Re: Why is it leaking during operation?
Could need de-scaling. Scale builds up after time and reduces flow rates, increasing pressure leading to leaks. Give it a go with any generic de-scaling powder or liquid following the instructions. My coffee machine (different model) did similar and now works like new again.

1. turn your machine few times by hand
2. mix your machine oil half and half with mineral turp, use that on all oil points, this will soften and help remove all hardened old oil,
3. run machine on few stitches on old rags to get rid of old oil
4. re-grease with your machine oil, run again and use normally.
5. re-grease machine on all points daily for next week or so and then, depending on the load monthly is fine
this should solve your greasing problem :-)

I believe the OE error is generated if it takes too long for the washing machine to drain. If the drain is blocked or the pump is is not functioning well, the error will show up intermittently. I believe we experienced a similar error a couple of years back. After verifying the drain was clear, I replaced the drain motor, I believe the washing machine was about 5 years old at that time.
Hi just read your posting.I know your machine well and the reason the machine is not spinning is the clutch ring is worn.I do not know what country you are in but $ 250 seems a bit excessive.This web site has no affiliation with Whirlpool and everyone on this website try to help people for free.I have repaired this fault many times and If you like I can help you repair your machine.Please reply with the country you are in and if you would like further help.Looking forward to your reply.
If it is indeed less than a year old, then I recommomend you contact Hotpoint direct as the washer will still be under the years guarantee,and you should get a call free of charge

there is a magnet controlled switch in the top cover lid and the probable cause the magnet is missing.
The best alternative is just keep a good magnet on the top of lid & slowly move the magnet horizontally.At one point the BEEP stops & machine starts to function.
Hi Mike. I am Kelly. I noted you went the chat route first before your p;ost ended up here.
Take the drain hose from the drain and maually drain the machine until you can not get any more water out of it. Then unplug the machine for 5 - 10 minutes so that the filter sensor will reset. For some unknown reason it seems the sensor is working but it did not trip and error code on the display panel.
If it still does not work after the manual drain you may have to open the filter door and open the filter to allow it to completely drain and do the same 5 - 10 min plug out of wall / power off routine.
