    Could it be needing a new belt or bearings?

If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

How do i fit the drive belt on a hotpoint wma74 washing machine


Hook the belt over the motor shaft and feed it onto the drum pulley as far as it will go,hold it in place on the pulley with the aid of cable tie clips, then rotate the inner drum anti clock wise by holding the inside of the inner drum. This will draw the belt onto the pulley and the cable ties will snap as the drum rotates.

Hi our hotpoint ultima wma74 front loader sounds like a tank when drum is on a spin i think the bearing has gone but im not sure how to get the drum out do i need to take it outfrom the top or is there an...


The whole drum assy comes out through the front of the m/c.
It is required that you remove the top cover and front panel altogether, and detach everything that is connected to the cabinet and remove the hoses from pump and dispenser. It is not a job to be undertaken unless you know what you are doing.

How do I reattach/replace the belt that causes the Hotpoint Ultima WF860 to spin?


If you remove the back cover from the machine, you should see a big round pulley which attatches in the centre to the inner drum shaft. Below the drum you should see the motor. The belt goes around the big round pulley and onto the much smaller pulley on the end of the motor shaft.

Hotpoint Ultima WF840


all i can suggest with the info you have given, is to remove the lid and check for anything lose like the weight block etc also have you checked the inner drum for play, maybe the bearings have gone please not to all it is not safe to continue to run machines that are making noises, they can only get worse making more damage, what can start off as something silly can eventually write off the machine start with that and see how you go, glad to help, if i have helped please rate me
