Question about Hotpoint WMA48 Front Load Washer
It involves a complete strip down of washer,literally down to the last nut and bolt.
Some models have one piece tub assy, so it is not possible to change the bearings.
Remove the top cover, and see if the drum is a one piece assy, if it is not, you should be able to see the screws securing the 2 drum halves together, if you cannot see any screws, then the whole outer tub assy has to be replaced, an expensive repair!!!!
tTo change the bearings, the whole tub assy has to be removed from the cabinet, and then the drum has to be split to gain access to the bearings.
Until you get to this stage , you will then be able to determine if the drum shaft is worn, if it is then this will have to be replaced.
All in all a long expensive repair to undertake.
Take my advice, and if the washer is more than 5 years old, then buy a new one.
