Replacing a motor on a 30 year old Hotpoint!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I have a VERY old Hotpoint washing machine - a Hotpoint 9545 Electronic 1200 DE LUXE which I've been told is about 30 years old!  It's soldiered on relentlessly but I think the motor may have packed up as at the weekend there was some smoke/burning smell coming from it. 

I've checked a spare parts web site and I was able to find a motor for the Hotpoint 9546 but not the 9545 and I was hoping that someone could tell me whether the motor could still be used on my 9545.  I contacted Hotpoint but they couldn't help me as the machine was discontinued ages ago so maybe a technician who's a member here might be able to help me.

It's a long shot I know but you never know...

Hello Mark. In all honesty I wouldn't expect a motor to be still available for a 30 year old washing machine, and I definitely wouldn't recommend fitting one. 30 years is almost world record age these days. How much is this motor? I wouldn't be surprised if you could buy a new washing machine for similar price?
