Top Loader Washer VERY Load during Spin

I have a 5 year old Hotpoint top-load washing machine.

During the SPIN cycle, the machine sounds incredibly loud now and it's like a higher pitched whirling sound (like a helicoptor). Almost seems like the drum spins incredibly fast now compared to before.

Any suggestions? Could it be a belt problem or something else? I'm not a repair expert as far as washers go....



Thanky ou.

Hi,

Sounds like a spin bearing or a brake problem, which can be costly to repair.

Does it still spin and wash ok other than that?
