fix or replace?

our washing machine drum bearings have gone, now i have watched a youtube video of how to change them, and know i could do it, but the amount of space and time it would take would be ridiculous, especially coming up to xmas, so would you guys fix or replace?

btw its a 5 KG load Beko machine, and served us well for 7 1/2 years now

Replace I have been over the years a fixer upper man on all appliances , but with replacement costs know I just cant be bothered unless simple low time work like bearing on tumble dryer etc or door seal on washing machine or belt

Have replaced bearing before with father in law on his, fairly simple procedure - we managed to get the bearing off without a major strip down - main issue is knowing what size and how easy / quick is it to get a replacement and cost obviously...

At 7.5 years old, personally, could be tempted to replace...

Fix if you have the simple knowledge and tools to pull a bearing off a shaft.

Bearing pullers and some heat will make it a simple task.

don't think they're attached to the shaft, i believe you have to knock them out of the drum, but will try and check

Hmmm, I just presume being a bearing something sits in the inner race!

From what I have seen, theres 2 sets of bearings in the back of the drum, then the shaft goes through them, well that's after watching a YouTube video

It's a 'white good', i.e disposable & cheap - bin it and get a new one
