Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
The reason the element blew may be a factor. I have a different model but I had a problem with the heating element as well. The spin cycle had been getting noisier over a period of weeks and then the circuit breaker kept tripping on filling up with water. I traced the problem to the heating element and took it out. It had a hole in it, letting the water in and causing a current to earth. The hole was in an area which looked worn down and I realised that the spinning drum must have been spinning on it during the spin cycle. This could only happen it the drum was off-centre. The three prong spider bracket holding the drum was broken. When I finally got it out (not easy), two of the prongs were broken and it was only supported by one prong. I fitted a new spider and it has beeb fine ever since. The spider looks like an aluminium alloy and if aluminium and steel are in contact in the presence of water the aluminium degrades.
Check your drum to see if is loose.
