    my husband is currently cursing at my WF250 trying to change the belt.  I guess the manufacturers never expected them to go.  Is there a tensioning bolt anywhere?

Put it on the motor spindle first then feed it onto pulley. It is tricky with such limited access.
Hope this helps &thanks for using Fixya.

The door is locked on my hotpoint wf430 and it just wont open. my wife informs me that before we went on holiday she switched the boiler off whilst the machine was in mid wash (if this is relevent). please...


the best thing you can do is remove the power lead the take the top panel off and push the drum to the rear and using a small screwdriver remove the lock and replace it from the manufactures website (you can switch off the machine at anytime and restart it by turning it back on and pressing start again depending on the type of machine of course) eric

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF430 and the drum is not turning. How do I remove the top to see if the belt has come off?


If there are no screws along the rear of the top, try inserting a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring lock--push straight back. The top is usually hinged at the back, so you will need something to prop it up. Hope this helps!

Replace belt on Hotpoint Aquarius WM31 washing


Hi.
Remove top cover of washer.
Remove rear access panel.
Slacken off the motor fixing bolts, and pull motor towards drum top.
Fit belt round motor pulley first, and then feed it round the drum pulley from the rear of the washer.
Tighten motor bolts just enough to hold motor steady, and pull motor towardsa cabinet side to tension belt, it needs to be farly tight.
Then tighten motor bolts securely.
Fit back top and rear covers.

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.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint aquarius wma50


The motor does not have provision for belt adjostment, it is self tensioning
To gain access to the brushes, you need to remove the motor from the washer.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, unplug motor lead, taking note which way the plug goes,undo screws securing motor, and lever motor back with a screw driver, remove motor and change brushes.

Drive belt came off Hotpoint Aquarius WT540


At each side of the lid there is a small plastic cover. Remove these then take out the screws. Lift the lid at the front and push it back then lift off.
Thankyou for using Fixya.
