Remove the lid and the lower back panel.
loop the belt over the motor shaft from the top and then half over the drum pulley. turn the pulley slowly while holding the belt to it until its fully on, you can also put a cable tie to hold it if it's easier for you as the are tight. the tie will break off when the belt is on fully. its a bit like putting a bicycle chain back on.

Hotpoint Ultima washing machine: F-01 What does this mean?

The Hotpoint manufacturer's site says this code means:
F01 - Short circuit motor triac - Book a washing machine repair.

However, what it means is that it could have a faulty motor or motor control board. The motor tachometer could also be faulty. Some machines have a little rotating magnet and sensor, and the magnet can become detached. If this code is not constant, and tending to come on during a spin cycle, check the drive belt for wear or slack, and check the motor brushes.

Hotpoint washing machine. Replaced drive belt yesterday but fell off again during cycle. Also tightened up pulley. What have I not done?

You most likely didn't tighten up the belt tensioner, this adjusts the tightness of the belt, so as it stretches, during use, this can be, adjusted out.

How do I reattach/replace the belt that causes the Hotpoint Ultima WF860 to spin?

If you remove the back cover from the machine, you should see a big round pulley which attatches in the centre to the inner drum shaft. Below the drum you should see the motor. The belt goes around the big round pulley and onto the much smaller pulley on the end of the motor shaft.

How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 ?

The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.
