How easy is it to change the drum bearings on my indesit wil163s?

My machine is just out side the guarentee, i live alone and the machine must have done 150 washes max.so i,m extremely diasapointed.

ive had the back off the machine and can clearly see the bearings in the centre of the drum, obviously i,d need to remove the security type screw and what i,d call the fly wheel, then how easy is it to remove the actual bearing? and is it just a matter of alligning the new bearing in place and gentley tapping it home.

thanks chris.
great site here i,l be sticking around for sure. :)

You need to completely remove the drum assembly from the machine, place a piece of wood through the rear spindle and undo the nut, wiggle spindle and it should come off, do not hit with hammer ! split the drum (if splitable type) give the spindle of drum a good sharp whack with a hammer, it should come out of bearing, next you need a longish cold chisel, quite slim, to knock bearings out, i always knock rear bearing out first, then inner,, to replace, use the old bearing to drive the new ones home, only knock outter edge,, if you hit the middle you will damage the bearings,, the seals depending on which type can be fiddily, but again, the same as putting bearing in, but you can tap directly on seal being gentle

You will need to remove the pulley first, the screw in the middle will need a knock to release the loctite.
you will then need to remove the spider assembly, that's the metal cross the bearings are sitting in. there are bolts set around the drum. spray the bearings shaft with oil to help removal, and you may need to hammer the spider as you remove it to loosen it. be careful of the heater.
then knock the bearings and seal out and do the reverse proceedure to put back together.

How do I program the module in an Indesit IWDC6125


indesit washing machines are only made to last just outside the guarentee period these days as the drums are sealed to stop you replacing the drum bearings. much better to buy a reconditioned Hotpoint wm62 they also wash much quicker than any new machine

Hi i have been away for few days washing machine was fine i dont use it very often as i live alone and takes a while to acumilate enough washing to use the machine. its a WIL163 Just loaded the washer...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB. I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
John C

I have an indesit WIL163S that just pumps and nothing else, can't stop it or change program.


If it will not reset, and just keeps pumping water, then it is likely to be a control module fault, or possibly a selector switch problem.
You may have to call en engineer to it.

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 !
