Could be a number of issues really. Lid switch could be bad, timer may have issues, motor could be out as well. Does it make any noises at all when you go to start it (like a hum or something). Lets get some other information before we jump in. Try a different timer cycle. Does the unit fill with water, then stop? Does the dryer work normally? Tell me all you can, whats its doing, when it does it, etc. Will get you fixed, just dont want you to replace something that doesnt need it. Talk to you soon.

    Ok, when it is in agitation, does the inner basket turn real fast? Sounds like you may have a transmission that has went bad. On the bottom of the transmission, there is a bearing that will only allow the transmission to turn one way. When that lock bearing goes bad, the motor cant get torque to move the belt. This in turn burns a hole in the belt. The best way to get a hint if this is what happened is to watch the inner drum (not the agitator) when in agitation, and see if it moves kinda fast, or spins quickly in agitation. Let me know what happens next. Talk to you soon.

    Ok, maybe should remove your belt, just push in on the tensioner pully, then slide off the belt. Check it for burns, tears, etc. Let me know what the belt looks like, then try to turn the pully by hand. Also see if the motor pully turns freely. Let me know.

Hotpoint washer won't spin or agitate and has black soot - is clutch out?


The motor coupling is attached to the shaft of the motor. The "soot" is probably the result of the coupling shredding prior to failing

Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.

3 area rugs wee washed but would,nt spin out . E20 kept flashing. I took all but 1 rug out machine finished cycle but still didn,nt wring out This has never happened before


there is a lint screen inside the water pump hose(the one that goes from the outer tub to the pump). if you have a port or access door to get to it remove it, if not you may have to remove the front panel to get to it. you could have debris blocking the drain and causing the computer to delay the spin process.
