    Replaced shaft and bearing on a dryer.

    Nice and easy fix. Received quickly with no fuss. Plenty of visual help if required too.

    Fixed the broken bearing

    The kit is supplied with 2 alternative bearings for the rear shaft, but does not include the front drum edge bearing parts . The time consuming bit was taking enough of the case apart to fit the new parts. In my case the shaft from the drum had broken. Well worth the effort and I now have a smooth running machine. There is an excellent video on the espares site to act as a general guide.

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

    There is now a kit specifically for the riveted type drum shafts Stock Number: ES1672507 order the correct type for your dryer.

  • 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 By Richard Garland - Gtr Manchester - 14 November 2014

    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.
