For most front-loaders: Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid.
Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the
slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot
on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the
spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of
the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of
hands.Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this
is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring. Test for leaks before
using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher. (There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)
It does, but our loving friends at Hotpoint put the filter UNDER the drum and it can only be got to by drgging the machine out and attaching from the rear. The filter is the size of a large coffee mug, covered in rubber, directly below the cetrre of the drum and held in place by a large jubilee clip. Remove the clip, pull off the rubber boot and inside is a white conical "pot" with a ping pong ball in it. HOWEVER. Before you do this, if you are getting smells, first take 3 DISHWASHER tablets, throw them in an empty washer and put it on the hottest whites cotton program you can. Modern biological powders use bacteria to "eat" stains and when they get trapped in the machine, they can smell. Dishwasher tablets are made to wash and to KILL bacteria. It may help. Its a good thing to do anyway every now and again and it may save you a fruitless job dragging the machine out for no reason.

Are you around when the breaker trips? It almost seems as though an electrical connection is getting wet. Especially if it won't let you reset the breaker. Another reason for not letting you reset the breaker could be an overload that tripped but that to me would be within the machine, it shouldn't trip at the panel. You get pull the machine apart and check for these things. Look for and wetness or wire connections being crossed, anything like that. Something at the spin cycle is shorting out and tripping out your breaker. Also is your dryer circuit properly sized (30AMP Breaker with 10/3 wire)?
Seems like a blockage or maybe pump worn out. Fill machine and take grey outlet pipe on rear of machine. Place this pipe as low as possible into a bowl. If water flows free from this pipe then your pipes are not blocked and most likely you will need to change your pump. Before you try this just put machine onto spin and ensure this will work when machine is almost empty
It depends on where you live, and who you call.
If you call Hotpoint, then the callout charge is nearly £100.00.
If you call an independent repair man, then you can expect to pay anything between £4.00 and £60.00 for the call, plus the cost of the belt.
Hope this helps.
There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
