Is it possible to change the bearings on this model?

sealed units are separate to the tub and drum
I would first remove everything down to the outside drum as the noise could be from an obstruction ( coin/s bra wire, metal objects etc)
At 3 years I would not expect bearing trouble in a sealed unit so explore all other avenues of the noise first
bearings will be noisy at all cycles and not specifically at high speed spin
before you touch it -check the warranty period and if inside that period call the technician

My Maytag mah5500b front load washer makes a loud knocking sound when spinning. It sounds like a problem with the drum. Can I fix this myself?

Could be the bearings or the "spider", the mechanism that holds the drum and is attached to the bearings at the back of the drum. If one of the arms snaps or the bearings go then it sounds really noisy. These are replaceable, but can be expensive and difficult to replace. It may be worth weighing up the repair cost with possibly only a 3 month warranty on the work versus a replacement machine and its' warranty.

2002 pt cruizer changed both front wheel bearings and long axle rightside now there is a humming noise on drivers side when driving and ideas thanks

It is entirely possible to have a bad replacement wheel bearing. There are many cheap ones available and I've found that you get what you pay for. I prefer Timken bearings myself. Also, the drive axle nut torque is critical in ensuring that you don't cause bearing failure. Too loose or too tight will cause bearings to fail in short order. The axle nut is not one that can be "shade tree torqued" by "grunt-power".

Have a GE WSXH208HWW Spacesaver, Washing Basket is wobbling. What is the problem and can I fix it myself?

2 possible problems. On the outside of the tub front and on the top back are cement counter weights that are bolted to the tub. If they are coming loose, they would cause the tub to go off balance and wobble. If just the stainless inner tub is the one that wobbles, that suggests a bad rear drum bearing. The counter weight problem easy to fix once you get the top and back off and just need re-tightened. The back drum bearing is something even trained techs want to avoid. It requires removing the complete tub/drum assembly from the washer----then splitting the outer tub in half to replace the inner drum and bearing assembly. Cost for parts will be excessive and not worth the repair.

There is a wom wom sound and vibration coming from my 03 Trailblazer. I believe it's the wheel bearings. Are they easy to change myself?

yes, it is possible that the spindle bearings are bad. this is a sealed unit!!! have to buy whole spindle. easy to install by experienced mech.
just jack up each side and grab tire top and bottom and try to move back and forth!! any movement is bad!!! just look good and make sure the movement is coming from the spindle area and not the ball joints!!! hope nthis helps!!!

I have an amana Model ALW880QAW Top Loading Washing Machine. It sounds like a bearing is going bad when the washer is in the spin cycle. I am familiar with repairing applicances and I would like to know if...

I have an Amana top loading washing machine.. The machine recently emitted a burning odor and the machine has stopped spinning. when turned to spin cycle there are bumping sounds and it no longer spins. Does this model have a belt which might need replacing or does it have a transmission and does it sound like possibly extensive transmission work. If it is the transmission, is it likely repair costs would be greater than the value of this machine?

Hotpoint wma54 washing machine

Being fairly mechanically adept - I tried this on my old Hotpoint WMA31 -- it took around 90 mins to get the drum out (virtually everything had to come out) and 1- mins to split it in two - then another 30 mins to knock the bearings out. I then ruined one new bearing trying to knock rather than pull it in and had to order a second set - then whatever I tried I could not get the drum fully back on the spindle (which was rather pitted) so ended up scrapping it !

As an aid to putting it back together I took 32 digital photos of different stages of getting the drum out so that is a measure of complexity...
