SOURCE: leaking door seal on hotpoint aquarius

Where in the world are you?

If you are in the UK, I can recommend a supplier of spare parts for all manner of household appliances, white goods etc.

http://www.espares.co.uk/

If you are not in the UK, maybe they deliver elsewhere but I am certain there are many, many similar websites worldwide.

I have used these people for a Servis washing machine door seal, Electrolux vacuum cleaner bags, flame sensor device for my old Creda gas cooker and other things and found them very reasonable.
They provide a rating for the level of competence requried to do the job, 'one spanner' is very easy and 'four spanners' requires someone with much more practical ability. My own washing machine door seal was 'three spanners'.

I hope this helps - good luck!

Chris.

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.

Remove the lid and loosen the band internally holding gasket to tub, from the top. The front come off easily once the retaining band is removed. Just reversed the process to put on the new rubber.

SOURCE: need to fit door seal hotpoint aquarius wf220p

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

How do i remove the drum from a Hotpoint Aquarius WML 560 P


Hi,
There is not much you can do to remove the drum of your WML 560 P Washing Machine...you can remove the bearings and door but you can't remove the drum personally. You'll have to take it in for service but here is a manual for you which you can read through to see if there is anything about removing the drum.

How to remove the detergent dispenser drawer aquarius WML 520


Instructions for the machine, and specifically the detergent dispenser drawer, are here:

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/70853/Hotpoint-Wml-520.html?page=10#manual



It does NOT show how to remove the drawer. It is likely that the top of the machine must be "popped off" to do so. The best advise is to search for a Repair Manual if you simply must get the drawer out. I believe one of the manuals shown on this webpage may be the repair manual:

http://www.index-of-pdfs.com/hotpoint-aquarius-wml-520-user-guide-pdf.html



Most washing machine tops are simply a pressure fit that snaps on to the body. A firm grasp on the front sides of the top and a brisk pull may well pop it off.



Be sure to unplug the machine before you attempt any service!


Washing machines can be full of water AND electricity. That is most certainly a recipe for one, big, hydro-electric

Hotpoint wml 540g the fault is the machine starts then the door light goes of and on ,it restarts then door light goes out and it flashes 4 extra function lights on the front panel ,and i have to switch it...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word 'yes'!
Either the interlock requires adjustment if that is physically possible on your machine or the sensor requires checking and possibly replaced.
For me this is a rare quick answer- I normally rant on............................... :-0)
