If overloaded or heavy items being washed it will spin out of balance.Try a lighter load to make sure its not just a one off fault. If no good its probably the drum bearings unfortunately.(needs engineer call out).

Very noisy on spin cycle, not out of balance


Hi, check leveling of machine, machine should be proper leveled on all side, use spirit level to adjust legs, there should be no rocking motion, in any direction after leveling, put hands on top of machine and try to rock it sids to side, there should be no movements, also check for overloading, be careful when washing things like bath towels, etc, they absorb lots of water, eg. one regular bath towel are equivalent, to six pants, six tops. or possible springs or bushings broken, you need open machine and check.

Ariston Margherita 2000 "AL109X" very noisy when spinning


To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.

If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand.
Also struts and springs must be checked.

REALLY NOISY


posted by mikey b from st Helen's. after experiencing a similar fault on my wt741.i set about determined to find the cause of the noise.On spin,particularly fast spin the washing machine was making a horrendous vibrating banging noise.i eventually traced the fault to the lower concrete weight which simply needed tightening. which is held on with 4 10mm bolts.the weight can be easily accessed by turning the washer on its side.support the outer drum with a small block of wood against casing before lying on its side. you will need a 10mm spanner to get on bolts.hope this was helpful !

Hi,my hotpoint wf541 washing machine has become noisy on its spin cycle,any ideas as to what is wrong with it,or can you recomend a repairer for me in Lincoln,uk?


Try spinning the drum by hand ,if it feels or sounds noisy, then the main bearings have gone, if no obvious niose, then it could be m/c not level, overloading,-loose balance weight)(s)-suspension spring broken or unhooked--there are other causes, but these are the usual things to look for.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
