Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
So far I know that: 1. When turning the drum manually it turns smoothly without resistance or noise 2. There is no vertical or horizontal play in the drum when trying to move it from the front 3. The concrete block on the top is securely fastened 4. The springs and dampeners look OK I think I can feel another concrete block to the bottom right of the drum (when viewed from the front of the machine). The problem is, I cannot access this area to check if this is a concrete block or even to tighten it (there is some play in it when I get hold of it from above). Is this another concrete block that should be tight, without play? How do I access this area to tighten it? Am I looking in totally the wrong area (should I be looking at a worn clutch or something else)?

First change the springs - both the leveling and suspension. You may also need to change a few other parts on the brake and drive tube including the thrust ring. But replace the springs and let see what happens.

1 option is to wind the back feet out so the washer drum will sit more to the front so as it less likly to hit the OOB switch, other thing is that the OOB switch might have corrosion on the inside of it and in this case if it gets moisture inside it during a wash it is more likely to go OOB, so try replacing it this should fix issue, if not replace Motor Control Unit. :)

It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. In the end it was the front balance weight that had been gradually coming looser and looser and needed fixing pack into place."
