Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
The belt has come off both the pulley and the motor how can i get this back on ????
To refit belt, remove top cover and rear lower panel at bottom of washer.
Tilt the m/c towards you.,you may need assistance to hold m/c.
Put the belt round the motor pulley first, and then fit it on drum pulley, slowly turn the pulley feeding the belt round as you go, it will be very tight, so be careful not to trap fingers., just keep going until belt is on, there is no adjustment needed as belt is self tensioning.
The belt needs to sit in the middle of the pulley.
Plz rate my solution.

Either the motor has loosened enough from its mounting to shift to an angle instead of being straight in alignment to the pulley, or the pulley has . Whenever a belt pulley becomes misaligned or is shifted to a slightly off angle position, the belt will seek and climb up the edge that is out of alignment and make its way off.
The only other feasible explanation is that the motor or pulley has become loose enough in its mounting to slide one toward the other. A belt turning without enough tension to keep it tight and flat will, through centrifugal force, raise up enough out of its path to find the slightest misalignment and work toward that edge until it comes off.
Until this situation is corrected it will eventually find its way off again.

You most likely didn't tighten up the belt tensioner, this adjusts the tightness of the belt, so as it stretches, during use, this can be, adjusted out.

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 .
Please rate my solution.

Testimonial: "thank you,"
SOURCE: washing machine wont spin
If the machine has a sudden power glitch you must reset it.
Here is the secret:
To Reset the Inverter Board: Machine off: Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.
If you still have nothing or if that puppy is dead in the water, you have a open transorber. The part you would need is wh49X1004.
What does a transorber do? It is a line voltage filter which protects the delicate circuits in these crappy new fangled electronics. Just thought you would like to know. I have the service manual in a printable version if you want it. Let me know.
