Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Hotpoint Ultima WT761 Washing machine. The belt has not broken but is damaged and the edge is stripping off. It has come off the drum and motor spindle. Clearly its time to get a new one which I will do tomorrow. However as a practice I tried to refit it and its very short and "impossible" to get back on. There is no elasticity in it. Do new belts have more give in them, or is there some trick to refitting? It didn't look like unbolting the motor, fitting it and then refitting the motor was that practical. Thanks in advance!

Not absolutely sure of your exact model, but most washer belts on put on by putting them on the motor the stretching to the tub pulley and holding it there while you move the pulley which then stretches the belt to fit for you.

SOURCE: REFITTING THE BELT ON HOTPOINT WMA 40

Place it on the motor pulley and then guide it around the drum pulley. It will have come off for a reason which if you do not correct will cause it to come off again. Lay it flat on a table - if it does not lay flat - replace it. Check the pulley on the drum does not move from side to side. (problem with pulley or drum bearings)

Remove rear panel, remove top cover,.tilt washer forwards, get someone to hold it for you, and fit belt round motor pulley first, then start feeding it round drum pulley, easing drum round at same time, it will be tight, so watch you fingers,
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Ultima Wt761 is displaying F-08 what can

First, try turning off the mains power to the machine for 30 minutes and switching it back on to see if the error persists. This indicates a problem with the heater relay or heater. This usually means that the relay cannot be operated due to a heater fault and that the heater will need replacing. A service call to replace it will be the quickest option.

Sounds like your water pressure switch is faulty. You can replace this easily by removing the top panel, the part is round and about 2-3 inches diameter, it has a thin pipe connected to it that goes to the tub and 2 or 3 wires plugged onto it. H20 normally means not filling but sounds like the switch is faulty. Hope this helps

My hotpoint ultima wt761 door catch has broken how can i open the door


If you have a broken door catch you can get the door open by feeding some garden wire around the right hand outside of the door (between the door and the metal casing of the washing machine).

Once you've fed it in round the top right and bottom right curved corners pull the two ends of the wire to the left, so that the wire pulls against the lock mechanism, and the catch should release.

Hi I have a hotpoint washing machine model wt761 and it has stopped working, it will not drain. The display is showing an error code F-05. Can you help me please.


You have a blockage not allowing the drum to empty.
Check for blockages via the pump filter and the hoses
F05 means blocked pressure switch
If it still won't work come back to me
