Ordering New Drum Bearings

Recommended Posts

I have an Indesit WIXXL106EU machine which had badly worn bearings. The machine is finally apart after struggling with the bearings severely stuck to the shaft. I thought I'd be able to identify suitable replacement parts, but I'm getting conflicting information.

The printed user control panel proudly states 7kg load, but I'm sure the tub/drum is 6kg based upon the model no. ie, 106=1000spin, 6kg load. Which is it?

Spider shaft is 30mm. Front bearing is 30mm, rear bearing 25mm. Bearings are nos. 6206 (front) 6205 (rear). Rear tub has "Ø30" embossed in the thermoplastic.

I can't locate a suitable spider and bearing kit anywhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction? If I order a 35mm spider and bearing kit, will these fit into the bearing housing mounted to the rear tub?

Alternatively, I'm considering replacing the complete tub and drum assembly if I can locate one at the right price (say around £100). In this case it won't matter if it's 30 or 35mm as long as the tub will fit the above model. Again, can anyone give me some pointers?
