It seems no bearing kit for this model. The drum bearing is hard to replace and seal it properly if you do not have special tool to do it.

SOURCE: bearing noise

Hi there im the wash docotor. With your zanussis once you have removed the back half of the pannel and the top pannel. you will have to then detach the motor wire plug. then the heater wires and also the there is a sensoer on the side of the drum that also has a wiring connection. Also detactch the earth wires Then here come the tricky part. if you look on the top of the drum you have a rubber pipe connected to it comming from the washer draw detach that its easy. Then you have to dicconect the door seal from the front of the machine by the door (do not dissconect from the seal from the drum as you dont have to . Then disconnect the the drain hose. once this is all done you have to disconnect the legs, from the drum side. these are easily done as the pegs come out easily if you push in the pips from one side you can either knock them out with a hammer but it is best to pull em out with either some long bent nose pliers or gripping em in such a way with a monkey ranch Best way og getting the drum out is once you have done all that is to turn the machine onto its back and lifting the casing off leaving the drum on the floor.

SOURCE: suspect drum bearings

most lg front loaders have the plastic outer drums which have about 16 h/duty screws holding the two halves together. extreemly tricky to strip to gain access to inner bearing and seal. Th/stat, motor, piping and other items have to be removed and dissassembled to enable drum to be removed. that repair i suggest for a service repair.

When the unit is off, open the door and spin the drum, does the noise occur? If the answer is no then there is nothing wrong with the bearings. Chances are the hall sensor on the motor is on the way out. Call for service and ask them to replace it. Make sure you are using a "HE" branded detergent,,,, less is best.

Spin Cycle is very loud on front load washing machine


See here
How to fit a Bearing in a Washing Machine | Appliance Repair Help

  • If a washing machine is rumbling, and very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
  • Loud noises when turning the drum by hand can also be caused if the drum itself splits, or the spider at the back of the drum has come away from the drum, is corroded or even broken. This would normally be a loud noise on each revolution of the drum whereas the noise when drum bearings have gone is constant all the time the drum is turning. Lifting the drum checking for excessive play can often reveal a broken or loose drum spider which sometimes only occurs at certain points round the drum (the spider has three arms and is bolted to the drum at three points)

Indesitw123 front load washing machine making very loud noise when spinning


The noise you can hear is the drum bearings, the seal between the drum and bearings has failed and let water into the bearings which has destroyed the bearings.

    The drum on my front loading wash machine is very loose


    I recently replaced my bearings and seal for about $60. I could have bought the bearing cheaper online but I was in a hurry. If you do a search online there are several blogs about replacing these bearings. Here is a link for a service manual for $ 18 http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=659075&PPStack=1 You pretty much have to disassemble the washer but it is not really that difficult depending on your mechanical experience. The manual should lay it all out for you. There are 2 notes on these frigidare washers: Sometimes the spider arms on the inner drum break and you will have to buy the complete inner drum assembly. I have heard they are warranted for 25 years, but they most likely will not warranty them if the owner does the work. Also, Frigidare does not list the bearings seperately, but you can buy the bearings from a bearing supply house, online or in your town. The bearing numbers are on the side of the old bearings when you remove them.
    NOTE- The bearings that came out of mine were 6306-2Z and 6307-2Z (shielded) I replaced mine with 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS (sealed). The significance is that the shielded bearings offer minimal protection from water where the sealed bearings are built to seal out water/contaminants if you new seal ever fails. The seal I used was a CR15939 rubber coated seal.
    If you need any other information, let me know
    Hope this helps

    LG Top Load Washer


    this could be a drain hose loose or broken if the leak only occurs during rinse. If it leaks all the time, could be a broken outer drum or worn tub seal.
    Hold inner drum and turn bothways. If it turns bothways, you have a bad bearing, and hence, a bad tub seal. If it turns in one direction only, bearing's good; but tub seal could still be bad.
