Hello,It's fairly straight forward,not easy though.The facial comes off(take the dispenser out and remove the four screws), front of the machine comes off (3 screws at the bottom and 3 behind the facial,the outer tub front comes off.)The pulley on the rear comes off,the inner drum can be knocked through.This gives you access to the bearings and bearing seal,not the easiest to get out.A lot of the time the outer race is left behind from the front bearing and it's a nightmare to get out.Hotpoint use a special bearing tool,get yourself a spider and bearing kit as well as a new tub seal.
Thanks

My hotpoint washing machine WF620, squeeks when it is washing and spinning


On most hotpoint wash machines you cant replace or grease the bearing you have to replace the whole drum which cost around 100 pounds from hotpoint and a couple of hours labour its a common problem on hotpoint machines.
hope this helps.

Need to change the drum bearings on a hotpoint wm63p anyone done a video showing how to do it?


If the motor bearings need replaced, you're better off just replacing the whole motor. Save yourself time.

Replace drum bearings on hotpoint aquarius wf000g


You really don't want to know how but here it is. The bearing is located in the rear shell and is not removable the rear shell has to be replaced which means removing the tub assembly from the machine and completely disassembling. With 30 years of appliance repair the last one I did took about 3 hours.

Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.


If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

We need Bearing


Sadly, some of these machines were manufactured with a completely sealed drum making bearing replacement impossible. If the shop is selling you a complete drum, I would say you have such a machine otherwise they would sell you a bearing kit. Lots getting caught with this one :(

Peace,
From ngafm,


I understand that you have,

HAVE REPLACED DRUM BEARINGS, MACHINE RUNS,BUT WILL NOT COMPLETE WASH CYCLE ( FILLS, WASHES BUT WILL NOT MOVE ONTO SPIN ) TRYING TO GET WIRING DIAGRAM TO CHECK I HAVE RECONNECTED THINGS IN RIGHT PLACE !

How old is this washer that you are spending so much money in parts for?How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!
Sounds like you really need a Hotpoint trained tech , so as not to spend weeks repairing, or not your washer.
My father and grandfather used to teach me , ("When in dought, don't)

If I were there I could show you the wiring order without the diagram!!!!!!!!!!

In the USA thousands of deaths and house fires happen when corners are cut, and cost home owners much more than the few bucks they plan on saving!
Do it right, like the rest of the things you did in you life to get this far!
Call a factory service and let them help you.
Stay healthy!
You will be fine.

Bless You,

Please give me a good rating for this fine advice i give you, before you sign off.

Thank You

You need to check the lateral movement of the drum if it moves by more than 1-2 mm then the bearings need to be replaced.
