have you checked the motor brushes there are 2 of them they are located on each side of the motor you will have to take the motor off and you will see them at the back of the motor undo the 2 screws on each one and take out the carbons should be 25m long and shinny and spring in and out freely I can supply new ones if you need them
Remove the rear panel of washer, and tilt washer forward away from you with someone to hold it steady.
Fit the belt round the motor pulley first and slowly feed it round the drum pulley turning the drum pulley at the same time,
It will be very tight, so watch your fingers.
It may seem to be too small, but persist with it, and it will go on.
You are doing the right thing. Hook the belt onto the motor pulley, then onto the main pulley as far as it will go, use a few cable ties to hold it on the pulley and turn the drum anti clockwise, the cable ties will snap as the pulley turns. Hotpoint have made a tool for putting these belts on but you woudn't want to pay out just for one belt.Belt fitting Diagram link
if you have gotten that far your good
now try to look at the motor it sounds like your belt might be a lil off track on the mortor shaft
there is a adjustment srew on the top left of the motro its hidden under things but its there
you can looses this and swing the motor
make sure you have it lined up on the motor shaft and it should stay aligned on the pully
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.
It sounds like it needs new carbons fitting in the motor.
It is a fairly straightforward repair.
Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear.
The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt.
Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum.
You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic`lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor.
fit new genuine Hotpoint carbons, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals.
Tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight.
Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
Plz rate my solution.
hook the belt around the motor spindle first then get the belt as far round the pully as you can once at that stage hold the belt firmly as you can on the pully and turn the pully round making sure that the belt does not slip off keep turning the puully round till the belt is fully on once on spin the drum around by hand to make sure that it is on the pully square with motor spindle. job done. if this helped please leave feed back.
