Hoover Oph614-80 - Can You Replace The Bearing?


Recommended Posts

The machine has become noisy and there is movement in the drum so the bearing has gone. I have stripped the machine down and the plastic tub looks to be in 2 halves but I can't separate them, are they welded? There are no screws to be seen so I'm thinking they are and the bearings can't be replaced.

Many tubs are now welded so they can't be stripped down, which is an outrage.

Thanks for the reply Andy.

That's a shame as I could've repaired it cheaply if it wasn't welded.

The machine is just under 4 years old so I have a year of the parts warranty left. This will cost me £119 for them to replace it, which although is cheaper than a new machine I'm wondering if it's worth it - do parts sell for much? I read a while ago about this model being one that explodes, which although it's unlikely to happen I've not trusted it since.

If it's one of the "exploding" washing machines it's unlikely to have the fault if they fit a new drum because it would be a modified one. It was caused by a fault in manufacture several years back.
