Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It has come off for a reason but don't just put it back on- purchase a replacement!
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

    However all the other information was very good.

    Ah, makes it difficult, doesn't it! The top must come off on your model, sorry. I wrongly assumed that as you could see it had come off ,you had removed the 'back' ;-0(

My machine won't spin. The belt is OK. Any ideas? Brushes possibly? Thanks, Ian


Could be brushes, only way to be certain is to remove motor and check them for wear.
Replace if less than 4 or 5mm long.
Could also be blocked pump filter.
To check , remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open


Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

This usually indicates that the sensor which determines that the door is shut properly could be faulty.

My WMA33 does this occasionally. I manually push the door in and up slightly with my knee - and then start the wash cycle. This seems to work every time.

Failing that you will need to replace the door sensor. A call to hotpoint may help.

Hotpoint wma 34 front loader will not spin


Open the rear panel and check for a broken belt and whether the motor spins. In case both are OK it could be a bad capacitor issue as well. Good luck!
