My machine is an Indesit Washing machine Model no WIA10

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

Can you check the WIA10 part?
Normally there's 3 numbers.

Thanks

Hiya,
OK, I see you have 2 questions open and the model number of WIA101 on the other question.

You cannot change the bearings on this tub, it's a plastic welded tub.

You have to change the entire tub assembly.
It comes with a new pulley and element.

Sorry, not the news you were hoping for.

Hope this helps
Thanks

Thanks for your answer BUT how is it I have managed to purchase a NEW Bearing set from Amazon with a Seal ???


Should I try and get my money back ??

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,
Sorry but there's no way I would know why a seller on Amazon has sold you bearings and seals to fit a machine that has a sealed tub.
You need to ask them this new question.

I can only tell you that you've described the sealed tub assembly and you cannot change the bearings in that unit.

I can also confirm that the parts diagram for your machine shows a sealed tub assembly.

Thanks
