I keep getting conflicting info on whether the Ariston margharita a1635 washing machine has a welded drum or not.

I have half a mind to trash the thing and buy a new bosch, but first I would like to know whether it is feasible to attempt a bearing replacement. As there are no ariston manuals anywhere to be seen on the web I cannot confirm if it is possible to get at the bearings, a quick look shows no obvious way of splitting the outer drum like you can with a hotpoint or most others.

so if anyone has any experience of repairing that model, please tell me what you know.

The tank is a sealed metal tank. But you can do the bearings from the back on the drum spider theres a 4 legged bar at the rear that unbolts in each corner total 8 bolts then remove the centre pully and it lifts of. Then drift out bearings from cross piece.
