SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Maytag neptune washer noisy when in spin cycle. also there's a small hole located in the back of the machine on the drum with metal shavings coming out of it. The noise is a loud grinding noise. could...


You have a bad rear bearing in the outer tub. The entire outer tub would need to be replaced to resolve this issue.
Check your owner's manual to see what kind of warranty you have on this part. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you as this is an expensive repair!
Good luck!!

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Neptune MAH5500 Neptune has progressively gotten louder on spin. Very loud noise sound like bearing going. Continues to get worse. Can it be fixed or too expensive to justify?


Hi.

If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, Check if the drum has excessive play.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

To get a quote on repair call Maytag at the number listed on the owner manual, the machine may still be worth repairing.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Noisy during spin cycle


This may be due to a worn belt (squeeks when changing speed), Faulty dampers - (banging about), constant rattling (rear bearing), or a motor on it's last legs (replace motor).
Most faults can be fixed by replacing those listed.

Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWA seems to be rubbing


I suspect that you have a leveling bracket come loose. Many of the Maytag washers also use a large concrete block fastened underneath to help balance things. Look to see if yours is this type. If so then the steel rod holding thinge that holds it in place may have come loose...should be easy to put back correctly but will require some muscle. Most of the Sears Kenmore units have springs that can come loos from their connections and require re hooking but I do not think you have this type of unit for a Maytag. Hope this helped.

My indesit washer belt keeps falling off what shal i do?


AHi, firstly, is the machine very noisy when it spins? Does the inner drum feel loose ie. can you waggle it about? If the answer to these is yes, then the machine bearings will need replacing which could get expensive. If however, the drum sounds normal when it spins and it spins quite freely when you spin it by hand, then the belt just needs replacing. The newer machines use non adjustable stretch belts which are known to stretch over time and then start falling off.

Belt keeps coming off the pulley


I suggest you check your drum bearings, belt will only come off if misaligned.
