Panasonic NA148VX3 replace drum bearings

We have a Panasonic Front loading washing machine which I believe needs drum bearings replaced. Machine is noisy on spin and feels a bit rough when you turn drum by hand. No play in bearings yet. I am trying to find out if bearings are easily replaced and available for this model.

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.

SOURCE: Hotpoint wma76 front load very noisy on spin cycle

If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.

SOURCE: bearing on front load washing machine needs replacing (Frigidaire

You will need to replace the tub rear shell/bearing assembly (part # 131525500).
To do this, practically the whole machine will need to come apart.
To remove the drive pulley, remove rear cabinet panel. Remove the pulley screw and pull back on the pulley (you may need to giggle it as you pull to remove it).
For the shock pins, grab the open end with a pair of vise-grips. On the "pointy" side of the pin press the tab in with your finger (if you can't push the tab in slide a 9/16" socket onto it) and pull the pin out with the vise-grips (twist back and forth slightly as you pull).

A qualified tech could replace the rear shell/bearing in about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I can certainly give you more help if you need it, let me know.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Machine noiser than it use to be when tub spins


From the front of the washer, spin drum by hand, and if it feels rough or is noisy, then the main drum bearings are probably worn.
Another possibility is the motor bearings noisy, or a worn armature.
If the noise is gradually getting worse, then I think it is safe to say it is the main bearings.

Creda IWD12 makes noise when spinning but still works ok


Either a concrete balance weight is loose or broken, or the main drum bearings are worn. Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels noisy or rough, then it is the main drum bearings that have failed.
