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?

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
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?
QI have a White Knight gas tumble drier and the drum will not turn. It is not the drive belt but the drum seems to have dropped and is rubbing underneath. Could this be the front or small bearings within the drum?1 Answer
The machine is quite old and is a BG431/1

Hi Trev, it sounds as if it may be the springs or drum supports which hold the drum in place that have gone. The fact that the drum is not suspended inside the dryer suggests that the components that were suspending it have failed.
