My WM has become very noisy and I've identified the cause as the bearings.
I've been looking in to getting parts and any advice on changing them but although I can find parts on-line, I can't seem to find a schematic for the WM or any advice on stripping it down to replace the parts.
From the Hotpoint site, the only part that is available is the complete rear half of the drum although I can get original bearings and seals from another retailer.
Any advice on dismantling, parts/tools required would be very gratefully received!
