Hi, I recently bought this second hand it is approximately coming upto 5 years old, however when it goes onto the spin cycle the drum seems to vibrate and knock a lot. Is it because we only half loaded it or could there be something more sinnister going on. Thanks.

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.
If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
You won't get a new board cheap, unless it is a second hand one,not recommended.
Apart from which, the board has blown for a reason, usually caused by a faulty motor, so if you bought a new board, chances are it would blow again
Long term , probably cheaper to buy a new m/c.Your only other option is that if the m/c is under 5 years old, you should be able to get it repaired under the 5 year part guarantee, you pay for labour and call out.
Plz rate my solution.
A couple of possibilities,there is something fast in the drum,or the main drum bearings have seized up.
If it is the bearings, and it is under 5 tears old, then you should be able to get it done under your 5 year parts guarantee., you just pay for labour and call out, a much sheaper solution than buying a new washer.
You really need to determine what has caused it to jam up.
