Question about Hotpoint WMA32 Front Load Washer
The bearings on the drum are damaged and I think the drum spider is damaged as well. Is this a relative straight forward job to repair myself if I buy Drum rear half with bearing kit already fitted or is it beyond ecomonical repair. Machine 5 years old.
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
This machine in three years ago in the UK cost 280 pounds
You probably can buy it today for half the money from then!
I suggest a new one and not that model which had a lot of problems! Speed Queen has the best warranty.And does 8 loads a week for 25 years.
They start at about $549 in the States!
Not sure if they sell it in the UK????
Here is a good service that I recommend to my customers,

You are describing shot bearings.
It should be perfectly possible to replace the bearings if you are able to press them out of the spider.
The usual fix is to obtain a replacement spider, your local domestic appliance repair shop should be able to supply an exchange unit.
If you attempt the repair you should check that the drum has not damaged the water heaters as it may have been these that it was grinding on.
