When you notice the noise and hum in the washing machine, the bearing has already begun to wear out. Repair in this case is necessary, and it is desirable to conduct it as quickly as possible. Untimely replacement of the bearing in a Hotpoint-Ariston washing machine entails damage to the shaft and other parts of the AGR.
We will tell you how to independently dismantle the car, change the broken parts and return the previous working capacity.

How to determine the breakdown
It is believed that the service life of bearings is estimated at 6-10 years. However, there are situations that accelerate wear and tear. Loss of elasticity and tightness of the stuffing box leads to water entering the bearing, washing away the grease.
If you often overload the CMC drum with linen, then know that you shorten the life of the bearing.
Factory marriage is the minimum percentage of all failures.
The louder the noise and the stronger the vibration when squeezing, the stronger the wear. If you rotate the drum by hand, and it will rotate non-uniformly - then the parts are almost worn out.
The same applies to the appearance of play. Shake the drum back and forth. If he drifts away from the tank - this is the backlash, which speaks of the need for repair.
Let's figure out how to independently replace the drum bearing in the Ariston washing machine.
Preparation for repair
Gather the tools that will come in handy:
- screwdrivers (flat, cross);
- a hammer;
- puller (if any);
- Allen keys;
- glue, sealant.
Also you will need new oil seals and bearings for replacement. These two parts need to be changed at the same time, even if one of them is less worn out. This is economically viable, because without doing this, you will again repair the machine again in a while.
Find out how much the bearing costs on the washing machine Ariston, you can in any online store. Select new items you can by brand and model of the stylalki. Look at the markings on old bearings, if the inscriptions are clearly visible.
Now, prepare the machine. Disconnect it from the network. Look around, is there enough space for work and complete disassembly SM. Perhaps it's better to move into the garage.
Prepare a container to collect water. Close the inlet valve and disconnect the intake hose from the housing. Drain the water.
Then go to the front wall of the SM. Below you will see a small hatch on the latches. Remove the lid, replace the container and unscrew the drain filter. Draining the water, proceed to the next steps.
Step by step execution of works
We will tell you how to change the bearing in the washing machine Ariston. Disassembly SM will be identical for Hotpoint Ariston Aqualtis, Hotpoint Ariston ARSL 105, Ariston Margarita 2000 and other models.
Covers and panels
Take the Phillips screwdriver. Go around the stylalko, sticking to the back wall. Remove the two screws that secure the top cover. Then slide it forward and remove it from the body.
Proceed to the back panel. Unscrew the screws on the perimeter, set the cover aside. At the same time, remove the drive belt by turning the pulley by hand, pull it toward you.
Approach the front of the stylalki. Pull out the dispenser for detergents: pull the tray toward you by pressing the retainer in the center; Take it out and put it aside. Behind him are a few bolts, another 1-2 bolts from the opposite side of the panel. Unscrew them, unfasten the plastic latches.
Now the panel keeps only on the wires - you can throw it up the shell. But if you decide to disconnect, it is better to immediately take a picture of the location of the connectors for proper connection.
It is necessary to remove from the top of the tank anything that might prevent it from being pulled out. It:
- Powder-collector. Loosen the pipe clamp leading from the hopper to the tank. Remove the branch pipe. Disconnect the input valve contacts and unscrew the fixing screws. Remove the valve with the powder collector.
- Counterweight. Unscrew the bolts securing the upper counterweight and remove it.
- Pressostat. Disconnect the pressure switch hose that is attached to the tank, otherwise it may tear during dismantling.
Open the hatch door. Bend off the sealing rubber, pierce the screw with a screwdriver and pull it off.
Unfasten the wiring of the manhole lock (UBL) by running your hand over the body. Pre-loosen the two mounting bolts.
If you are afraid of damaging the door glass, we advise you to remove it immediately. To do this, unscrew the screws that secure the hinges of the door, set it aside.
It remains to unscrew the screws around the perimeter of the front panel and remove it. Now unscrew the bolts of the lower counterweight to remove it.
Disconnect the wiring from the electric motor at the bottom of the tank. Unscrew the bolts (three to four pieces), slide the engine forward first, then pull it back and remove it from the body.
Disconnect the heater wiring. The heater itself should not be dismantled. If you damage its sealing rubber, then you have to completely change everything.
Also, if the wiring is attached around the perimeter of the tank, snap the clamps and cut off the wires to the side.
The tank is fixed only on shock absorbers and hanging hooks. Unscrew the screws of the shock absorber, remove the tank from the hooks and pull out the tank.
The washing machine you disassembled. Now you need to get to the bearings.
Place the tank on a flat surface.
At once it is necessary to remove a pulley - take a wooden lath and lock a wheel of a pulley that it did not rotate. Use the key to unscrew the bolt in the center; if it does not lend itself, sprinkle it with WD-40.
After removing the pulley, proceed to disassemble the tank. Unscrew bolts along its perimeter, unclasp the latches and remove the upper part.
To separate the tank from the drum, you need to hit the hub several times, after which the drum will drop out.
Now let's see how to replace the bearing on the washing machine Ariston.
You need to start with an external bearing. Before removing it, turn the tank half upside down. Install the bit on the outer cage of the part and hit the hammer several times.
Important! You need to beat evenly on the outer cage. If you damage and knock out the inside, then the outer ring will then be difficult or impossible to remove.
If you have a puller, use it. The inner bearing is also removed.
Prepare a seat. After sprinkling it with WD-40, wait until the dirt gets wet, peel and lubricate with grease.
Install the new part in the socket. Now attach the bolt to its outer cage and, evenly tapping the hammer, drive the bearing into place.
Top of the lubricated oil seal.
Before installing the drum, be sure to clean the bushing against rust and scale. For better sealing, apply sealant to the edges of the tank, fix them with bolts. Assemble the machine in reverse order.
