Not an easy job M8 some of the AEG's come as the back half of the drum complete with the drum support and both bearings in place. If not then it's still a drum out job, then it's a matter of getting the drum support off of the back of the inner drum and then getting the bearings out. Without a bearing puller it's usually easier to knock them out with a hammer and a chissel or drift.

Ditch it and buy a Miele instead

Would buy a new one but the moneys a bit tight at the mo. Is there a proper way to take the drum out? I have disconnected all the pipes and wires so all thatís left are two shock absorbers on the bottom and two massive springs at the top of the drum. Any idea what to release first? Any help be great.

Get me the pnc (product number) & I will see if you can buy the bearing on its own. Hopefully if I remember I will ask one of the engineers how or if the bearing can be changed on it own.

That's the model no. above & not the pnc number (product no.)

It usually starts with a 9.
If you look at the rating plate (which is sticky label) Should also hold/show model number, serial number & the product number. You should find the label once you open the door & look on the cab by the drum rubber seal. Otherwise it should be on the back of the machine.

The product number will help me find the exact part bearing.
There is a risk of variation in just the model number.

Bearing kit G20/16 Part No. 407134869/4 = 26.53 pounds.

Now the parts order diagrams gives a picture of the inner components. The only problem is that its not very clear on whether or not the rear drum bearing section actually comes with the bearing kit mentioned above.
Now the rear drum cost around 127.00 pounds, please note all prices need to have vat added. These are the retail prices.

Also the spindle (spyder pully)this is where the belt is fitted to can be purchased separately but with the rear drum cost about 157pounds.

But the main problem is that you need to strip the machine down & split the rear drum section to remove the bearing. My engineers tell me that is not an easy job to remove the bearing & if you even get a small scratch on the new bearing (inner ball race) then say good bye to your machine again. Like wise with the bearing seal, ifs that not seated correctly or damaged during assembly then it will let water seep through & eventually speed up the process of wearing the new bearing out.

My own thoughts are that if you have let the machine run for some time with the damaged bearing that would also damage the spindle. So that will need replacing as well. You may as well strip it down & see if there is any play in the spindle to bearing.

By all means have a go at it, bearing kit should cost under 30 pounds. If it fails again then its time for a new machine. Ideally a new spindle & rear drum section complete with already fitted bearing & seal would be great but its not cheap & not worth it.

Try other suppliers for parts etc. Sometimes the retail prices are cheaper than what I have quoted.

Interestingly......
I ditched a 3 year old AEG washing machine last year, which had a main bearing failure and was "not economical to repair"

I also bought an Meile, and it is in a class of its own.

Some snippets that I read last year about Miele machines that makes them quite unique: -

The machines are built around heavy a metal frame; they do not carry a lump of concrete for ballast like most (all?) other machines do.

They have a Stainless Steel outer drum which is expected to last for 20+ years. Most machines have a plastic outer drum which eventually breaks, or a steel one, which eventually rusts and leaks

As already said, most of them carry a 10 year warranty!!!

Their main drum bearings are made to the same specification as a car wheel bearing.

My comments: -

The door opens with an absolutely fantastic "CLICK" :-)

They are almost silent in operation. I have stood in my kitchen several times thinking "where is that water leaking from? - Oh the washing machine is on"

They dont shake themselves accross the floor.
