    A bit fiddly to fit but the dryer has a new lease of life as previous bearing had totally worn out. Could have done with the kit including the seals and bushes for the drum.

    Had done this job on prev drier, so happy to tackle. For anyone not having done espares video is spot on. However on newer indesit rear bearing is pressed onto drum whereas before torx screwed. I was lucky I didn't need to fit this part. It would probably straight forward to remove rivetting if you needed to

  • Q Shaft and bearing replacement for Indesit IDC85 3 Answers

    Hi. This kit is listed as not compatible with the Indesit IDC85, and I see that there are no screws inside the drum for the drum shaft. Can this model still be fixed using the method described in the video, and is there a compatible kit or do individual components need to be ordered. Many thanks

      I angle ground out the welded shaft and fitted the new shaft kit on top of the old one - using holes around the welded section. Works so far. Would advise gloves when doing work on tumble dryers - as my hands look like I have been arm wrestling Freddie Kruger

      We believe you can carefully drill out the 'riveting' on the shaft and screw the new kit on. It is worth trying this as even if it is unsuccessful you will not have lost anything as at the moment you require a new drum complete.

      This can be used on any Hotpoint or Indesit dryer drum shaft. There is another kit specifically for riveted type shaft kits but the drum can also be easily drilled to accept this kit as well.
