There are many things that could be causing your problem. Review them all and decide whether u want to try and fix it or if u need to call in a pro:

If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.

  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.

If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Machine shows E 61 when switch on.


E61 I think this a door lock error code. When you close, the door it activates a switch which will allow the machine to start a wash programme. Conversely the first thing the selected programme does is activate a solenoid, to stop you opening the door before the machine is ready. Think spinning drums, small children and cats, or flooded floors. I digress, if that little switch stops working or the mechanism has moved slightly and isn't activated, the machine assumes the door is open.
Maybe not a great help but we have narrowed things down.

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.

Hi, my ultima machine door wont open and says error code f-05, can you help.


Link to the service website: http://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/hs/pages/content.do?keys=FAQ:ERROR_CODES

From the owner's manual under troubleshooting:
Error code: F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full

The door will not open...
● Has the programme finished? Is ‘End’ lit
in the display window and the ‘Keyhole
symbol deactivated?
The door will not open until the ‘Keyhole
symbol goes out shortly after the
programme has finished.
● There is still water in the machine.
Go through all the points in the next
section,‘The machine will not pump out
water...’
The machine will not pump out the
water...
● Make sure that there is no blockage in
the drain hose and that it is not kinked.
● Is the drain hose installed correctly?
● If you have connected your machine to a
sink waste system, make sure that you
have cut out the membrane from the
under sink drainage system.
(see section: INSTALLING YOUR
MACHINE).
● Ensure that the drainage system,
standpipe or under sink connection is
free from any blockage.
- If any of the above are found to be
the cause of your problem you will need
to run the machine through a spin only
programme.
● If you have chosen ‘Rinse Hold’, the light
will flash until you press the ‘Rinse Hold’
button to continue the programme.
