It is rather tricky to fit new belt.
Briefly, remove top cover, remove right hand side panel, there are screws at the back and bottom front, remove any other scews that you can see that hold the panel in place..
The front panel has to be pulled forward to enable the new belt to be fitted. You might have to loosen left hand panel as well to do this.
Fit the belt round the drum and force it over and round the motor pulley
This is a very difficult job, as the belt is a stretch belt
and appears to be too small, so you will really struggle to fit it, you will probably find it helps if you can lever it on with a screwdriver or similar.

Again, it is a difficult job to undertake, so unless you are confident you can do it, get some one in to fix it for you.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a Hotpoint Aqualtis wash/dryer which stopped working with a 'F12' fault. Now when I turn the socket on I get an immediate really loud whir/buzz.


possibly the main drive belt has either snapped or jumped off the pulley and this allows you to turn easily by hand the whir/buzz sounds like system in coming into play but with no belt to drive nothing more happens, the front lower portion of the machine could be the water pump working overtime unable to drain ???

Put new belt on hotpoint aquarius last one snapped but only turns with 3 items init no more but worked perfect before belt snapped?


A shaft could be seizing which is why other belt snapped, check the bearings and shaft to make sure they turn freely. Possibly wrong belt ? also check for worn pulley's.

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.

My Hotpoint Aquarius VTD20 will not start. The lights are on, the belt is tight on the drum. It sounds as if it is trying to work, however the drum does not turn around.


is there a loose connection from the motor plug to the control board up on top of the unit
when you start a cycle does it make any clicking noises? if so then it it probably a loose connector
