    Easy to purchase, quick delivery & good value. Slightly tricky to fit, but anyone with a good screwdriver & a basic knowledge can fit this. The dryer is now so quiet, its like having a new one!

    The rear bearings on my White Knight tumble dryer were banging on every cycle - and the drum 'lifted' up and down when manually moved at the front - a sure sign of bearing failure. I ordered a new dryer bearing kit and removed the drum - (take careful note of where the connections on the heater and terminal block go!) - then the drum complete with back panel can be removed. Unfortunately, the spider plate on the drum had worked loose on the rivets - which normally means a new drum as well, which was quite expensive for an old machine. I decided to drill out these rivets, using a 6mm drill, and replace them with round headed nuts and bolts (roofing bolts from B&Q). I decided to use these as I thought hexagonal bolt heads might catch the clothes inside the drum. This worked perfectly; my machine now sounds like new after replacing the bearing supplied by espares. The drum front plastic pfte slider bearings didn't need replacing on my machine - but these are really cheap to buy if you want to go the whole hog. The instructions for replacing the bearings are included with the kit.

  • Q 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

      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

  • Q 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?
