You should be able to do both without disturbing the motor.

To do the brushes - about half an hour...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Tip the machine carefully up so you can get to the underside
4. Pull cables off the existing brushes.
5. Remove the brushes with a cross head screwdriver. Each brush as two screws holding in on, but the brushes are keyed into the motor chassis. They are fiddly.

To do the belt. + as long as your patience lasts...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic cap on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel. To pop the belt off, turn the wheel forcing the belt to the edge of the wheel. It will eventually come off.
6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

SOURCE: I don't have any heat from my hotpoint aquarius ctd40G tumble dry

Remove the rear cover and you will see the element and stats, you will need a meter to test them.
Pull one wire off each thermostat and with a meter that beeps, test across each thermostat, if they are o/k, then the meter will beep,
if no beep then no good.
Replace all heater stats, even if only one has gone
If the stats are o/k then you will have to check the heater, this is more involved as it entails removing the top cover and left side panel looking at the dryer from the rear.
Unplug the heater lead, and again test with meter,if element o/k, then prob is timer or main pcb could be faulty, it really does get quite involved.
There is also a thermistor at the front of the dryer, that is part of the heating circuit.
Plz rate my solution.
Thnks.

SOURCE: tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin

Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: my hotpoint aquarius wd440 has flashing lights

First of all try cleaning the filter inside the back as described by others if this does not work there is a filter in the top. how you clean this is quite easy. all you do is remove the top of the machine by undoing the 2 screws at the back then pull top top backwards when you have removed the top you well see a large metal casing on the left if you are looking from the the back of the machine the filter is in there to remove the casing you pull the small pipe off then undo 5 star headed screws then gently pull the casing off noteing that there is a large pipe at the front when you have remover the casing you will see the filter (the small pipe you removed at the start fits on this filter) clean the filter then put it all back together.

Hotpoint aquarius 1000 (wma50p) not taking in water, and i cannot move the drum by hand.


Hello, it sounds like the main motor has blown. This causes the pump to stop as it is connected to the pulleys and gearbox. The only solution is replacing the main motor. Even though it sounds expensive, it should only cost around $100 plus fitting.

Drum not going round


Hi Friend,
welcome to fixya....
may be the drum belt is the fault, Here are some possible causes of a washing machine belt coming off :-


1.The drum pulley is loose

2.The drum bearings have gone (collapsed) causing the drum pulley to wobble
3.The drive belt was to slack
4.A motor fixing bolt or bracket securing the motor to the tub has broken or come loose
5.Water has got onto the belt causing slippage
6.An obstruction or item of clothing temporarily jammed the drum causing the belt to spin off ,,,,,,,,,,,,

first check whether it is hard to turn the drum if not then check the above situations,,,ok


if you think that i helped you please rate it\\\\\\\\

Hotpoint WF220P has become very noisy during spin, especially at high revs. Can it be worn brushes or motor, or bearings? Otherwise all is OK.


Remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, could be a motor prob.

Thanks.

The motor does not have provision for belt adjostment, it is self tensioning
To gain access to the brushes, you need to remove the motor from the washer.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, unplug motor lead, taking note which way the plug goes,undo screws securing motor, and lever motor back with a screw driver, remove motor and change brushes.
