Just before we moved to NZ we purchased a Hotpoint washing machine which we chose because of its international guarantee. Guess what, it doesn't extend all the way to New Zealand! On top of that we have not been able to find anyone who repairs Hotpoints out here so after only 6 months of use the machine is sitting in the garage.
I am thinking of purchasing the motor from the UK and having it shipped out but before I get organised I thought I check if anyone out there has had the same problem in North Canterbury and has come across someone who stocks Hotpoint parts.

Hi Twit, have you tried asking on
site? might be worth a crack. When you get in click on 'discussion' then click on 'New Zealand' and maybe start a thread after logging in of course. The people there have a wealth of knowledge and someone may be able to help you out.
What a pain even though I believe Hotpoint is a good manufacturer.

hi. Our washing machine lasted less than a year after we shipped it from the UK when the bearing went. We just put it on trademe $1 reserve and told people what was wrong with it. It sold for $180.00 and bought a new one.
Have you concidered taking the motor out and getting it re wound? There are companies in town that can do that.
