Asked this question a few days ago. Since then have checked and can confirm that it does drain and the water pump is working.
When programme reaches spin it just makes a light chuntering noise but does not spin. Rest of programme working OK.

Re: Hotpoint WM 22 wont spin
The first you need to do is check the brushes in the motor.
Remve the screws at rear of top cover, remove cover.
Slacken off the 2 bolts securing motor,and remove belt.Remove 2 screws that hold motor and lift motor up so you can access the brushes..
The brush holders will be either black or white, depress the plastic lug that holds the brush in place, and slide the holders out, remove the wires to the brushes, and check the carbons, if their is less than 2 or 3 mm left, then replace them.
Only fit the genuine brushes, and if you can make sure you fit the black ones, as they are better than the white ones.
Follow the instructions on the packaging on how to release the carbons from the captive position.
Refit motor, and ensure the belt is reasonably tight.
If it still does not work ,then the motor itself could be faulty, check for broken wires in the motor plug and harness.

Hi, The pump may be blocked, machine wont spin untill it has pumped out the water, so the problem is not draining, first check drain hose is not blocked or kinked and then check the pump filter, there will be a hatch or cover usualy at the front near the bottom which you unscrew and you can remove blockage from the pump. Note, there will be some water left in the machine and it will be released when you remove pump cover so put a few towels on the floor or you can tilt the machine back and put a block of wood underneath while you inspect pump. If it still wont work after you have check the hose and pump then the pump may be faulty and need replacing, seek professional help for this.
The OE code appears because the machine is not fully drained after 10 minutes to start the spin cycle. The machine cannot spin with water still not drained due to clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked pump filter, or pump not working. Remove the drain hose from where it is installed and drain the water from the machine into a basin that is enough to hold the water. The drain hose or the pump filter is indeed clogged/blocked if the water does not drain/flow by gravity into the basin.
Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear and not kinked. Open the pump filter cover then remove and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller with your finger and turn it to check whether it is stuck or not.
Make sure the pump wire harness is snugly connected and intact. Replace the pump if no issue is found with the drain hose, pump filter, impeller, and the wire harness or after all issues are addressed and the fault code still appears.

What you need to do is check the pump is getting a feed to it
Select a spin cycle, and with a test meter, test for voltage across the pump terminals, if you are getting a feed, and the pump is working ok, then you obviously have a blockage beyond the pump.
If no voltage then could be a broken wire, or a faulty programmer/board. ONLY CHECK FOR VOLTAGE IF YOU ARE COMPETENT TO DO SO, as it takes no prisoners. Hope this helps.
