Question about Hotpoint BWM12 Front Load Washer
Normally this macine operates ultra quietly however recently it has got more and more noisy. I have removed the access panels and although there is some movement, the outer casing is stable. When I lift the internal drum there is some movement so i suspect that the bearings may have gone. If so, do i have to replace both front and back bearings? If so is the thread holding the drum on a right-hand thread? I do have some experience in washing machine repairs but i would welcome any advice.
Remove the back of the machine to expose the inner drum pulley. Need to know if this pulley is rotating and if there is any side to side play.
The noise you are discribing does sound like a rear bearing that is mounted in the external tub housing. Depending on the age of the machine, this bearing is NOT replacable. The outer tub must be replaced because the bearing is molded into the drum.
