  1. Hello, My washing machine makes a thudding noise when it's finished spinning. Please see attached video. This has happened twice, that I know of. The cycle appeared to have finished, the display says 'END'. The machine made this sound at irregular intervals of a few seconds. The drum does not move during the thudding. Looking at the light indicators, it does seem that the programme is complete by the time this noise starts. The washing appears to be washed, rinsed and spun dry. When I turn the machine off, on the programme dial, the noise stops and the door click releases. What's happening? Gr
  2. Hi! we have a maytag bravo washer that doesn't work. It will sense and spin. But when it gets to agitate and rinse the timer will skip from 32 mins to 4 mins. And will start to drain.The clothes will come out dripping wet. Thanks in advance!
  3. I have a Miele W3985 and I'm puzzled by the spin settings. On the "separate rinse" programme, the spin is limited to 1200, although on a regular wash it can be put up to 1800. If i run this I usually then have to run a separate "drain+spin" programme manually to get the faster spin. Why this restriction? Is there any way to change the config to remove the restriction? Many thanks.
  4. Hi, I Have an Indesit IWME 126 Machine that has decided to stop working. It appears to have 'frozen' in that the green light at 4H is lit up and the door lock lit up but doesnt do anything. If left for several hours I have came back and seen the door lock light flashing but nothing else. I checked the filter and appears clean enough. The other unusual thing is that when I switch off at the wall to release the door lock - I switched it back on and when i closed the door it spins very quickly for a couple seconds and then return to the frozen state. Is this an issue with the
  5. Hi, my washing machine is not triggering the spin cycle automatically. When I use Normal or Perm Press to start the machine... the timer moves as normal but when it reaches the spin cycle, it just keeps on agitating until the timer reaches off and stops. When I go back to the machine, the clothes are just sitting in dirty water. At this point, the only way to start the spin/drain cycle is by manually rotating the switch to that position and starting the machine. It then spins/drains like normal. So basically... the spin cycle won't trigger automatically but can be manually trigg
  6. Washing machine has started to make rattling noise on free spin. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be? How much a repair would cost?
  7. had a lot of Hotpoint's over the years and they have normally shared the same feature that if when it comes to Spin cycle if the clothes are not distributed the machine will not spin the clothes - the drum will deliberate , slow tumbling back and forth until it balances, (or attempts to balance) the load .. if it cant , then thats it with a Hotpoint its a no go, it wont go into a spin .. the cycle just ends and your clothes come out nearly sopping wet - it must be a nightmare for engineers or hotpoint who phone up hotpoint complaining their machines are 'faulty' and not spinning (even if they
  8. AEG Lavatmat 52810 Machine works fine on the slow wash cycle and normal rinse and spin cycles. Problem occurs about 1/2 way during the wash cycle, when the drum turns quite fast. At this point the machine sort of has a 'heart attack'. It jolts a bit and makes a loud squeeking noise - sort of like the squeals of brakes in a car when suddenly push foot hard down on the brakes when driving fast (If this makes sense). Then stops that spin. If left alone, it continues with the cycle. Until the next fast spin during the wash cycle. All other cycles work normally. No noise from th
  9. Hi there, After any help we can get really - we have an EU Zanussi F1232 washing machine, the problem is that the spin stops after a few seconds, it tries a few times and then then completely aborts the cycle. Here is a video of the attempted spin in action: https://vimeo.com/190366341 Can anybody diagnose the fault from the video? Many thanks in advance. Alexi
  10. Afternoon, Our Hotpoint WML730 Aquarius washing machine started making a noise during the spin cycle yesterday, this coincides with 'grit' appearing in our water, whether it's related or not I don't know. When I got home from work the water was clear but small speckles of grit were found in the detergent tray, we cleaned this out as well as the filter, where I found 55p I started a quick wash and the washer filled up and the drum turned for a while, as soon as it got to the spin cycle it stopped. I powered the machine off a few times and tried various programmes but nothing appears
  11. Hi there! I have a hotpoint Aquarius wdl540 (wash/dry), and this has not been happening in every wash, but happened enough times to get me worried. Does anyone know the reason why the cycle sometimes starts normally but keeps going forever and won't switch to spin automatically? I noticed this few times and the only thing to do was to pause it and manually change it to spin. Spin works fine, it's that automatic finish to the wash and move onto spinning.. Than you for any help and guidance you can give me!!! Jools
  12. Hi there, I think that the settings are out of sync, as when i go to select spin, it fills rinses but doesn't spin it also takes about an hour to run through and i cant cancel. The spin seems to work on my normal washing setting. Is there anything i can do to fix this? I cant really afford to have an engineer to come out. Thank you Gemma
  13. Our Hoover washer-dryer model 856DG-80 has a serious fault. It has been making a lot of noise, jumping across the room recently. I also noticed that the drum bangs when moved, and I could here some jangling sounds. So, I had a look underneath the machine, and found that the large concrete block has broken in two, plus the attachment to the drum has broken. The photo shows the concrete block, plus all the fixings which were rattling about in the machine (bolts, washers and some plastic). My question is this: is it a write-off, or is this worth paying the £116 to Hoover to come out and fix (an
  14. HI, Have a Hotpoint WMF740, machine washes fine but when it gets to the spin cycle the machine seems to struggle getting it into spin mode, it tries several times then gives up and gives error code F-02. This only happens intermittently. When you switch the machine off and do the manual spin cycle it works (sometimes). I have had the machine open and checked whether anything is caught in the drum but it rotates ok. I have also removed the belt from the motor and the motor spins freely. I rang hotpoint who said it could only be fixed by a hotpoint engineer. The said it is something to d
  15. Hoover Vision HD - VHD 9143 ZD Washing Machine What Happened I put in a big heavy carpet rug that probably shouldnt have gone in, but it fit in so I did. After pulling it out, it was a complete mess and I binned it. I also noticed that it was covered in a lacquer kind of gluey substance that was also present on the inside of the main glass door. I did 2-3 empty full temperature washes hoping it would pass, in the end I scrubbed it off with a sponge because it stayed. Then on the next wash of normal cloths, it seemed fine, but the cloths were covered in this lacquer type gluey stuff.
  16. I have an old Hotpoint WM52 which has given up doing the final fast spin on any programme. The motor works and drives the drum normally during the wash cycle, but won't go up to fast speed for the spin dry. This started as an intermittent fault but has now become permanent. The machine drains perfectly well - to be sure I cleaned out the drain filter and found only one small 5p coin in it (was hoping for a larger haul), removal of which has not changed anything. I have changed the brushes on the motor - even though they were only changed a year or so ago and I don't use the machine heavily
  17. Hi there I just got a brand new Beko WMB81241LW Washing machine from Currys, a pretty good washing machine for the price seems well made (except for the soap drawer feels a little cheap and nasty when pulling out) and has lots of features. The only gripe I have noticed so far is that an awful lot of water seems to collect at the bottom of the grey door rubber gasket after every wash and the instructions tell you to wipe the door gasket after every wash. However in spinning I think i see that the water splashes up from the bootom of the door gasket and all around the door when spinning and doe
  18. Hello, Nice Forum, btw. I have read your advice for machines that wont spin but, alas, mine still wont Spin I have a 18 month old Candy GOFS262/1-80 and as the topic says, it wont spin at all. The machine washes fine, but when it is meant to spin it empties the water ok, does half a dozen slow turns, stops, does the same again and then the finish lights come on and 2 mins later the door light goes off and it opens fine. If I put the machine on just to spin, it does the same as above. I've checked the filter and all the obvious stuff but no joy. Candy want £120 to repair, flat charge, but a
