Guess it's a bearing in the drum, though just my appreciation. If you are not a tech in washing machines, you should call a reapir service to get it dismounted and replaced

Where is the fillter in a hotpoint wf540 washing machine? there is no fillter in the bottom pannel

Depends on the production date of the washer.
If there is a removeable plastic trim at the botton front of washer, remove it and if you cannot see a filter there, then remove lower rear panel of washer, locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum, remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.

I have a Hotpoint WF540 washing machine. When it goes into fast spin, the spin cycle is quite noisy....on slow spin it is fine......could this be a bearing problem? If so how easy are they to replace?

Sounds like drum bearings most cases you need to buy half drum with bearings fitted if your very good at diy no problem if not call engineer.1st check concrete weights are not loose top and can buy parts @ this will give you idea of cost which maybe quite high.

Aquarius WF540 sounds like bearings gone How do I take the top off to examine?

No need to remove the top.
Just spin the drum by hand from the front.
If it feels rough, or is rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
There should be no noise at all.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine noisy when on a spin

  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.

    Change drum bearing on hotpint aquarius wf540 .

    This is usually a very hard thing to do,, due to the fact that you have to separate the plastic drum housing to reveal the metal drum, and than you need to free it from the back portion of the plastic drum housing
