Hi,

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season in good health! :)

Very luckily and by the skin of my teeth, I got this very lovely Hotpoint Supermatic 1400 from 1961. I'm still a bit overwhelmed! :D

It's in amazing condition both internally and externally considering it is 55 years old next year. It even came with the very rare worktop that very seldom came along with this machine. Apart from requiring the usual tidy up and hose replacement the machine only has one issue that I think will be hard to remedy. :mellow:The spinner lid support brackets need replacement as one is entirely disintegrated and the other is corroded. Why oh why did Hotpoint have to use an alloy for this part!

I know it's a long shot but would anyone here have a pair of these that I can buy? Any other 1400 spares would be most welcome but I think I'm chancing my arm already.

I may even have to fabricate my own with some help. :blink:

James

Hello there. Aye, it's extremely unlikely you'd be able to get any spares for it. There are still a few Hotpoint twin tub spare parts available for UK manufactured Hotpoint twin tubs but the vast majority of all spares for twin tubs are long since obsolete. These days it's hard to get spares for anything that is not the latest model as they deliberately avoid stocking any spares that aren't pretty fast movers, there's absolutely no money in it for them.
