Yes you can turn it, but be aware that on some occasion there might be some spashes even when the cut is at the top side. Dissassemble the spring-assembly (clamp-assembly) at the front side when door is openusing flat screwdriver. remove the top cover by undoing two screws one at each side of the top cover. pull out the detergent compartment, and undo three screws positioned from the front side just behind the detergent drawer, slide all the front panel to right side and it will come of. now unscrew three screws which been covered by front panel. gently pull all the front casing and disconnect the door-lock (2wire connection) put the front casing aside and dissassemble or just loosen enough clamp-assembly at the other end of rubber where the it is attached to the drum. turn the rubber to either side 180 degrees and assemble everything in the reverse order. Please make sure the rubber is properly in it's place when assembling.

Let me know about your progress.

Good Luck

    Thank you. You saved us a lot of cash. Only thing that wasn't quite as stated was after sliding the front panel off. On my machine, it did not reveal three screws, but two. An another two needed to be removed behind the bottom panel which just pulls off.

We wish to replace the rubber doorseal on Hotpoint WMA42P. I can remove the door seal ring but cannot quite see how the drum seal is fixed. Is it the same system with a sprung ring? Martyn

The following video is of a Hotpoint WF door seal replacement which is the same as the WMA series except the fascia panel is slightly different, make sure you take a photo of the wiring connections before you remove the fascia so you know where they go when you replace it

Hotpoint wma74 wont spin

It could be the motor's carbon brushes have worn out. Replace with the same type. Need to get at the motor, you simply unscrew and slide out. If they are hard to reach then you will have to take the drive belt off and remove the motor and then take them out. These brushes provided the electricity to the motor in order for it to spin.

Hotpoint WMA74 does not pump out after programmed

No test available other than:
Remove pump - check motor will turn by rotating impellor. There is a slight resistance then moves freely, then slight resistance and freely again. This is correct for this machine. worth checking there is no hair, elastic band or other obstruction around the impellor fins and shaft whilst the pump is out.
There is no spin cycle so you have to use rinse & spin, which means if the pump is shot you need to empty the machine each time :(
Worth checking lower filter as stated and blowing down the drain hose whilst the pump is off to check for obstructions.
The resolution to my problem was a new pump - £20.
All working fine again now !

How do i clean a blocked filter on a wma74

Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to the bottom of the drum.
Remove and clean the plastic filter inside hose, make sure you fit it back on correctly, or it will come off.
Remove the hose onto the pump, and check for obstruction or blockage here and in the pump itself.
Please rate my solution.
