We would recommend replacing the tub seal and not using silicone unless there is damage to the tub edge. If this is the case use any glazing or kitchen silicone that sets to a flexible rubber and does not remain soft.

On some drum assemblies they have stopped bolting the front and back together and now weld the two parts to reduce the chance of leaking. Unfortunately if you have a welded drum it is not usually possible to replace the bearings as you cannot dismantled the drum and reseal it.

It suggests Bearings are failing.
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: ES871622
Hi. my hotpoint wdd 960 P (UK) C model has a bearing noise. However, after strip down, my repair guy finds that theres no screw fixings to seperate the inner and outer drum.
According to the hotpoint website, it is possible to to buy the bearings as a replacement item for this specific model.
Can someone please clarify or guide us how to seperate the drums/tub.
Thanks in advance.
