I do alot of washing.

SOURCE: 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.

Find the pipe that comes out of the bottom of the drum, this may contain coin, muck, etc. Clean. This pipe leads to the small pump that draws the water out. If your clean of the pipe does not work the machine.......there could be a fault with your pump..........which you can/cannot clean.

SOURCE: WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

sound like the contact points on the timer are probebly dirty or arched to where they are not making good contact. you can take and clean them with a piece of emery cloth if you are mechanically inclined and can take the timer apart. Also there's a set of contacts down by the motor ti check too.
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.

Hotpoint WD 865- washes ok, dryer won't work makes loud popping


sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.
best to get an engineer out i'd say.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA37 - the drum is not turning, even by hand


Remove rear panel of washer, slip the belt off, then try the drum to see if it turns, if it does, then the motor is the problem, if it does not, then the main bearings have siezed, or there is something fast between the inner and outer drum..
If it was noisy on spin prior to this happening, then it is more than likely the main bearings that have siezed.
Plz rate my solution.

Thanks.

Drum makes grinding noise when turning


Hi.
spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then you probably have drum bearing failure.
Another possibility is one or more of the drum paddles may have come adrift..
These can be replaced.

Hotpoint wd420


if the drum is tight to turn ,then the main bearings have probably seized, or their could be something fast in the drum. Remove belt, and try to turn the drum by hand , it shuold be free with no resitance.
If it is noisy or feels rough, then the bearings have gone.
