    Ordered the repair kit and it arrived the following day. The kit was simplicity itself to affix to the drum of my Indesit dryer. There were brief but clear instructions contained in the pack but I referenced the handy instructional videos available on the espares site to see how someone else carried out the fix. Happily all is well and the dryer is working as well as it ever did. Thank you.

    I have never repaired a domestic appliance in my life but thanks to the support of e spares it was easy. The best part was I saved about the cost of a new one by repairing my Tumble Dryer instead of replacing it. The part just fitted there was no need to alter it of bodge it.

  • 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.

      If your dryer has three screw heads showing in the centre of the drum this kit is suitable. If there are no screws showing you will require a kit specifically for the riveted type drum shafts Stock Number: ES1672507 order the correct type for your dryer.

  • Q belt fitting on indesit is70c condenser tumble dryer 1 Answer

    Having now refurbished the above dryer with parts provided by yourselves everything has gone to plan.The final task was to replace the damaged jockey wheel pulley and fit the belt.This proved to be a terrible task.To fit the original belt I had to move the drum closer to the motor but when fitted it was too slack and turning the motor did not turn the drum.I assumed the belt had stretched as it was cracked anyway so I have ordered a replacement.The jockey pulley does not have a tensioner so fitting a new belt would seem to be impossible.Most videos I have looked at the belt is connected from drum to motor others using a jockey pulley have a tensioner.Is there some clever way to fit this belt.

      We do not recognise your model but suspect you may have a 'new style' shaft as shown in our additional video. See Stock Number: ES1672507
