Hotpoint WMA48P bearing replacement


REMOVE THE POWER PLUG FROM THE SOCKET
this is a messy job, you will need to remove the lid remove the front of the machine 2 -3 screws behind the clip on pannel front bottom I cant rember if the front hangs on two lugs one either side or if there are acouple of screws behind the faceplate, you will need to disconnect the door safty switch (make note of the wire positions), remove the wire band that clamps the door seal to the outer drum, now you should be able to see the drum and the drum outer casing, you will neeed to remove the access panel from the rear of the machine and if the belt has not already come off remove it , you notice a large nut holding the flywheel on inspect closely as there may be some securing tags (large washer with folded edges stopping the nut from comming undone ) remove nut , you will now need to remove the drum from the front of the machine using a peice of wood place on shaft and strike it with a heavy hammer or a mallet do not worry about damaging the shaft as you will need to replace this as well as the bearings as when bearings fail it is normaly to do with water getting to the bearing and corroding them (rust) untill they give up this normally damages the shaft, once the shaft is removed if you look through to shaft hole you will see the outer casing of the beaings thease need to be removed normally by tapping out (not always easy)there are two one at fromt one at back the back one is removed from inside the drum front removed from rear of machine , once this is all clear you are ready to the reverse putting it all together, the bearing kit should contain all you need to replace the bearings including the spider ( the three legged fitting that connects to the drum and has the shaft on it) when replacing the bearings make sure that where the old bearings come out of is nice and clean (fine sanpaper to remove small high spots) i use vaselene to aid bearing seating , using a rubber mallet genlely tap the edge of the bearing into place (never hit the center of the bearing as you could damage the seal and or the bearing) when the bearings are in smear some grease onto the shaft and rfit, a bearing kit trade is about 20 uk pounds

If there is water leaking then you need to repalce both bearings and the seal that sits around the drum shaft and protects the bearing. Check the brass collar on the drum support thats sits in the bearing is not worn or grooved.If it is the shaft and/or the drum need replacing too

Change Bearings for HotPoint WMA62N


Hi, I also have the bearing problem on a hotpoint wma and have just stated the repair job. I have found the following on different forums, so maybe it might help others. You do need to remove the drum and there are two different sizes of bearings 30mm and 35mm. To find the size you need you have to get to the bearings and measure them.
/////////////////
. Ok,Hotpoint wma series drum bearing failure.Firstly very common problem since i work on these things every day-i think there is a design fault-nothing new in this trade!What follows is

the sequence of problems in changing the drum bearings:If the machine has been thrashed into oblivion just changing the oilseal/bearings will have you back to square one within a

couple of months since you would`ve damaged the drum shaft as the bigger bearing of the 2 goes into shapnell mode!So you`d best change the drum shaft(in the trade known as the

spider) however this thing is aluminium usually held onto the the drum via torx headed screws either in steel or soft Al2 also-forget it as your not going to get these out unless your mega

lucky,what we do at work is to replace the whole tank/drum/bearing assembly which comes with a new element and belt ie the whole tank unit,the trade price of this part is less than

£100.00-you can draw your own conclusions as to the retail price as you wish.If you haven`t thrashed the machine you can get away with replacing just the bearings or easier still the rear

half of the tank(trade price 30.00+vat) in which the bearings are already fitted via the factory and reuse the existing spider/drum shaft so long as it isn`t damaged by disintergrated bearing

shapnell.I hope this clears up this problem for you.Please note that this machine`s filter which is at the rear doubles up as the air trap-the oval section 8" long semi transpatent plastic tube

thing-the part that allows the water to compress the air so turning off the level of fill at the right level via the round swt behind the soap dispenser-called the pressure swt-if the filter gets

bunged up the machine o/fills and either overfills or overfills and floods or tries to spin with aload of water still inside the drum or perhaps no spin at all.Hope this helps someone.

/////////////////////////////////////////////




The drum comes out through the front on this one. Take off kick plate and remove screws holding front panel to frame. Take out soap drawer & remove screws behind it. Take off band

holding door seal & peel seal back. Remove 2 screws holding door lock &push lock through. Pull control panel forward at left side & slide to right to remove being careful with board &
wiring. Remove screws holding top end of front then lift slightly &remove front. Remove back panel & take wiring off heating element & pump. Disconnect the pump hose at the drum end,

disconnect the hose from the soap dispenser, note that wiring is fastened to the drum at several points and will need to be disconnected. Remove panel from behind control board then

carefully move everything away from the front of the machine, the drum can now be lifted clear.

Forgot to mention unplugging motor but common sense will prevail.

