There is an access hatch on the back of the washer.

Do some basic troubleshooting first:

  1. Open the door and spin the drum by hand. Does it move OK? i.e. it isn't jammed.
  2. Does it spin really really well like there is no resistance at all? Possible snapped belt.
Pull the washer out carefully and make sure there's enough slack on the water hoses and mains cable to get access to the back without causing a problem. Look at the back panel, there's a large oval panel approx 16" tall by 12" wide. It is held on by five or six screws. Using a cross head screwdriver of the correct size remove these screws. Grab the bottom edge of the panel and tilt it up slightly to slide it out.

You'll be looking at the back of the washer drum. The motor is at the bottom slightly before 6 o'clock. It should be obvious if the belt is attached or not.

Replacing the belt is straightforward. Just make sure it lines up with the grooves on the motor pulley.

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.

PROBLEM WITH HOTPOINT WASHER DRYER - MODEL BWD 129-ON DRY CYCLE CLOTHES COME OUT STEAMING AND WET. PLEASE ADVISE


If the clothes are coming out hot and steaming, then the water from the clothes is not condensing, it could be a blocked condenser, which will have to be removed and unblocked and cleaned.
The other possibility is that there is no cold water coming in on the drying cycle, this can also have the same effect.
Hope this helps.

Is Hotpoint washer/dryer bwd 129 cold fill only


From what I could find online at the Hotpoint UK website (this is probably very similar to the US site) it is a coldfill machine. This product brochure has a similar machine listed on page 25 (13 of 19). Hope this is helpful to you
