Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You might find that it is not a pin but a support which is part of the motor's casing which in turn is fitted into the plastic-lined hole. The motor is able to be rotated for adjustment by it. Try twisting the motor around and it should become free to then PUSH with a blunt object at the same time PULLING the motor out (probably backwards) carefully ;-0)
Good luck!

    I think there are lots of people out there who are not happy with their washer's manufacturer and at least I was able to explain to you how it is mounted! The only 'easier way' would have been if the manufacturer had greased the shaft before fitting for the benefit of people like us - had similar problem with our 19+ year-old Bosch but I then greased ours before putting it back ;-0)

My brushes on my aquarius wma54 need replacing,where is the motor and how do i change the brushes.what type of motor is it

The motor is located at the bottom rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel, unplug lead into motor,, remove earth wire.
Remove 2 bolts holding motor to drum, lever motor away from you to remove.
Brushes are located at the end furthest away from the pulley.
There has been more than 1 type of motor fitted to this model, so until you remove the motor, you will not know which brushes you need.

Hotpoint aquarius wd420 cannot stretch drive belt on there is no slide bar on motor which is fixed solid even after bolts are lossened its a washer drier no obvious way of attaching belt

There is no adjustment provided for tensioning belt as it is a stretch belt.
Best way to do it is to remove the rear panel, tilt the weaher forwards, get someone to hold it for you.
Put belt round motor pulley first, then slowiy feed it round the drum pulley, turning the drum pulley at the same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, just keep going until belt is on, if it comes off, just start over
You can line it up properly in the motor pulley grooves once you have got the belt on.
Please rate my solution.

How do you remove the brushes from the motor?

You need to remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Remove the drive belt.
Unplug motor lead, and pull off earth wire.
Undo 2 bolts securing the motor to the tub.
Lever back the motor, and keeping a grip on the motor lift out of washer.

The brushes are located at the oppisite end to the pulley, they will probably be enclosed in black plastic holders, but you cannot mistake them, as they each have a wire going to them.
Hope this helps.

Am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not

Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.
