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: rear bearing noise when drum rotates

Check the warranty in your owners manual. Your parts should still be in warranty (basket and tub). You will have to pay labor, about $200. Turn it by hand and listen carefully to be sure it isn't something that has gotten between tub and basket.

SOURCE: bearing on front load washing machine needs replacing (Frigidaire

You will need to replace the tub rear shell/bearing assembly (part # 131525500).
To do this, practically the whole machine will need to come apart.
To remove the drive pulley, remove rear cabinet panel. Remove the pulley screw and pull back on the pulley (you may need to giggle it as you pull to remove it).
For the shock pins, grab the open end with a pair of vise-grips. On the "pointy" side of the pin press the tab in with your finger (if you can't push the tab in slide a 9/16" socket onto it) and pull the pin out with the vise-grips (twist back and forth slightly as you pull).

A qualified tech could replace the rear shell/bearing in about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I can certainly give you more help if you need it, let me know.
Good luck!

Miele w310..drum fills with water slowly after a wash.put my head in...cant hear water leaking into it..


Did you open the water tap complete? When it is open all the way already, please close the tap complete and remove the hose and check the filter closest to the tap. Eventually clean it and put the hose back. Don't forget to open the tap again and check you did tighten the hose. (No leakage)

When spinning the drum makes a vibrating/grinding noise/feel to it, would this be bearings gone in the drum "any ideas"


Yes, that's a classic sign of a failed drum bearing. It wi;ll continue to get noisier and may eventually cause a leak from the machine which may cause more expensive repairs if the water and highly corrosive washing solution damages other parts.

The bearing itself is available and can be replaced, but your machine is not designed with bearing replacements in mind. Replacing the bearing involves a near complete strip-down of the machine to completely remove the drum assembly. The outer polypropylene drum will often crack when the old bearing is removed or the new one is refitted and the job is very labour intensive.

The bearing is designed to last the life of the machine, and the machine is only expected to last about four to five years before other parts start to fail as well. If the bearing fails during the warranty then the usual fix is to replace the entire inner and outer drum assembly.

I can't give you a step by step guide, but drum replacement is not cost effective if you have to pay for the repair, and bearing replacement may be worth trying if you know an experienced DIY mechanic and appreciate the risks. The part is relatively cheap, but if the repair fails you've blown money which could have gone towards a new machine. Dismantling to replace the bearing is fairly straightforward and commensense, but on some models the spot welds on the rear of the casing need to be drilled out and they can be replaced with pop-rivets afterwards. A short length of scaffold pole or a large socket can be used to drift out the old bearing and press in the new one. It's also necessary to replace the drive-belt as well, but you can leave that extra cost until you're sure that the bearing replacement has been a success.

Haynes publish a washing machine repair manual; you can either buy it or will often find that it's available at your local public library and it's invaluable if you lack confidence with jobs like these.

If you need to buy another machine, then try to avoid Merloni Group products such as Hotpoint, Indesit, Candy, Ariston. They may be cheap, but they don't last. Brands like LG, Miele, Siemens and AEG don't cost twice as much but they do typically last more than twice as long. Bosch for some reason, definitely aren't as good lately, despite being part of the same group as Siemens. A good quality basic machine will usually serve you far better than a feature-packed Merloni piece of tat.

Bearings on a indest wie 167 washing machine


You can download a user manual for your m/c, but not a repair manual, Go to>
www.indesit .co.uk
Follow the links. To remove the spider, remove the rear panel, remove drum belt, undo drum pulley, you may have to heat the screw holding the pulley,undo all screws that you can see holding the spider to drum rear.
Withdraw spider, you may have to use some force to pull it off.
Fit new bearings or spider, and reassemble..

Leak from Novatronic W310


Bit the bullet and stripped out the covers from the unit so as to observe where the leak was coming from. Ran m/c on a basic quick wash (be careful, exposed live electrical terminals!!!) and noticed that water came from the detergent drawer for a second or two.
Stripped out detergent drawer housing and found that the large discharge pipe underneath was very blocked with black/white residue. Presume that this had been dislodged from the walls of the pipework during the house move.Removed residue and reassembled unit & ran, OK.
Saved myself £100 call out. Give Miele their due though, the documentation suggests that if you habitually wash at a low temperature, which we do, you should occasionally run a 95degree wash. My wife was very surprised when I asked her if she did this.
