Re: How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on...

The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.

It is possible the motor start capacitor has failed. Unless you know how to test it, call a service person.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can tell me in detail how to remove the casing of a hotpoint wd860 ultima so I can access the belt pulleys to replace the belt. Totally stumped and have hurt my finger this...

jon you would have to remove the drum and you don't want to go to that hassle to fit a belt.
try this out
  1. remove lid
  2. remove back inspection panel
  3. from top of machine fit belt around motor pulley
  4. half fit belt to the drum pulley
  5. Here's the tip, get a cable tie and secure belt to drum pulley, may need to use 2 ties
  6. now slowley rotate drum and belt should slip straight on
when your not used doing this sometimes a good idea to remove the top weight, 3 13mm bolts. this will give you more room.

hope this helps

Noise when spinning

Remove drive belt and spin drum by hand, if it is noisy, or feels rough, then the main bearings have failed, if no noise, then check for noisy motor bearings.
Please rate my solution.

The drive belt has come off my Hotpoint WF860 washing machine

remove the lid and the lower back panel.
loop the belt over the motor shaft from the top and then half over the drum pulley. turn the pulley slowly while holding the belt to it until its fully on, you can also put a cable tie to hold it if it's easier for you as the are tight. the tie will break off when the belt is on fully. its a bit like putting a bicycle chain back on.

How do I reattach/replace the belt that causes the Hotpoint Ultima WF860 to spin?

If you remove the back cover from the machine, you should see a big round pulley which attatches in the centre to the inner drum shaft. Below the drum you should see the motor. The belt goes around the big round pulley and onto the much smaller pulley on the end of the motor shaft.
