Eco bubble washing machine making a whining noise

First Poster

I have a 9kg WW90J5456 Eco bubble washing machine and lately it makes a strange whining sound when on cotton program, it is not overloaded and it is not vibrating... it just sounds like the motor is struggling 


Can anyone hep with this please

Hi @Huggy509.


Are you still having this issue with your washing machine?

Yes on and off

@Huggy509: Does this issue only occur on the Cotton Cycle or have you noticed it during other cycles? Have you noticed any error codes on the display when you experience the noise?

So far only on cotton program 

could be any load, even just 2 towels

not every cycle 

machine is level and not vibrating 

just this whining sound when in rinse/spin cycle 

drum can bectirnijg fast or slow... nkt sire but may be worse when turning slow
