Changing bushes on a hotpoint wd63

My washer would not go round, got stuck in a cycle, the bushes have been removed and they are much worn down. we have bought more which cost £30 but my husband is having trouble getting the bottom bush screws in the holes as you can not see where they go as it is under the motor and the motor is even worse to take off, any solutions how to do this?

There is a screwdriver that you may need to buy that has a retainer on it to hold the screw in place while you attempt to seat it in the hole. Here in the States we call the place to buy one of these the Hardware Store. There must be a store where you can explain the tool you need based upon my description.

After you replace the bushes for the machine you will want to replace the bushes for the motor as well. So, the motor will have to come off now or sooner than you realize. When one goes the other is soon to follow. So, while you have everything apart and are in the midst of it all you may as well do the motor while your at it.

I also assume you were able to manually move the machine and it is not seized by frozen bushings or bearings.

Hope this helped and fixed ya.

Spin cycle not draining


Hi-ya Brian
Probably blocked filter.
To locate and clean, remove rear panel altogether, locate large black hose at bottom of drum, remove from drum, and you will find the filter located inside the hose.
Check drain hose is not blocked also.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

Door wont open on my hotpoint aquarius washer/dryer


Turn the dryer dial to off, making sure you can hear it click off, wait 1 min, and then try door. If it will still not open then you may have faulty door lock, or a prob with the door handle.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
