Hotpoint Aquarius WF430 washing machine. Drive belt has come

Customer Question

Hotpoint Aquarius WF430 washing machine. Drive belt has come off. I can force it back on but it runs off to the side of the wheel. Is there a procedure for fitting? Should I get a new belt? is there an underlying problem? Patrick

Hello Patrick, my name is George,

Please check two things for me:

  • Can you wobble the pulley?
  • Does the inner-drum lift up/down by hand inside the outer tub without the outer tub moving?
