SOURCE: replace drum bearing

To complete this repair correctly and to prevent problem re occuring within months you must change the inner drum spider at the same time as the bearing kit, otherwise you are wasting your time, to complete the repair if you have not done one before will take you aprox 1 to 3 hours depending on space available and practicle ability, here goes, remove lid and outer case from machine to do this remove bolts on lower back and two side bolts (under small white covers) remove bolts along top edges both sides on top of macnine, remove cabinet, remove motor, remove hoses, remove heater and thermostat wires, noting location for refitting, remove suspension leg pins and lift outer drum assembly complete fron lower frame, split two halves of outer drum by removing bolts around centre seem, split drum in two, remove drum pully, refit pully bolt and drift inner drum out having put nut back on drum spider thread to avoid flaring shaft, using hammer knock shaft through bearings, then using a chisel or similer object knock out bearings and seal, reverse process refitting new bearins and spider, make sure to replace centre outer drum seal, as these are prone tro leaking I suggest you also seal with a layer of clear silicon, and problems contact me again, not really a job for a novice. Good Luck you will need it. Regards Advisor

SOURCE: removing/replacing main drum bearing on a zanussi WDT1085

Yes you do need to remove the drum, it entails stripping the washer down, and it is normal practice to replace the complete drum half with the bearings pre-fitted..
It is not a job to undertake, unless you feel competent to do do it, as it entails al ot of work and time..
Good luck if you decide to proceed.
Plz rate my suggestions.
.Thanks.

SOURCE: The drum has started making a noise an appears to be free-er than usual

Remove top cover and look at outer drum, if it is plastic, then it is a complete stripdown of m/c, not recommended unless you really know what you are doing.
If it is a metal outer drum, then it can be done from rear of washer, without too much hassle.
If you are in the u/k, and you need spares, then go to,

Replacing drum bearing on a ZANUSSI FJS 874 front loader ?


This is not a simple job, it can be fine but requires the complete disassembly of the machine to change the bearings, there are 2 bearings and a seal that require replacement, I can assist in guiding if you wish to do so, it takes around 3 hours total to strip and rebuild.

Zanussi zwf 1221w drum bearing replacement, is this an easy job to do


This is not an easy repair to carry out, it involves a complete strip down of washer, and removing the whole drum assy from the washer, and until it is stipped down, you will not know if the drum shaft is worn, if it is, then this puts it way beyond an economical repair.

Washing machine noisy when on a spin


  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.
