It is a fairly straight forward repair to do, if you know what you are doing.
The bearing comes as a bearing kit, consisting of 2 bearings and a shaft seal, yuo will also need a new container front seal, and depending on how badly the bearings are worn, you may need to fit a new drum shaft as well.
Again depending on how badly the bearings are worn, they can cause wear in the bearing housing, this being the case, then you would have to fit a new outer tub.assy complete,
This then puts it beyond economical repair.
Obviously , you will not know what is req'd until it is stripped down.
Plz rate my comments towards providing a solution to your problem.
Thankyou.

Drum will not turn


Remove the back panel or look under the unit. There is a belt that goes from the drum to the motor. Either the belt is broken or the motor is no good anymore

Hotpoint WT540 Bearing Change. I have got the drum out but I am having problems spliting the drum. Is it bonded or are there any tricks I can use to split the drum without destroying it


If there are no visible screws or other obvious means of the 2 drum halves being joined together, then it is not possible to change the bearings, as it is a one piece drum.
Current models are one piece, earlier models had screws securing the drum halves together,
Hope this helps..

Hotpoint first edition wma 11 drum bearings removal


Hey kevin that outer cone of the front bearing is a mission im telling ya...

But from experience ive found that by cleaning around it ( i use a metal brush on a drill ) and using wd40 and letting it soak in for a few hours its makes like a lot easier,,

I use a bolster with an end similar to a crow bar to just get inbetween the tiny gap and a very big lump hammer to know out the cone.... Best way knocking it from side to side ie bottom the turn the back half of the drum round and knock the top then the sides,,

hope this helps....

cheers mate..
