    RE above

    Many thanks for the solution. It was loose bolts on concrete balance weight. Bolts tightened, problem fixed.

    COST... NIL

    Once again many thanks!

    Washing not completing cycle - F10 showing on panel. When clothes coming out of machine they are soaking wet - machine not spinning clothes. Machine is 3 months old.

    When we first purchased the WT960 2yrs ago it always made a loud vibrating noise, but assumed this was normal as my sister's did this also, but recently the noise got louder, to the point where it sounded like it was going to explode. My boyfriend took it apart to find the concrete weight was 'also' VERY loose, bolts tightened (though awkward to get to) and the machine is spinning almost silently, obviously bolts were loose from the start!!!!

Bearings faulty or another fault this model suffers from is the concrete balance weight retaining bolts shake loose, if it is the bolts tighten up as soo as possible. Regards Advisor

    sorry where are the bolts situated



My WT960 was also very noisey on the spin cycle, but it had been like this since new, but became increasingly loud, to the point it sounded like it was going to explode. Boyfriend took machine apart to find the concrete weight had also loosened, bolts tightened, though awkward to get to. Now the machine spins ALOT silently than before!

My machine has been very noisy for a few weeks and today I put on a cycle and the drum didn't spin at all. Any ideas, ny machine is 10 years old!!

Noise could be worn drum bearings in which case pulley would wobble knocking off belt, hence no spin......

Simpson 175 washing machine: spin cycle noisy and motor cuts out after short spin. Bowl feels stiff

Hi just read your posting.Now from the information on your posting the machine is noisy on spin and your motor is cutting out after a short spin.Is this correct?Now does the motor cut out during a wash cycle?If the motor only cuts out during the spin cycle , and with your machine being noisy on spin,I think the fault will be your bearings are corroded.With the bearings being corroded it puts more load on the motor causing the inbuilt thermal overload in the motor to activate and turning the motor off to save it from burning out.Please reply with additional information on, if it cuts out on wash and I am sure I can help you further.

Very noisy on spin cycle only

Hi, please describe the type of noise you are hearing. If it is a grinding type noise, it is likely to be the drum bearing.
