Question about Ariston Technologies AW 149 NA

1 Answer

Hi, My name is Atanas, I am trying to change bearings on our Ariston avd149. I just found out it is not possible to get out the inner drum. How do I support the inner drum with the axis when putting the new bearings so I don't bend the inner drum. In which order I put the bearings on the axis the cross-like part holding the outher drum and bearings: Thanks a lot in advance (hope this was clear enough...)

Hi,
I needed mostly advice on how to put back in place the shaft of the inner drum in the bearings without using a hammer... Now I found solution on this- just use a screw bolt. Hope this works…

Thanks

Hi, my name is Edi, My washer frigidaire GLWS1233 AS2 make wobble noise and I pull drum out , now got to get tub out, but don't see way get tub out. I need help please. Thank you


you need to take all the outer metal off
till your left with both inner and outer only

the place the drum upside down
and use a drum release clamp

releasing the drum take a pusher or a puller clamp
usually has three prongs to set in for pushing
a blow torch is hand

for yokes bearings i use an electric how ring

heat or the right tools

you could crack the housings if you dont use the right tools
and also use bearing locking fluid {super glue kind of}
when fitting new ones

My machine seems to be creating "plucks" on garments. I've run my hand around the drum for any "spikes". Any idea why this is happening please?


I'm sorry to say that this is potentially very bad news. The problem you describe is quite possibly because the main bearing on the drum is worn out, allowing the inner drum to "flop about", when this happend, garments can get trapped between the inner and outer drums, causing pulls in the material and stain marks as the material is rubbed hard against the rubber gasket.


To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.

The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. There should be ABSOLUTELY NO PLAY between the 2 drums, even the tiniest amount will mean the bearings have failed.


If the bearings are bad enough then other symptoms will typically include:


A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings and/or hitting the outer drum)


You will have become aware of the spin cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins.


The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open.


A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is a result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear.


This is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are) will be about ?£20 ($30) or so. But it's a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.

Hi there i have an indesit washing machine and the drum has just stopped turning even by hand thanks craig


If you cannot turn the drum by hand, then there are a couple of possibilities that come to mind.
1- it is possible the drum bearings have siezed up,, remove lower rear panel of washer, and remove the belt the drum should be free to turn.
If it does not, then it is either the main bearings, or there is something fast between the inner and outer drum..
2- if the drum is free to turn, then it could be the moior bearings seized up.

My ariston intergrated washing machine''s inner drum has dropped and is making alot of noise, it seems to be detached and ''loose'' from the outer drum casing


Either the main drum bearings have collpased, or the drum support has corroded and fractured, thus causing the drum to collapse.
It is a major repair, and quite expensive to put right.
In my experience. I think you would be well advised to consider replacing the washer.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hi, there i a knocking noise during the spin cycle on my hotpoint aquarius 6kg wma56 washing machine?? How do i fix it?


Hi,
I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..
To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it
Check for bearing failure by seeing if there is any vertical movement between the moving stainless drum and the fixed outer drum. There should be no vertical movement between them - if there is the bearings have failed and will soon collapse. Check for rusty spray around where the pulley shaft enters the outer drum - early indication of seal and bearing failure. Another method of checking is to remove the drive belt and rotate the drum by hand - there should be no noise, roughness or resistance to rotation. Changing bearings is an involved job, only attempt if you are mechanically competent.
As for changing the bearings.
Power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley. Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits at front, rear or the middle. If the drum is a plastic welded one- ie one which doesn't split, then its game over. If it splits at front or middle, drum will prob. need removal from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension and damping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo the drum fixing system - either a clamping ring or a series of peripheral bolts and split the drum. If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine probably not required. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Seal and bearings will come away with the plate. Seal needs to be dug out with a suitable lever and the old bearings hammered out with a punch from opposing sides of the backplate. Refitting is, as they say, a reversal of the above process.
However Unplug the appliance and take the top off.
Check the weight on the top to see if it's slack.
Open the door and with your palm upward put it on the edge of the drum.
Lift it until the weight comes on. Is there a lot of movement?
Press down on the inner drum and swing it side to side, does it sound/feel rough?
Finally, tip the machine rearward a little and from underneath check to see if the front weight is loose.
If all of the above are ok then it's likely the drum support spider has broken one of it's legs and the inner drum is knocking as it spins.
To sort this out you would need to strip the appliance down and remove the inner drum to try and change the bearings and the inner drum support.
This is a major strip down of the appliance.
Hope this helps

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Ariston Margherita 2000 "AL109X" very noisy when spinning


To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.

If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand.
Also struts and springs must be checked.

Ariston Front Loading Washing Machine error code F07


Error code F07 is indicating that the heater relay is stuck for one reason or another.
This could be a board problem, as this where the relay is located.
However, it would be worth checking that the heater is o/k before you do anything else., as this possibly could cause the relay to malfunction.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Wobble problems


Try lifting the inner drum to check if there is any movement between the inner and outer drums, also turn the drum and listen for any grinding or scraping sound from the rear of the drum. Its possible that your bearings have gone out & need to be replaced. The job is far from easy.
