I replace these weights regularly and tighten them up as tight as i can get them (and i am a big chap) so as tight as you can get them with a ratchet and socket.

I got the strap of my swimsuit stuck under the agitator of my Hotpoint washing machine. I removed the top layer of the agitator, but don't know how to get under the part beneath it.

With the first part of the agitator off you now have to remove another cap off the top of what you now see. Under that will be a bolt that holds the whole bottom of the agitator on.

Need to change the drum bearings on a hotpoint wm63p anyone done a video showing how to do it?

If the motor bearings need replaced, you're better off just replacing the whole motor. Save yourself time.

I have bought a new electric motor for my Hotpoint WM63P washing machine but the old seven pin connector has different locator guides to the new one. any ideas

Your best bet is to refer back to the spare parts shop where you bought the motor. Maybe they supplied the wrong one.....or..there may be an adaptor if the part is compatable...Good luck.....Nomess

Hotpoint wma76 front load very noisy on spin cycle

If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.

This works

To exit the TEST mode, press and hold down the "Start/Cancel" button until ALL of the console lights light up. Press both "Start/Cancel" and On/Off buttons simultaneously until " dOFF " appears in the display. The default setting will now appear and the machine can be used normally.

Hotpoint washing machine outer tub moulding

The only way to resolve is to replace the outer tub, no other permanent sollution, what hotpoint mean is that you would not have to replace whole outer drum only the front half.
