SOURCE: How to remove top panel and front facia on a Hotpoint Aquarius WDF451 washing machine

This is for everyone out there who has a Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 and has trouble removing the top to replace the drive belt. Ignore all the tips you've had in the past as they are innacurate. It is actually quite easy to remove the top. Once you have removed the two rear screws you will be able to lift the lid up from the back, but only a couple of inches or so as it is attached to the front panel by clips. THERE IS NO NEED TO TRY REMOVING THE FRONT PANEL. The top panel actually comes off by moving it back towards the rear of the machine. However the clips are quite tight. All you have to do is go round to the front of the washing maching and give the top a firm tap backwards with the heel of your hand. Don't worry about hitting it firmly as you won't break it. It will come off the clips and hey presto, the top is free. It is as easy as that.

I spent a day and a half trying to get the top off our machine until a friend showed me how it was done. I felt a right tw*t as you will now I've told you the solution.

Replacing the belt is quite tricky. You will have to get someone to help you hold the drum forward as far as possible while you put the belt back in place on the wheel and spigot. You will see that the bottom spigot is notched to take the belt. However, it is much wider than the belt and finding the corrrect position is tricky. It's a case of trial and error, I'm afraid. Place the belt on the bottom spigot (roughly central) and then thread it onto the top wheel. If it is too far over one way and catches the plastic drum you will have to take it off, move it forward a notch and try again. You will probably not have to purchase another belt. Ours came off, didn't look at all worn, so I placed it back on and it has gone okay ever since.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my hotpoint aquarius wd440 has flashing lights

First of all try cleaning the filter inside the back as described by others if this does not work there is a filter in the top. how you clean this is quite easy. all you do is remove the top of the machine by undoing the 2 screws at the back then pull top top backwards when you have removed the top you well see a large metal casing on the left if you are looking from the the back of the machine the filter is in there to remove the casing you pull the small pipe off then undo 5 star headed screws then gently pull the casing off noteing that there is a large pipe at the front when you have remover the casing you will see the filter (the small pipe you removed at the start fits on this filter) clean the filter then put it all back together.

Aquarius DWF32 and dealing with water softner

Good idea to check levels yourself, but wear rubber gloves as dishwasher salt will leave your hands very sore, simply remove cover from salt tank, using a wooden spoon handle or similar check salt level and refill if required, replace tank lid, never wait for warning lights, they may never come on, good luck.

Hotpoint Aquarius model number WF340P all lights are flashing

First, you need to stop the power to the appliance and wait 2 minutes before re-energizing; this many times resets the logic board and removes crazy actions. 2nd, are all the lights flashing continuously or are they flashing several times then pausing and flashing they same several times again? If they flash nonstop, this may indicate a control board failure. If they flash a certain number of times, this would indicate a fault occurance at some item in the appliance. Your owners manual would usually show this list of flash codes in the trouble shoot section. If you do not have a manual , Call GE (general-electric) and ask to have a manual sent to you; you could also ask about the flash code meaning since this is becoming a more and more prevelant problem and manufactures have been educating their phone help people to know some of these standard answers.
Good luck, Macgivor

On my Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 1000 spin there are two lights flashing, one of them is the Time Delay ligh and the other is the Crease Reduction light, does anyone know why this might be occuring?

Try this out, it's for another hotpoint model:
The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. In side is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats in side. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Would be good to check out the pump too
