    Sorry guys, another question! Our washing machine - and Indesit model BWE91484XSUK has started making a horrible noise when spinning (or just rotating in general). Easy fix - must be the bearing!

    But no, it doesn't appear to have a bearing (as we know it Jim!)

    This is the parts list with exploded diagrams -

    Can someone else have a look and see if I am missing something! I can only assume the "bearing" is in the very front between the plastic outer and metal drum? Or am I missing something.

    If it's a new drum that's £150+, so a new washing machine!

    Cheers

    Peter

    The bearing will be at the back. It might be that Indesit don't supply a bearing kit but would say you have to replace the whole drum !
    If I recall one of our previous machines was an Indesit and that had a cast ally spider mounted across the back of the outer drum. This cracked and caused the drum to drop (like a worn bearing) causing rubbing of the inner drum to the outer. Fixed it a couple of times but wife got fed up being without machine so got replaced (the machine not the wife!)
    It should be possible to look in back to see whats what.
    Youtube for "Indesit drum bearing replacement" ?

    If its like our AEG then its all embedded in the drum and you can't split it. Its a whole new drum, i replaced ours not so long back, 2 months later the control board went pop so its gone to washing machine heaven!

    We've just had our whole drum assembly replaced in our Indeset under warranty as the bearing went. If they do it under warranty then I'd say it's all in one.

    Looks like that indecent tub can be split then, our AEG was plastic welded all round.
     
  8. Do what I do, chuck it outside and leave it for the scrap man then nip down to curry's and buy a new one for 230 odd quid fit it with new guarantee, job done.

    You get a 10 year warranty on Miele, but starting at seven hundred odd quid I'd be a bit miffed if it needed warrantying. :ashamed:

    If you go to the effort of changing the bearing also replace the spider / stub shaft, the shaft is always knackered where the seal rides, without replacing it the new bearing is going to have a very short life.
    I did one several years ago, it's loads of work on an old machine and I wouldn't hurry to do it again.
