This would indicate that the main drum bearings have failed, and this is a major repair.

Washing machine shakes badly when spinning.


If not an unbalanced load, then it is an unbalanced drum. Turn the drum by hand when it is empty and it should spin smoothly (not freely because it is attached to the motor so there will be resistance). Can you hear a knocking or grinding? Push and pull the drum in and out, again any knocking? With your hands at 3 and 9 o'clock push with one hand while pulling with the other and rock the drum back and forth. Try it with hands at 12 and 6. Does it feel loose or makes a knocking?
Grinding is usually a sign if the bearings going or gone and knocking may indicate a broken drum holder (sometimes called a spider)
If everything sounds and feels okay then it may just be the machine is not level or secure. Rock the machine and if it wobbles check the feet and adjust until no more rocking. The feet do bend or adjust themselves over time, even making some kind of impression on the floor that makes it settle to a different level.

Hotpoint aquaries wf321 is making a loud clicking/knocking noise when its in the spin cycle, to me sounds like a poss bearing gone or maybe something is caught up?


From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy or rumbling, then the drum bearings have failed.
It is possible that there is something caught between the inner and outer drum.

When my zanussi aquacycle 1200xc is on the fast spin cycle the spinning drum seems to be getting noisier of late.


Probably the main bearings are going, spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise at all, if it feels rough, or noisy, then bearings are failing.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Drum banging is it bearing when on spin


Hi,
This is difficult to work out as there are so many different symptoms. Here are my thoughts -

Dust from carbon rushes is black. Grey dust usually comes from a loose concrete weight. Loose tub weights are rare on this model but they cause a loud knocking noise which is often worse when the washing machine is revving up to spin and dying down from a spin (suspension problems are also often worse at this safe too). It's not normally a metallic sound though.

If the noise is coming from the motor banging against the sides of the machine then it will make the machine move when it happens. The whole machine may jump or move to one side. The motor often thumps the side of the washing machine on Hotpoint washers where the motor is fitted at the top of the tub and over to the right hand side. This is a daft place to fit a motor and only .I think they've eventually stopped now though.

It is normal to be able to push the drum to the side so that the motor hits the casing. If the suspension has gone, the tub should be twisted and leaning to one side more than the other or it just could be very loose. It's difficult to check suspension if you don't know how it should feel.

If the noise is coming from the inner drum hitting the heating element or throwing an object like a £1 coin (trapped between the inner drum and the outer tub) around, then the washing machine will be stable but the noise would still be a horrible metallic knocking. This is one cause I suspect.
