Hello mam
before trying please check the belt tension. and if you inspect the threads are visible on the belt which will be seated on the pully please change the belt and to put it back
1.plase the belt into the motor pully first. and then using a screwdriver hold the belt into the drum pully slowly rotate the drum as you rotate the drum you should hold the belt along the pully.

Hotpoint aquarius ctd00 tumble dryer...everything working but drum wont turn


it looks like you need to put the belt back on which is inside the machine. to do this open the lid with screws on back take lid off then you should see the belt inside the machine and where is was before on the drum of the machine. slip it back on and put lid back on and it should start turning again. hope this helps.

Washing machine


  • if it is neither draining noe spinning check If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

    Need to change tumble belt


    REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

    To do the belt...
    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 caps 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.
    If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

    6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(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.

    REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
    - If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

    How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 ?


    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.
