Re: I need to replace the bearing--how do I get it off??

I have the same problem, repair guy came and said that the main bearing is permanently fixed to the outer tub, so it all needs replacement. I have read horrible reviews about this problem, my machine is only two years old and I'm thinking that I am going to toss it instead of fixing it!

How do i remove the bearings


In a washing machine, the bearings protect the drive shaft from over rotation due to the forces applied to the washtub.
Unplug the washing machine from the power outlet. Turn off and disconnect the washer from the water pipes. Pull the machine forward so that you have easy access to the entire machine.

Unscrew the lid's top two screws and remove the machine's top panel.

Slide out the machine's back panel.

Slide off the fan belt and set it aside.

Unscrew the drive shaft's end bolt. This is the bolt that holds the pulley into position.

Remove the pulley by placing the screwdriver underneath it and gently leveraging it off.

Remove the drum's three bolts that hold its spider bracket into place. If the bolts are sticking use, rust remover and degreaser to loosen them. Do not apply too much pressure to the brackets or you will strip them.

Tap the spider joint gently with a hammer while pulling on it. The entire joint and the bearings should slide off.

Clean up the spider shaft, removing all rust and debris using cloth diapers and rust remover and degreaser solutions.

Tap the new bearings into place.

Tap the new drive shaft seal into place. The drive shaft seal should always be replaced with the bearings to ensure water-tight protection for the machinery.

Reassemble to washer.

My LG M#WM2277HB wont turn the drum. It started making bearing failure type noises a couple loads ago. I just pulled it out , removed the top/back and started it. the motor rotates cw and ccw but the drum...

Oh s***! If the motor turns but the drum does not, the drive shaft has broken loose from the three arms which attach it to the drum. (the part is called the "spider") To repair, remove bolt on end of shaft at center of motor. You may have to cut it with an angle grinder, but don't worry about that, because the shaft has to be replaced anyway. Remove motor rotor and stator. Remove washer front, drain hose, fill hose, shock absorbers, support springs, all wires attached to outer drum, and eventually the entire outer drum. Remove bolts between front and back halves of outer tub to allow removal of inner drum. Remove 6 bolts holding 3 arms of spider to back of inner drum. Re-assemble with new spider and new bolt for end of shaft. If you can do it in under two hours, give yourself a big pat on the back. This is about a 8.5 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale for washer repair. Good luck Mike.

Hotpoint wma76 front load very noisy on spin cycle

If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.

How to change a bearing on front loader washing machine?

To change the bearing(s) and/or seal on a Simpson 45S100C 5.5kg Front loading washing machine:
1) Disconnect from the power, water etc. and find your self some space;
2) Remove the lid (two screws at back of machine) and the back panel. I also took off the concrete weight on top to give myself some more room and less weight to move;
3) Remove the fan belt;
4) Unscrew the bolt on the end of the drive shaft. This holds the pulley in place;
5) The pulley is pushed on to a V-bushing. It may be very hard to get off. I found the easiest way was to put a large screwdriver behind the pulley hub and the 'spider' bracket behind. Then use leverage to pop it off. The V-bushing should then slide off the shaft;
6) Remove the three bolts that hold the ends of the spider to the drum. I found these very hard to get moving and they are also awkwardly placed. Use a socket set and you may need a bit of rust-remover/degreaser (WD-40 in Australia);
7) Remove the three bolts holding the central part of the spider to the drum;
8) Tap the end of the drive shaft with a hammer while pulling on the spider. The whole spider and the bearings should slide off the shaft;
9) The spider holds two bearings (one next to the drum and one next to the pulley). I’d recommend replacing both. In my case and apparently in most cases it is the bearing closest to the drum that gets damaged, usually due to water leaking through the drive-shaft seal. The two bearings are different sizes 6205 and 6206. When ordering replacements, I’d recommend rubber sealed ‘RS’ bearings. There is also a shaft seal that sits between the larger bearing and the tub. The seal comes from Simpson ($25). The bearing can be bought from any bearing supply company and are about half the cost of the ‘official’ bearings, and probably better quality. I paid $16 for the 6205 and $20 for the 6206;
10) Knock out the old bearings. The correct way to do this is with bearing pullers etc, but I used a long steel rod (one of the transport locking rods that new machine’s come with) and a hammer (not even rubber). First knock out the large bearing and the drive shaft seal by inserting the rod through from the other bearing side and hit firmly while alternating the position of the force around the case of the bearing. I propped the spider against a brick to ensure the bearing and seal could pop out freely. Now turn around and repeat for the other bearing;
11) Clean up the spider and shaft, ensuring you remove any rust and debris;
12) Tap the new bearings into place. Again I used a hammer and firm tapping around the ring of the bearing;
13) Tap in the new drive shaft seal;
14) Reassemble.

Ariston al1256t bearing replacement


I just did this on a different model - it is a normal (right-hand) thread

This is best done with the machine lying in its front.

1 - If it's a Torx screw (probably a T40), buy a torx bit for a rachet spanner - Halfrauds do them for about a fiver - you may need an adapter as well if your rachet is 1/2 in drive. This is far better than using a bit in a screwdriver handle.

2 - Heat the pulley around the screw (careful use of blowlamp) as it's fitted with thead lock compund and this helps to soften it.

3 - If that doesn't do it, try a cold chisel and hammmer to knock it around - you need to break the thread lock initially. You might need to replace the bolt after this :-) and you need to be careful not to break the alloy pulley.

4 - If after removing the screw the pulleyt doesn't come off, try heat again and wiggle it off rather than a straight pull.

Bear in mind that after removing the pulley spider, getting the old bearings out and the one ones in is also best done with gentle heating and is not a trivial job.

Use blue thread lock compound when reassembling as this will come off easier next time.

Whole job, start to end took me took 3 1/2 hours

KleenMaid Washing Machine shop manuals/repair instructions

There are manuals available but these only tell you about the parts of the machine and the different cycles etc. Its a workshop manual that you need and these are not discussed anywhere on the net, Im not sure these were ever produced.

just because the level shows it is doesn't mean it really is. check the pedestal first. make sure it is level and all legs are tight and there is no wiggle. next do the same for the machine once it is put back on the base.

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
