Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 1300 , front loader

Hi, I recently bought this second hand it is approximately coming upto 5 years old, however when it goes onto the spin cycle the drum seems to vibrate and knock a lot. Is it because we only half loaded it or could there be something more sinnister going on. Thanks.

Half loads will vibrate more than full load
check transit bolts are removed
if vibration persists, then fault is probably shock absorbers worn

What would cause a nasty metal nashing sound when machine goes from medium spin to high speed spin during spin cycle?


Hi dear,
As I know it happens to other Asko washer models as well. From 800 rpm going up to 12-14 or 1600 rpm. That sounds happens due to vibration generated from motor. I do not thing you can do much about it unless changing motor,which is costly remedy. Thanks.

Have a look for coins etc stuck in the drain pump or the tub outlet hoses especially where they fit onto the tub. If a coin or other foreign material blocks the water flow when draining , these machines wont spin properly.

I have a wma 10 which is a couple of years old. The door seal now leaks when the machine goes onto a spin? Is there anything that you can suggest?


Sounds like there is too much water left in the drum as it goes into the spin cycle, and the centrifugal force of the drum spinning is forcing the wate past the door seal probably, needs the filter cleaning, or the door seal itself may require replacing.

Drum does not spin


We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$).  So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards.  We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake.  Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.

Kenmore Washer Spin Issue - Need help troubleshooting


Check the coils on the wig-gag. Its a couple of bars that engage the spin drive or the wash drive. If you look at the machine when its running you will see it moving back and forth, hence the name. If the coil engages the spin cam, but it still will not spin then the tranny is your next culprit.

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)


Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
