    only problem is finding which of the three possible kits you require,so after stripping tub out[good video on e-spares site]and you've measured dia[inner and outer]of bearings you can work out which kit is req.would only recommend doing this job if you are competant with drifts and a hammer?or you have access to a press to insert the bearings!!

    Washing machine failed with totally shattered bearings. Espares advised which part was needed and arrived exactly when they said it would (and I mean exactly... even in the bad weather! !!!!) Fitting was easy after watching the very helpfull videos... sorted and now we have a washing machine that doesnt sound like a plane at takeoff.

  • Q Bearing size for Hotpoint 1 Answer

    I would like to know what size bearings I need for a Hoptpoint Aqualtis AQXXL129I? I cant find this information anywhere?

      The reason why you cannot find this information is due to this drum being a one piece bonded drum and cannot be dismantled to replace bearings. The drum part number is Stock Number: ES1087441

  • Q Just ordered replacement bearing and drun seal for our Hotpoint WD860G. Once the drier 'snail' housing is unscrewed does it just pull out of the aperture it fits into on top of the drum? Don't want to break it! 1 Answer

      Main support for the drum is the shockers and springs, when removed and the motor detached it should just pull out as per the online video

  • Q Do i need any specialist tools to replace the bearings? Also how can i tell if i need 30mm or 35mm bearings? Thanks. 1 Answer

      You don't need much in the way of specialist tools but a 200mm flexible drive is handy as a screwdriver extension which allows you to reach akward places. Most of the screw heads are TX type (star point) so a set of these screwdriver bits is essential. Once you have separated the outer plastic drum you will need a good support on which to rest the rear half while you drive out the inner drum and shaft downwards. You may need a 4lb hammer and have to hit the shaft end directly and heavily instead of protecting it with a piece of wood. This can close the threaded hole which the large pulley wheel is attached to and will require rethreading using an 8mm tap - second cut, which refers to the front end taper on the tap. The bearings and water seal can be driven out with a piece of metal tube or solid bar but keep it fairly long to avoid hitting your hands as the bearings fall out and make sure that you drive the bearings out evenly and replace them in a similar way making sure that they drive home perpendicularly - a flat piece of metal almost the size of the bearing outer is just the job for tapping the new bearings in and a hollow drift the same size as the recess in the water seal is also needed to avoid damaging it. With regard to the 30mm or 35mm bearing size query this set has one of each which the picture shows and the best way to determine any requirement like this is to use the manufacturers website to determine exact part numbers for any appliance parts and then find a supplier such as E pares who makes reference to the same part numbers. You will notice that the outer plastic wash drum when separated has a seal which is also glued and after you have cleaned this old glue away and replaced the seal a silicon sealant can be applied before the two halves are put back together. If the drum shaft is slightly rusty a fine emery paper can be used to restore its smoothness and hence ensuring the water seal will work. If it is badly rusted then you will need to fit a new spider which is part of that shaft assembly. Good luck.

  • Q Bearing Kit 1 Answer

    My washing machine is making a noise when turning the drum is it a bearing kit i need? Thanks

      Hi there. Noises during drum rotation will most likely be caused by one of two things. It'll be either something stuck inside the drum tub - bra wiring is a common thing to get lodged in there - or it'll be damaged bearings. You're gonna hope it's not the bearings, because these are a big job to replace. The first thing to check (after unplugging the machine!) is for lodged clothing or bra wiring. To do this, remove the element from its housing below the drum, and use a torch to look inside, as well as something like a straightened clothes hanger to poke around inside. After that, do the same for the sump hose. You can also look inside the drum, see if any of that elusive bra wiring is poking out of the holes. If after all that you can't find anything, or the machine is still making noises, you'll need to replace the bearings. Check out this video for help on how to remove the element and sump hose, as well as replacing the bearings:
