Question about Washing Machines
Hotpoint wd64 water feed tube layout help needed and appreciated!!! I have bought a house that included said washer dryer. It was leaking badly so I opened it up and there was a disconnected tube so I popped it back on the only available place (bottom cold water feed connection) and it was fine until the dryer part of the wash cycle kicked in. Basically water started firing out of what a presume is some sort of air mix port (see pic). I think they have connected the tubes wrong but any help confirming this would be greatly appreciated. The hot water feed is connected to the first input behind the powder tray (looking from te back it's the left side) The top cold water feed is connected to the 4th Middle cold feed is the 2nd And the bottom cold feed goes straight to the pic. Any pictures of how the tubes should look would be great Thanks JD

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!

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.
If you have any questions, let me know
