    Wow! What an easy way to save on expensive repairs or having to buy a replacement tumble drier because yours has died on you. This service kit breathes new life into dead machines if the main bearing gives up the ghost. This could have been a bit tricky to fit but then I realised that e-spares also provide a YouTube video that even idiots like me could follow. Nice one guys!

    Hotpoint wanted nearly as much for a repair as a new machine would have cost, so our dryer was headed for the scrap heap. Instead, after seeing the excellent video here, I fitted a new shaft. Simple, if a little time consuming as a first timer. Only thing to note is there are a couple of screws on the side panel that the vid doesn't show (I have the same model and there was one behind the kickboard and one on the bottom side of the unit).

    Purchased hoping to save a lot of money by not having to purchase a new tumble dryer. Fitted in about 2 hrs due to not having the correct Tork driver set otherwise would have been a lot quicker. Dryer now working better than ever. Have used Espares before and will continue to use again. Tutorials on the website are fantastic and very easy to follow.

  • Q Shaft and bearing replacement for Indesit IDC85 1 Answer

    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

      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.
