In case anyone needs to fit a belt to the WF250 I got one on - eventually!
There is no tensioner, the motor is held in place with fixed bolts so the system must have changed after all.
After trying in vain to fit the belt I got it on with the help of two strong cable ties.
Tilt the machine over so the weights take the drum away from the rear of the machine giving more room for access. Put the belt over the motor spindle and feed it anti clockwise around the drum til it stops. Looking down from the top use a cable tie to fix the belt at around the 11 o'clock position. Pull it round further (is tough) so the cable tie is around 1 0'clock and fix another cable tie at 11 o'clock position. Pull round once more and the belt will jump on. Turn it all back and remove the cable ties. Check the belt position is good and not slipping down between drum.

    there is always a way to tension. so don't rate me inapropiate.

    look again. Or the motor can slide or revolve. whatever.

    I am doing this 30 years. the system has not changed over 150 years.

Wf250 will only allow a very small amount of water in and then shuts off.

Check the lint screen and water outflow from inside the tub cylinder... socks are often lodged inside the tube. Check the filter screen on the inlet hose at the faucet (tap).

How do i fix a noisy spin cycle on hotpoint wf250

A noisy spin cycle is usually because the bearings are rumbling and/or collapsed.
Unfortunately this is not a simple job and would require a service call and probably a workshop.
Good luck.

Hotpoint wf250 drum wont spin

Well if you see the drum move in the wash cycle than the belt is still attached.Your door latch is the first thing to check.And the control board is the next and most likely problem.

it may be the interlock but is more probably the control PCB in the fascia, this is not a DIY repair as it requires programming when replaced.
