How to replace drum bearing for hotpoint aquarius+ wf740

When my machine is in full spin it's extremely loud but only when a load of washine is in, even really small loads cause a lot of noise. When the machine is empty it makes the normal sound. It's so loud that you need to shout over it to hear yourself.

How do you fit a new drum bearing?

    how old is your washer and what kind of noise are you hearing you are talking a major chore here and i don't think you can get the tub bearing separate anymore its pressed in the back of the tub and you have to buy the back half of the tub but it can be done whats your model number

My machine is just over 3 years old and although there is no play in the rear drum bearing it is very noisey on spin.
It gets progessively loud the faster the spin speed.

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 aquarius hotpoint 340, bearing gone


You have to split the drum to replace the bearings

The reason the bearings have gone is that water has leaked into them and the soap content has destroyed the grease

There is a carbon seal on the spider assy which attaches to the back of the drum , this normally cracks so the spider or seal has to be replaced

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust


It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.
