Very likely that the filter is blocked. Because the machine senses there is still water present it carries on spinning but the blocked filter is preventing the machine emptying. Turn off the power at the plug. The filter is usually mounted at the front near to the floor. Unscrew counter clockwise and be prepared for some water to leak out. Clean the filter under a tap, it will probably looked blocked and then re fit. Select a short programme cycle and see if the fault is cured.

Hi my washing machine wont stop running when the cycle ends - I have to pull the plub at the mains


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.

Washing machine wont spin


Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.

It sounds like you have a faulty inlet valve or module. Hope this helps.

The lights are set off by the balance sensors.And if your balance sensors are  stopping    it from spinning than you first have to make sure the washer is level.You  could have bad Shocks and a bad electronic control board,.

Have you checked to see that the waste is not blocked? THis is very common on these machines and causes the pressure switch not to operate, making the machine fail to spin or spin with water in the drum, causing unbalance symptoms.
This is extremely common on Hotpoint machines without a accessible filter. The filter is in the rubber waste pipe under the drum and needs to be removed to be cleaned out. When iti s blocked it also blocks the chamber that operates the pressure switch.
