Re: where is the filter
The filter is located at the rear`of the washer.
To access it, remove the rear lower panel.
You will see a large black hose, remove hose from bottom of tub, and you will find the plastic filter inside, remove filter and clean.
Refit filter and hose, and test.
If it still does not spin, then you need to check the brushes.
If you require info on how to check and change them, then let me know.

Hi Jenny. Do you have the model No. available? Most common cause of this problem is 1. A faulty or broken door catch. 2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.
Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.
It sounds like it needs new carbons fitting in the motor.
It is a fairly straightforward repair.
Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear.
The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt.
Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum.
You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic`lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor.
fit new genuine Hotpoint carbons, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals.
Tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight.
Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
