Hi mate it is not possible to replace the bearings in this machine but you would need a bit of patient first you would have to take off the front panel to do this take out the soap drawer and the two knobs off take off the four screws around the soap drawer then take the three screws along the front panel and at the bottom then to take off the door seal find the opening along the band and with a small prise it open and take it off than undo the seal around the rim release the plug at the inter lock and lift off the front metal panel disconnect the connecters at the motor-heater and stats undo the two springs on top of the drum then lift the drum out of the machine take off the belt and flywheel and motor take out all the screws around the drum pull the drum apart put back on the flywheel screw and tap it with a mallot hammer to release the metal drum with metal drum removed get a metal bar to knock out the bearings also check the shaft on the metal drum for wear put new bearings in with mallot hammer and put machine back together as reverse order as I have written

Does the outer drum on a hotpoint WT540


All outer tubs on most Washing Machines these days are sealed.
Therefore you cannot split the tub to get inside and change the bearings. instead you have to change the whole tub assembly as a complete unit. Not an easy job.

Am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not


Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.

Change drum bearing on hotpint aquarius wf540 .


This is usually a very hard thing to do,, due to the fact that you have to separate the plastic drum housing to reveal the metal drum, and than you need to free it from the back portion of the plastic drum housing

Hotpoint aquarius 1100 bangs while spinning


Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The drum bangs on the spin


Two possibles for this are aloose balance block or cracked drum spider.The front block is most prone to coming loose.
To check spider rotate drum little by little and pull towards you to check for movement.
Post back if further help needed.

How to replace drum bearing for hotpoint aquarius+ wf740


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.
