I have a Hotpoint Aqualtis wash/dryer which stopped working with a 'F12' fault. Now when I turn the socket on I get an immediate really loud whir/buzz.


possibly the main drive belt has either snapped or jumped off the pulley and this allows you to turn easily by hand the whir/buzz sounds like system in coming into play but with no belt to drive nothing more happens, the front lower portion of the machine could be the water pump working overtime unable to drain ???

How do i fit a belt to a hotpoint wf541g washing machine? The belt does not want to stretch around the drum wheeel and motor pulley.


You cannot stretch a belt. There should be a bolt on the motor that you can loosen to allow the motor to pivot, allowing you to easily install the belt.

Replace belt on Hotpoint Aquarius WM31 washing


Hi.
Remove top cover of washer.
Remove rear access panel.
Slacken off the motor fixing bolts, and pull motor towards drum top.
Fit belt round motor pulley first, and then feed it round the drum pulley from the rear of the washer.
Tighten motor bolts just enough to hold motor steady, and pull motor towardsa cabinet side to tension belt, it needs to be farly tight.
Then tighten motor bolts securely.
Fit back top and rear covers.

My Hotpoint Aqualtis AQXXD 169 PM is adding time to the was cycle, taking longer to wash through the cycle? ant ideas?


the time is a generic time and will adjust accordingly as goes through programe-for example it allows a certain time to heat in the winter your cold supply may be colder so the machine needs longer to heat water-load size-if its adding more than 30 mins then check filter

Am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not


Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.
