    Perfect

    As described fitted and works need 4 hands ideally to fit but can do on own, test screws in holes first as self tappers

    Quality product.

    The product is fit for purpose & not to hard to fit. Do not leave the bearing change to long as it will damage the spider that it fits to. If this happens then it's a new dryer as the spider is perminantley fixed to the drum & is not obtainerble as a separate spare part & the cost of the complete drum & spider is nearly the same price as a new dryer so check your dryer first before you buy the replacement bearing as it may be a new dryer you require.

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 By Oorie - Glasgow - 22 May 2013
  • 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 By 321qaz - Midlands - 26 April 2010
Answer this question

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. By John - Cambridgeshire - 01 October 2010

    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?

Answer this question

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?

    The closest video we have that covers this type of repair is 'How to replace the shaft and bearings on a tumble dryer'.

Answer this question

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.
