Probably the most popular washing machine bearing available and many older models just require a new bearing when the machine starts to become noisy, not a major overhaul and some dealers will lead you to believe. Because the bearing is not directly exposed to water there is no need to use stainless although these are also available. If you are confident enough to change the bearing in your washing machine because it is noisy then we can guarantee a next day delivery so you are not waiting around in dirty clothes for too long! Other popular sizes are 6203-zz and also 6205-zz and manufacturer is not important as the loads are not very demanding. For peace of mind we recommend the FAG type as you are then guaranteed a great fit. We supply most of the major companies including Hotpoint, Zannussi and Whirlpool although many newer machines have the bearing as part of a complete unit __ please check with the manufacturers before ordering.
