Hi – this blog post should be updated. I just had a Bonfe appointed canceled as the scheduler later learned (from others in the team) Bonfe doesn’t do bearings because the job is too expensive and not worth the effort.

I don’t know why they call them bearings anyways ! That may be a bearing in the bottom clutch dept. but between the tubs ?? Looks like cheap ass materials , excuse me,, IT IS CHEAP ASS MATERIALS !!! From starting with the left handed aluminum nut which is total junk . It really don’t matter if the poor diy’ers are turning it the wrong way cus some tech told em, it still takes a chisel to obliterate it. Then u have a fine piece of metal suare shaped with threads on the corners which looks like something found at the bottom of the ocean lol. Under that there’s your super duper split ring . Now if I understand correctly as a person tightens the junk nut on top ( I’m talking about the new part since no upgrades ) the the cone shape that it sets in and then the split ring setting in the bottom in a cone shaped tube . And this particular housing that my two parts are sitting inside of is called the “washer hub” . Now here’s a real piece of fine material ! Pot metal ,right on ! Good till at least till it’s turned on .
To me it’s not so much that they put these lower grade components in their equipment. Yes I understand , save ,scrimp ,cutting edge technology , economy . But when the company becomes aware of issues directly related to there products turn there heads the other way . And the best the consumer can expect is a rude customer service that needs there butt kicked ! It don’t take a rocket scientist to see that issues like this an in all other areas including automotive ,health and so on are not the same as they used to be as a whole. Is humanity going to find happiness by cheating and quarreling and without kindness ? Big B

Hi there have 4 1/2 year old washing machine with bearing seal and spider faulty. Company we purchased from are saying it was overloaded. Have told them it was a catastrophic all around failure and machine is not fit for purpose. Inspection carried out by their approved repairer. Where do we go from here if they are refusing to replace or fix it. Repairer wants $550 to fix it

I never knew that the reason why washing machines are making loud noises are because of rusted bearings that must be either replaced or repaired. My husband and I are getting bothered because our washing machine has been making knocking sounds when we’re operating it. This has never happened, so we’re clueless how we can remedy the problem. We’ll make sure to ask a professional to repair it.
