Re: Bad Drum bearing need part number
Im sorry, but the rear bearings (unless its changed just recently) is a non servicable part, you will have to replace the entire rear tub section. Also, most of the time, you end up having to change the inner tub as well, the shaft is usually wore out as well.

The loud banging noise in the spin part of the cycle is usually caused by bad drum bearings. The repair is carried replacing the bearing at the back of the drum. Such kind of replacement is carried disassembling most of the appliance to reach the back of the tub. If you have not done similar repairs before it may be better to call a technician ringing the Asko support number listed on the owners manual.
Hi, your probably right about the bearing its usually hard to tell untill they have compltely gone have you tried turning the drum by hand to see if it turns smoothly if it does then it could be the motor thats noisy both can be replaced but the drum bearing is a nighmare trust me you need pullers and its hard work. So try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel any roughness or catching this would tell you if the drum bearing has gone. Let me know the outcome ok
You did'nt discribe the noise, could be a few things based on noise. Thumping could be a bad drum support wheel, Squeeling could be Teflon bearing strips on lower lip of front drum end, or motor bearings, or tensioner pulley, or belt slipping cause by weak or broken tensioner spring, for starters. A good source for ALL appliance parts is WWW.PARTSCLINIC.COM must have model & serial number, located behind door upper left,or in back on a tag.
Hi Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually... Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning. Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested. Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution. Thanks for contacting fixya.com
Suspect a bad drum bearing or bent drum bearing shaft. When you rotate the drum, look for movement of the drum up or down while turning. If the drum moves suddenly, suspect the drum bearing. If it slowly moves up or down during turning, suspect a bent shaft on the drum. In either case, it is a major teardown to remove the drum from the outer drum case. If still under warranty, take advantage! Hope this helps!
you need to replace your drum bearings, you will need to pull the front off the dryer to get to them. They should only run you 6 to 10 each and you have 2 of them. If your handy you can do it on your own. Go to marcone.com with your dryers model # and you will see a diagram of the dryer and be able to order the parts. Good Luck, you can do it!
The squeaking is usually attributed to any (or all) of the following:
The drum support rollers
The rear drum seal
The front drum ring bearing
The front drum seal and bearing assembly
The Idler Pulley
Now before you throw yours hands in the air in a panic, these parts sound more technical than they are. All the bearings and seals for the drum are either felt or plastic, the drum rollers support the drum at the rear bulkhead, and the idler pulley is what the drive belt rides on. Searspartsdirect.com offers excellent illustrations to show you where these parts are located. Just type in your complete model number and there will be a part listing with part numbers on the next page. If the model number you posted this under is correct the parts can be found under the following headings:
Drum Support Rollers (item 44) Part #349241T (pkg. of two)
Rear Drum Seal (item 66) Part #279857
Front Drum Ring Bearing (item 62) Part #279441
Drum Seal and Bearing Assy. (item 38) Part #3406129
Idler Pulley (item 53) Part #691366
I list all these parts as a convenience in case you need to order any of them, and to help illustrate where these parts are located. You may not need ANY of them.
The drum support rollers require lubrication at the point where the roller meets the shaft with a light turbine oil. This should be done periodically to keep them rolling smooth. DO NOT get any oil on the rubber rollers or it may cause the drum to slip. You should also remove any build of lint before lubricating.
The drum seals can become brittle with age and start making noise as the drum rotates. This is particularly true with the rear drum seal. It will become discolored with age and turn brown in many cases. Inspect the front and rear seals of the drum for excessive wear. If parts of the seal begin to protrude into the interior part of the drum, this is a good sign that the seal is bad. The seals cannot be lubricated and will require replacement.
The idler pulley is a small plastic wheel on a shaft that the drive belt rides on. Lubricating the idler pulley wheel in the same manner as the drum roller supports is also required from time to time. DO NOT get any oil on the drive belt.
I know this seems like a lot, but a simple matter of cleaning and lubricating may be all that you need. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
