Hi,


For replacing bearings first take the power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley. Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits at front, rear or the middle. If the drum is a plastic welded one- ie one which doesn't split, then its game over. If it splits at front or middle, drum will prob. need removal from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension and damping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo the drum fixing system - either a clamping ring or a series of peripheral bolts and split the drum. If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine probably not required. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Seal and bearings will come away with the plate. Seal needs to be dug out with a suitable lever and the old bearings hammered out with a punch from opposing sides of the back plate. Refitting is a reversal of the above process.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

700LC will not spin


The older Hoover had a problem with the clutch drive seizing. Sometimes it was caused by the aluminium housing on the gearbox breaking or cracking. When this happens, the clutch pawl doesn't release the clutch gear properly. The clutch stays in the locked position and then it wont allow the tub to spin. Its not often the top bearing fails. A common sign of gearbox / clutch failure is a brown oily stain spread all over the inside of the cabinet in line with the bottom of the gearbox. This means that the gearbox has slowly filled with water through a failed gearbox seal and when it gets to this stage, its not an economical repair. Time for a new washer unfortunately.

We've got quite an old type of washing machine: a Hoover A2580 - S: It had been running well from 1991 to last summer, when it slowed down, so the condensator had to be replaced. It worked well for a year,...


Hi,

It sounds like your diagnosis is correct. A failed bearing will cause the symptoms you describe. The bearing can be replaced but is a pretty big job. With the washing machine being almost 10 years old I would recommend looking around for a new one. The bearing replacement will usually run over 1/2 the cost of a new machine.

Drum Bearing Replacement


With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)
