Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
Anyone know how to get the drum out of this machine please as I have to replace the bearings which seems straight forward but cannot see how to remove the front to do so
The whole of the tub and drum assembly has to be removed and split down. If you have never done this before, I don't fancy your chances of success. Sorry to be negative

welll its a long job.
first remove the top
then the front control panel.
disconnect any wires connected to the circuit board.
then remove the front panel with the door intact. to do this you must unscrew the the screws in the top and bottom and remove the screws for the door inter lock as well as undue the door gasket from the panel.
Then you got to remove the concrete weights. and pull the pegs in the legs from the drum side.
Then you got to dissconect the drainage at the bottom of the drum from the pump
remove the wires from the solenoid and disconnect the pressure switch from the small plastic tube.
undue the tubing from the soap draw to the drum
remove the clips near the springs.
undue the front metal panel which the board was connected to and remove the drum
if you need anymore help dont be afraid to ask.

hi the code will flash that because of the drum being seized in my opinion the bearings have seized to replace them you will need to remove the front of the machine disconnect all the wires from the drum not the machine there are two plastic pegs holding the suspension legs to the drum which you will need to remove. push the pins in at the backof the pegs and pull out the pegs,sorry you will need too remove the two concrete blocks top/bottom first, then remove the pegs lift out the drum remove the fixings around the drum with a t-30/t-40 bit,then split the drum now comes the tricky bit - AT THE BACK OF THE DRUM IS A 13MM BOLT UNDO THIS ONE TAKE OFF THE FLY WHEEL AND THEN REPLACE THE BOLT HIT THIS BOLT AS HARD AND AS CLEANLY AS YOU CAN WITH A LARGE HAMMER SO THE STAINLESS STEEL DRUM COMES OUT THEN YOU NEED TO GET THE OLD BEARINGS OUT THESE CAN BE A PIG SOMETIMES SO DONT GIVE UP THEN REPLACE WITH NEW ONE'S PUT BACK TOGETHER IN REVERSE ORDER.hope this helps if you can think you can do it it's not as bad as it looks ,good luck

hi to remove bra wire from between drums ? you might try this 1st ? if you diconnect water supply hoses and unplug power supply then remove rear panel from machine you will have access to the large rubber drain hose from outer drum down to discharge pump ? ok hose is held by spring wire clips both ends remove clips then hose you may find bra wire either in hose or close to drum drain if you need ? feel inside drom via drain hole ? or probe with a piece of coat hang wire ? you may even find the mysterious missing sock/ thong / etc when you disconnect the hose too?? any debri has to lay in bottom of outer drum and so a little patience will locate them using this method instead of removing the main front door sealto drum for access to same area also with rear panel off you can check belt tension ? hope this helps/inspires you ? best wishes from uk
