Hotpoint WML730 Aruarius washing machine drum problem

by / Tuesday, 14 July 2020 / Published in

Hi Paul Thanks for your email with your web site details. I am about to purchase from your site the front rubber drum seal.But I notice that the drum itself is warped when you turn the drum it seems to come close to the rubber on one side I think this is the cause of the rubber seal damage in the first place and makes the drum stop moving. but if turn the drum anti-clockwise it fine the gaps OK I find your video very good to watch am please that I find you online.My last concern is the Heating Element, watching the video makes it look simple but I try to remove the heating element it will not comes out at all. I tryed everything pulling,I think the rubber around the heating element is what is causing the problem. Sorry, Misses is driving me bad.ThanksAgainHarry

I will try and help with this problem Hotpoint WML730 Aruarius washing machine

If you can see that the drum is Warped this is normally caused by a small item of clothing getting between the drum on the outer tub this may have damaged the door seal in the process,  as you will see from the exploded diagram below, I'm sorry to tell you that this drum is a sealed unit how do you need to replace the whole drum 

The part number that you need is C00145181
