Hi Karen,
That is a real pain when that happens, but let me see if I can help.
First on the top of the agitator or wringer you will see a small cover. You will need to pop that off to reveal the screw hidden underneath. Remove the screw and then the agitator will pull upward and off. The agitator on the hotpoint washing machine is really hard to pull off so you will really have to pull. When the agitator comes loose you will ofter be pulling so hard that you could hurt your arm on the top of the tub so be extra careful or get some guy to get hurt for you. Once removed I am sure the apron can be easily removed and all will be well again. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice day.

The wringer does not work


I haven't seen a washer equipped with a wringer for many years. The last was a Hotpoint Countess we owned in the 1970's. In these models and similar (Servis) the power wringer was driven by a vertical shaft from the sort of substantial gearbox that would do adequate duty in a fair-sized motorcycle.

Sometimes the drive can be engaged/disengaged and sometimes constant. The drive of the model we had turned constantly and the disengagement lever was on the wringer. the shaft could be clearly seen rotating whenever the wringer was removed. If the shaft is turning the fault is likely with the internal mechanism of the wringer and if not the shaft and the gearbox should be investigated.

Basically the apron bends down to the point that the bottom of the motor bracket hits the bottom of the washer when it agitates. If this is the case you have the sagging apron issue. The kit comes with good installation instructions that are pretty much straight forward. Here is the kit to order.

H2low whirlpool top load washer turns on, fills with water for a second and stops...keeps making a sound on the sensing mode but does not get to wash mode to continue washing.


if the washer is only one month old contact whirlpool and they will give you a service company in your area to contact and it the repair will be free of charge as long as the problem is with the washer and not something that you are doing wrong or something wrong with the way that it is installed, the unit is under mfg. warrnty for one year from date of purchase.
things to check before calling would be, water connections correct? hot to hot cold to cold. are both the hot and cold water turned on?
kinked lines?
i would call a whirlpool certified repair company, they will send a guy out and if its broken they will fix it for free.

How do you take out the agitator?


I don't know this machine but if you have removed all the fasteners, you might try this. I found that putting a mountain bike inner tube under the agitator around the edge with only the stem exposed and pumping it up with a hand pump can pop off the agitator from an old Maytag wringer washer. Maybe this will help you.

Apron string caught under the rod the agitator sits on. How do I take it off to remove the apron string


Is it a top loader if it is.

You can remove the agitator.
Remove the dispenser pops out, you might need a flat screw driver. After that remove the cover in the agitator.
There should be a bolt. remove the bolt and now you can pull out the agitator.

Now you can get the apron string right out.
