    Purchased this item to try and solve a "bumping" noise with our tumble dryer. I have replaced this part before (back in 2013) so thought the noise was being caused by it being worn again. I also purchased the pads which locate at the front of the drum. Both were very easy to fit and a great opportunity to vacuum out of the fluff inside the machine Unfortunately once fitted the noise was still there! Checked everything else and all appeared fine. Eventually after a lot of head scratching I found the belt layers had started to separate in one small area. Just looking at the belt it was fine but pulling the belt around the small drive shaft on the motor showed up the de-lamination as it went around the tight bend and formed a lump which is what was making the noise.

    I fitted this in conjunction with the plastic bearings are the front of the drum. Now my tumble dryer is nearly silent. Fitting this in a Hotpoint TL61 is a 5 minute job, but I half stripped the whole thing down to replace front bearings at the same time, and cleaned all the fluff out of the internal workings so it took a couple of hours. One of the easier DIY fixes, so if you are in doubt, give it a go. Watch the espares videos, and its really not difficult.

    Product fitted well after a bit of jiggling. Would have been good if it came with some basic instructions for fitting as it's a bit difficult to watch a video and pull the dryer apart at the same time. Doesn't take very long but you will require a rivet gun for the holding plate.

  • Q I replaced this bearing in Nov 2009 and it seems to have gone again after only 15 months. That is a lot shorter life than the previous one. 1 Answer

    I did not lubricate it since it seems to be graphite and should not need it. Could it have been installed incorrectly? The earth strap has now worn away and needs replacing too although I was surprised at the £7 price tag.

      perhaps the surface of the shaft was damaged which caused premature wear

  • Q Creda tumble dryer drum sqeales when rotating in both directions 1 Answer

    It still works, but is very noisy. The sound from the back of the drum varies between a rattling sort of squeak to an ear-splitting squeal - exactly the sound I'd expect from a failed bearing. Is there anything else it might be? And if it is the bearing, how difficult is it to fit - you haven't included this in your "how to" videos.

      Hi Joe F, it does sound like the bearing has gone, and unfortunately replacing bearings is a big job. You'll need to take the back and side panels off the dryer to get access to it. Once you've removed the panels, you should be able to deduce how to get the bearing off. Best of luck!
