Rattle on fast spin

Our washinf machine (aquarius WM63) rattles as though something metal in drum. However I can't see anything when it has no washing in it so I assume its between the drums. Any suggestions?

Hi mate the rattle could be caused by a coin are a bra wire regards a coin you would have to take off the main pump hose connected to the drum our else take the heater element out and see if you can find it if it is a bra wire just rotate the drum until you see it and pull it out

My Kenmore when in spin cycle it shakes all over the floor rattling and shaking

I can't offer a definitive answer but I have had a little experience.

It is possible it is spinning too fast. The brain of the machine needs to know how fast the motor is spinning in order to control the speed. The motor is fitted with a tachometer sender for this purpose. It is important any replacement motor is fitted with an identical tachometer to the original.

The brain is programmed to cycle the spin slowly at first at increasing speeds to allow the washload to settle and for most of the water to be removed so when full speed is reached there will be less vibration. Perhaps the cycle is incomplete or absent and it is starting on a high speed spin...

The washtub suspension can become worn and weak even though it appears intact...

It is conceivable the drum is imbalanced - a drum that is nicely balanced will not vibrate when spinning without a washload.

Hi for changing the door seal check out the video section on there are a few videos on the wf including bearing change which also covers the door seal as well. As far as the noise in your machine it could be almost any thing...if it's a scrapping noise it may be a bra wire caught between the drum and container, if its a tapping noise it may just be loose wires hitting on the cabinet or you may have a coin between the drum and container if it's a loud rattle, you could also have something in the pump's hard to diagnose noises without actually hearing them sorry

Try turning the drum by hand from the front of the washer, if it feels rough o ris grinding or rumbling, then the main drum bearings have probably failed, also try lifting the drum up and down from the front, see if there is any movement of drum, if there is, then again it is a main bearing problem.
If all o/k, then remove the lower rear cover, and check the belt is o/k.

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.

When in fast spin there is a loud rattling sound as though there are stones in the drum

You could have something fast between the inner and outer drum, or one or more of the drum paddles is loose..
Remove lower rear panel of washer, remove the belt, and from the front spin the drum by hand, this this will show if the drum bearings are o/k.
There should be little or no noise from the drum.
If it is rumbling, or feels rough, then the main bearings have failed.
If ther is something caught, then you will hear it catching or clicking.
Hope this helps.

Aquarius 1100 wm63 very noisy spinning

Remove rear cover of washer.
Remove drive belt.
From inside the drum, spin the drum by hand, if it is noisy or feels rough, then main drum bearings have failed.
If no noise, then possibly motor bearings noisy.
Hope this helps 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

probably a balancing spring broken the load will go to one side of the drum when spinning.Needs to be taken care of before it rattles itself to death
