Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
Reason for taking a long time spinning is that it might have an uneven load. The wrong number of bath towels, for instance will mean it takes 3 or 4 tries at getting the spin right before it can spin them at the correct speed. An unbalanced load doesn't do the machine any good either.
After this wash has finished try it on something a lot lighter- say a duvet cover only with a couple of pillowcases. If that takes a long time too then the trouble is with the machine.
Looks like your "programmer" has stopped on the "spin cycle".
Could be a sensor has gone.
But everything points to the "little drive" in the programmer.
You could try "Manually Rotating The Selector Round a Few Times"
(This could free something off)
If a new "programmer" is needed, This could be more expensive than a new machine.
If the machine is under a year old it will still be under guarantee. If it is slightly over the year, but under 18 months old you still have a good case to go back to the manufacturer and get them to fix it.
