Bearings gone


If the bearing are gone, that is a good indicator of overall wear and tear, thus, I would recommend that you indeed cut your future losses and get a nice new unit with a warranty.

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a aquarius hotpoint 340, bearing gone


You have to split the drum to replace the bearings

The reason the bearings have gone is that water has leaked into them and the soap content has destroyed the grease

There is a carbon seal on the spider assy which attaches to the back of the drum , this normally cracks so the spider or seal has to be replaced

My machine bangs on a full spin.is it the drum bearing?its a hotpointwf340g.how do you replace bearing or fix this problem.


If it bangs it doesn't necessarily mean it is the bearing that is gone. It could just be a imbalance on the load inside. To check if bearings are gone open the door and at the rear of the door seal nearest the inner drum use your fingers to hold down the outer drum, will be at rear edge of seal, now use your other hand at the top pressing the inner drum edge and now press down on outer drum and up on inner drum. If bearings are gone her will be a lot of movement between the two. If no real evident movement then you can feel pretty sure it's not the bearings. Check suspension for signs of wear and check for loose weight block, also check for loose components inside the shell that may be hitting the outer drum. Could also be that the machine is unbalanced if the feet adjusters are not properly adjusted to level the machine correctly.

The bearings of my Dyson are gone. Are they


can it be fixed? yes.is it easy? no not by a long shot.there are two bearings in the drum one you will never get to needs factory tools to take apart. the other is the main steel bearing the drum spins on.now it is possable to get a patten mached bearing from a bearing supplyers but...this is just the bearing not the water seal and 9 out of 10 times its the water seal that go's and washes the greese out of the bearing and the bearing starts to rust and then grinds itself away and collapes!so it may fix it for a while 3-6 months at a push.plus the bearing is pushed into the drum on a large press like a car wheel bearing.i had to use a 50 ton press to fit my bearing back in! and as to getting the old one out well thats another story.lol alot of people don't have the time or skill to do this so they end up as scrap or on ebay.now i paid alot of money and fitted a stainless steel bearing into mine and its not had a problem in 10 months so if you do give it a go to replace the bearing thats the best way to go.

HOTPOINT CTDOOP CONDENSER DRYER


If you can move just the drum(not the whole tub). If the drum is "loose", the bearings are gone! I really dont know how to change them on this machine, but it is usually pretty difficult.
