Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe

the lid switch can be changed without removing from closet for sure,you can remove the angular access panel between the2 units youll see 2 brass clips holding the cabinet to the top, slide the entire top toward you to remove. its located under there. there may be 2 screws across the rear of main top holding down as well but yea pulling out will get you kn more access to any component

SOURCE: Hotpoint WD440 1400 Spin
There has been an unbalanced load and the machine could not spin
(see ‘Automatic Features’, Starting and Programmes).
Has the drain hose been installed correctly (see Installation)?
Are the drain hose, standpipe or undersink connections blocked?
Has ‘Rinse Hold’ option been selected? If so press the Rinse Hold button
drain hose make sure there are no kinks and the end is over the top of washer to drain this ensures that there is no back flush with drain pipe
clean the dispenser drawer regularly
Clean and dry the dispenser
drawer, syphons, grate and
fabric conditioner exit channel
(A). Also regularly clean the
outlet pipe area
Never force the machine door: this could damage
the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent
any accidental opening

I had the same problem with my Atlantis a couple of months ago. It turned out to be the bearing for the tub drive pulley. When you look under the washer there are three pulleys. The one for the motor is ont he left, the drain pulley on the right and the big one in the middle for the tub. What I found is that when the bearing went bad, the tub would fill and turn for washing, but it would not turn at all for spinning. I could turn the pulley by hand but the tub refused to budge. I removed the main pulley and could see that the bearing had exploded. You can't buy just the bearing but the whole pulley kit is like $35 so I got off easy. I put the machine back together (which is tricky) but it works fine now. The pulley kit comes with complete instructions but it's really straightforward. The tricky part is that you have to pull down on the end of the drive shaft in order to get the retainer ring onto the pulley. That can be difficult if you don't have a lot of room to work or have a partner to assist. You can replace the whole thing or just the bearing and save the pulley for a rainy day if you want. I opted for the whole replacement. But I saved the old. cause ya neva know!

I have a top loading hotpoint and a feather blanket broke open and the washing machine would not drain or spin.
I had to empty it by hand(syphon and scooping), then unplug the washing machine and un hook the drain pipe and water hoses. I then tipped it over and unsrcrewed all the screws to find the pump. There should be a black hose going into it. You must take that black hose off by loosening the clamp. Once I took that off I could see the pump completely clogged with feathers. I removed the feathers and hooked everything back up. It took me about 25 min to do the entire process.
hope this helps.
