Hello
Well to change the drum bearing on your machine is pretty straight forward if you have some sort of mechanical grasp but pretty much impossible if you dont..

the procedure is

first take of the top lid two screws either side and it comes off by lifting thefront end of the top and a slight push back and off ...

Then take out the soap draw and undue the 3 screws there.. remove the control panel by unclipping all the wires..

Then the front panel with door you have to remove the 3 screws at the top and 3 at the bottom undue the screws by the door lock and remove the ring around the door gasket and detach the gasket from the front panel.. then simply lift the panel upwards and it will come off..

the remove the rear panel..

Then undue the weights as it will make the job eaiser..

Then remove detach the rubber pipe leading int o the drum from the bottom of the soap draw..

then detach the wire from the solinoids at the back and unlip the little tube that is attache to the pressure switch don not remove the wires from the pressure swtich..

then at the rear of the machine behind a balck cover are the heater wires remove the cover and the wires. you will see at teh bottom of the machine that he wire are held to the drum via tie-clips remove cut all the clips as you will have to replace them after wards..

then remove the wires from the motor ..

then remove the pegs that hold the legs in place which connect to the drum..

then you know the metal panel which the control panel was connected to undue that now. and throw it ove complet with the wiring loom and pressure switch to the right hand side of the machine,,

now unclip the little white things on the top at the sides where thesprings sit and take out the drum...

detach the motor from the drum and remove the springs

The drum has 16 screws around it undue all theses they are star T-10 i think. undue all of them and split the drum open ...

undue the fly wheel and remove the inner drum ...

get your hammer out and knock out the bearing you might need some kind of small bolster or punch.. to remove these and if your bearings are damaged badly then your your probably end up with the outer cone stuck to the bearing shaft,,, be paitient clean it wd40 it and eventually is should come out.. now if you need anymore help then let me know

cheers vaccs../..

SOURCE: how to change drum bearings

Right - all washing machines are pretty similar except between manufacturers such as Dyson, who use such things as three seperate drums.

The average washing machine is simply a motor attached by a belt to a drum, with a programming unit that connects to a door sensor and heating element, and a seal that goes around the drum.

Since we are dealing with Hotpoint, the first thing to do is take off all panels from the front, the top, and the back.

From the front: You will be able to see your drum, and should be able to undo the seal. Basically at this point, unscrew everything attached to whatever I describe - remembering where they go. Now the front seal is sometimes attached to the case that surrounds the drum - usually with a heating element attached to it on some models.

From the back: You will see the belt attached to a flywheel that turns the drum. Rotate the drum to check that the rumbling / banging noise is still occurring. Check that the drive belt isn't damaged or worn as this can cause problems. Unscrew the huge bolt that holds the flywheel on to the drum (rotate anti-clockwise). This will usually take a lot of force and is better to use a large spanner, lock it in place, and turn the actual drum with your hands if you can't undo it. Now when this comes off, you will be able to pull the drum free. Move it around until it comes away. The bearings may drop off the drum's shaft so retrieve them. Check to see if they fall apart as this indicates the bearing's seal has gone totally. This is the part to replace. Buy a replacement the exact same size for your model of washing machine and reassemble - ensuring that all screws go back in the right place.

Hope this helps. Remember that it is just a case of unscrewing things in the right order. You learn best by just doing - so if you are mechanically minded - this sort of thing will be a doddle. If you get stuck and can't remember how to reassemble it - call out a repair man and watch how he fixes it as this will of course allow you to try it if it goes bad again ( a common problem I've been told with Hotpoint and Zanussi models since they are manufactured using cheaper parts than others. )

SOURCE: Replace drum bearings on hotpoint aquarius wf000g

You really don't want to know how but here it is. The bearing is located in the rear shell and is not removable the rear shell has to be replaced which means removing the tub assembly from the machine and completely disassembling. With 30 years of appliance repair the last one I did took about 3 hours.

I have a Hotpoint WMD 960 Ultima. When I remove the washing after a cycle, the clothes are covered in dirty marks. can you tell me if this is something you can advise me about?


Look within the drum and observe if there is any dirt on it. Also check the quality of water. Check if there is any dirt /grease from the drum bearings due to failure of the bearings/seals.
Finally have the machine cleaned using good detergent cleaner , please check the link below for some tips:
