It is not normally possible to replace motor bearings, as they are pressed onto the shaft at the time of manufacture, making it virtually impossible to replace them.
I'm afraid it means a new motor.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have same problem.
Front bearing has failed.
Front of motor will come off once I remove the drive pulley.
Pulley is held by staking the end of the motor shaft.
Part way through drilling out the staking, will finish tomorrow with help from my son. (cut left hand with an angle grinder and doc says no workshop work until fully healed!)
May need to make a puller to pull the drive pulley off, then undo the 4 long bolts with flat heads that hold the front housing.
Once off push out bearing in press and off to bearing service.
Bearings are only shielded, not sealed, so I guess have lost grease.Will use high quality sealed bearings, usually a 6200 series and readily available.

check inside your washer for nails or other objects . I already seen a nail fall down in one of the basket holes and the nail stuck into the outer tub not allowing the basket to spin. If you dont see anything in the basket holes, then it is your bearings. The burning smell is coming from your belt. The motor is spinning but your basket is not. It is cheaper to buy a new washer. In ordered to fix your washer you have to rebuild it. The bearing are built into the outer tub of the washer.

How do I fix a high pitch noise when spinning?


If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings.

Amana dlw330 washer belt urned & broke again


Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps

Asko 620 not spinning and not agitating


Clean armature and replace brushes. When you remove the brushes the shut a small pin like device maybe protruding from the brush tip. this is a sure clue.

No reset. Carbon brushes are worrn out. Consider changing the bearings while you have the motor apart. Se http://www.nettoparts.co.uk/shop/frontpage.html for spares.

Asko W620 washing machine not spinning


Sounds like the motor brushes need to be cleaned or replaced. Take the back off the washer, remove the motor and gently scrape the excess carbon or debris off the brushes with a pocket knife. I did this and it ran well for about 50 loads before building back up. I am ordering new brushes now because when I checked the brushes last week they were obviously worn more than 4 weeks ago.

Asko W600 spin cycle not working


Check the brushes oin the motor. It's the most normal fault when this problem appears. Not a big thing to fix for a technician!
