Hi Daniel T,
Have cleaned out filter and checked fan impeller is turning freely and set it going on spin & pump out. I could hear the impeller going but it never spinned. I then loaded bath towels & sheets, put on Bath & Bed setting at 40 degrees, loaded soap and pressed go. It ran water in and then paused briefly before running a little more water and since time left 1.48 has done nothing. It is now time left 1.18 and still no washing.
Thought I should let you know now as it would appear the main drum is not operating.

Belt is on fine, had look at back of motor and attach photos. Cannot see any black plastic holders either side of motor, only some red leads into a white connector that appears to be held in my the domed disk at end of motor shaft. Do not appear to be able to attach photos so sending you email with them attached to it.

The Bed & Bath program is continuing its count down after taking it off pause but still no action, the clock is now down to 0.24. Nothing seems to have happened and there is no sign of water level on door panel. The only lettering on front screen is the usual Bed & Bath program info with temperature, spin speed and time left now 20 mins. No error messages.
Will have to come back to it on the night shift as I need to check and feed my livestock etc on the farm.
The Bed & Bath program seemed to stick with time to go as 1. Have now stopped opened the machine's door and find no water has gone in. Have checked supply and find plenty of water available at usual oressure andinlet filter is clear. Would that cause the drum to not revolve? Seems odd the program still counted down on time but stopped at 1. There was no fault listed at the end. It would appear to be a problem on the controls so have not bothered to check motor supply yet with multi meter.
I assumed it had filled a bit as there was a sound of clicks and what I thought was water. It was only after stopping program and opening door I found no water! Will contact an Hotpoint engineer, many thanks.
