Could be a couple of causes.First take off panel at back of machine and check that belt is in place.
Has it been noisy on spin lately?

    Just a thought. Is it emptying the water?

  • pedropony2 Jan 29, 2009

    This is then down to the motor. Will most likely be the brushes need replacing. To do this you will need to remove the motor & the brushes are located at the back in plastic holders.

    Thankyou for using Fixya.

I have a hotpoint ultima wt746, every time it spins its really loud and it walks across the floor, i have had hotpoint out to it to many times to remember, they always change the shocks and it never solves...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya:
Thjese machines have a device on them called a out of balance switch on them that senses the movement of the tub and when it is out of balance it is supposed to do 1 of 2 things
either shut the machine down or let it run in a lower speed
So what you can do is first slide the machine out away from the wall about 3 feet then tilt the machine back so that the front of it comes off the ground at least 12 inches then set it back down
This will reset the switch if it is still working then make sure that the unit is 100% level in the front and back and both sides then try it again and if it does it again then i would be calling the manufacture and telling them the problem with the make and model number of this unit
Some of these units are under recall for this very problem ok? and see about the warranty
Hope this helps
Best regards Mike

My hotpoint ultima wont spin, its as thought something is preventing it for spinning. When its switched to spin cycle it turns a little to the left, then a little to the right, but cant seem to go any...

Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.

Drum wont move

Check the motor and the belt on the back of the unit behind the rear plate. Make sure that the belt is attached and the motor is spinning. If this helped please rate. Thank you

You will probably need to clean the pump filter.
To access the pump filter,remove the lower plastic panel at front of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew the cover anti-clockwise, remove filter and clean.
This should clear the fault.
If it does not , let me know, and i can can tell you other things to look for.

check the wires which run from the motor up to the main pcb, it's quite common for these to rub together and break. i have came across this a number of times now.

hi, i have the same machine..i have a feeling it does this annually to make you call an engineer. to reset it do this; hold the 'start' button until all lights display, then press 'start' again. hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off. it doesnt always work 1st time so keep trying, good luck x
