Basically you have to open up the rear access panel and first place the belt on the motor and then starting from the right hand of the drive wheel, place onto it and hold with your hand whilst turing the drum wheel with the other hand and this gradually should put it back on. Just like you put a bicycle chain on.

    Be patient and protect your hands with gloves, forearms need protecting too.

You are doing the right thing. Hook the belt onto the motor pulley, then onto the main pulley as far as it will go, use a few cable ties to hold it on the pulley and turn the drum anti clockwise, the cable ties will snap as the pulley turns. Hotpoint have made a tool for putting these belts on but you woudn't want to pay out just for one belt.Belt fitting Diagram link

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.

The drive belt has come off my Hotpoint WF860 washing machine

remove the lid and the lower back panel.
loop the belt over the motor shaft from the top and then half over the drum pulley. turn the pulley slowly while holding the belt to it until its fully on, you can also put a cable tie to hold it if it's easier for you as the are tight. the tie will break off when the belt is on fully. its a bit like putting a bicycle chain back on.

Drum wont turn

sounds to me like the belt may have fallen off the back of the drum.
look under the lid and see. if a wd, should be simple enoughto put it back on by removing the back cover to refit.
turn the power off though.
