Question about Asko W620
I took out the motor to see why it stopped working,I freed up the motor and got it to spin but I believe the bearings are going bad.It is making some high pitch whining noises.
Can I replace these bearings? or do I have to buy new motor?The motor looks like it doesnt come apart to easy..
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.

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.
