SOURCE: Drum Bearing Replacement

With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)

Bummers. Sounds like the clutch is out. (If you can hear the motor spinning but not the drum, I'd say that's it. Especially if the machine has a number of years on it.)

I once looked into having a service man come fix a clutch. He said it would be cheaper to buy and new washing machine and have the old one hauled away.

Good luck.

yes you can do it yourself no special tools are need just a couple good flathead screwdrivers and a lot of patiance be sure to put all the new washers and bearing back on in the same order the old ones came off putting the C clip on can be a little tricky but take you time and it can be done you may hvw to use the flat head to pry on the trans. shaft to get the clip in the groove then use a pair of chanell locks or pliers to snap it on if you get a new style bearing it may not look like the one you take off and not have all he washers just snap the small plastic pice onto the bearing put it on the the pulley the most of the time just the thin washe then the C clip the dust cover put belt back on the test machine

SOURCE: bosch exxcel 1400s express is the drum stainless

It is simple to tell what the drum is made of: if it is silvery metal-like finish, then it is stainless steel. It cannot be aluminum because the aluminum would not withstand the abrasive and detergent chemical action . It would also not be chrome or chrome finish.
If it is normal steel, it must be porcelain coated since porcelain can take the abuse necessary and also protect the steel from eroding. Porcelain will (of course) be white or grey paint-like finish. It could be a poly/pvc/plastic drum but this hopefully would be obvious and of course would also be white.
Many model come as an option of porcelain steel or stainless steel and the model number is the same except for one digit. I will assume your 's' digit stands for stainless, in either case, the silver metallic finish is the determining clue. Macgivor

SOURCE: bosch exxcel 1200 express spinning slowly

I would suggest that you remove the motor, and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

Noisy faulty bearings, is this a realistic or expensive repair or a new machine?


Bearings can be changed but can be awkward to do. Expect about 2 hours labour and a bearing kit which costs about 35-40 pounds. Would advise getting a professional to do this

Awful bearing noise on spin.


Remove drum belt and spin drum by hand, if it is noisy or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed, which is a major repair.
