Could be the the little gear checks under the agitating cap , take a screw driver and pop the cap on the top of the agitater, and look at the 3 little plastic, catches, there is a gear there where it goes back and forth , and when it turns, thses little catches, connect, and make the agitater spin , thses can be replaced easy , and will save you a lot of money, let me know

Hi

Please check that lid switch. Start the machine to fill. Then open and then close the lid while it is filling. Does it stop filling when you open the lid? Next let it agitate and do the same thing. Does it stop agitating with the lid up? Next, put it in spin and try to open and close the lid.

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

Set washer to just spin


Set timer dial to the final spin position,approx 8-40 position by clock time you will then hear the pump come on , and it will do just the last final spin.
The spin symbol is marked with a large squirl.
To get a copy of instructions go to www.hotpoint.co.uk
On the list click on Manuals-user guides-handbooks
In the search box enter your washer model number, and download the instructions.
Plz rate my solution.

Motor runs, but no spin.


You don't list model number so this will be a bit generic for Hotpoint top loader. If the motor spins but the belt is not moving: With power off, manually turn the large pulley the belt goes around, just a revolution is enough. Spin is CCW, but you may have to try CW (agitation). Now set turn the washer on spin again. This may unlock your transmission, but unfortunately is usually only a temporary solution. If the machine was manufactured prior to 1-1-06 and still under five years old, the transmission may still be covered under warranty. Check the back pages of your owner's manual. (labor would not be covered) If too old / not covered, I'd invest in a new front loading washer. The LG's are #1 rated in Consumer Reports and are direct drive (with a 7 year warranty on the motor) so there is no transmission, clutch, belt, or pulleys. You don't have to get the top of the line model, all LG's are direct drive and very good. Other front load machines, although not DD, will also use much less water than your hotpoint and spin out twice as fast or more, reducing dry time and dry cost. I know this wasn't what you really wanted to hear (bad news), so don't bother rating this "solution". (don't want my rating to go down just because I told someone bad news about there machine.)
