HOTPOINT WASHING MACHINE - BELT IS RUBBING AGAINST BACK OF DRUM & WEARING BELT + INTO PLASTIC DRUM CASING. I HAVE TRIED MOVING THE BELT TO THE FRONT EDGE OF THE MOTOR PULLEY DRIVE, BUT AFTER A FEW SPINS, IT JUST CREAPS TO THE VERY BACK ON THE DRUM WHEEL AND RUBS AGAINST THE BACK OF THE DRUM? THERE DOES NOT SEEM ANY ADJUSTMENT FOR THE ALIGNMENT OF THE DRUM WHEEL OR THE MOTOR DRIVE POSITION? ANY IDEAS PLEASE?

If you have gotten that far your good
now try to look at the motor it sounds like your belt might be a lil off track on the mortor shaft
there is a adjustment srew on the top left of the motro its hidden under things but its there
you can looses this and swing the motor
make sure you have it lined up on the motor shaft and it should stay aligned on the pully

The drum bearing has very likely failed and seized.

If the outer drum is polypropylene (plastic) then the bearing cannot realistically be replaced and the entire drum assembly needs changing. This is not usually cost effective unless you can find a suitable used donor drum from another broken machine. Even then, it's usually better to use your machine to donate the parts needed by the other unit.

If the outer drum is steel then the bearing can be replaced if you can get the spare part, but the drum must be completely removed to do so and it's a major job. The old bearing needs to be drifted out (I use a short off-cut of scaffold pole) and the new one needs drifting back in. (Drifting means using a heavy hammer and a suitable object or "drift" to place against the item and spread the load evenly. The hammer hits the drift, not the work item). If you have to drill out spot welds in the washing machine casing to separate the outer panels in order to remove the drum (common) then you can use pop rivets afterwards to reassemble it. Note that you will probably need to replace the drive belt as well, but try using the old one first unless it's clearly been damaged.

Bearing replacement is a major job and due to the extensive labour costs and risks of the job failing a professional usually just changes the entire drum assembly, but anyone good with car repairs should have the tools and experience necessary to do this on a DIY basis. The bearing itself is usually quite cheap and if Hotpoint can't supply it you should be able to take the old one to a specialist bearing shop and obtain a direct equivalent.

Good luck and please take a moment to rate my reply.

Bra wire stuck between the drums in hotpoint WD440 Aquarius washer dryer


Look all around the inner tub with a torch , if you spot the wire sticking through grasp it firmly with pliers and pull out , dont let it go , if it slips completely between drums it is more difficult to get to.

During the spin cycle basket vibrates very badly - very rough


I had a similar problem. During the final high spin and there was POW and the drum went funky eating into the plastic. I opened the back of the washer and look things over,.The belt for spinning was intact. I set the washer on a drain/spin option and watched from the front and back. While watching the pulley on the drum and could tell there was a hiccup as it went around. I pulled the pulley off and put on a new pulley. The new pulley was going in a perfect circle to spin the drum. It's not a hard repair, just need a little muscle to loosen the nut holding the pulley on and the same muscle to tighten the nut as much as possible. Hope this helps.

How do i change the brushes on my wf250 hotpoint aquarius machine


your machine may have a 'brushless' motor. but generally hotpoint motor brushes are fixed with 2 screws and are in ablack plastic cover and can be seen if you tip your machine back against a wall and look underneath. the motor being at the bottom of the drum, you could remove them wuth a long magnetic screwdriver.

The tripping can either be down to a short circuit drawing too much current and blowing the fuse , or an earth leakage blowing an RCD. You can eliminate the motor when it happen again , by unplugging it and see if the fuse blows (without turning the drum). Most likely is the heater , but i cannot explain why turning the drum allows it to continue. It is possible a wire is rubbing somewhere on the drum pulley , motor or casing. If the machine will immediately trip again if you don't move the drum , try isolating parts by disconnecting and then retrying.

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating


I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.
