Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
Hi, yeah my bearings collapsed on this machine as well. Been sounding like a jet engine for a while now.
I snapped my one and only T40 can't work out if it's a left or right hand thread. Would appreciate it if anyone who manages to get the spider off the drum can tell me which thread it is. Going to try some heat next :)
Bolts holding spider to tub have loctite on them. only way i found to shift them is heat till they turn easy. i do refrigeration so have oxy/propane burner which makes it easy.
it is easy to damage tub when trying to lever spider out. i use three wood wedges and tap them in turn.
it is a pig of a job
threads are right hand

First of all, what kind of a loud is it making? Is it a loud squeak, clunk, bang, or jet engine sound?
If it is a loud jet engine sound, then your tumbler bearing is wearing out. You could try oiling it, but [probably you will have to replace it. It’s a big job and even if you do it yourself, the best and easiest way to do it is expensive.
I recommend first of all ordering a repair manual. Or at least see if the parts come with detailed instructions on how to take out the old bearing and install the new. You will probably have to replace the entire outer drum assembly. It's much more expensive in parts to do it that way than to just replace the bearings and seals, but much much easier and faster. Personally, I've replaced the entire drum assembly and also tried to replace just the bearings and seals. In the end I wasted the money on the bearings and seals and got an new assembly. I'd recommend just going for the new assembly and saving time.
