Why is my Hotpoint washing machine not draining?
If the water pump belt is broken or worn out, the washer will not drain. First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions.
How do I reset my Hotpoint washing machine?

What would cause a washing machine to not drain?
Your washer may have a clogged drain hose or the pump may be broken. A broken lid switch or belt could also be the culprit. It may even be something as simple as the the hose being jammed. The washer pump forces water from the bottom of the machine into the drain hose.
