If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

While turning the motor by hand, I applied medium heat and high fan with a hairdryer. Strange remedy, but it worked, and all is back to normal.

Remove rear cover of washer, and top cover also, tilt washer towards you, get someone to hold washer steady, fit belt round motor pulley,and slowly feed belt round drum pulley, watch your fingers, keep feeding belt round oulley, turning drum at same time, it will be tight, but persist, and belt will go on.
Please rate my solution.

Its not impossible but a real battle without the correct tools. If at the back of your washer, you have the main arm assembly, then firstly remove the belt and then the pulley.Undo the nuts holding the assembly and in short, pull that assembly off by pulling it towards yourself. Once off, you will see the bearings and seal that need to be replaced. Once done, reassemble carefully and god luck.

Hi, A bleach based cleaner should improve things. It sounds like its a form of mildew , an airbourne fungus that likes damp places. Once bleached it should stay clear for a while. Make sure you rinse it after to avoid damaging your clothes. Hope this helps, Nick.

can you hear the motor spinning.

Hotpoint... | Answered on May 13, 2009

Please follow the step by step instructions below.....
1)  Turn off water. Disconnect electrical supply and water hoses.
2)  Remove agitator and cap from machine ( this is not always possible as the agitator gets frozen on the shaft, it just makes the job a little easier )
3)  Lay machine on it's front. Protect front of the unit from scratches. Do not leave it over night on it's front as some oil will leak out the breather hole on top of the transmission.
4)  Remove rear service panel
5)  Loosen both nuts holding the motor mounting bracket in the slotted base plate holes. (see figure 1)

its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.
