Does the outer drum on a hotpoint WT540

All outer tubs on most Washing Machines these days are sealed.
Therefore you cannot split the tub to get inside and change the bearings. instead you have to change the whole tub assembly as a complete unit. Not an easy job.

Remove bearing from indesit drum how to split drum

all of the newer indesit washing machines have whats called a welded drum meaning they cannot be split open.the thing about this is to change the bearings you have to buy a full drum. best option is to go through the indesit company themselves. aprox cost £100 if under 5 years and £140 if over 5years. hope this helps

Noise in drum sound like its gonna blow up

Hotpoint WT540 Bearing Change. I have got the drum out but I am having problems spliting the drum. Is it bonded or are there any tricks I can use to split the drum without destroying it

If there are no visible screws or other obvious means of the 2 drum halves being joined together, then it is not possible to change the bearings, as it is a one piece drum.
Current models are one piece, earlier models had screws securing the drum halves together,
Hope this helps..

How do you remove the drum?

well either pull it out with pliers from inside or you will have to split the drum cover.
You will have to remove motor hoses etc. and take out the whole drum housing.
Split it and pull wire out. If you go to this length please clean heating ellement too thna.

Not difficult just a lot of time..

Good luck

Split in plastic bowl

yes it is replaceable any good washing machine parts shop will have them cheaper to buy a second hand one though but you can buy straight from the manufacturers but that will more than likely come fully built with the inner drum in it which will make it easier for you to fit m8 if you dont have the phone number than you can find all manufacturers in the argos book
