Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer
I have a hotpoint first edition wm51 washing machine and the belt has came off. can someone please tell me how to repair it?
Hi, welcome to Fixya.
The belt has come off for a reason, and there are a few reasons for it to do so.
1- You have overloaded the m/c
2- It is not draining properly.
3- The main drum bearings have gone. Before replacing the belt spin the drum by hand, and if it is noisy or feels rough , then the bearings have gone.
That means calling an engineer.
4- Worn or broken belt.
To refit the belt, do the following.
Remove top cover, and rear panel.
Tilt the m/c forwards, and support it.
Reach inside and slip the belt over the motor pulley, then start feeding the belt round the drum pulley, it is fiddley, but this is the only way, as you get the belt futher round, it will get very tight, so don't trap your fingers, just keep on going.
If it slips off, start again.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, And a merry xmas.
