I have an older Hotpoint washing machine. It is top loading and the water inside comes out of the side, not the back.
Problem: It filled and started agitating today and started making a big high pitched whine. I did not let it finish, as I had to leave the house. Is is burning something up or can I run it that way?

hi, this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine. cheers
U will find the filter by removing the lower rear panel of the m/c.
Locate the large black hose at the right side, and remove clip securing hose. Get some thing ready to catch any water that will be in there, and remove hose.
There u will see the filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose,making sure that u get the hose on properly, test for leaks before u put the panel back on.
U will find this much easier to do if u tilt the m/c forward, and support it with something underneath.. Check inside the pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.
f05 is a drainage problem, ther may be something stuck in your pump.
its in the back of the machine in the corner. take the side hose off and unclip the pump from machine and look in to see the propellor may have foriegn object in.
need to know a little more really but here goes, if you remove the top and the drive belt is still on then it will be as straight forward as the motor brushes at fault they will need replacing as this is a common fault on these machines. hope this helps
