Getting inside my washer

My Hotpoint washer needs a new belt. It doesn't look like I should take the botton off. I think the top lifts up and then the front comes down. Is there someone who can explain how to get inside this washer?

Hotpoint washer will not agitate. How do test the time? the lid switch is OK.


Check the belt and motor brushes. Belt may have come off or snapped and if motor brushes are getting worn they may not be making enough contact in the motor to make it agitate.

L have a hotpoint model vwsr31101ww toploading washer. it has stopped agitating l think it needs a new belt how do l fix it?


Remove the front panel by inserting a putty knife or similar tool in between the top and front panel about 3 inches in from each side and push inward on the fasteners while lifting on the top, the top should release from the front panel at this point, lift up and towards you on the front panel, this should remove it.
Now look under the tub where the motor and pulleys are to find the belt,you should be able to study and figure out the removal and replacement of it at this time. Good luck !

My wfooo hotpoint washing machine doesnt spin, the belt came off i put it back on but then it snapped when i put the washer on spin, will the washer being empty when i did this affect the belt?


Think your belt was allready on the way out and you will need a new one. Just a coincedence that it broke when it did. It came off because it was worn and stretched.

How to lift the lid on our top loading GE washer


It does just lift up but it is held in place with clips that are forced into openings so you have to use some force to separate the two.

slide a putty knife in the crack and work it around. as you do so it will start to open for you.

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Fitting a new drive belt to a hotpoint aquarius


Remove lower rear panel, tilt washer forward, getting someone to help, and fit belt round motor pulley, then fit belt round drum pulley, slowly turning the drum pulley round as you feed the belt on, it is very tight, and you might think the belt is to small, but this is normal, as the belt stretches, just persist, but be careful you do not trap your fingers. Good luck.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer model tdc30p belt replacement


You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the front panel with the door, mark and remove the wires to the door switch, then there should be two screws on the inside which you will need to remove then tilt the panel out and lift to disengage the tabs connecting it to the main cabinet. Then you should be able to remove the old belt, carefully lift the drum and slide the new belt under it. Then this is where you will need to be a contortionist and take care as there are many sharp edges under there. Locate the motor and tensioner pulley, place the belt around the tensioner and while pushing back against the spring on the tensioner hook the belt to the motor pulley, then move belt on drum so it is aligned with lower pulleys. Turn the drum by hand a couple of times to make sure everything works.

I am trying to fit a new drum belt on a hotpoint aquarius vtdoo reverse action


You need to remove the top cover, remove the right hand side panel,ease the drum forward and fit the new belt.
It is very difficult to fit the new belt without the proper tool avialable from Hotpoint.
It can be done without the tool, but be prepared to stuggle
