My Hotpoint TC71 condencer drier has sheared its rear bearing post.It had been going scrape for sometime but didn't get around to looking at it until it snapped! Can get a rear bearing kit but just wondered if you could advise with the dismantle / reassemble sequence? Thanks

    Bsically follow these steps:


    • Old Style: First, remove the several screws holding the top down and then the bottom two screws Then remove the drum center bearing clip, unstring the belt, and remove the drum.

    • New Style: Remove the top panel retaining screws, pop the top, and then remove the inner front panel screws. Unstring the belt and remove the drum. Here’s what it looks like with the drum removed. There are two variations on this dryer that affect how you restring the belt. Variation 1 has a rear access panel through which you can restring the belt. Variation 2, however, does not have this rear access panel. (Thank you, GE
      ) To restring the belt on this sorry excuse for a dryer, remove the
      phillips screw inside the rear exit opening of the blower duct and
      remove the duct. Then restring the belt from the front.
    A specific HotPont/GE service manual can be found here as well:

    Hope that helps!
    Dont forget to ACCEPT the solution if it helped you!

Washer gets noisy and bangs around or out of balance during spin cycle


OK, lets see if I can help you. First, remove the 2 screws that are on the rear of the top panel, slide the panel back about 1/2 inch and lift the top off. Look at the rear bearings and any other visible signs of malfunction. Also, be sure to check the suspension for anything that may be loose. Post your findings back to me.

It's a hotpoint wf541g washer, I've read the


You can buy bearings but the only way to confirm the exact sizes used is to dismantle the machine and then you will be able to identify the ones used, The main reason they suggest a new drum is sometimes the bearings will not come out or go in easily and can cause the drum to crack which means you would need another drum if this happens.

Drum wont move


Check the motor and the belt on the back of the unit behind the rear plate. Make sure that the belt is attached and the motor is spinning. If this helped please rate. Thank you

if the drum is tight to turn ,then the main bearings have probably seized, or their could be something fast in the drum. Remove belt, and try to turn the drum by hand , it shuold be free with no resitance.
If it is noisy or feels rough, then the bearings have gone.

Drier not working


take top off. you will see drier manifold going across top of machine with stats mounted on it. one or more of these stats is resetteble ie has a little button in the middle. press to reset. some hotpoint have a thermal fuse mounted on the manifold so if present, check this for continuity as well. with top still off, put on dry and check fan working as well.
if you get it going and fault reoccurs, then there is a blockage in the drier duct

Hotpoint washer dryer leaking water whilst drying


driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.
