Remove rear cover, and you will see the concrete weight at the bottom, sometimes the securing nuts work loose, or break off.
There is also a concete weight in the top of the washer as well,so check this as well

Hi ive got a wf840 washer and its got noisey lately so ive had a look and it feels as if the drum inside has came loose so i took the top of to have a look and there seems no way in to tighten it up the...


There is no adjustment provided for adjusting or tightening drum.
The drum is held in place by 2 springs at the top of the drum,
Sometimes these can break
At the bottom end, the drum is fastened to the base of the washer by 2 shock absorbers, these can break loose or wear.
These can all be replaced with out removing the interior drum assy.
The other possibility is that the drum bearings have failed, this would also make it very noisy.

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64


Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

Hoptpoint WD64 appears to be leaking. Puddle appears an hour or two after cycle completes as expected. Any ideas why / any maintenance I can undertake to resolve?


If leak is occuring after wash is finished I would suspect a leaking outlet pipe joint around the pump as water will still be present in that area. If it is a leaking joint it may just need tightening, but to help it, only if you wish to, disassemble the joint and apply some instant gasket, type used in automotive assembly, and reassemble the joint and tighten. DON'T USE SILICONE SEALER as you may want to get the joint apart at a future date.

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok


Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wd64 front load washer-dryer filter


if your hotpoint has no obvious filter its likely to be the type that has the filter built into the main exit hose from the drum to the pump. Clearing these is not as easy.Pull machine out and unplug it, on the rear there is a panel at the bottom which when removed you will see the pump where the exit hose attaches. From the pump to the drum is normally a wider black pipe and this contains the filter. removal of the pipe from the bottom of the drum is normally a jubilie clip but some have plastic clips that are easy to break. once you have dropped the pipe from the drum ( water goes everywhere ) you can then remove the white filter assembly which is like a shuttle **** with ping pong ball in it. clean out fully and make sure its all back together as before.

Hotpoint belt pulley won't tighten back up


You must have the belt routed wrong. Pulley should be pushing up on belt to tension it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Banging washing machine on spins


Hi. I don't know if your problem has been sorted yet, if it has not ,then it sounds to me llke the concrete balance weight is loose or broken

There are 2 of them, one in the top of the m/c, and one at the bottom, if either of them are loose, then that is your problem.

If loose, can be tightened up, if broken away from the drum then you have a major problem

My Hotpoint washer dryer WD865 moves around the room making loud noises when on a fast spin? The internal drum seems more loose than normal?


I had the same problem. You can open the top lid (2 screws at the back and then lift) The weight which is on top is secured by three bolts, all three of them were loose so weight was going from one side to another which made a terrible noise. Tightened the bolts and noise was gone!
Dryer still not working though.....

mits86 , you are correct - it could be the 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!

Please dont forget to rate me as fixya.
