Re: hotpoint washing machine belt come off

U need to take the lid off and keep the small panel off now 2 ways u can do it 1)undue the botls on the motor just enough so u can move the motor now put the belt around the pulley wheel by placing your hand through the small panel once done put the belt around the motor wheel now last thing pull motor so it tightens the belt and tighten the bolts on the motor 2)place the belt around the wheel on the motor now with your other hand put the belt on 1 side of the big pulley wheel and hold it in place as u turn the pulley wheel it will slide on but with tension once on spin the pulley wheel and it will line up the belt

My hotpoint washing machine wma64 will not spin

Dear Blaze,

Here is a link for a service manual Hotpoint WMA64 Installation And User Instructions Manual

The drum motor, its brushes, the belt, or idler arm roller, and the drum roller bearings can all be suspect. Here is a link that supports the statement Hotpoint Ultima Extra Wma64 Drum Not Turning E32 Fault Code Hotpoint...

Here is some conversation not relevant to your statement but maybe associated later on Faulty Hotpoint WMA64 DIYnot com DIY and Home Improvement .

I suggest when it is repaired to do a service wash to clear the drum of buildup.

Fare. Well.

Need to replace drive belt on hotpoint wf430 but to tight to get

Put it on the motor spindle first then feed it onto pulley. It is tricky with such limited access.
Hope this helps &thanks for using Fixya.

My washer wont spin....

Plug off the wall socket; open up behind the machine, your belt may have come off. Put it on back on the wheel, the belt should 'give' half an inch, if it is more, replace with new. While inserting the belt, it should first be fitted on the small wheel, then eased on to the bigger one, by turning by hand the big wheel

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.
