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.

DOES THE DRUM SPLINE SHAFT NEED ANY LUBE ON IT.


outside the drum, NO. A smear of of silicon grease may be added to the bearings when the shaft is fitted. A matter of choice. If there is a bad rumbling noise then no amount of lubriction is goin to cure it. It needs new bearings and spider.

Lg intellowasher wd-8013f is very noisy


it will definitely be the bearings and possibly the spider as well. the spider is attached to the bowl. the spider is made of aluminum and they corrode all the time. open the door to the machine and grab hold of the steel bowl, has it got movement on it. if it has then the spider and bearings are faulty, also the main shaft seal will need replacing.nearly every time i went to an LG 8013f that was noisy it was the bearings and or spider. hope this helps. please reply 4 more help. good luck.

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!

Method
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>
www.indesit .co.uk
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..
plz rate this solution.

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:
http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=954798&brand=&model=wma33&part=spider
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: http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=639770&brand=&model=wma33&part=drum

and a full drum costs 161.49 + delivery
see: http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=639763&brand=&model=wma33&part=drum

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.
