    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.

    Having ordered these bearings on Sunday afternoon, i was shocked to be told by email that they will be delivered Monday morning before 12pm. Great service. Not had any need to do any work on the washing machine in the past as i had a service agreement in place. Which is now cancelled I decided to replace the bearings myself. Checked out a few reviews and all said at least a days work!! Started at 17.30ish and had it all completed by 22.30ish. All working great sounds like the first day we brought the machine, why i never done this sort of work myself before i don't know. But anyway wife is pleased the aeroplane noise has gone now when she uses the washing machine.

    Model number of my machine was not listed - quick phone call to the 'help desk' soon sorted the problems out, bearings dispatched and arrived within 48 hrs. Video on this site to guide installation - but I must say it took a little more persuasion to remove my bearings than was intimated in the video - ha! All round - a most excellent service - thank you

  • 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.

  • Q I have a hotpoint WT721P and I need to replace the drum bearings. The problem I have Is trying to separate the drum cases there is no screws just tabs and appears to be glued together . What do I need to do? 1 Answer

      Your machine uses a welded drum and it is not possible to dismantle it and replace the bearings and then re seal it successfully. The only repair possible is a new drum assembly.
