Bearing replacement on Creda IWD 12drum DIY or not?

Hi

My Creda IWD12 has recently become very noisy when spinning.
I whipped the top/back off and removed the drive belt and it looks like the bearings in the drum are shot.
Is this a DIY repair (i have no manual) or if not what should new bearings cost to be fitted.

Thanks

I've done it myself, to a Hotpoint if I recall correctly.

Wasn't simple, but you can destroy the old bearing getting it out (not a problem), and I think I was quite lucky to find the right size socket to drift the new one in.

Got new bearing off eBay.

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle


Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

Washer noisy in spin cycle


It sounds like your drum bearings are about to go. I am not familiar with this model, but I would assume it is pretty much like all other front-loaders. Bearing kits can be purchased for all models but there is a great variance in cost eg. in europe €25-€75. It is also quite a difficult job to undertake for the sunday diy enthusiast as it involves stripping down the machine and removing the drum. If you are going to repair the machine as opposed to replacing it I would strongly advise doing it asap and continued use will cause the bearings to collapse rendering the machine irrepairable. Hope this helps.

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.

Creda IWD12 makes noise when spinning but still works ok


Either a concrete balance weight is loose or broken, or the main drum bearings are worn. Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels noisy or rough, then it is the main drum bearings that have failed.

Creda IWD12 filter.


As far as I remember it goes like this.
take the filter in your hand and turn the knob counter clock wise intill it almost comes off. Then gently shuff it into the filter hole. Push it in as far as you can and than tighten it again.
