Belt fitting on a Hotpoint WMA46


Hi.
These belts are difficult to fit.
They appear to be too small, but they are in fact a stretch belt, so their is no adjustment provided on the motor itself.
The best way to do it is remove the back panel as you have done, remove the top cover also.
The with someone's assistance, tilt the washer away from you at the rear, getting someone to hold it for you.
Put the belt round the motor pulley first, and start feeding it round the drum pulley, slowing turning the pulley as you do so, the further you get it round, the tighter it will become.
Just keep going, and the belt will go on, watch you don't trap your fingers in the process. If it slips off, then start again.
Good luck
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Electrolux front loader.EWF1090 i have the replacement belt but am having trouble fitting it. belt seems too tight. is same as the roken one. any suggestions?


put it on the small pulley first, then hold it on the large pulley with your hand and slowly turn the big drum, ensuring the belt stays on the big pulley as you move it. line up where you place the belt on the small motor pulley with the drum or it may slip off again.

I cant fit a drive belt on ariston washing machine, none of the bolts seem to slacken the motor


Don't know if you have solved this yet but I found a good tip on fitting a drum belt to a machine that doesn't have tension bolts (i.e they are fixed).

First put the belt fully on the motor pulley. Now fit the other part of the belt onto the main pulley as much as possible on the right-hand side (looking at the machine from the front). Secure this part in place with a cable-tie (if you haven't got any go and buy some). With the tie in place, rotate the drum from the inside counter-clockwise and the belt should feed onto the main pulley correctly. The cable tie will either snap when you do this or you should cut it off after the belt is in place.

This worked for me.

Fitting a new drive belt to a hotpoint aquarius


Remove lower rear panel, tilt washer forward, getting someone to help, and fit belt round motor pulley, then fit belt round drum pulley, slowly turning the drum pulley round as you feed the belt on, it is very tight, and you might think the belt is to small, but this is normal, as the belt stretches, just persist, but be careful you do not trap your fingers. Good luck.

The drive belt is not going on to easily. Is there a knack to it


There is no trick to fitting belt, remove top cover and fit belt round motor pulley first, and then gradually feed belt round drum pulley from the top, watch you don't trap your fingers, it is tight, but this I think is the easyist way to do it..
It helps if you tilt washer towards you.it gives you more space to work in.

I have always fitted the the motor cog first then start by placing belt on half of the drum cog as much as you can, then by hand turn the drum and the belt should slip on.

Belt fitting for a WF000 hotpoint washer?


It should go around 2 wheels; one is the pulley of the motor, where there is a good groove. The other goes around the tub wheel which is big one. First fit to the motor wheel then fit to one side of this big wheel & turn the wheel to engage it gently. The belt should have a "give" of only half an inch, or it will be too loose or too tight.

If helped pl rate.........
