£6 Each

Select ManualContent & InformationHome Page


The Home Repair Manuals listed for sale in this section are for the Hotpoint WM Models and each manual covers one of the listed model numbers shown below.
If you are looking for assistance in fault finding or need to know how to repair your machine, you could find most of the answers you seek are in these manuals.

Included in the manuals are useful hints and tips on certain aspects of the machines workings, as well as what to look for in diagnosing faults. There are also easy to follow dismantling/rebuilding instructions.
The wiring connection charts were designed especially for this series of manuals and display the connections from the timer to component as well as component to timer, with the colour of the wiring illustrated. (As in the cutaway section shown below).
If you have one of these machines and are not sure if this manual will have the information you need, we have supplied a complete list of contents below.

Due to the vast number of different models within this range, the number of available manuals in comparison is rather restricted and only covers the TIMER controlled versions.
However we have produced a Generic manual that covers a wider range of models including  some of the 95 series, but wiring connection charts are only available for the WM models listed in the Generic manual. (For more information click on
WM Generic Manual on the Home page)
