Its very noisy when its spinning

if it is very noisy there are things to check. 1 if the transit blots at the back have been removed. 2 that the machine is secure on the floor and level. 3 that the machine is not overloaded. this should solve most noisy hotpoint washers. if it is still noisy after checking all this the motor is on the way out or the drum. but most of time it is just the transit bolts and that the machine is not level. hope this helps.

Washing machine really noisy on spin!

Probably main drum bearings worn
If you turn the drum by hand and it feels rough or noisy ,then definately bearings worn and noisy.

Wm noisy

drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
