Does this kit include the drum housing? 2 Answers
The picture seems to show the back plate with spigot and the bearing. I need a replacement housing which is a cast item, and is rivetted to the drum. Does the kit include this, or alternatively can you supply one? CL767031276715300/13
- See answer to first question. Drill out rivets and replace with nuts and bolts
- Hi. No it doesn't, if you need the cast bit it usually requires a new drum as the cast bit is rivited to it. I would look for a new machine!!! Adam
How do I tighten spider arm? 2 Answers
The bearing on my WK44AW is obviously worn, and I will order this, but the rivets securing the spider arm to the drum are also slightly loose. In the past, I have tightened rivets on other machinery by hammering. Would you consider this to be a viable repair?
- remove the top and the back of the tumble drier, using an electric drill and a drill bit drill out the rivets, and replace with short nut and bolts, preferably with a wide head. This worked for me quite well.

You could do this but it will just be very problematic to take it apart again should the need ever arise... Do you not have a tool available to you that will work?
I have a white knight condenser tumble dryer, the bearing has blown and broken a spider arm. Can I buy the spider without the drum?

If I am replacing the bearings do I have to take the whole unit apart or can it done by unscrewing the panel on the rear of the machine.

Hello glencoe. Replacing the bearings will involve taking the whole tub apart - it's a big job. Check out this video to see how it's done on a washing machine; it won't be too dissimilar to what you'll need to do for your dryer: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html
