Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

I have a IDL146 washing machine, always the 1400 spin cycle was noisy but now it sounds like a jumbo jet taking off! Are there bearings that can be replaced by a DIY person? If so,please can you tell me the part number I need to buy. Thank you

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
These are the bearings making noise.
http://www.yourspares.co.uk/parts/hotpoint/washing-machines/widl146/parts/ys75567/bearing-kit-HPTC00203002.aspx
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.

SOUNDS LIKE JET PLANE WHEN IT GETS BY RINSE AN SPIN TIME


I assume you mean it sounds like a jet plane when it spins, if so, I suspect a bad tub bearing. Depending on age of the machine, probably too expensive to repair.

Loose drum


If your machine is a front load washer, and it's a few years old a loose drum which is noisy, probably means that the bearings at the rear have collapsed.Water gets through the seal and goodnight bearings and probably the shaft as well......Sorry......Nomess

hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
