Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
My WF860 has developed a nasty vibration on the spin cycle, joined with a horrendous noise like it's about to explode! Whipped the lid off to discover the three chunky bolts that hold the concrete block to the drum 'loose'. However, these bolts can't be tightened up anymore, suggesting they are fully home. Having removed the bolts and then block, I can see the three supports are badly worn (presumably where the concrete block has been rubbing against them, working all the more loose, excerbating the issue). Question is, does anyone have, or could take, a photo of the top of their drum, less the block so I can evaluate the damage caused. Unless I can get this block fixed tightly to the drum, looks like I'll be forking out for a new machine!
There is no magic to the counterweight supports. if they are damaged, you will have to replace the tub and it is not a worthwhile repair. it is quite a common problem
