Not usually, I used to work as an engineer and hated main bearing jobs,
(I am presuming you mean the main drum bearings)?
There are a lot of variations, some require the whole drum removing,
some require the backplate removing, and a few other variations of the
above. Some bearings come complete with the spider, others are in kits,
all will need a seal to prevent water getting into the new bearings, but
the spiders usually have them built in, and if the seal is not fitted
spot on, it will leak an ruin the new bearings.
Thanks - it will almost certainly not be worth paying the circa ฃ180 to have
the job done professionally. This on a washing machine that has not been
heavily used and is only just over 2 years old! Indesit (and allied names)
goes firmly on my list of makes to avoid. My brief Internet search leads me
to believe on the basis of this experience I am far from alone in believing
their products are crap. Anyone know where the best deals on Bosch are to be
