Check if plug is loose on motor,in the general area where the belt was changed has anything been disturbed,cables i mean?,sounds like the motor brushes may be worn(this would cause motor to stop),they are situated 180degrees apart at one end of motor,they are easy to change,there is a spot at brushes to put a screwdriver in to remove brushes-hope this helps

Drive belt on hotpoint wm56 keeps coming off when machine goes on fast spin. I have fitted a new belt but it still keeps happening.


Make sure belt is reasonably tight, and it is in the center of the drum pulley, if it still comes off, then I would suspect that the drum bearings are worn, or the drum is running out of alighnment, or the motor bearings are worn, if it is noisy when you spin the drum by hand, then the bearings have definately failed.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Here's our video guide to replacing a washingmachine drum lifter.
A broken agitator paddle can cause your clothesto tear. Don't let this happen when replacing one is relatively simple.
The plastic paddles in the drum on the later washing machines (WMA models) often come looseand come off altogether. They can be replaced. call them lifters. You usually insert a smallscrewdriver down one of the holes (it's the 3rd one on ) and gently press downwhile sliding the lifter out.
Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputedto damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly onnon-quality washing machines.
There are few types of drum lifter; drum Paddle lifters

On hotpoint, creda, Ariston ,indersit and someother makes see video
To fit new paddle, make sure the retaining lugis up slightly see video, line up the lugs on the paddle in the slots in thedrum, and push firmly with both hands towards the rear of the drum, you shouldfeel it click into place, make sure you fit it the correct way round and youare fitting the correct paddle lifter for your washing machine.

Does not spin and rinse properly


Sounds like motor is not coming up to spin speed. May be overheating, in which case you would need a new motor.

Washing machine does not spin out all water


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Machine failing to spin correctly and drum wobbling everywhere


Open up behind, check to see if any spring/springs have come off. Check to see if one or more of the shock absorbers loose or faulty. The shock absorbers can be removed to be examined (note how they are fitted before attempting to remove) Faulty shocks shd be replaced. Wet clothes. Probably your exit is blocked with previous muck, check. Open out to clean well.

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.
