Servis 1200 very noisy in spin modes. Inner drum seems to be very loose and wobbly. Noise sounds like a roller with flat spots running on the drum, or a very bad (failed) bearing. Machine is 12 years old,...


the bearings have gone, if the drum can be split, remove complete drum and replace bearings, if you dont think its something you can do, dont attempt it, but to be honest, its realitivly easy

Indesit WIDL1265 - Noisy on Spin


Hello, this is a symptom of drum bearing wear, and what you need do is to check the wear to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only moves a minutes amount. If it moves more than a millimeter or two, that means it is probably worn bearings and you will need to replace it.
Thanks

Drum is stuck and does not move after a noiny spin. pls advice.thanks


Sounds like possibly the main drum bearings have seized.
To check, remove the rear panel of washer, remove the drum belt, and try to turn the drum by hand, if it is noisy or rumbling, or not turning at all, then likely the the drum bearings have seized.
This is a major repair, and could be expensive!!!

How do i change the bearings on my indesit we12s macine


Sorry but you can't.

Your model has a polypropylene outer drum and the bearings cannot be removed without breaking it. The only fix is to either replace the entire drum assembly or just the outer drum which is supplied with bearings ready-fitted. If you do go ahead with the repair it's a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time unless it's absolutely perfect.

As Indesits are super-low priced machines to start with the repair is rarely economically worthwhile as a machine with worn bearings will usually have many other worn parts as well just waiting to fail. Noisy bearings make a horrible noise but usually continue working for quite a while, so it may be better to grit your teeth and put the likely repair costs into the savings towards a new machine.

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


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.

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 !

Indesit widl 126-problem with the drum,moving back and forth to much and noisy.


It would seem that the bearings go on this model, which causes the inner drum to knock and bang against the outer during spin. If you continue to use the machine without replacing both sets of bearings, it will cause irreparable damage and the machine will need to be replaced.
