SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: replace washing machine bearings

It is a very involved process with the tank having to be extracted form chassis. There is really no step by step instructions for this, but most reports say it is not economical to do this yourself. There may even be restrictions in your zip code. You should hire a technition to do this and the job takes about 2 hours.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and I wish you the best with this.

Probably all parts inside drum is ok.Heating element is the only damageable item and a sensor.Changing bearings you must separate the drum, all screws in middle of drum must out and then bearing and zimmerring can be changed.Jan

SOURCE: noisey drum, can bearings be replaced on zanussi zwf 1421 w

Yes they can. Search for a service manual for instructions, on the net. Parts are not usually exspensive, Repairmen are. I did mine in less than an hour.

Spin - loud noise - switched off - drum wont turn


I'm just hazarding a guess here, but it sounds like the bearings have gone (if you try to turn the drum by hand and it sounds noisy and grinding/crunchy then I think it would be the bearings). I'm certainly no expert though.

Zwf12070w1 replaced belt now very noisy on fast spin


Hi. Your mistake with not tentioning the belt when you switched probably caused your main bearing to shot. Check if your motor is centred with the drum

I have a Zanussi ZWF12070W1 washing machine. It's


Hello,

Hope I can help.When you press the start button is there a buzzing coming from down by the filter if so Check that there is not something stuck in the filter.You will have to be careful depending on how much water is left in the drum so put some towels down and undo filter slowly or get the machine near a door then release filter out onto a door step.when drained shine a torch up inside filter and see if the little plastic blade on pump can turn but do not try and force it,if you do find anything in there then try it again and check the pockets.If there is still a fault you will have to call out your Engineer.

Good Luck

Hi there my machine has gone very loud when spinning,washes perfect,any advice


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front of the washer, if it feels rough, or is noisy or rumbling, then the the main bearings have failed.
A major repair!!!.

Washing machine noisy when on a spin


  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.

    I think the bearings have gone on my zanussi aquacycle fls 1183w. can i do this myself, or do i need a new machine.


    I have just done this myself and to be honest it was quite easy.
    you will need bearings l replaced both front and rear as the cost of each was nothing, a new bearing seal and a drum gasket as the drum has to come apart.
    Tools are a digital camera ,socket set, torx key set, set of spanners a cold chisel and a hammer. And you need the old bearings to put the new ones in

    Machine won' spin


    It sounds as though the main drum bearings have failed.
    If you turn the drum by hand and it feels rough or you can feel it grating or rumbling, then the main bearings have gone.
    Quite a major and expensive job to put right, you may find it more econonomical to purchase a new one.

    My zanussi aquacycle 1100 is making a very heavy clonking noise on spin cycle.Have you any suggestions? Thanks Craig


    Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone.
    Turn the drum by hand and if it feels rough or noisy , the bearings have gone.
    There should be little or no noise when you turn the drum by hand.
    It is quite an involved repair , as it entails a complete strip down.
    Plz rate my comments.
    Tanks, and merry xmas.
