Place it on the motor pulley and then guide it around the drum pulley. It will have come off for a reason which if you do not correct will cause it to come off again. Lay it flat on a table - if it does not lay flat - replace it. Check the pulley on the drum does not move from side to side. (problem with pulley or drum bearings)

Refit belt


There is provision made for tensioning the belt.
It is self tensioning.
Remove top cover and rear panel.
With the washer tilted away from you,(get someone to hold it for you)Fit the belt round the motor pulley first, then slowly feed it round the drum pulley, turning the pulley at the same time, watch your fingers as it will be very tight, and just keep going until the belt is on, if it slides off, just start again.
Good luck.

How do I change the door boot seal on a Hotpoint Aquarius WMA31N?


Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.

Washing Machine Belt Bosch WFF20


Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

You asked,
The belt has come off my Bosch WFF 1800 washing machine and I'd like to try and refit it - what should it go around?

The belt did not just come off! there is a reason it came off!
You may want to put it back on. But the problem may not be just the belt.
Sometimes the belt comes of prematurely due to another problem in a Bosch. You bough the top of the line machine and it deserves the top of the line service.
Or you may find your self paying twice for a job that cuold have been done once the right way!

Please save your self some money and get service on this particular machine!

Bless You,
ngafm

You are welcome to write me and let me know how it goes.

Please give me a good rating for this fine advice I just give you, as i would my brother.
