You need to remove the top cover, remove the right hand side panel,ease the drum forward and fit the new belt.
It is very difficult to fit the new belt without the proper tool avialable from Hotpoint.
It can be done without the tool, but be prepared to stuggle

How do i fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .

Thankyou.

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.

Belt has come off


I have fitted a replacement belts on a few older machines (Hotpoint WMA series). The procedure is likely to be very similar on yours.

Check your belt for wear - if it fits really easily it may already be stretched and will come off again quickly. A replacement is less than £20.

1/ Turn off power and disconnect.
2/ Check you have Turned off power and disconnect.!

3/ You best course of action is to open the lid. You will need tools. Torx set etc. Look for little finger nail size plastic covers over torx heads on the sides. Remove lid (push back and lift).

Once opened you will see large drive wheel connected to the back of the drum and the drive motor is at the bottom. Use a torch if its dark!. You will need to ensure the belt is fixed around both of these. This is not easy to do. And try not to pinch your fingers.

It may help to remove the concrete block on top of the drum to give you more room. Use large spanner. (You must remember exactly how this is fitted to refit)

4/ Dangle the belt around the motor spindle and lightly pull it to stop it sliding off. Next pull the belt round one side of the drum wheel. Gently rotate the drum until the belt is looped round the drum wheel and the drive motor at the same time. Sounds easy? it's not.

Regards
