Will this part fit my appliance? [?]


If your tumble dryer's drum shaft has worn out, there are two tell-tale signs: the drum will be making clanging noises when the machine is running, and the drum will be moving around inside the cavity of your dryer. Replace a worn out drum shaft pin with this spare from Hotpoint to restore your dryer to working order.

Genuine spare part for select Ariston, Creda, Crusader, Hotpoint, Indesit, Jackson and Proline tumble dryers. Prior to ordering, please check the list of appliances to ensure this is the right part for you.

    The drum shaft is easy to replace as is the bearing. The belt is another matter. I used a piece of 22mm copper tube. Place the tube over the motor spindle then through the belt and lever it level with the spindle rotate the drum until the belt is over the spindle withdraw the tube. Rotate the drum to ensure the belt is positioned correctly.

    Great part for our hotpoint dryer. Fitted this at the same time as the new bearing. The dryers shaft was held in with 3 torx screws and I used a ratchet with a torex bit to undo them as they were well dogged up.. Easy to fit and our machine now works like a dream, very pleased.

  • Q What size of tap is required to refix the shaft? 2 Answers

      The screws you remove are self tapping, so no tap is required.

      Hi there, the screws you need are Torx head, T25 - so the tap would correspond to this.

  • Q does the shaft have a hole in for a split pin? 2 Answers

    the holes on the plate are obvious to secure one end of the drum shaft, but does the pointy end of the shaft have a hole across the shaft to allow the fitment of a split pin? This is for a replacement of a Creda Excel T632CW Condenser Dryer drum shaft.

      A split pin can be used, but there is a special "S" shaped pin that goes in this cross drill hole. Always use a washer between bearing and split pin/"S" pin.

      yes this shaft is drilled to accept a pin, use the pin that is in the old shaft, not a split pin, the pin is just a single, easy to fit.

  • Q Hi, i have a hotpoint dryer TVM562P which has the pre-attached drum shaft, can this be removed so i can purchase the new fitting kit? 1 Answer

      We believe that you can carefully drill out the fixings to the drum shaft and fit a kit like Stock Number: ES546701. We would welcome your feedback to confirm this is possible.

  • Q Will this fit a drum with a riveted mounting plate? 1 Answer

    Will the old mounting plate be able to be removed by drilling out the old rivets and fitting this in its place?
