Hotpoint WD63 not spinning correctly


Two things to check.
Remove rear cover.
Remove large black hose onto drum
Remove and clean filter inside hose.

Next--remove top cover and check the brushes in the motor, if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long, then replace them.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Drum makes grinding noise when turning


Hi.
spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then you probably have drum bearing failure.
Another possibility is one or more of the drum paddles may have come adrift..
These can be replaced.

Does not spin and rinse properly


Sounds like motor is not coming up to spin speed. May be overheating, in which case you would need a new motor.
