Hi, most engineers would charge £90 just for the bearings. It's quite a big job.
Hope this gives ou some idea.

You really don't want to know how but here it is. The bearing is located in the rear shell and is not removable the rear shell has to be replaced which means removing the tub assembly from the machine and completely disassembling. With 30 years of appliance repair the last one I did took about 3 hours.

SOURCE: Need to replace the door seal on a Hotpoint BWM129

For some front-loaders:
Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

I have a Hotpoint BWM129 washing machine and the Delay start and Superwash lights are flashing. Can anyone explain what fault code this is? The door locked light is also on.


Manual says to unplug maching from wall for at least 40 seconds to a minute. This will reset the unit. If that does not work you will need to call a service tech.

You are referring to the rear drum bearing that has worn away..
It means replacing the rear bearing and drum shaft.
It comes in a repair kit which you can obtain from Hotpoint.
It comes complete with fitting instructions.
Go the Hotpoint web site, and you should be able to order the parts on line.

Loud noise as drum turns,gets louder as speed increases.


There is no doubt that the drum bearings have failed from your description.
The normal procedure is to replace the whole drum and tub assy as a complete unit, this makes it a fairly straight forward repair, though relatively expensive.
To strip it down and replace worn bearings, is a very involved repair, and not one I would recommenend.
If the washer is less than 5 years old, then you can get it done under the Hotpoint 5 year part guarantee, but you would have to contact Hotpoint about this.

Plz rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint bwm129 making huming noise


Sounds like the rinse water can't come. Maybe the solenoid for cold water got stuck or a water filter needs cleaning? If the humming is louder, perhaps the drum motor (or drum) needs a little care or cleaning.

If all else fails, download the user manual and check the trouble checklist index. (Or; try learning your kenpo succession move sparring against laundry to clean it.)
