Some models like the WE12 have sealed drums where the bearings can't be changed. You have to buy a complete unit for about £120.

It is a normal right hand thread, what you need to do is to apply heat to it with a blow torch,this wiil expand the metal , and should enable you to unscrew it.

you will have to open the machine lid to see if its a plastic drum or metal.
the metal drum is easier as it has a 'spider asssembly'. remove this after taking off the pulley by taking out the bolts that hold it and bang it off being carefull of the heater element. remove the bearings and seal and refit in reverse order you took it off.
i would not advise replacing plastic drum bearings as they are a pain, removal of the rear of a plastic drum easy but not putting it back !

all of the newer indesit washing machines have whats called a welded drum meaning they cannot be split open.the thing about this is to change the bearings you have to buy a full drum. best option is to go through the indesit company themselves. aprox cost £100 if under 5 years and £140 if over 5years. hope this helps

How do i change the bearings on my indesit we12s macine


Sorry but you can't.

Your model has a polypropylene outer drum and the bearings cannot be removed without breaking it. The only fix is to either replace the entire drum assembly or just the outer drum which is supplied with bearings ready-fitted. If you do go ahead with the repair it's a good idea to replace the drive belt at the same time unless it's absolutely perfect.

As Indesits are super-low priced machines to start with the repair is rarely economically worthwhile as a machine with worn bearings will usually have many other worn parts as well just waiting to fail. Noisy bearings make a horrible noise but usually continue working for quite a while, so it may be better to grit your teeth and put the likely repair costs into the savings towards a new machine.
