Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 Front Load Washer
Had a problem with the fuse tripping whenever the washing machine was on (particularly when power went to heater element). On investigation I saw the external connector to the heater element was broken resulting in the inside of the element touching the element casing. I got a new element however I am unsure how to replace. Is it a case of using a little force to pull it out (slip a screw driver behind it and force it out), and slip in the new one, or do I have to open up the main drum. Any help greatly appreciated.
Hi there, this heater can be a bit fiddly but can be fitted from the back first remove the 10 or possible 8mm nut from the heater and all wires then with a pair of pliars grip one of the terminals and pull the heater 2-3" out then with a small flat head screwdriver start to prise the rubber seal out all the way round until the heater drops out don't be scared to use a bit of force on the seal as your new heater comes compleate with new seal
hope this is of some help murdozzz
