You say seems to be ok.....can you hold the belt and turn the drum? Is there more that 3/4" slack in belt when you push it side ways? How old is this machine and have you ever had it serviced?

In the spin cycle at high rpm's the drum is making a load noise. Is it he drum belt? If so how can I replace it? I can't find a cutsheet on the parts list.


Hi there
Before you startreplacing partsin the machine, observe weather the washing is evenly distributed in the drum when it is working.
If the washing is not evenly distributed, there is a lot of noise and the drum does not go its rounds evenly.
good luck

Our bosch washing machine is about 9 years old and won't drain properly. The "end" light flashes as if the drain is blocked but it's not. If we manually drain the machine we can get onto...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As you do not mention 'filter' I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Drum not going round


Hi Friend,
welcome to fixya....
may be the drum belt is the fault, Here are some possible causes of a washing machine belt coming off :-


1.The drum pulley is loose

2.The drum bearings have gone (collapsed) causing the drum pulley to wobble
3.The drive belt was to slack
4.A motor fixing bolt or bracket securing the motor to the tub has broken or come loose
5.Water has got onto the belt causing slippage
6.An obstruction or item of clothing temporarily jammed the drum causing the belt to spin off ,,,,,,,,,,,,

first check whether it is hard to turn the drum if not then check the above situations,,,ok


if you think that i helped you please rate it\\\\\\\\

Belt seems to tight cant attach drom to moter


To check to see if the drum is free, spin the drum by hand, there should be no resistane at all.
If there is, then it could be the drum bearings are siezed, or there could be something stuck between the inner and outer drum.
If drum is free, then try again, they are tight to fit, I assume you have right size belt?

Drum not spinning & springs wrong way round?


To replace the belt hold in place on motor & feed onto pulley. The springs are on correctly but it seems one of the suspension legs is not doing its job. This may have occured when turning upside down & would explain distorted door seal. Thanks again for using fixya.

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating


I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.
