Have you checked to see if the brushes on the motor need changing these wear down after alot of use over time.

Hotpoint aquarius wml760 noisey when spinning with stuff in but ok empty


more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

I have got a Hotpoint Aquarius + WF740 1400 spin speed. When the drum is moving slow inbetween cycles there is a wereing noise, In the wash cycle it clunks but it's ok in spin mode. When I move the drum...


there could be something stuck between the inner and outer drum, eg. a bra wire a common culprit.
inside the drum you have 3 lifters ( blue pillars). remove one of these by pulling it towards you.this will allow you to see into the inner drum. get a flash lamp and have a good look rotating the inner drum around.
if you see anything get a pair of pliers to pull in out as you cant get a nasty cut.
replace lifter as u removed it.
if bearings were gone would sound like a tractor while spinning.

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 bottom.............you can buy parts @ espares.co.uk this will give you idea of cost which maybe quite high.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63 Not Spinning Clicking Programmer


I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....


if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.

Hotpoint aquarius


What is the clothes capacity of the machine; try to limit within capacity. Try the "spin only" function aft putting the clothes. Then put the machine off & continue with the main cycle.
