Anyone replaced the drum bearings on a washing machine?

, but don't twot it really hard in 1 spot or it will jam.

 

I am curious as to exactly what "Twot it really hard" involves?   @ProDave  Order the parts, You know you want to!   Then we can start a forum sweepstake: "How many days will Mrs ProDave be unable to use her washing machine" 1 day / 2 Days / 3 days / 4 days / More?.

How you get on with this @ProDave?

 

I've always used impact sockets the same size as the relevant bearing race to drift bearings in or out meself, seems to work

I was "told" to abandon it.

 

We had been using it still limiting the spin speed.  Then we went away on holiday for a couple of days to find it had flooded the kitchen (WM door was open, machine was turned off and we came back to the drum full or water and had been overflowing out of the open door)

 

Since then stuff keeps coming out dirty.

 

So today we collected a new cheap machine and I will strip the old one, flog all the parts on ebay, and take the carcass to the tip recycling centre.

That will be because the fill valve is failing and letting in water, its been doing it for some time, but because you use the machine often you would not notice.
