    I have had my machine for about 8 years and it was starting to sound like a Sherman tank. We decided to dump it but I thought it might be worth having a go at changing the bearings. I was doubtful as to whether I could do it but what the heck, if it didn't work out I would dump it any way. I noticed that there was a video on the website site and the job didn't seem too onerous. I got the job done, it didn't take too long and the machine runs really well now. Well worth the effort - thanks.

    This is quite a big job and it didnt help that the old bearings had become seized and stuck in the drum/on the shaft, but with a lot of persaverance they came apart. Best say due to seized bearings the job was a 4 to 6 hour one as I had to clean up the shaft and threads etc.

      The drum on your machine is not repairable as it is welded together and cannot be parted and re sealed after bearing replacement. It is likely to be cheaper to have a fixed price repair with Repaircare than replace the drum unit Stock Number: ES1087441

  • Q Hot point Wdd960 bearings 1 Answer

    I am planning to replace the bearings in the machine myself. I wanted to confirm that it can be done on this model. I know which bearing kit is required but will there be any other parts that I could or should replace as I am doing this?

      It is advisable to also replace the seals on the drum shaft and the tub seal to prevent leaks and bearing failure.

      if it only occurs when the drain pump is running check the filter for coins and debris. Also check if the weights fixed to the drum are loose by shaking the drum when the top is off (remember to unplug first).

      It sounds like you may have faulty bearings. Check for any play or movement of the inner drum at the front edge next to the seal. Spin the drum by hand to confirm worn bearings. If this is the case your machine has a welded drum and would require Stock Number: ES871622 to repair it.

      Many Hotpoints like the WMF740KUK use a welded drum assembly. It is not possible to replace the bearings on these and you will need a complete drum. Contact REpaircare for a fixed price repair that can be cheaper than the cost of the new drum.
