SOURCE: How to remove top panel and front facia on a Hotpoint Aquarius WDF451 washing machine

Un plug it. There should be small screws either at the bottom of the panel on the front or there is separate panel that comes off the top back. If the back is one solid piece top to bottom, then the control panel lifts out and hinges up when the two small cross tip screws are removed from the bottom outside corners of the control panel..

SOURCE: Hotpoint Wf 541 how to remove top and front facia

To remove the Top you need to pop small torx covers on each side at the top (near to front). Then unscrew the torx each side. the top will then slide back about 5mm.

Once the top is opened you will have a major task of removing all cables from control unity behind facia and the holding screws. Depending on the damage to the button/plastic you may be able to pop the button into place. It is also possible you may need to order a new control unit from hotpoint. I believe you can order online for minimum hassle.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Control Panel Installation

in some instances there is either a set screw(generally a small allen head) or a small pin that has to be forced out. these keep the knob from spinning on the shaft and stripping it.

How to remove the control unit on a hotpoint wm62 washing machine please

The main control unit on the WM62 is at the top behind the user facia control panel. If you remove the lid you should get relative easy access to it. If memory serves, there are 2 wee plastic plug to remove on the SIDES of the top lid, ease them out with a flat screw driver, then you need a torx T20 screwdriver to remove the screws behind the plug. The lid should now be removed with a gentle knock forward from the rear of the lid. Remove the soap drawer and you will see a few more screws, remove these and the 2 screws on the top of the Facia, the control unit is now easily removed.

How do I replace the light bulb behind the heater selection knob

The panel in front (facia panel) should snap off. If not there are only a couple of screws holding it on. From there it is just a few screws away from replacement.

The part that controls the water level is broke

You didnt give a model number, but I will assume it is a top loader with a level selector knob. Is the stem still visible, or did everything break off? You can remove the facia panel with the phillips head screws on each end, and by removing the program selector knobs by pulling straight out. The level selector is fairly simple to replace. there should be two wires and a clear rubber tube. get your new part from an appliance part store ( less than 30 dollars). unplug the machine, and transfer the wires to the new part one at a time keeping them in exactly the same place. undo the hose clamp ( if present, sometimes just held on by pressure fit) and connect the pressure tube to the new level switch. re assemble the facia panel, plug the machine back in, and give it a test.

How do i fit a drive belt on a hotpoint tumble drier

Hi, To fit the belt to your dryer you will need to remove the top of the appliance by removing the screws at the rear. Pull of the timer/control knob. Look inside the top of the t/dryer behind the control panel you will see little plastic stems which are attached to the facia panel. You need to knock these out to remove the facia. Once this is off then you can remove the the top 3 screws and the bottom 3 screws the front panel will now come off for you to place the belt on the drum and over the motor spindle. Becareful as the t/dryer will be very loose and will twist. it is easier to lay the appilance down on its back to stop everything falling about. Now you can put it back together in the reverse order....
Good luck.............
