it's not named after that other car, is it? It's a hotpoint ultima super silent. Most likely suspect is the drive belt for the tub. Remove back cover and find the tech sheet stuffed in the unit for lots of secrets, shortcuts, and commonly replaced parts with the correct mfr part numbers. Check to see if the belt has come loose and why.
Remove rear access panel, and remove the drive belt.
Spin drum by hand, and if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, if no noise, then check motor for noise, if no noise, check the concrete wieghts are not loose, and that the dampers are not broken or worn.
Please rate my solution.
Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.
My machine did the same thing, I found it to be the heater element in the air box had come loose inside the casing and was hitting the sides of the air box. Removed air box from machine and resecured the element now all ok
