How do I refit the belt on my hotpoint aquarius wma46s


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(providing yours is front loading?)
The quick answer is 'DON'T'! Purchase a replacement and fit that 'cos the old one will only come off again!
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT AGAINST THE MOTOR OR FRAME; THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!


If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washing machine doesn't want to spin. The belt is not in place.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63 Not Spinning Clicking Programmer


I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Aquarius 1100 wm63 very noisy spinning


Remove rear cover of washer.
Remove drive belt.
From inside the drum, spin the drum by hand, if it is noisy or feels rough, then main drum bearings have failed.
If no noise, then possibly motor bearings noisy.
Hope this helps Thankyou.

The belts come off, its a hotpoint aquarius wm63.


Remove the complete rear panel of m/c if it is a washer dryer, you will see the drum pulley in the center, and the motor pulley is at the top of the m/c
Put belt round motor pulley first, and feed belt round drum pulley.
If it is a washer on its own, remove the small center cover at rear of washer, and remove top cover also.

Put belt round motor pulley first and carefully feed belt round drum pulley, you will find this easier to do if you unhook the rear retaining spring.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.

How to cahnge carbon brushes


The brushes usually "come complete with brush-holders", which is a way of selling you something extra that you don't need. Easiest way is to disconnect the machine from the power and the water, turn it onto its front on an old cardboard box and remove the motor from its mountings on the washer. You can usually get acces to one of the brushes really easily and the other is guaranteed to be a real pig, so keep it simple. The brush-holders are usually fastened to the motor casing with either self-tapping screws or small bolts.

I buy my brushes from Ebay sellers and always send them a digital photo of the old brush together with the make and serial number off the motor itself, just to be sure. Brushes can look similar and be that silly millimetre too short, or long, or wide.

Did that answer the question? If not, add a comment and I'll expand further as necessary. Cheers, D.

Hotpoint aquarius 1100


yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them
