Washing Machines - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals

C9 is a motor fault.
Normally it's worn out carbon brushes so you'll need to check them first.
If worn out or broken, replace them.
Then, you need to erase the code (reset the machine).
To do this, turn the dial to off.
Press and hold together, prewash and soaking buttons.
While holding them, turn the dial 1 click anti clockwise.
Release the buttons.
Turn the dial to off, to any program and back to off.
This should get rid of the C9 code.
It will come back if you don't repair the motor fault.

I have notice this problem with a lot of front loaders. I would check the manufacture warranty to see with is covered and if you bought an extended warranty, use it, keep your receipts for your previous purchases.

unplug it for a few minutes and plug it back in again might be a pain but till you can get it serviced it should delete the fault code and run thru a full cycle. hope this helps a little.
Not a true fix just a work around.

best to you.

Sounds like grease or oil from transmission may be leaking and finding its way into tub.

It appears that from that area the problem may be the water inlet valve or it's connections. See diagram https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/LA212/3048/0153000.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=LA212&searchTerm=LA212

you need to get into diagnostic mode and check the error codes. This washer will give you couple of error codes but the first one is the latest. To check error codes
How to Read Vertical Modular Washer VMW Error Code Display
Calibrate/reset error
How to Calibrate Top Load Washer

After calibration/resetting the codes, check error code again that will give you correct error code. If there's no error possible problem is the actuator.

Certainly. Treat it gently and don't jar it and expect to be sprinkled with a little water and you will be fine.If moving/tilting it causes damage it will be because it wasn't in good condition.

Fitting the transit brackets it was supplied with when new would make the process much more secure.

First be sure you're getting power to the motor this could cause both problems. If getting power then
sounds like you have 2 problems.
On the heating problem be sure you have 220 volts at the power block, check the heating element , thermostats & high temp cutoff with an ohmmeter. Also check the centrifical switch on the motor it keeps the heat off for safety till the motor is up to speed so the fan is working.
Check lid switch some machines won't do anything but fill with the lid open . To check lid switch push the the switch down with a small screwdriver. If switch is ok check the coupler between the motor & transmission it can cause no agitate or spin. If all these are ok you may have a transmission problem. Last resort may be timer or wireing.

go to the parts website for Hotpoint for price or Google the part number and someone will post it for sale.
Try going to You-Tube for instruction video on replacing.

If it is still under warranty, call mfg or warranty company.

Yes I happens to work a lot with this type of machines. Normally when the spin is too slow the problem rises form a week voltage, motor winding too week for the velocity. I means that the winding in the motor might have gotten burn and weakened the winding to the point where when the motor ask for more voltage to spins the housing the winding heat up. That is why you smell as something burning. The system in this type of machines is not complex but tedious. If everything else work in the machine then it is the motor.

Tilt it on it's side (once you drain it, using a shop vac). Locate the drain hose, it's connected to the pump. Remove hose, See if anything is blocking the exit.

While it's on its side, check and see if your "movers" (Which probably means means uncle bob and his beer buddy roy) might have disconnected and wires leadign the the pump... 99.999% of connectors are simple push on type.
