SOURCE: replace drum bearing

To complete this repair correctly and to prevent problem re occuring within months you must change the inner drum spider at the same time as the bearing kit, otherwise you are wasting your time, to complete the repair if you have not done one before will take you aprox 1 to 3 hours depending on space available and practicle ability, here goes, remove lid and outer case from machine to do this remove bolts on lower back and two side bolts (under small white covers) remove bolts along top edges both sides on top of macnine, remove cabinet, remove motor, remove hoses, remove heater and thermostat wires, noting location for refitting, remove suspension leg pins and lift outer drum assembly complete fron lower frame, split two halves of outer drum by removing bolts around centre seem, split drum in two, remove drum pully, refit pully bolt and drift inner drum out having put nut back on drum spider thread to avoid flaring shaft, using hammer knock shaft through bearings, then using a chisel or similer object knock out bearings and seal, reverse process refitting new bearins and spider, make sure to replace centre outer drum seal, as these are prone tro leaking I suggest you also seal with a layer of clear silicon, and problems contact me again, not really a job for a novice. Good Luck you will need it. Regards Advisor

SOURCE: replace washing machine bearings

It is a very involved process with the tank having to be extracted form chassis. There is really no step by step instructions for this, but most reports say it is not economical to do this yourself. There may even be restrictions in your zip code. You should hire a technition to do this and the job takes about 2 hours.

I hope I was able to fixya problem and I wish you the best with this.

Where can I get a replacement tub bearing kit?


The part number you will need is W10435302. This KIT contains a tube of high temp grease, 1 tube of Pliobond glue, 1 bearing shaft, 1 upper and 1 lower bearing, 1 rubber tub seal, 1 thrust washer, 1 aluminum spacer, 1 set of instructions--check it carefully--if **anything** is missing, take it back and get another. You will also HAVE to have a special tool kit to remove the old bearings and install the new ones. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE KIT EXACTLY. The bearing repair tool kit is W10447783. You will need a 2lb steel mallet. If you've never done this before, I strongly advise calling for service. When setting the new bearings, that aluminum spacer has to be JUST loose enough to be able to move but *not* move freely. It's a "feel" sort of thing when tightening up the tool to press the new bearings in. I hope I helped you!

Makes a very loud noise when spinning


Sounds like the main bearings have failed, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough or is noisy, then the bearings have failed, a major repair!!!!

Bearing noise louder when on spin


It is obvious that the main drum bearings have failed, this is a major repair, and not one to undertake yourself, unless you know what you are doing and feel competent to tackle the repair.
May be cheaper to replace the washer long term.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Zanussi IZ12 bearings gone & plastic fragments in drum


Probably all parts inside drum is ok.Heating element is the only damageable item and a sensor.Changing bearings you must separate the drum, all screws in middle of drum must out and then bearing and zimmerring can be changed.Jan

Dryer problem


You need to replace the rear drum bearing, and also the plastic bearing pads at the front of the dryer, where the drum goes round against the front panel.
There is a repair kit that contains all the parts you need to carry out this repair, with instructions on what to do.
P
It does involve stripping the dryer down to complete these repairs.

Neptune washer load noise.


I do know there is a set of bearings on the drum drive shaft. There is an inner and an outer. Some places mention that these bearings are no longer available. However, I found on ebay a gentlemen who sells these bearing and the seals in a kit for about $80.00. It comes with instructions on how to repair and will save a lot of money. I have done this once already to the same washer, now I am doing it again. If you search on ebay maytag neptune parts you will find his listing for a bearing kit. He also describes the jet engine noise.
