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.

    It is a white plug with several wires going into it, it may be at the rear of the motor, or at the front, it all depends which motor is fitted to the washer.

    Hope this helps.

How do you change brushes on a hotpoint aquarius washing machine


I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF740. This does have brushes. Tilt the washing machine backwards & look underneath. The brushes can be seen on the motor housing, they are secured by two screws each.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAVT754EWW machine and there is a black soot like substance being left on the floor under the washer. It smells like rubber - do I need to replace the belt and if so, how do I do...


this black soot like substance is the motor carbon brush dust. i would get the motor brushes replaced and clean off all the dust from the pulleys and also replace the belt as it has been slipping on the dust.

You should be able to do both without disturbing the motor.

To do the brushes - about half an hour...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Tip the machine carefully up so you can get to the underside
4. Pull cables off the existing brushes.
5. Remove the brushes with a cross head screwdriver. Each brush as two screws holding in on, but the brushes are keyed into the motor chassis. They are fiddly.

To do the belt. + as long as your patience lasts...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic cap on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel. To pop the belt off, turn the wheel forcing the belt to the edge of the wheel. It will eventually come off.
6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

Hotpoint WMA50p won't spin


Had same problem today with our machine. Brushes looked OK (although one appeared a little shorter than the other).
After removing and re-fitting the brushes, motor worked fine - suggesting that it was the brushes afterall.

Now looking for replacement brushes

Washing Machine 1200 Aquarius- Hot point- will not spin?


hotpoint use two types of brush depending on the motor. if motor mounted at top of machine, brushesw are clip in and very easy to replace. look at new brush and you will see how it clips in. no need to remove motor. if motor at base of machine, brushes are screwed in with two screws per brush. rather fiddly to do in situ and you may be better of removing motor and doing job in an easy position
