GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint
Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.

Should you replace a 2010 miccrowave hotpoint that smells hot
It depends on the reason for the hot smell - discovering this would mean a trip to the service shop and weighing the cost of that against a replacement microwave.
Unless your Hotpoint is something special, it is likely a replacement would make sense.
It is wise to periodically measure the power output of a microwave oven by timing the boiling of a measured quantity of water when it is young. When or if the time has extended more than about 10% it is time to think about service or replacement. It is also important to keep the inside of the cabinet clean and all the air vents clear.
