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.

My 35mm circulersaw model p6455 450watt black & decker seems to be overheating & the blade doesent spin properly? how do i fix this whats the problem?

I can't find any references to a B&D saw with model number P6455 but it sounds like you have one or two bad armature bearings or bushings if so equipped. If they are bad it will make a lot of noise at startup and the motor will get hot and stop working because it's working harder than it should and building up excess heat. It may be possible to replace the bearings if the armature and field weren't overheated too badly. You'll have to search the web for your make with the proper model numbe to find if parts are available and if it's worth fixing.

ASKO 7000 series washer drum stopped rotating. Smelled of burning. Could not turn the drum by hand. Guessing a burned out bearing as electronics and pump still work and are trying to turn steel drum. ...

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.

I believe asko says this is normal at start up and should stop after the drum has been spinning for a bit.

Motor/Drum doesn't turn/spin & belt appears to be OK

With the belt off can you spin the motor freely by hand? If no then the bearings are froze and the motor has to be replaced. If yes and the motor will not start when power is applied then the motor needs to be replaced. If it starts without the belt on but not with, then the drum is bound somewhere and has to be freed.

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 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.
