Question about Washing Machines
My BAUKNECHT WA 3700 has become progressively more noisy when the drum is rotating and it seems the bearings are up for replacement. I found the inner/outer bearing and seal for 5-10 quid each online but I'm not sure whether I would also need the DRUM BEARING HUB which is around 77 quid on ransomspares. Does anyone know how likely it is that I will require the drum bearing hub. If it is required it is probably not worth repairing.

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.

Yes the bearings can be changed on this truck. The bearing races will need to be removed from the rotor to do this use a punch and hammer once the rotor is removed. You will need inner bearing and race, outer bearing and race, and a seal, plus grease to pack the bearings. The hub on these trucks is the rotor. Please rate.

hey codycarroll, if it makes you feel better; I did the same thing, my audi fell off the jack and the brake rotor(with the weight of the car on it) landed on my foot and then rested there....not fun for the next 2 minutes of extreme panic and pain!
