Hello, W/D here.

Of course it can! If someone can put it together, you can get it apart.

Here's a link to another site where this problem has already been tackled.
http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=22035
One thing I liked about this site is that there was an ad for bearings on the page, and might help you also. Bearings are also available at a source called Motion Industries and WW Grangier. Hotpoint vendors may have a supply on hand as well. All you'll need is the number stamped onto the bearing race to get a suitable replacement. Sales shops that also provide service may tell you that the bearings and tub assemblies have to be sold as a unit, as the bearings may be rubber coated, but this isn't true. You can purchase any bearing required from the sources listed, or by performing a google search with the bearing number and selecting a source near you. A word to the wise; replace both bearings!
Best regards, --W/D--

Can the bearings in a hotpoint hv8b593g be renewed or is it a sealed drum


Don't know this precise machine but all I have worked on previously have not been sealed, the main outer drum normally comes out of the back after removing the drive belt and pully and unhooking from the suspension then separate the plastic outer drum from its two halves remove the inner drum and knock out the bearing, replace all in reverse order.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

Drum Bearings replacement


This is Mogsey above, I have now renewed the bearings in my Zanussi Jetsystem 1600, Model FJD1666W. Had a man in to help. It really is a two man job and I put my back doing this with him. The bearings were much larger than previously encountered. Very! basically you have get out the residue water, release the door seal and (pipe attached) spit the m/c casing, unclip all hoses attached to drum, unclip all drum wiring ,remove belt (note position) remove motor &, lay to one side, withdraw nylon pins from shock absorbers, Look for and remove the little earthing cable set just inside the pulley rim. Carefully release drum/case supporting springs (mark positions top and bottom) and, drop drum/case onto some blocks and lift/pull/take out (really needs two people) (minding other modules). Split drum/case ring of bolts, remove front half (careful here not to damage the heater). take half containing drum outside, lay drum face down and use a drift to hit the socket headed screw securing pulley hard to shake up the taper. Remove this screw (needs good quality allen key) and use wedges to the force off the drum drive pulley. Support drum casing on blocks or put drum on its side, support the drum if on its side and use a heavy drift and hammer to knock through the drum spindle. Careful now to avoid grating hands on the sharp drum holes. With drum now removed place the casing drive end up (ensuring protuding heater is clear of the ground!) put a large bolt (head down) inside the first bearing and rest it on the edge of the inner bearing. Carefully working round the inner bearing edge use a hammer and the bolt head as a drift to knock out the inner (the larger of the two bearings and inturn the drum seal) (note seal postion). Turn over the casing and knock out the outer bearing from inside the drum casing. Clean all and check condition of spider/spindle & renew if damaged. Fit the new outer bearing then the new inner followed by the seal. Dig out the old and renew the (green) O ring seal between the drum casing halves. Replace all, but give a quick test run before replacing casing to ensure belt is positioned correctly. The job would have cost £115 which I think is well worth paying someone to do.
