Question about Hotpoint VLXR1020A Top Load Washer

Washing machine noise

I have an older Hotpoint washing machine. It is top loading and the water inside comes out of the side, not the back. Problem: It filled and started agitating today and started making a big high pitched whine. I did not let it finish, as I had to leave the house. Is is burning something up or can I run it that way? Thanks! Lisa B. :-)

I have black tarry stuff getting on my clothes.It's on the bottom of the basket when I look inside just in one spot. It's an older hotpoint top load washer.

It sounds like the baring has collapsed an is throwing out its sealed lubricant and coming through the holes onto your clothes, a new bearing possibly required.

Hotpoint VBSR2080WOWW washing machine vibrates with loud noise

this is a generic problem with top-loading washing machines. when the distribution of load is not uniform, it gives sound when spinning. if it produces noise even after equal distribution of clothes, the problem lies in the suspension. this is not a major fault, and can be put up with, rather than spending dollars on fixing it. this will in no way cause any special wear and tear for the machine.

Noise when draining

U will find the filter by removing the lower rear panel of the m/c.
Locate the large black hose at the right side, and remove clip securing hose. Get some thing ready to catch any water that will be in there, and remove hose.
There u will see the filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose,making sure that u get the hose on properly, test for leaks before u put the panel back on.
U will find this much easier to do if u tilt the m/c forward, and support it with something underneath.. Check inside the pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.

Hotpoint washer , top load

This sounds like a faulty water valve. Water is coming in the cold water valve when it shouldn't. If the machine has an automatic temp control make sure it is turned off.

  These older units had an insert in the agitator that would strip out.  Remove your agitator and take to a parts store. They should be able to help you out.

Hotpoint WMA 48, tripped house rcd, no lights on and water heating noise.

need to know a little more really but here goes, if you remove the top and the drive belt is still on then it will be as straight forward as the motor brushes at fault they will need replacing as this is a common fault on these machines. hope this helps
