Replacement of drum bearing - AEG Lavamat W 1030

I treid to loosen the Allen key nut at the back of the drum but it is stuck. Must one turn it clockwise or anti-clockwise to loosen it?

It that the way toreplace the bearing or must one remove the whole drum?

Please provide me with the whole procedure to remove the old bearing and seal and to replace is?

If there are any specific hinds, please provide it as well.

Do I need special tools to do the job? Would I be able to do it myself?

Kind regards
Pieter Wagener

Loose drum on lavamat

I'm sorry to say, this means that the main bearings on the drum have failed. This is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machins 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 its 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 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.

Drum is making some really nasty banging then screaching sounds when entering high spin - any ideas??

sounds like main drum bearings not common but if the bearings are worn you get the banging noise and as it slackens the drive belt you get screeching noise as the belt slips.

I need to replace the bearing in an AEG Lavamat 1450. I've taken the back off the machine, but there isn't a traditional "spider", just a round wheel type thing attached with an Allen bolt. Can I have some...

Hi there.....unless your exerienced in this advise you to seek expert help...the drive wheel securing bolt is of the torx type and requires a secial torx key to remove will find that the outter drum has a series of torx headed screws around it which have to be removed and then the drum split...only after this has been completed and the inner drum removed will you have access to.the bearings.......

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.

Random red stains appearing on clothes. Aeg Lavamat 50430

possible you have some red clothing in the gap between the tub and drum - there is nothing in the machine to cause red stains
to check, remove rear half of cabinet, remove heater (held by 1 10mm nut which just loosen and prize out heater) you can then see into the gap between tub and drum. shine in a torch and rotate drum by hand to see if you can spot anything. disconnect from mains first
