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: lights flashing / flickering on face on controls-machine not work

This is normally a signal that is for a control fault. you will need to pull the power and shut this unit down for 5 minute.. if the unit continues to flash after this reset, you will need to replace the control board/timer in this case. it has failed.

SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

SOURCE: How do I change the door boot seal on a Hotpoint Aquarius WMA31N?

Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.

By switch board, I assume you mean the control module.
If you go to Hotpoint's web site, you should be able to locate the part you require.

The only advice I can give is to turn the appliance off and remove the plug from the power socket for at least one minute then plug it back in and try it again. These machines have 3 phase motors and the heat sink on the module retains an electric charge for some time after the appliance has been switched off so be mindful if you decide to venture into the inside of the cabinet.

Iv got the hotpoint wt960 and it keeps saying test and will not wash anything


Your machine has gone into service engineer 'test' mode as you have pushed a couple of buttons together by mistake. Go through this sequence .. Switch Off. Switch On (all LCD lights flash). Press Start/Cancel button (LCD panel now reads On). Together press the 3 ON/OFF STARTCANCEL and SPIN buttons like you would CTRL-ALT-DEL on a PC. The screen will show "DOFF". This means you are now out of test mode and back into normal operating mode. This happened to me and I was talked thru the sequence over the phone by the Hotpoint service assistant Emma - brilliant and free.

Hotpoint washing machine Aquarius WD640


Try this sequence; Hold down start and cancel button together, TEST should disappear of display,
Then hold down START/ CANCEL, and ON/OFF at the same time.
The message D/off should appear in the display, it should then work.
If it does not then the main pcb is likely to be faulty..
That will mean calling an engineer.
Pleas rate my fixya solution.
Thankyou.

If you by accident press the start button and the cancel button at the same time it puts the washer into demo mode.To switch it off press both buttons at the same time and hold until dEND is displayed. Sometimes you have to keep trying but it will work, it did with mine ok.