How easy is it to change the drum bearings on my indesit wil163s?


you will need to remove the pulley first, the screw in the middle will need a knock to release the loctite.
you will then need to remove the spider assembly, that's the metal cross the bearings are sitting in. there are bolts set around the drum. spray the bearings shaft with oil to help removal, and you may need to hammer the spider as you remove it to loosen it. be careful of the heater.
then knock the bearings and seal out and do the reverse proceedure to put back together.

Removing/replacing main drum bearing on a zanussi WDT1085


Yes you do need to remove the drum, it entails stripping the washer down, and it is normal practice to replace the complete drum half with the bearings pre-fitted..
It is not a job to undertake, unless you feel competent to do do it, as it entails al ot of work and time..
Good luck if you decide to proceed.
Plz rate my suggestions.
.Thanks.

Candy drum bearing replacement


Hello
This is fairly straightforward but little hard work to remove and fix. If you have Candy Washing machine such as model CE430 which is fully automatic electro-mechanical with AC motor , the replacement will be as follows that I have done successfully

1. Remove the belt and motor, then remove the hex nut on then drum pulley. But pulley may not come out. It is suggested to remove the hex nut whiled drum on the frame because it is easy to remove while it is on the frame.
2. Take the complete drum assembly out of the washing machine frame.
3. Leave the drum assy on a bench with pulley side upward, use puncher to tap onto the center of the drum spindle, make sure that you will not damage the screw threads on the spindle. the spindle should go down the pulley should pop up.
4. Then keep punching until drum spindle and the “Y” arm assemble comes out.
5. Now you will have the pulley and drum and Y spindle removed. the 2 bearings and water seal still in the drum casing.
6. Use rust cleaner chemical or spray to dissolve the rust off. Then use either bearing puller or use iron puncher to tap on the bearing gently but hard , may use 1kg hammer and take each bearing out. The inner bearing will come out with the water seal.
7. How to get the spare parts; these parts are very common in this geographical region ( Asia). You can buy generic parts. Get the mechanical specifications on the bearing to buy the bearing. The water seal which is generally referred as oil seal, look for specifications such as specs will have inner & outer diameter and the height ( width) ie 22 mm, 40mm and 10mm for water seal of the Candy CE430. Make sure you have the exact shape of the water seal as the original one.
8. Install back the new parts: you need to smoothen the spindle and clean the area as well. to have less friction , smoothen the spindle surface using sand-paper, it will be easy to press the bearing and the spindles.
9. 1st you install the bearings. You need to add thick lubricant in between the inner bearing and inside of the water seal. Then insert the water seal as well.
10. The drum spindle can be inserted to the bearing, you cannot use iron hammer because it will dent the drum, you need to push and may use wooden plank warp with thick cloth like towel to batter on to the center of the drum gently, if the spindle is smoothen properly it should go in with out a hassle. Make sure that drum rotates freely, then pulley can be installed.
11. The drum bearing replacement is completed
12. Re-install the other parts back.

Drum Bearings replacement


This is Mogsey above, I have now renewed the bearings in my Zanussi Jetsystem 1600, Model FJD1666W. Had a man in to help. It really is a two man job and I put my back doing this with him. The bearings were much larger than previously encountered. Very! basically you have get out the residue water, release the door seal and (pipe attached) spit the m/c casing, unclip all hoses attached to drum, unclip all drum wiring ,remove belt (note position) remove motor &, lay to one side, withdraw nylon pins from shock absorbers, Look for and remove the little earthing cable set just inside the pulley rim. Carefully release drum/case supporting springs (mark positions top and bottom) and, drop drum/case onto some blocks and lift/pull/take out (really needs two people) (minding other modules). Split drum/case ring of bolts, remove front half (careful here not to damage the heater). take half containing drum outside, lay drum face down and use a drift to hit the socket headed screw securing pulley hard to shake up the taper. Remove this screw (needs good quality allen key) and use wedges to the force off the drum drive pulley. Support drum casing on blocks or put drum on its side, support the drum if on its side and use a heavy drift and hammer to knock through the drum spindle. Careful now to avoid grating hands on the sharp drum holes. With drum now removed place the casing drive end up (ensuring protuding heater is clear of the ground!) put a large bolt (head down) inside the first bearing and rest it on the edge of the inner bearing. Carefully working round the inner bearing edge use a hammer and the bolt head as a drift to knock out the inner (the larger of the two bearings and inturn the drum seal) (note seal postion). Turn over the casing and knock out the outer bearing from inside the drum casing. Clean all and check condition of spider/spindle & renew if damaged. Fit the new outer bearing then the new inner followed by the seal. Dig out the old and renew the (green) O ring seal between the drum casing halves. Replace all, but give a quick test run before replacing casing to ensure belt is positioned correctly. The job would have cost £115 which I think is well worth paying someone to do.
