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.

    Should you need to remove the top, make sure that there is not 3 screws fitted, having removed the screws, smartly push the top to the rear of the m/c. they sometimes stick under the front console panel.

Have you tried turning the drum with belt removed to see if sound is from drum or motor.If you cant get at belt easy thru. top ( make sure power is off) then you will have to split the casing which will give you a great view of all the moving parts to see if any loose parts.It may be that the bearings have gone so badly that it is clunking as it turns.Normal bearing failure noise is a rumbling.
Remove 2 screws at rear underside of top lid and remove.On top middle either side by springs remove the 4 screws holding back panel,down below at rear there is normally 2 or 3 screws on corners of panel,now go to side of panel bottom middle by seam and remove round white plastic covers put small screwdriver in hole and pull out there is a screw behind each (8mm small socket).Now by water inlet valves prise out white plastic housing with valves still inside now put screw driver in spli on side panel either side and work it back you will have to hold down drain hose to clear panel,once off you can inspect for any damage or loose parts,check drum pulley is not loose or worn,check motor also concrete balance weights one on back top of drum casing and one at front around door seal,sometimes these come loose.To refit casing it is a reverse of removal.
Hopefully this will be helpful.

Good Luck.

How to replace belt on wma62

There is a small panel at the bottom rear of washer that can be removed.
Remove this, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not.

If it has come off, then to refit it, or fit a new one on, do the following.
Remove the top cover by undoing 2 screws located behind 2 plastic covers st the top front sides of washer.
They are torx screws, but you can usually get them undone with a small screwdriver.
Lift the top up at the front, and smartly push the top back,
towards the rear, remove the top.

Tilt the washer forward towards you, this will give you more room to work in.
Fit the belt round the motor pulley first, then pull it up towards the drum pulley, and reaching down from the top slowly feed the belt round the pulley, turning it as you do so, it is difficult, but this is
the best way to do it.
Don't get your fingers trapped.
There is no adjustment req'd, as it is a self tesioning belt.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42. I was using the machine when there was a bang and the electrics tripped. I reset the fuse box, checked the plug fuse and the socket but still nothing. No lights so presumably no...

It more than likely is the motor that has shorted. Remove lower rear panel, remove belt. Undo 2 screws that hold motor in place, remove motor plug, lever motor back to remove same,
Remove carbons and check for wear, also look at armature and see if there is any sign of shorting, clean armature with emery paper, fit new carbons, refit motor and belt, test.

If it still does not work, then in all probability it will have blown the main control board.which would require replacing.
