SOURCE: Bearing noise on Indesit WDG1295

you will have to open the machine lid to see if its a plastic drum or metal.
the metal drum is easier as it has a 'spider asssembly'. remove this after taking off the pulley by taking out the bolts that hold it and bang it off being carefull of the heater element. remove the bearings and seal and refit in reverse order you took it off.
i would not advise replacing plastic drum bearings as they are a pain, removal of the rear of a plastic drum easy but not putting it back !

SOURCE: indesit wash machine drum bearing

Some models like the WE12 have sealed drums where the bearings can't be changed. You have to buy a complete unit for about £120.

SOURCE: hotpoint motor problem after renewing drum bearings!

Hi dave, Its nothing you have done! It will need the carbon brushes changed in the motor as they have got low. The arcing is caused by the brushes not touching the com properly. Just change them and it will be all good.....

SOURCE: does the drum have to be removed to replace both

No, remove the drive belt pulley and remove the 8 bolts holding the x shaped cast iron frame with the bearings in, lay the washer face down (ensuring adequate protection to the door and controls) whilst pulling the x shaped frame away from the drum tap the threaded shaft lightly with a rubber faced mallet and the frame will come away complete with bearings and seal. To replace the frame (with new bearings and seal installed) I used a large socket and long bolt to draw the shaft through the new bearings.

How do I program the module in an Indesit IWDC6125


indesit washing machines are only made to last just outside the guarentee period these days as the drums are sealed to stop you replacing the drum bearings. much better to buy a reconditioned Hotpoint wm62 they also wash much quicker than any new machine

Make a lot of nosie


Hi mervyn2011
Sounds like you have a bearing problem or drum roller/slide problems.
You will need to take the dryer apart to determine which problem it is.
For an owners manual go to the following webpage

Remove bearing from indesit drum how to split drum


all of the newer indesit washing machines have whats called a welded drum meaning they cannot be split open.the thing about this is to change the bearings you have to buy a full drum. best option is to go through the indesit company themselves. aprox cost £100 if under 5 years and £140 if over 5years. hope this helps

Bearings gone


All Indesit washing machines are aimed at the budget end of the market; as such the outer drum assembly is polypropylene instead of steel. This type of construction is common to almost all cheaper brands which are really designed to simply be thrown away when major parts fail.

Bearing replacement is often impossible as the outer drum inevitably cracks when the old bearing is driven out or when the new one is installed. Indesit do not normally even offer the bearing as a spare part, but if you do get the old one out a replacement can usually be supplied by a bearing shop if you take the old one along for comparison. If you then buy a new bearing and then crack the outer drum whilst trying to install it you won't be able to get a refund.

Your only realistic options are as follows:-

1. replace the entire drum assembly;
2. replace the outer drum complete with the bearing;
3. replace the entire machine.

The first option is not usually cost effective, the second option isn't always possible as it's not always available as a spare part (you didn't state which exact model you have).

The third option may be your only practical solution if you cannot put up with the noise or if the faulty bearing is causing other issues. You also need to consider that if your Indesit is used every day, then it will typically last only around three years from new before major parts start to wear out, so you might repair your machine only to find that it soon needs a new pump or has a sensor, switch or circuit board failure. Better quality (but more expensive) brands will typically last in excess of six years.

Avoid any used washing machines unless you get them for free and they just need a cheap fix like a new pump (or even better when they just need that errant sock pulled out of the tube leading to the pump: many perfectly good machines are thrown away with simple fixes like those). A bargain used machine is only a bargain if it lasts at least a year or two, and professionally "refurbished" machines normally only come with a less than reassuring ninety day warranty.

How do i change the bearings on my indesit we12s macine


Sorry but you can't.

Your model has a polypropylene outer drum and the bearings cannot be removed without breaking it. The only fix is to either replace the entire drum assembly or just the outer drum which is supplied with bearings ready-fitted. If you do go ahead with the repair it's a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time unless it's absolutely perfect.

As Indesits are super-low priced machines to start with the repair is rarely economically worthwhile as a machine with worn bearings will usually have many other worn parts as well just waiting to fail. Noisy bearings make a horrible noise but usually continue working for quite a while, so it may be better to grit your teeth and put the likely repair costs into the savings towards a new machine.

Indesit widl 126-problem with the drum,moving back and forth to much and noisy.


It would seem that the bearings go on this model, which causes the inner drum to knock and bang against the outer during spin. If you continue to use the machine without replacing both sets of bearings, it will cause irreparable damage and the machine will need to be replaced.
