Replacing drum bearing on a ZANUSSI FJS 874 front loader ?

This is not a simple job, it can be fine but requires the complete disassembly of the machine to change the bearings, there are 2 bearings and a seal that require replacement, I can assist in guiding if you wish to do so, it takes around 3 hours total to strip and rebuild.

Zanussi 1400 jet model nowjd1457w ball bearings have come out

If ball bearings have come out, then there are only 2 possible places they could have come from.
1- The motor bearings.
2- the main drum bearings.
In both cases, it is a expensive fault to rectify.
To check, remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, this should help you to tell if it is the main bearings or the motor.

Clanging noise out of the machine when going through the spin cycle. The noise gets worse as the spin speed increases. Are there bearings that can be replaced ?

It could be a number of things. Anything from drum bearing failure to something as simple as a coin becoming trapped inside the tub under the drum.

Removing/replacing main drum bearing on a zanussi WDT1085

Yes you do need to remove the drum, it entails stripping the washer down, and it is normal practice to replace the complete drum half with the bearings pre-fitted..
It is not a job to undertake, unless you feel competent to do do it, as it entails al ot of work and time..
Good luck if you decide to proceed.
Plz rate my suggestions.

Zanussi FJS1197 w ashing machine making knocking noises when spinning

There is an answer at this link:
"some you can get at and some you have to lift over the top, when you get there you will need to smack the bearings out, maybe a old socket set with a long tube just to fit inside the bearing hole?. for what its worth go to the tip you might find one, that just wants a door seal?"
You must have some technical experience.
good luck!

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
