Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer

Knocking noise on spin cycle

I have a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Super Silent machine that makes a KNOCKING sound when it starts the Rinse spin.

On the final rinse spin, the knocking is still loud, but the whole machine vibrates a great deal.

I have checked that the machine is level, and also have taken he top lid off and have not found anything loose.

Any ideas please?

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

That's usually the sign of damaged shock absorbers or/and damaged bearing.

    It is easy to replace shock absorbers by yourself but replacing bearing takes much more work and sometimes special tools. First make sure what's causing the problem and than replace parts. If inner part of the machine (the drum or the basket) swings when moved by hand instead of stabilizing quickly than most definitely shock absorbers are dead.

To fix, hold the Start Button in until it completes the full cycle about 3 mins. It should say end or something similar then start as normal.

Hotpoint Ultima WMA61 loud knocking noise in spin cycle

Hello I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..

To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it..

If you need any further advice then dont hesistate to ask....

HOTPOINT ULTIMA SUPER SILENT ( WF 860 ) 1600 SPIN SPEED.

I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
