Aquarius WF 320 Noisy Drum

Could anyone please tell me why our machine is making an incredible racket during spin cycles and a grating sound while washing ? could it be the bearings ? If so is this an inexpensive repair as cannot afford to replace machine nor get ripped off for repairs ? Otherwise the machine appears fine except the last coupla uses it has tripped the fusebox. am putting this down to the excessive strain on machine. Would really appreciate your help on this one

    no noise during wash but it sounds like there is something against the metal drum when in spin.

Stop using your machine as it sounds like your bearings have gone completely as you say it also has tripped the fuse twice this is because there is so much play in your drum that it's most likely damabed your heater aswell. This now poses as a SHOCK or FIRE HAZZARD .If the macxhine is over 5 years old buy a new one as this fault will be very expense to repair

Could be your bearings for sure. And if you have been using the machine while the racket continued......you could be ruining you axle as well. So make sure your axle is fine before you change your bearings.......

Hotpoint Aquarius WDL540 Washer/Dryer - The machine runs a cycle up until a fast spin - then trips the electric.

The issue with the Hotpoint Aquarius WDL540 Washer/Dryer tripping the electricity during the fast spin cycle could be due to several factors. Here are some steps you can take to try to resolve the issue:
  1. Check the drum balance: Make sure the load is evenly balanced in the drum. If the load is unbalanced, it can cause the drum to spin unevenly, which could trip the electricity.
  2. Check the motor: If the motor is not functioning properly, it could cause the machine to trip the electricity during the fast spin cycle.
  3. Check the belt: If the belt is loose or damaged, it could cause the drum to spin unevenly, which could trip the electricity.
  4. Check the suspension: If the suspension is worn or damaged, it could cause the drum to spin unevenly, which could trip the electricity.
  5. Check the wiring: If the wiring is damaged or frayed, it could cause a short circuit, which could trip the electricity.
If you're unable to resolve the issue with the above steps, it's possible that the machine may need to be repaired. In this case, you may want to consider contacting Hotpoint customer support for information on repair options.

The washer is making a very loud noice and i noticed slight smell of burning during cycle! The drum seems very unstable too! Could this be the drive belt? Is this fixable or am i looking at a new...

Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from inside, if it feels rough, or it is noisy or rumbling, then the bearings habve fauiled.
Probably better to buy a new washer.

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint WF220P has become very noisy during spin, especially at high revs. Can it be worn brushes or motor, or bearings? Otherwise all is OK.

Remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, could be a motor prob.
Please rate ,my solution.
Thanks.
