Disconnect from mains. remove top
undo clamp that holds gasket to cabinet and peel away from cabinet.
there is a clamp holding rubber to tub - usually like a giant hose clip.
undo this clamp and peel rubber away from tub.
lubricate the slot in the rubber that goes on to the rim of the tub with washing up fluid
starting at the top, insert slot in rubber onto rim of tub.
work you way round in both directions pushing the slot onto the rim. this is a knack and you will have to be patient.
when completely on, refit clamp.
on outside, fit rubber onto cabinet (this is easy) and refit outer clamp.
test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher.
water will be foamy till washing up fluid washes away

My WF000 drum has stopped turning, Took lid off and notices the belt has come off, Should the drum not spin freely if the belt was off, If so i think there may be another problem


The drum should spin freely with the belt off, there should be no resistance, if there is, then it could be main bearing problem, or somethig stuck between inner and outer drum.

Fitting a new drive belt to a hotpoint aquarius


Remove lower rear panel, tilt washer forward, getting someone to help, and fit belt round motor pulley, then fit belt round drum pulley, slowly turning the drum pulley round as you feed the belt on, it is very tight, and you might think the belt is to small, but this is normal, as the belt stretches, just persist, but be careful you do not trap your fingers. Good luck.
Please rate my solution.

On my Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 1000 spin there are two lights flashing, one of them is the Time Delay ligh and the other is the Crease Reduction light, does anyone know why this might be occuring?


Try this out, it's for another hotpoint model:
The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. In side is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats in side. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Would be good to check out the pump too

Not draining properly


To clean your filter: It is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. In side is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats in side. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip.

Check out your pump too, there may be something clogging it, prevents pumping water out.

WASHING MACHINE DRUM WILL NOT TURN


There is no adjustment provided for lining up the pulleys.
If it comes off then there are a couple of reasons that come to mind,the belt is too slack, the belt is worn,the drum is out of alignment with the motor pulley, caused by worn drum bearings, the motor is loose, a loose drum pulley, or you are not lining the belt up properly, overloading can also throw the belt off.
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback.
