Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
Changing the bearings on this appliance is a straightforward job. Unfortunately it's also a complete strip down of the appliance. The whole drum assembly has to come out of the appliance and be broken down to it's component parts, then the bearings and bearing seal have to be pulled from the rear half of the outer tub and the new ones pressed in. The front of the appliance comes off to facilitate removal of the tub assembly. You have to work your way through this methodically and make careful notes of what part goes where and also of the wiring. I suggest using a digital camera to take photographs as you go along. To replace you have to take out inner bowl.This how to remove the inner bowl. You must lift lid and then remove Two Screws From The Front Hob (Theres Plastic caps over Screws) Hob Lifts Back and Remove Agitator .Then unclip BIAS spring from front left suspension Rod. Remove Bowl Cover (Plastic ring) Bowl Lifts Out You can remove 3 Spline Drive Screws (IE Drive Spline is Plastic Piece Under Agitator) They generally come out with not much fuss. Just use a bit of back & forth up & down movement .You have to take out Outer Bowl complete with motor Pump etc Attached. To get that out you have to remove suspension & drain hose clips Etc. Once you?ve got the whole outer bowl out turn him upside down & remove Motor & stator Etc. Then you can get to shaft seals & bearings. Just click below smple in how to fit the bearings.. http://www.keepingupappliances.com/repair-help/appliance-repair/washing-machine-help/how-to-fit-a-bearing-in-a-washing-machine/ Hope it may helps: Regards: VOTIT

If you are new to this, you will have to give your selfapproximately 8 hours. In real time this is 2 days of anyones time.We engineers can do this job in about 2 hours or so but this isnot a race as we only want to do this the once.
I’m assuming you already have a decent tool kit otherwise youwouldn’t be attempting this washing machine bearing change. A decentscrewdriver set, a few open ended spanners - 10mm, 13mm, 17mm, 19mm -and a decent hammer, a big one, no lets make that a really big one. Asan apprentice engineer, brute force and ignorance was my biggest assetand it still carries to this day so don’t be afraid to use a big hammer.. but use it wisely... coz unlike apprentice engineers ur working on ur machine......
Power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley.Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits atfront, rear or the middle. If at front or middle, drum will prob. needremoval from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension anddamping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo thedrum fixing system either a clamping ring or a series of peripheralbolts and split the drum.
If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine prob. notrequired. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Sealand bearings will come away with the plate.
Seal needs to be dug out with a suitable lever and the old bearingshammered out with a punch from opposing sides of the backplate.Refitting is as they say a reversal of the above process.
Below I have included a drawing of a typical washing machine drum. Thiswill help you identify the parts and aid your attempt and dismantlingthe washing machine.
