Clutch removal on a580-531060 craft an chainsaw

Assuming you want to remove the clutch spider, which typically is left-hand threaded onto the crank. Not knowing if it's an internal (chain drive sprocket is "outboard") or external clutch, here goes for both. After removing bar & chain.
Internal: CAREFULLY (so it doesn't fly) remove clip from crank, remove washer, clutch drum, bearing and/or rim sprocket. Remove recoil starter. Using proper tool to fit clutch "spider" and impact wrench, turn it CLOCKWISE with wrench to unthread it.
External: Remove bar & chain and recoil starter. Using tool to fit the clutch "spider" and socket on impact wrench, spin the spider off CLOCKWISE. You can then remove remainder of clutch & bearing.
Be sure to grease the bearing while it's accessible.
Starter removal avoids applying any load if the crank turns.

Bearing replacement

One of the biggest jobs to do on a washing machine. Remove the drum from the machine, remove the washer drum, knock out bearings, replace drum spider (shaft) fit the new bearings, and drum seal, put everything back together again. Job for a experienced engineer.

More likely to be the shock absorbers, the main bearing or the spider (the casting the drum is fitted to that connects to the rear pulley)

To test the shock absorbers
open the door and press firmly on the base of the drum then release
If the drum bounces up and down like a weight on an elastic chances are the shock need replacing

To check the spider firmly grasp the drum left and right and try to wobble it
then turn the drum 1/4 turn and do it again.
If there is a noticeable movement in one of those two position the spider is broken

To check the bearing
remove the back cover and look for rust stains on the back of the drum. if there is then it will be your bearings

Shocks are a cheap repair, however if the spider or the bearing have failed it my be cheaper to replace the washer

Makes a load banging noise when spinning at high speed

what is the model number? The spider sits onto the drum inside the tub, then the shaft comes through the bearings then the wheel fits onto that. Some machines you can change the spider, others are fixed so the drum has to be changed. Let me know model number and i can find out if bearings are available for you.But to replace them is a big job. I finished 1 this morning.

Is there a reason for the bearings in a front loading machine to keep needing to be replaced

It could be that the new bearings are being fitted onto a worn drum shaft, this would soon cause the bearings to fail again.
If it has not been replaced, then it should be done so.

Hotpoint WMA35 - Noisy on spinning

This could be the bearings.

If it is you have two options:
1 - Buy another washing machine
2 - DIY possible for about £30 with all the RIGHT TOOLS, £100 if doing it properly. And even with the right tools this will take you about 3 hours, probably more.

To replace the bearings you NEED to have:
1) The parts - The replacement bearing kit (£30) and hotpoint recommend a new spider (£65) as well.
2) A tool to push the drum shaft from the casing.
3) A tool to remove the beaings. It is possible to buy a new rear casing with the bearings already fitted for about £70.
4) Patience and a supply of tea!

1 - disconnect everything and I mean everything see number 2.
2 - remove the drum casing from the chasis
3 - take off the pulley wheel
4 - open the casing
5 - remove the drum from the casing. DO NOT USE A HAMMER as the shaft deforms very easily (good job I've a new "spider"!)
6 - fit new "spider" if using. Here is where you find the bolts are rusted completely solid from spider to drum and require drilling out.
7 - remove bearings from casing (hence the need for the bearing removal tool)
8 - fit new bearings and rebuild machine (hence the need for the bearing fitting tool)

However I stopped at number 7 due to not having the right tools and I have no idea how much the right tools cost.

Trust me, take option one! £100 is a third of a new machine!

Bearings on a indest wie 167 washing machine

You can download a user manual for your m/c, but not a repair manual, Go to>
Follow the links. To remove the spider, remove the rear panel, remove drum belt, undo drum pulley, you may have to heat the screw holding the pulley,undo all screws that you can see holding the spider to drum rear.
Withdraw spider, you may have to use some force to pull it off.
Fit new bearings or spider, and reassemble..

Very noisy

The washer is not a sealed unit but the rear drum bearing are also you will need a new spider...To take a look inside - Initially you will see enough from the top to see where things are...

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.

If the Drum bearing has failed it is usually due to over loading or a faulty seal in the drum, water leaks into the inner bearing. This causes corrosion and then ultimately failure.

In the likely event that the bearings have failed (I have had a hotpoint wma33 fail at 23 months...) Its actually cheaper for you to pay hotpoint to fit a new drum (Parts are free for 5 years! you just pay a flat callout fee - believe me its a bargin). + they never ever replacing just bearings, it takes too long for them. They will do a whole drum and spider arrangement in under 2 hours...

I wasted 3 days because these things are really awkward to remove and refit. The callout fee for a hotpoint engineer a fixed cost. I bought a spider see:
This spider costs 61.25 + delivery - ouch.

I bough a half drum thinking I would keep the costs down. Hotpoint will fit half a drum or full drum (Depending on what is on the van for their call out fee) the actual cost of a half drum is 75.99 + delivery see:

and a full drum costs 161.49 + delivery

They take away all the rubbish at the end also!

I know this site is about doing it yourself and I can go into more details about how to do it. But because I did not have the correct tools that hotpoint must have to pull the bearings from the housing etc - I feel I would be wasting your time.

I hope this helps

Please don't rate me as unhelpful, this is not a simple change the bearings task.
