    After fitting a new belt the correct tension then showed that the bearings were shot, hard work but very rewarding on completion, washing machine is now like new.

    Bearing swap, hard but worthwhile

    I bought a new set of bearings and a new drum seal. Then I watched the video. Its a great video, though I laughed at the bit where the drum just dropped out when the bolt was undone and then the bearings taped out and back in again in a couple of minutes.. Pure gold. That said the video really is very helpful and the espares parts fit and work. As a result my trusty old washer is back to its old quiet self. As a regular customer of espares, its great to be able to get the parts. I rated ease of fitting as only 3. Thats no reflection on espares, its just not easy if your machine is old and water has got into the bearings. I offer a few comments that may be useful for others treading the path. 1. If you are thinking of changing bearings, do it sooner. Don't delay. The longer you delay, the more corrosion and the harder it gets. 2. When the drum doesn't fall nicely out of the bearing, be careful. If you have to hit the shaft make sure you don't do it directly, ideally a block of hard wood or if really necessary a bit of mild steel. Be careful you dont deform or compress the screwthread in the shaft. Penetrating/easing oil can help but bear in mind its probably the front bearing thats stuck to the shaft. 3. Once the drum is out, the bearings will come out, honest. But it might need more than a gentle tap. Be patient, again penetrating/easing oil may help. Make sure you keep the bearing straight. Don't loose your rag. It will come out eventually. 4. Clean everything very carefully. Get rid of all the corrosion on and around the bearing seats. 5. The best thing to push a bearing in with is the old outer part of the removed bearing. Split the old bearing, remove the centre and balls, clean up the outer and hammer on that. Make sure the bearing goes in straight. You can be confident you won't slip and damage the new bearing. 6. Check the drum shaft for corrosion especially where the seal will run. Clean it up. If water gets through into the bearings they won't last, and you will be back here again before you know it. 7. If your tub has screws all the way round and not tabs you probably won't need the silicon especially if you fit a new seal. Mine is working fine without. Espares; you are missing a trick. You should sell targeted tools like a bearing puller that fits washing machines bearings! Make it easy.

I have tried the method of trying to shock the shaft free with a hammer and block of wood but it will not release. Do you have any suggestions?

    Try placing a block of wood on a solid floor and dropping the drum and rear half of the tub directly on to the wood shaft end first. The weight of the rear tub will usually shock the shaft loose.

    This is shown in the video on the part. It fits on the inside of the tub to stop water reaching the bearings from the shaft of the drum.

Hi can you confirm the bearing kit includes the new seal for the plastic case? Also do you recommend replacing the spider while the thing is in bits or is it not necessary? Thanks

Hi could you advise which size of bearings fits the above washing machine. Thanks Gillian

    The drum on your machine is not repairable as it is welded together and cannot be parted and re sealed after bearing replacement. It is likely to be cheaper to have a fixed price repair with Repaircare than replace the drum unit Stock Number: ES1634552
