Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
I am replacing the rear drum and need to change the heater element over from the old to the new. I can't get the element out.
Unscrew the center nut completely, lever the metal plate as far forward as you can, pull out the thermistor (thermostat) out of the grommet, then get a screwdriver or similar and lever the rubber seal out, be careful not to split it, or you will have to fit a new heater,
Coat the seal with lubricant before trying to refit the element back into the new tub, it is difficult to get back in.
Normally I would fit a new element complete with new seal.
Plz rate my solution.
