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 !

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.....

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.
