Hi There

TAke the lid off the appliance and note the construction of the drum.
It's very likely to be a plastic drum with a half joint running round its periphery secures with screws.
If this is what you see then you need to remove the complete drum before you split the drum.

Hi have drum out and there is a rim that looks like a half joint but it seems to be stuck together as there are no screws to be seen keeping the drum together so i was wondering if there was any other way to get the bearings out Regards Kevin.
Expert:  SparePartsPro replied 6 years ago.
The screws that hold it together on the half joint would be visible from the top of the machine.
If having taken the drum out you don't have those screws then it is a welded drum that can not be separated.
You would be required to change the complete drum assembly.
If you can find the PNC number I can let you know the correct part number.

where would i find the PNC number would it be on the plate with the other numbers
Regards Kevin.
Expert:  SparePartsPro replied 6 years ago.
If you look on the inside of the door of the machine there is a label with the number printed on it together with the model number.
