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.

    Could you confirm model please. I have wma42 on my screen!

    I now have wt 540 in which case remove screws at back of lid and push back. It will need a firm hit with the palm of your hand as these are always extremely stiff.

Drum will not move


Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

The drive belt as come off


It is virtually impossible to fit belt from top on this washer dryer. as there is no room to get your hands in.
The easiest way to do it, is to remove the rear panel, and fit it from the back.
You will find it easy to do it this way.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I am trying to fit a new drum belt on a hotpoint aquarius vtdoo reverse action


You need to remove the top cover, remove the right hand side panel,ease the drum forward and fit the new belt.
It is very difficult to fit the new belt without the proper tool avialable from Hotpoint.
It can be done without the tool, but be prepared to stuggle

Belt has come off


I have fitted a replacement belts on a few older machines (Hotpoint WMA series). The procedure is likely to be very similar on yours.

Check your belt for wear - if it fits really easily it may already be stretched and will come off again quickly. A replacement is less than £20.

1/ Turn off power and disconnect.
2/ Check you have Turned off power and disconnect.!

3/ You best course of action is to open the lid. You will need tools. Torx set etc. Look for little finger nail size plastic covers over torx heads on the sides. Remove lid (push back and lift).

Once opened you will see large drive wheel connected to the back of the drum and the drive motor is at the bottom. Use a torch if its dark!. You will need to ensure the belt is fixed around both of these. This is not easy to do. And try not to pinch your fingers.

It may help to remove the concrete block on top of the drum to give you more room. Use large spanner. (You must remember exactly how this is fitted to refit)

4/ Dangle the belt around the motor spindle and lightly pull it to stop it sliding off. Next pull the belt round one side of the drum wheel. Gently rotate the drum until the belt is looped round the drum wheel and the drive motor at the same time. Sounds easy? it's not.

Regards
