Unscrew the center nut completely, lever the metal plate as far forward as you can, pull out the thermistor (thermostat) out of the grommet, then get a screwdriver or similar and lever the rubber seal out, be careful not to split it, or you will have to fit a new heater,
Coat the seal with lubricant before trying to refit the element back into the new tub, it is difficult to get back in.
Normally I would fit a new element complete with new seal.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I need to replace belt on a Kenmore 417.94802301 How do I get to it?


Unplug it. Get the topthemobilian_2841.jpg off then remove the splashplate. themobilian_2842.jpgRemove the controls. Then the front. themobilian_2843.jpgRemove the 3 screws holding the drum to the rear (or if you are Hercules you can just lift it out). themobilian_2844.jpg
Check the glides to see if they are what cause the belt to break. themobilian_2845.jpg
themobilian_2846.jpg
Note: this is the old style yours might be different and not have this type setup.

See the small klixon? If that dude trips the dryer won't run. That is the thermal fuse.

Check the bearing in back for wear. When they go out the drum falls into the heater element and has a meltdown

Metal (wire?) stuck in rotating drum cavity.


Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!

I have a hotpoint aquarrius WMA 32 My element has gone how do I remove the old one?


Remove lower rear cover of washer, you will see the heater with 2 wires attached to it, and a thing that is called the thermistot, remove 2 heater wires, and loosen center securing nut, prize old heater out with a screwdriver or similar, fit new element and thermistor, reconnect and make sure it is tightened up securely.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bearing noise on Indesit WDG1295


you will have to open the machine lid to see if its a plastic drum or metal.
the metal drum is easier as it has a 'spider asssembly'. remove this after taking off the pulley by taking out the bolts that hold it and bang it off being carefull of the heater element. remove the bearings and seal and refit in reverse order you took it off.
i would not advise replacing plastic drum bearings as they are a pain, removal of the rear of a plastic drum easy but not putting it back !

Remove the rear panel of the washer.
You will see the heater element at the rear of the drum,it has 2 wires going to it.
The thermistor as it is called is located at the end of the element,, unplug the connector on the thermistor. and pull the old one out, refit new thermistor, and connector.

Indesit wil 103 heater element


no need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out
