   Washing Machine Drum Bearings

Washing machine bearings tend to fail gradually as the front water seal, or bearing seal, wears and starts to allow water into the actual bearings themselves. This water gets into the actual ball race and corrodes the bearing causing it to fail. In most cases this means that the washing machine is noisy long before the washer bearings actually "collapse" as such but, it is vital that they are replaced before they reach this stage to prevent further damage to the drum or support spider.

Your washing machine will almost certainly have a brass phosphorous bush on the drum shaft and this seals to the front bearing seal, it is imperative that there is no damage to this bush. If it is damaged in any way then the likelihood is that replacement bearings will not last more than a few months after being replaced. Please don't try to use anything on this bush to clean it other than a soft cloth as the metal is very soft and liable to become damaged should you use even a very mild sandpaper on it.

If the bearing bush on the drum support spider is damaged then it will require to be replaced.

When replacing washing machine bearings it is advisable that you also replace the tub seal where possible. Since it is such a time consuming and involved repair there is no point going to all the trouble to replacing the washing machine bearings only to find that a seal that costs just a few pounds causes a leak and you have to strip the washing machine down again to replace it. It is rare that professional engineers will not replace this seal as a matter of course when replacing and washing machine or washer dryer bearings.

Drum bearing replacement on most any washing machine or washer dryer will involve a considerable amount of time and skill as the entire washing machine is usually striped down with the whole tub removed. It is not normally a job that we recommend for DIY repairs unless you have a reasonable amount of skill in such repair work. For that reason we have included a link to find a washing machine repair engineer below, on this page.

Washing machine and washer dryer bearings, like many other spares, are subject to low cost, cheap alternative parts some of which are okay and some of which are just absolute rubbish. In particular it is especially important that you get a good bearing seal to prevent water ingress to the bearings themselves. Please do be aware that these cheap sets are out there and there are a lot of traders that don't care, they are only interested in being the cheapest.

  Changes On Production

There are some models from a number of manufacturers that will have different bearings in the same model number but, the production code will alter. Normally we will note this on the listing where we've found it but as nobody is told what changes are made this can be a challenge at times unless we've sussed it.

  Sealed Tanks

Increasingly we are seeing sealed tanks or drums being used where they are it's a full assembly that you get and, there's no alternative to that.

Even if you can break into it, split the tank and replace the bearings there is no information on what bearings or seal is used to order replacements until you get them out and, hopefully, get that information.
