Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
These are the bearings making noise.
However.. this is not a task the average mechanic will be able to accomplish. It involves complete disassembly of the cabinet, the removal of the outer tub front cover and finally removal of the inner tub.
Additional issues that can be encounterd are:
1. Establishing a proper "Tub balance" post bearing / seal change
2. Outer tub seal leaking in the front of the machine.
3. Drive belt damage
4. Tub spider damage if the bearing is very difficult to remove.
This is one of those tasks that has resonably priced spare parts for the initial problem but, can very easily result in the need for several other spares and added expenses.
If your going to DIY just understand what your getting into and take your time. Make sure to clean the front outer tub seal quite well as it will leak if there is even a hint of debris on the seal post repair.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
