Hiya
it could be a number of problems which are very common on the entire wma range.
1, drum bearings are really poor in these.
2, concrete block tapping, sometimes the bracket n the drums snap.
3, motor bracket snapped causing tapping.

i've found the plastic drums seem to be quite weak on the wma range to be honest so will more than likely be one of the above.

hope this helps

Top loading washer vibrates quite a lot during spin cycle


If the machine is level and the feet are properly touching the pads it may be a fault in one of the suspension components or it could simply be the way the load is sitting in the machine during spin cycle. Towels get heavy when soaked and if the load is not balanced inside it will make the machine vibrate. Have you tried the machine without any clothes in it to rule that out?

Washing machine has a seizure during the spin cycle.


Try leveling the washer so that it is about half a bubble biased towards the rear. This usually helps front loading washers balance properly even if the installation instructions say that it should be perfectly level. This can also aid draining problems.
Also, some newer front loading washing machines are simply prone to dramatic vibration even when they is "anti-vibration" or "vibration reduction" systems. You can never go wrong installing an anti-vibration pad under the washer. Good Vibrations Inc, Kellett Enterprises and The Vibration Solution all have good products. The Vibration Solution seems to have figured out the best solution and offers excellent support and return policies.

If all else fails call the retailer and ask for an exchange.

Hotpoint WF100 Vibrating on final spin or fast spin


Hi Clive, if you look under the drum you will see two damper legs which are secured to the drum and the chasis, you will find that one or even both of these are defective, what happens is that one packs in and puts double pressure on the other resulting in that breaking down. take them off and examin them, they should both have a resistance to a fast pull, and should move quite easily with a steady pull applied.
Good luck hope it works.

Water stil appears in drum even when machine is turned off


It is possible that you have a bad water valve. Turn off the water when the machine not in use if the problem stops the water is probably coming in through a defective valve.

Hotpoint wf620 aquarius very noisy and not letin any water in


A washer usually shakes or vibrates when it isn’t sitting firmly and level on the floor or because it has an out-of-balance wash load. First eliminate the possibility of the latter—adjust the load if it has scrunched up on one side of the tub. Then check the machine for solid, level support. For the machine to work properly, the floow must be flat, level, and strong enought to support the heavy, water-filled washer without deflecting under the load.





1) Unplug the washer.

2) Look under the washer, and make sure all feet are resting firmly on the floor.

3) Make sure the front legs have locking nuts to keep them tight and that the legs have rubber caps. If they don’t, buy these parts and install them.

4) Make the front feet as short as possible by screwing them up into the machine. Place a level on top of the washing machine and adjust the front feet slightly if needed to level the washer; do not fully extend them. 

5) If necessary, tilt the washing machine forward. This will let the back feet self adjust. Recheck for level, and adjust the front feet again.

6) Plug in the machine, and run it empty through the spin cycle to see if it still vibrates.

7) If it does, call a repairperson or the manufacturer to ask about solutions.

Thanks for your question
