Replacing a drum on a washing machine: Hotpoint Indesit Ariston Whirlpool

by / Friday, 21 May 2021 / Published in Drum & Bearings, Repair Guides, Washing machines

Replacing a drum on a washing machine is not as complicated as you might think.
The big problem arises with the cost of the drums because manufacturers are constantly using sealed washing machine drums. You are unable to replace the bearings or the spider which is totally unfair on the consumer.

In this video, I show you how to replace a washing machine drum this video can be used on Hotpoint Indesit Ariston and whirlpool manufactured machines. The process is very similar on every type of machine with the exception of some machines that have front panels that come off which makes life a little bit easier.

The big trick is to find a drum that fits your machine at an affordable price. A lot of manufacturers will use the same drum in a range of machines,  using the model number of your washing machine you will be able to identify the part number for the drum.

when you have this you can look for second-hand washing machines with electrical faults that use the same drum as on your machine you can find a second-hand washing machine as little as £20 with faulty electrics but the drum is in good condition.

example in this video I am working on a Hotpoint WMFUG1063PUK the drum for this machine is part number C00286071

this drum fits all these machines
