I have bought a aquarius wf220 second hand, it washes then wont spin and the top light flashes

You cannot get a drum bearing kit for the WMF740 as they're welded into the drum outer. You have to buy a whole new drum outer etc at £140 or so instead of £25 for a typical bearing kit. Rip off!!! Built in obsolescence by Hotpoint - now common on 'modern' machines.

Hi mine is the same, call hotpoint and you need the drum bearing replaced, you,ll need the complete drum assembly

check the drum bearings for play (wear) by pushing the inner drum upwards with hand at the 12 o clock position any wobble points to bearing failure if OK next open the machine check the concrete counter weights are still tight usually 1 top and 1 bottom and that no springs are off/snapped
