My Hotpoint wma50p won't spin ? When you load it and select a programme it fills with water then nothing ! If you put it on spin only it emptys the water but no spin ! I've checked the belt, cleaned the filter and motor brushes which are fine plenty there. If you leave the machine on and the water in it cools down the heating element starts up and reheats it to the required temperature but still it won't spin or go through any cycle apart from the start ie fillling.
Had same problem today with our machine. Brushes looked OK (although one appeared a little shorter than the other).
After removing and re-fitting the brushes, motor worked fine - suggesting that it was the brushes afterall.

Bad motor/ DC power inverter control assembly. My suggestion is don't buy electronically controlled washing machines. They're designed to stop working and for corporate to sell you parts and service again and again and again, until you go buy a rebuilt second hand fully electro-mechanical good ole reliable mechanical top load washing machine.
If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long
Hello, it sounds like the main motor has blown. This causes the pump to stop as it is connected to the pulleys and gearbox. The only solution is replacing the main motor. Even though it sounds expensive, it should only cost around $100 plus fitting.
hello sorry to say sounds like the programmer may be the trouble i was luck when i repaired mine there were dry joints on ther circuit board on the back of the programmer it's worth a try if you know someone that can use a soldering iron good luck
no easy way to get water out but try putting drain hose down at floor level into a bucket and that may work
fault is probably filter blocked.
to access filter, take rear back panel off. you will see a large diameter hose going from bottom of tub to pump. disconnect this hose at tub end - carefull, water will come out. filter is inside this hose. take it out, clean and reassemble
button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!
As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.
Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.
Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Hope it helps.
normally i would suggest changing motor carbons for hotpoint washers, but my experience is that the WMA motor armature is weaker than the carbons, normally if there is no connection fault a replacement motor is the answer 9 times out of 10, not a job for the amature
