Hi all. My aquamatic is making a rattle noise and to my conviction I am presuming it is the bearings. Sofar I have tried Espares and Ebay. I cannot think of anywhere else to go. If it is not what I am presuming please could one of you load some more suggestions

Thanks, Chris

i know what you mean and i do hope you find the part you could always ask in a appliance store where they seel applioance with your washer model and serial number to see if they know a appliance part store that would have the part?

There should be a second bearing but I can't tell which one it is, although if you got the old one out you should be able to buy a generic one to match.

a google search shows this as a common 6203 bearing; sounds small. ie a 17mm bore 40mm od and 12mm width. This bearing is very common.It was used on the Generator of Fords 1930's model A car; it is used on a 2011 car too. Here in the USA they are so common that that cost about 2 dollars as singles at a auto parts parts house.

Yeah like I say, there are two bearings, I'm just not sure which is the second because there are multiple parts listed for the same model.

It's important you replace the bearing seal because the reason the bearings fail in the first place is because the seal has gone. The seal is the only part which is a potential problem, luckily it is still available in this case.
