Please check the Forum Rules. We have gone as far as we can on the advice front, now you have to figure it out.

I can tell you that the drum comes out through the top, and clearing everything from the top of the machine is crucial. You shouldn't need to disconnect any wiring at the top, but take piccies just in case. You'll have to disconnect down on the drum, so diagrams and piccies are essential. Release hoses and suspension legs, put the machine on its side and haul away.

Stay safe - power off first.

Which bit of "Unplug it" is causing the problem?

Thanks you Penguin45.

You said that "The entire tank assembly has to be removed for fitting, as the drum goes through the front."

That coupled with your statement above has confused me abit. :? .

If you read them separately, you will understand.

Thank you for the part number. Is that just for the broken arm? Is the arm permanently attached to the inner drum? Is there a picture of this in the Spares & Accessories section where you can point me to?

For 'tank' read inner and outer drum complete assembly.

The complete 'tank' comes out through the top of the cabinet, the inner drum comes out of the front of the outer drum.

The inner drum and shaft are a complete assembly.

It will not be held as a stock item so no picture, we can source one for you though.

Jaspal...you will need to get the complete tank-assembly out....remove the motor,door-seal,main drive-pulley etc. then you can take the front off the outer-tank and will probably need a soft-metal (brass or aluminium) drift to knock the main shaft/inner drum through to separate them

....it sounds as though the 3-spoked spider /shaft assembly is permanently fixed to the inner drum and you have to buy the complete assembly.

It would be foolish to reassemble without fitting new bearings and a seal (all comes in a kit)


IMHO, It's not worth the time/efort/cash on that machine.

Hi, Thank you for your post.

I actually don't mind doing the work, might sound crazy, but I wanted to fix this myself.

If the price of the parts is alot, say £100, then I am not going to bother. The machine has given us a good 9+ years of no problems.

Just wondering, can you take the front panel of the machine off? If you can, how is this done?

Time to think it through.

Thanks again.

ps. Just wondering, what is this part for?

Yup! that's the part! I dodn't check if that's the right part for your particular machine... but 8O 8O 58 quid!!!!!!!!

Bloody hell!!!!!! Dick Turpin, at least had the decency to wear a black eyepatch before emptying their wallets :evil:

Now, before you get ambitious.

If you could get access from the front, the guys on here would have told you so!

when the spider goes, as you have established, the clothes-drum wobbles around hitting the tub...the heater is inthe gap and, unless it's recessed, the drum front edge saws a slot in the heater which is now U/S

You will likely find that the drum is RIVETTED to the old spider....you would have to cut/drill/grind away the rivets without damaging the (wafer-thin) Stainless
Oh, and you'll need stainless bolts/nuts/lockwashers (available in small packs in some sizes from Screwfix, budget £15 or so )

then you stil have the bearing/seal kit..


My advice, your'e kicking 5hit uphill with Indesit......if you really want to repair a machine ,for the challenge, pick up a non-working Bosch or Zanussi (Miele are great but parts unobtainable on the open market and would bankrupt you)
off Fleabay... my last Zanussi cost me £15 by the time i'd collected it....fixed the doorlock but it had fried the main board...transistors/capacitors/resistors are not a problem but ONLY they have the EEPROM , without which you're stymied!

research this site, you'll then know what is a reasonable and repairable machine.

It won't be labelled Indesit unless it's already over 20 years old :P
(in which case all rubber will be perished and unobtainable!

Cheers Steve.

Just checked my email, got a price for the whole inner drum assembly - £132.15. 8O

Well that settles that then.

I believe I'll go for a new washing machine.

But I am still taking the indesit apart anyway, :twisted: just for the sake of it. Been doing alot of reading about washing machines, be a shame to waste all that time spent.

Thank you to Steve, iadom, Penguin45, Goatboy, Toolbox, helo_75 and maltheviking.

be a good experience for you

DO NOT BUY A HAIER

if anyone thinks the indesit stuff is doo doo, they seen nothin till theyve watched one of these babies just trying to spin, never mind tryin to be quiet while therye doin it... if they havent blown up long time previous

spend the money and pick a better quality machine

prevention is often better than cure in my opinion

Thanks for the support helo_75.

I'll be starting a new thread regarding the new machine, as soon as I have browsed this site and others, probably sunday.

If anybody can advise me, I would like to know how to take the front of the machine off, I still havn't got around to doing to yet, been out of action due to a bad cold.

Are there any parts on the indesit, which would be classed as "generic", which can fit other machines?

Apart from this knocking sound, the machine is strong as a bull.

Thanks again and enjoy your weekend guys 8)

thats the point.. the front doesnt come off

what ppl are trying to say, is that the only way to get to the spider out is to take the whole tank assy out of the top of the machine, and work on it from there

not easy, just be careful of sharp edges and the weight of the drum assy

when you get it out, then you can take the front of the tub off, remove the pulley, then knock the drum out

good luck

Contact your local fire brigade, they will have what is required to remove the front. :wink:
