My hotpoint has quit spinning, how do I evaluate and repair


If it will not agitate or spin, you will need to replace the belt. If it will agitate but not spin, you have a bad transmission. This has been a nightmare to Hot Point (GE). I did warranty repairs for GE for 8 years. During that time, GE had me condemn on average 6 washers a week due to bad transmissions. Reason being, it was cheaper for them to send the customer a new washer than it was for them to ship me a new transmission and pay me to replace it.
Sorry but take my advise when I say, when you replace your washer, don't but a GE or Hot point. They still have not bothered to fix their transmissions.

Washing machine won't turn back and forth


Most likely your drive belt has slipped off. Open up the back of teh washer and see if the drive belt has slipped off and ease it back on with a screwdriver.

Grease Leak


Unfortunately not. In addition to replqacing the blet, the transmission must be replaced. It is the only item in your washing machine that contains gear oil. It's a tough job for the do-it-yourselfer...If I can help further, I am here.

Motor runs, but no spin.


You don't list model number so this will be a bit generic for Hotpoint top loader. If the motor spins but the belt is not moving: With power off, manually turn the large pulley the belt goes around, just a revolution is enough. Spin is CCW, but you may have to try CW (agitation). Now set turn the washer on spin again. This may unlock your transmission, but unfortunately is usually only a temporary solution. If the machine was manufactured prior to 1-1-06 and still under five years old, the transmission may still be covered under warranty. Check the back pages of your owner's manual. (labor would not be covered) If too old / not covered, I'd invest in a new front loading washer. The LG's are #1 rated in Consumer Reports and are direct drive (with a 7 year warranty on the motor) so there is no transmission, clutch, belt, or pulleys. You don't have to get the top of the line model, all LG's are direct drive and very good. Other front load machines, although not DD, will also use much less water than your hotpoint and spin out twice as fast or more, reducing dry time and dry cost. I know this wasn't what you really wanted to hear (bad news), so don't bother rating this "solution". (don't want my rating to go down just because I told someone bad news about there machine.)

mits86 , you are correct - it could be the belt.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
- If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

Please dont forget to rate me as fixya.
