Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer
Hi, I have a seized drum on a hotpoint wf740 aquarius +. The machine is about 18 months old. I have removed the belt and the motor is fine and the pump is sounding on pump out. The trap under the drum had a coin in it, which I removed, But the drum is seized solid, not even with a fair bit of force will it move at all. I can't see how the pump can be removed as it seems to be built into the drum. There was no gradual bearing failure noise, so I imagine there is something wedged solid between the drum and the tub? Although this is the guess of a complete novice!
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Hi the code will flash that because of the drum being seized in my opinion the bearings have seized to replace them you will need to remove the front of the machine disconnect all the wires from the drum not the machine there are two plastic pegs holding the suspension legs to the drum which you will need to remove. push the pins in at the backof the pegs and pull out the pegs,sorry you will need too remove the two concrete blocks top/bottom first, then remove the pegs lift out the drum remove the fixings around the drum with a t-30/t-40 bit,then split the drum now comes the tricky bit - AT THE BACK OF THE DRUM IS A 13MM BOLT UNDO THIS ONE TAKE OFF THE FLY WHEEL AND THEN REPLACE THE BOLT HIT THIS BOLT AS HARD AND AS CLEANLY AS YOU CAN WITH A LARGE HAMMER SO THE STAINLESS STEEL DRUM COMES OUT THEN YOU NEED TO GET THE OLD BEARINGS OUT THESE CAN BE A PIG SOMETIMES SO DONT GIVE UP THEN REPLACE WITH NEW ONE'S PUT BACK TOGETHER IN REVERSE ORDER.hope this helps if you can think you can do it it's not as bad as it looks ,good luck
