Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
How do you replace the bearing.is it an easy job
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.

Personally, my view is that this
is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine
and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in
bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.
be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are)
will be about £20 ($30) or so. But it's a long and horrible job if you haven't
done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in
under an hour, I've done a quite a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've
ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local
repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a
refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back
in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to
question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.
I'm not saying that you couldn't do it if you had the will and the practical temprement, but I would certainly approach the idea of starting the job with a degree of scepticism.
