O k find the acess panel in the front or back then follow this procudure most likely there is something jamming the pump look on the back and you might see an access panel remove it and you will see a large hose coming down from the tub.Now the washer will still be full of water.There are three ways to deal with this the best way is to get a shop vac.remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vac the water out,the second is to get a pair of radiator hose clamps from the auto parts store and clamp the large hose as close to the tub as possible ,the third is you can get a bucket remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and getting as close to the floor as possible let the water drain in the bucket .after that put some towels around the pump.Remove the clamp and slide the large Rubber boot off the pump look in the pump for foreign objects jamming the impeller blades and for broken blades if broken replace the pump.feel in the boot for same as pump .Then reassemble if nothing found then go check drain hose.

Had this same problem on BWD129, had a tech in and there is generally only one cause. Something stuck in the impeller (pump) in our case it was a shirt collar insert but is normally coins. If the machine makes any noise on the spin, this is likely the cause too (but it hasn't jammed.. yet)
Look at the front of the machine. In the bottom right corner there is a black cover.
Tilt the machine backwards so any water would run to the back of the machine.
Put a bowl under the filter cover and use a pair of pliars (other sites had said they use a special tool so I hadn't done it) to remove the cover slowly.
Remove cover & filter, check inside and remove the blockage.
This is a no fault found tech call and will set you back £106 + VAT.

Hotpoint BWD129 Spinning Difficulties

IF it sits and you can turn it later, the only thing that would cause that is something heating up and becoming seized. When it cools off it frees itself. I would check the bearings on the drum.

I have a Hotpoint BWd129 washer/dryer. When I

I have a similar Hotpoint model to this, that does something very similar now and again, usually when trying to set a delayed start.

The only way I have found to "fix" it is to turn the machine off for at least 5 minutes, and then try again.

Hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with this machine with out a picture, but does it have a control knob that would allow you to advance through the cycles? If so you should be able to go to a spin cycle and empty the unit. How long did you leave it unplugged? Sometimes it requires several minutes to loose its memory. If not you may need to empty the water manually as it may be a fail safe to keep you from getting the floor all wet. Take a bucket and lift the drain hose out of the house drain pipe and lower it into the bucket to empty. It may take several trips. This will not work unless the hose comes out of the bottom of the machine which I think yours does. Once empty try plugging the unit back in and see if that helps. If not the main control processor may have taken a voltage spike and has suffered irreversable damage and will need to be replaced. Please give me more info..
