Question about Hotpoint VBSR3100GWW Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.

My Hotpoint washer VBSR3100G2WW will fill up with water and begin the slow swoosh sound of the main agitate cycle, but at the same time I can hear it draining. Eventually it drains enough to stop agitating and begin refilling. Only it is still draining and thus it never refills and never continues the wash cycle. If I push in the button it drains completely. To get it to wash I have to stand next to it and repeatedly set and reset the dial and/or water level. Does anyone have any ideas about what is wrong?

Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water

    Breaker switch flips when machine starts to agitate


    Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

    My washing machine is not changing cycles. It fills, drains and refills. It sat unused for 1 year. 12 months ago it was working fine.


    Hi there. I can help you.

    When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:


    • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

    • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. If this is the case, turn off the water and remove the hoses. Check both hoses to be sure the filter screens are not clogged with crud and that the hoses aren't kinked.

    Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains


    Water siphoning out the drain line
    If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
    moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
    Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

    Washer fills continuously until it has overflown


    Hi,
    I found this answer on Repairclinic.com. Hope it helps...

    Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
