SOURCE: belt fitting for a WF000 hotpoint washer?

It should go around 2 wheels; one is the pulley of the motor, where there is a good groove. The other goes around the tub wheel which is big one. First fit to the motor wheel then fit to one side of this big wheel & turn the wheel to engage it gently. The belt should have a "give" of only half an inch, or it will be too loose or too tight.

If helped pl rate.........

mits86 , you are correct - it could be the belt.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...
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 caps 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.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(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.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
- If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

SOURCE: fitting new belt

Remove top cover and lower rear panel of washer
With some help, tilt washer forward, and fit belt round motor pulley first,slowly ease belt onto drum pulley and feed slowly round, turning pulley at same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, you can align the belt after it is fitted. Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wt640g washing machine with F05 fault. I have read and tried other customers fault finding answers but to no avail. I have taken all the pipes off and checked for blockages (none found) checked...


Hi

An F-05 error message means that the pressure switch is jammed on empty or a problem with pump.
The fault is associated with drain out (pump blocked or restricted in some way).
Small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull of the two pipes (Plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and unclip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

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 fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.
