The timer will add on time if the water is cold or the heating element is taking too much time to heat the water. Check both inlet water screens in the back of the unit (clean as necessary) and.... do a continuity test on the heating element with the power secured / OFF. If the heating element is open you will most likely experience the symptom you currently have. Stokes AU can get your parts: http://www.stokesap.com.au
FYI if you can find a GE Appliance dealer they also work on Hotpoint. (Other than the name they are pretty much the same unit)
It appears the only GE dealer is in AU here:
Andi-co Australia ' www.andico.com.au
They would also be a source for parts.

How do i apply the
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Methinks you could do with a manual- for all eventualities!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct.
If this has assisted you please score accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

No spin cycle
Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.
I hope this helps.

Does the wma76 hotpoint need a hot water feed? Is
Hi from retired Englishman in France (it's 21:29!),
If your washer has 2 pipes for feeding water then one is for hot and the other is for cold naturally.
All washing machines have a water heating element in them- in case any hot water supply is not hot enough for its wash.
If you only have a cold tap you will need to purchase a 'Y' connector. This screws onto the cold tap supply (single end) and the hot and cold feed pipes connected to the washer screw onto the other two ends. The machine will now be fooled into thinking it has two separate feeds!
The machine opens the valve for the 'hot' water supply (which of course is cold) and the heats it up to the required temperature for the wash cycle. Afterwards, when the machine requires cold water for rinsing, it opens up the 'cold' supply (which is the same supply as for the hot water!) and is happy.
Hope this answers your question.
