Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer
Trying to check/change drum bearings on my machine. The main problem is tthe sides and back is 1 piece, therefore the back isnt removerable as with older models.
The problem is how can I get access to the bearing?
And how is it removed ?
Welll its a long job.
first remove the top
then the front control panel.
disconnect any wires connected to the circuit board.
then remove the front panel with the door intact. to do this you must unscrew the the screws in the top and bottom and remove the screws for the door inter lock as well as undue the door gasket from the panel.
Then you got to remove the concrete weights. and pull the pegs in the legs from the drum side.
Then you got to dissconect the drainage at the bottom of the drum from the pump
remove the wires from the solenoid and disconnect the pressure switch from the small plastic tube.
undue the tubing from the soap draw to the drum
remove the clips near the springs.
undue the front metal panel which the board was connected to and remove the drum
if you need anymore help dont be afraid to ask.
