Basic diy tools should be ok. Take out lid screws behind plastic caps on edge(will be stars but small flat will do it).Lift front of lid and push back to remove.Remove kick plate and take out screws behind it.Remove band holding front end of seal and detach seal from rim of opening. Remove screws holding door lock and push lock through. Remove soap drawer & take out screws behind it.Carefully bring panel forward & slide to right to remove(Take care here with board &wiring)Remove screws holding front panel & lift front panel & remove it.Remove band from seal and your there.Note locating slot on seal. If possible get an extra pair of hands to hold panel with board to avoid damage.

The machine makes excessive noise when spinning and the drum feels to have some movement. I think that the bearing needs to be replaced. The machine is a 6 kg Not tried to fix it yet. Need advice on how...


quite a hard job if you never done this work before.....Depending on model bearings can be on its own kit or you will need HALF DRUM complete with prefitted bearings cost of this is around £75 ...plus labour at around 2 hrs.....If its under 5 yrs old Hotpont give a 5 yr warranty call charge is around £100,although this is all you would pay as the Parts are under warranty..Hope this helps.

My hotpoint washing machine (model wma50) will not start due to the door lock light flashing yet the door is closed


common problem on these machine's, you need a new door handle which comes as a full assembley with spring and all attached.

open the door, using star screw driver remove top and bottom screws along with two near the catch.

the doo wil split enough to remove old handle and fit new 1.

The motor does not have provision for belt adjostment, it is self tensioning
To gain access to the brushes, you need to remove the motor from the washer.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, unplug motor lead, taking note which way the plug goes,undo screws securing motor, and lever motor back with a screw driver, remove motor and change brushes.
