First of all obtain a new bearing spider INDESIT Part No C00074648. Remove the top lid (two screws at rear then slide lid backwards), remove rear panel (six screws).Lay the machine on its front ,remove the belt and motor (four bolts).Remove the pulley centre bolt (Torx 40- this bolt will be very tight) and ease the pulley off, remove the 8 Torx 40 bolts from the tub/spider (these will also be very tight) then ease off the spider from the drum shaft and tub. (this also could be very tight depending how badley worn the bearings are). Refitting is the reverse of these directions.

    Or try this

    To change it you have to remove the drum
    pulley, unscrew the clamp band holding the drum backplate, remove the
    backplate + inner drum, drift the drum spindle out of the bearing
    housing to remove the inner drum, unbolt old housing and bolt in new
    one.

    There is also a gasket for the bearing housing flange but this is
    easy enough to make from a cereal packet. When refitting the inner drum
    + backplate you will find it easier if the machine is lying on its
    front. I always put silicone sealer round the rubber seal of the
    backplate as they are prone to leaking once disturbed.

    I diod not find exact schematics for this model, I believe that this is a front load model.

    On an Indesit front load you need to access the belt assembling and release the belt, then you take the drum pulley off.Then take the bearing out, if it does not come try using a rubber mallet to knock the drum shaft out. Be careful not to damage other parts using the hammer, that is a risk.

    All repairs must be done by a qualified repairman.

    Here is a general diagram for Indesit FL: Front Load

How to fit bearing


Change of bearing is a little advance project and over whelming for beginners.
Most bearing comes with instruction how to install bearings and some you could find instructions on line .
Most likely you need to use special tools or bearing installation tools .
Most likely you could buy them from appliance parts stores or auto parts and major tool stores or online tool stores stores and as you should know there are many different size and shape of bearing tools.
You have to be sure what kind bearing tools exactly you need

How difficult is it to change drum bearing on my indesit wg1130tg washing matchine


Personally, my view is that this is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.


To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are) will be about £20 ($30) or so. But it's a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a quite a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.


I'm not saying that you couldn't do it if you had the will and the practical temprement, but I would certainly approach the idea of starting the job with a degree of scepticism.

My partner's Hotpoint WT960 makes very loud grinding sound when spinning. I suspect the drum bearings are gazacked. Do I need to change the drum support and bearings & seal or just the bearings? Is it...


Hi Joe.
A lot depends on construction of drum.
Remove the top cover and look at the plastic outer container, if it is a one piece consonstruction, then unfortunately you cannot fit new bearings, as it it comes supplied as a complete unit.
However, if you can see the 2 drum halves held together with screws, then you can fit new bearings.
You will not know if the spider or drum shaft needs to be replaced until the it is stipped down, a fifty- fifty chance
It is an involved repair as it entails removing the whole container from the cabinet, and do not fit any other bearings than the genuine ones.
It comes as a bearing and seal kit from Hotpoint.

Good luck

Makes a load banging noise when spinning at high speed


what is the model number? The spider sits onto the drum inside the tub, then the shaft comes through the bearings then the wheel fits onto that. Some machines you can change the spider, others are fixed so the drum has to be changed. Let me know model number and i can find out if bearings are available for you.But to replace them is a big job. I finished 1 this morning.

Is there a reason for the bearings in a front loading machine to keep needing to be replaced


It could be that the new bearings are being fitted onto a worn drum shaft, this would soon cause the bearings to fail again.
If it has not been replaced, then it should be done so.

Problem with a indest wil143s


it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

I have a hotpoint first edition 800 wm 51 can you tell me is it east to change the bearing in the drum


It is a fairly straight forward repair to do, if you know what you are doing.
The bearing comes as a bearing kit, consisting of 2 bearings and a shaft seal, yuo will also need a new container front seal, and depending on how badly the bearings are worn, you may need to fit a new drum shaft as well.
Again depending on how badly the bearings are worn, they can cause wear in the bearing housing, this being the case, then you would have to fit a new outer tub.assy complete,
This then puts it beyond economical repair.
Obviously , you will not know what is req'd until it is stripped down.
Plz rate my comments towards providing a solution to your problem.
Thankyou.

Bearings on a indest wie 167 washing machine


You can download a user manual for your m/c, but not a repair manual, Go to>
www.indesit .co.uk
Follow the links. To remove the spider, remove the rear panel, remove drum belt, undo drum pulley, you may have to heat the screw holding the pulley,undo all screws that you can see holding the spider to drum rear.
Withdraw spider, you may have to use some force to pull it off.
Fit new bearings or spider, and reassemble..
