Re: drum bearings

Hammer and cold chisel but try to hit the outside of the bearing not the middle otherwise it may disintegrate. you really need a simple bearing press to put new bearings in

How do i fit bearing to the drum ?

As you should know 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 and removal 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
Be sure not to damage the bearing and drum when installing and removing old one and installing the new bearing

Where to buy the bearing and seal for drum on front loading EWF272EL washing machine

It seems no bearing kit for this model. The drum bearing is hard to replace and seal it properly if you do not have special tool to do it.

Drum bearings

Removal of the front seal (just the side right next to the door needs to be removed) is a spring loaded wire. There is a special tool for it, but it can be done without the special tool. Other than that, mostly phillips head screws and a few metric bolts. The suspension shock absorbers have a tab you need to depress to push them out.

Hotpoint wm80 bearing replacement!!

The drum will have to be removed.
Bearing replacement on ANY Hoover can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Hoover washers require at least 2 specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.

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)
