    I'm not an expert repair person, but once I'd worked out what the issue was the repair was simple. Admittedly, it's not a complicated repair, but it saved a call out and labour charge. Plus, I'm sure the enclosed wine voucher will come in very handy!!!!

    Christmas eve Tumble dryer rear bearing fails. I always use E-spares as they are very quick and items always correct. Part arrives between Christmas and New Year part fitted all good. Reason for 1 star overall rating and quality is nothing to do with E-spares just a very poor design that's why I always buy 2 when ordering to keep one as a spare.

  • Q Are there any "ball" bearings with this? 2 Answers

    This part has worn through on my tuble dryer - question is should there originally have been some ball bearing between the shaft and this part? I can see the sfaft of the drum does have a thinner bit where balls may have sat? Thanks

      Can I just add that the shaft part that looks like it has had ball bearings in, actually looks like that because it has worn a groove in it because it has gone right through the bearing part itself into the casing. So you will need a new shaft also.

  • Q does this fit the square bearing bracket ? 2 Answers

    hello i was wondering if this fits in the square bearing bracket or is it retained by a bolt / rivet in the smaller hole ? thanks Enda

      No. There are two types of bearing, the one pictured and the square version - they are not interchangeable.

      this part fits with great ease, two screws to remove the bearing cover, then one screw through the small hole, take around five minutes to remove and fit.

  • Q Does this replace the carbon type bearing? 2 Answers

    I have worn out my bearing at the rear of my vtd00g. I see the bearing replacement kit and a new belt and the bearing housing, however, where does this bearing go? Thanks

      this is not a replacement for a carbon bearing, this fits on the end of the shaft.

      By ianoliver48 - scottish borders - 26 November 2009

      the bearing goes on the rear back cover there is one hole were it fits through and the shaft on the rear of the drum goes in the bearing hole

  • Q will the shaft need replacing at the same time? 1 Answer

    By AWM - Oban - 04 February 2016

    • A
      If this bearing has worn through the drum shaft is likely to be damaged and require replacing. If your dryer has three screw heads showing in the centre of the drum kit Stock Number: ES546701 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.

      See the video now attached to this part. Try removing the belt of the motor and checking it rotates easily when moved by hand.
