Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer
I am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not move up or down to enable me to loop the belt around the motor spindle. Am I missing a stage?
Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.

Use electricians tie to secure the belt to the big pulley, make sure it is in the correct grooves on the motor pulley and then just turn the drum pulley clockwise till it reaches 3 o clock cut the tie(use good sidecutters and don't cut the belt) then it will wind fully on and be lined up correctly
