firstly the rubber seal needs to come out, then i usually use an old socket and long extension bar and knock them out with a large hammer. fitting is the opposite of removal. a word of caution though if the centre of the bearing is hit it can damage them. you may be best searching the site for an engineer in your area as it could turn costly if you get it wrong.

hope this helps

Make a lot of nosie

Hi mervyn2011
Sounds like you have a bearing problem or drum roller/slide problems.
You will need to take the dryer apart to determine which problem it is.
For an owners manual go to the following webpage

that dryer is obviously a vented dryer. the problem you are having is that the drum itself is falling back off the front bearing plate(i have actualy got a call in the morning for the same fault) the solution is to remove the back panel from the machine and place a washer about 4mm thick between the drum and rear panel on the shaft. this will solve your problem.

WD12 Indesit washer/dryer

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: Timer- If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. Water supply problem- If water doesn't enter the machine when you start the process- check water entrance pipe, myaybe it was bend (if you have there a tap - see it is open). Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it doesn't get power, it seems that the problem is with the timer unit. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.
