The easyest way to fit these belts is to locate it on the motor pulley and as far onto the right hand side of the main pulley (viewed from the front of the machine) as possible. Hold it on the main pulley with a cable tie and rotate the drum anti clockwise by turning it from inside. The belt will be drawn onto the pulley and the cable tie will snap as it rotates. (Easy)

Take the bottom panel at the back of the machine off , remove the top cover by taking out the two screws at the back and strike the front sides with palm of hand forcing lid backwards. The motor pulley is located at the bottom left ( viewed from behind) the drum pulley is located central at the back (viewed from the front ) heat the belt for about 3 mins in a basin of very hot water , then feed it on to the motor pulley and up on to the drum . From the front of the machine start feeding the belt on to the drum from the right , there are spokes on the drum pulley so reach down from the right and pull up, this will require a bit of effort but in a couple of turns the belt is in place . Good luck and I hope this works out for you!

Door locked no light to say locked no washing action on hotpoint wf430


Brusheson motor will be worn. The door lock is in series with the motor so if brushes worn it interrupts the signal telling the board the door is locked. New brushes will likely be all it needs.

What's your problem?i am trying to fit a drive belt to a hotpoint wma66p washing machine but cant stretch it around motor pulley and drum. i cant see a tensioner bolt. is there one?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is no tensioner bolt as such; tension is just maintained by the motor support bolts. Please see my notes on belt changes ;-0)

The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT AGAINST THE MOTOR OR FRAME; THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The washer is washing the motor is telling machine to spin but drum not going round


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping or the motor is malfunctioning.
Belt first.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!

If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had. New motors are not cheap, though. It's your choice!

Good luck,
John C

Need to change driving belt?


Disconnect the Washing machine power cord from the wall.

lay over the washing machine carefully towards the washing machine door and prop up securely or put up on blocks so you can get adequate access to replace belt, there is no access from the back, you will have to get access from underneath. be carefull.

There is a bolt that needs slacking off so you can get the new belt on (adjustment - Tensioned) this is usually on the electric motor, do not completely remove, only slacken to give adequate room to put new belt on. once you have the new belt on, take up the slack and tighten the bolt. do not over tighten the belt, allow the belt when on to move sideways about one finger width.

Replace belt on Hotpoint Aquarius WM31 washing


Hi.
Remove top cover of washer.
Remove rear access panel.
Slacken off the motor fixing bolts, and pull motor towards drum top.
Fit belt round motor pulley first, and then feed it round the drum pulley from the rear of the washer.
Tighten motor bolts just enough to hold motor steady, and pull motor towardsa cabinet side to tension belt, it needs to be farly tight.
Then tighten motor bolts securely.
Fit back top and rear covers.
