Inside drum of front loader loose bearing in back is ok but drum must have bushing gone how can i change this bushing the drum looks like its sealed


If the inner drum moves or is loose the the inner drum needs to be replaced .At the same time you should replace the rear of the outer drum as this contains the seal and bearings.

Drum bearing has gone on an AEG 72640 washing machine - is it a drum out repair or can it be done with drum in situ ? I can see that the bearings are available no problem. Would any other seals be needed...


These machines are not a quick one to repair, they have 2 bearings (inner and outer) plus a lip seal. you have to completely dismantle the machine to replace the bearings.

WHEN SPINING MAKING A LOAD NOISE


your drum bearings have gotten water in them from the lip-seal on the drum drive shaft,you need to remove the rear access panel,remove the belt remove the pulley,then remove inner tub and remove the spider that holds the inner drum on,then remove old seal and replace the inner and outer bearings,dont do just the inner bearing as the outer one isn't that expensive and may go out later,and its very labor intensive,anywhere from 2 to 7 hours depending on how stuck the old bearings are in the machine

My machine bangs on a full spin.is it the drum bearing?its a hotpointwf340g.how do you replace bearing or fix this problem.


If it bangs it doesn't necessarily mean it is the bearing that is gone. It could just be a imbalance on the load inside. To check if bearings are gone open the door and at the rear of the door seal nearest the inner drum use your fingers to hold down the outer drum, will be at rear edge of seal, now use your other hand at the top pressing the inner drum edge and now press down on outer drum and up on inner drum. If bearings are gone her will be a lot of movement between the two. If no real evident movement then you can feel pretty sure it's not the bearings. Check suspension for signs of wear and check for loose weight block, also check for loose components inside the shell that may be hitting the outer drum. Could also be that the machine is unbalanced if the feet adjusters are not properly adjusted to level the machine correctly.

I need to replace the bearings on lg wm2277


The metal covering piece is probably the outer seal for the front bearing--you remove both by driving the bearing out with a long metal rod (or a long punch) that reaches all the way through from the back (you have removed the inner drum and end shaft first). Tap fairly gently on the rod with a hammer and move the bearing end to another location after a few taps. The seal should pop out first, with the bearing next. Once out, look for a number on the bearing edge--it should match the replacement. Inspect the surface where the seal mates with the shaft--it should be pit and wear free. If it is not, a local machine shop should be able to repair that surface (and cheaper than a new inner drum assembly). It is essential that this surface be perfect as it keeps water out of the bearing behind it. The seal can be reused if it still fits fairly tightly on the shaft and that it was not damaged during the removal process. Check with a local bearing supply house to get a replacement bearing. The new bearing will have been greased at the factory, but you need to grease the shaft and inner seal lip with waterproof grease before installing the seal. Don't strike the inner part of the new bearing, only along the outer edge when tapping it back into the housing. Same with the seal. The far end bearing will likely be good and not need to be replaced--slowly turn the inside part and feel for any roughness which would indicate the need for replacement. If so, it gets tapped out from the front side in a similar manner as the front removal. Good luck!!

"whirlpool duet makes big noise on hi spin cycle and sandy grey staf is coming out from drain hose"


You have a big problem here. It sounds like the bearings on the drum shaft are going. this is over $400 for the back half of the outer drum and you have to be a very good mechanic to get it all apart. I currently have mine apart for the same problem which I verified by opening the door of the washer and lifting the inner stainless steel drum up and down with the machine off, of course. The tub is supported by two large ball bearings on the shaft that is supporting the stainless steel drum, and they don't sell just the bearings and seal, only the back half of the drum. If it has gotten bad enough to rub against the front half of the outer tub, it will probably have to be replaced also, about $120. This was probably caused by overloading the washer or washing something that was unbalanced and heavy; this destroys the seal between the inner drum and the heavy bearings, also not available separately, and lets water into the bearings in the aft outer tub which support the inner tub shaft. If you want to try to take this apart to verify, try looking at Whirlpool consumer services technical education group presents #L-68, Job Aid Part No. 8178076. I found it online. It has detailed instructions how to take this machine apart if you are a technician or a talented amateur, as I am. Good luck.

Replace drum bearing


To complete this repair correctly and to prevent problem re occuring within months you must change the inner drum spider at the same time as the bearing kit, otherwise you are wasting your time, to complete the repair if you have not done one before will take you aprox 1 to 3 hours depending on space available and practicle ability, here goes, remove lid and outer case from machine to do this remove bolts on lower back and two side bolts (under small white covers) remove bolts along top edges both sides on top of macnine, remove cabinet, remove motor, remove hoses, remove heater and thermostat wires, noting location for refitting, remove suspension leg pins and lift outer drum assembly complete fron lower frame, split two halves of outer drum by removing bolts around centre seem, split drum in two, remove drum pully, refit pully bolt and drift inner drum out having put nut back on drum spider thread to avoid flaring shaft, using hammer knock shaft through bearings, then using a chisel or similer object knock out bearings and seal, reverse process refitting new bearins and spider, make sure to replace centre outer drum seal, as these are prone tro leaking I suggest you also seal with a layer of clear silicon, and problems contact me again, not really a job for a novice. Good Luck you will need it. Regards Advisor

Suspect drum bearings


most lg front loaders have the plastic outer drums which have about 16 h/duty screws holding the two halves together. extreemly tricky to strip to gain access to inner bearing and seal. Th/stat, motor, piping and other items have to be removed and dissassembled to enable drum to be removed. that repair i suggest for a service repair.
