    Great quality fittings

    The drum in my Hotpoint WT960P washing machine was not in any way loose, but was noisy (deafening) in operation. It made a grinding noise so despite no movement between tub and drum, the bearing/s were clearly worn. The three service parts are of excellent quality and fit for the replacement task. I also purchased a new drum seal as recommended in the “how to” video. I could not have undertaken this task without the video – it is extremely good. My machine is different to the one in the video but to understand the sequence of disassembly was essential. For removal of the retaining bands on the door seal I watched the video for these items; again, essential viewing for me. Before starting I watched the video and made a list of the disassembly sequence so I could make a reverse list when it came to putting it all back together. As part of the process I took lots of photos, as recommended: essential. Getting the drum shaft out of the old bearings and subsequent removal of the old bearings was hard work; as was re-fitting the new bearings. Tapping the shaft after removal of the pulley wheel did nothing, nor did a few hefty whacks with a club hammer (I did use a piece of wood to protect the shaft!). I eventually removed the eighteen screws holding the two halves of the tub together, allowed some penetrating oil to soak in around the bearing and shaft, then took the front end away and holding the back of the tub, banged the end of the shaft onto a timber placed on the garage floor. That did it. I tried using a cold chisel to remove the back bearing as shown in the video but this was clearly going to damage the housing. A socket extension rod was used instead and this worked without damage, although a very laborious exercise. The front seal would not come out easily, but was coaxed by fitting a screwdriver blade under the top lip and tapping the end with a mallet to crush part of the seal sides to release some of the friction. A pull with a mole wrench then got it out. Removal of the front bearing was a repeat of the process for the removal of the back bearing, again using penetrating oil although I’m not sure what benefit that really had. A good clean with emery cloth replaced the shine on the shaft and bearing housing. Fitting the new bearings was also a lengthy task but instead of tapping a bolt and then a cold chisel around the bearing edges, I used the old bearings placed over the new and tapped the edges of those until everything was flush. Three days later (I left 24 hours for the silicone on the tub gasket to set) and after following my re-assembly sequence and photos, I got everything back together again. Excellent parts service and brilliant “how to” videos from espares.

    Not easy but doable and a great result

    The bearings themselves are excellent, immediately became apparent just how bad the old ones were. The job took me 8 hours over 2 days but would definitely be quicker a second time plus I took the chance to clean all other bits and bobs. Follow the video on eSpares! It doesn't cover drier elements but that was just a housing and some pipe work to disconnect. Tips from me: 1 take lots of pictures, from different angles; 2 put screws under labelled masking tape in the order in which disconnected, so you can reverse the process after; 3 label disconnected hoses (especially for a washer/drier) and electrical connectors; 4 the centre spindle will be tight but protect it with a block of wood before taking a hammer to it - I had to file back a corner of mine for the drive wheel to fit back on; 5 don't expect the bearings to come out (or new ones in) as easily as the video! It took 30 minutes of brute force to get the old ones out. Use an appropriately sized socket if possible to punch out evenly. I used some silicone spray from my car tools to get the new bearings in; 6 ensure the drive wheel is absolutely tightly done up so that the wheel turns true in relation to the drum casing; 7 the drive belt is really hard to get back on. I tried a number of ways but couldn't do it on my own, in the end I had my wife turning the drum while I was winding the belt onto the drum wheel. Don't be put off if that sounds a lot. Maybe you'll be better or your machine easier. It was hard and I'm tired out but I'm really glad I did it and compared to the jet engine previously howling in my utility room, this 9 year old machine is now silent.

Hi can you confirm the bearing kit includes the new seal for the plastic case? Also do you recommend replacing the spider while the thing is in bits or is it not necessary? Thanks

    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: ES1634552
