Hotpoint WML730 Tapping noise

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a Hotpoint WML730 Aquarius washing machine that has recently started making an intermittent tapping sound.  It only seems to do it at the start of the spin cycle.  I have read the article on washing machine noises but still can't get the the source of the noise. 

It appears to be coming from the left hand side of the machine.  I've attached a video which shows the issue.

Any advice would be gratefully received

 

Thanks

Can you reproduce the tapping sound with the machine unplugged and by moving and shaking the cabinet and outer drum about? It sounds like metal tapping n metal which could come form the chassis or feet of the cabinet or from movement of the drum.

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I can reproduce it to a lesser degree when I move the drum back and forward, although it only happens some of the time.  The feet all seem solid and the machine is sitting level.  It was recently moved out of the room for decorating and then put back again and the sound has started since then.

 

When moving the drum the sound seems like it's coming from around about the top left hand spring but as far as I can see it isn't tapping against anything.

 

Thanks

 

Fraser

Noises like that are often caused by something metal being moved up and down repeatedly and tapping on something else when the drum is moving. It’s a case of unplugging it and moving and shaking and bouncing everything around to see what it is.
