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.

Washing machine noisy when on a spin


  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.

    Replacing drum bearings is very costly, average cost around £130 so you would do better to replace it.

    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.
    .Thanks.

    I have just disconnected the inlet pipes on my Zanussi FJ1296 Washing machine but forgot to look which way round the go for putting them back - I can see no indication on the machine as to which inlet is...


    inner one is hot and outer one is cold.
    to check after fitting hoses, put on rinse program and only cold water should come in. if hot water comes in then you have the hoses wrong way round.
