first time ever my zanussi washing machine drum bearings have failed after only 4 years and very light use. just two people using it. my last machines lasted over ten years with just the pump needing changes now and again. i have read that the main brands have made it financially not viable to repair by putting the bearings in a sealed drum. thanks. does anyone know of a brand that hasnt done this as i wont be buying a zanussi again. ive heard that one company owns about 20 brands so gonna be a hard search i guess.
