SOURCE: Noisy When Agitating

It may not be your agitator. Find out if the inner basket/drum is "creeping"(moving)during agitation. if it does and it squeeks then your problem is in the brake system. you may need new brake rotor and stator. In that case you can't do it your self because you need a special tool to compress the spring. DON'T REMOVE IT without the tool you may HURT yourself.

SOURCE: Maytag top loading washer will not agitate

My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

SOURCE: I need to remove agitator from Roper washer Model

There should be a cap on the top of the agitator. Pry off the cap and remove the inner plastic cap down inside the agitator. Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator and lift the agitator out of the washer. Separate the upper and lower half of the agitator and install the new gears. Reinstall everything in reverse.
Hope this is of some help.

Hotpoint washer won't spin or agitate and has black soot - is clutch out?


The motor coupling is attached to the shaft of the motor. The "soot" is probably the result of the coupling shredding prior to failing

Can't remove agitator on hotpoint washer


I have this same model of Hotpoint washer. I pulled up on the agitator and that separated it from the hub. I removed the hub by loosening the bolt at the top of the hub with a socket wrench. I removed the hub after removing the bolt. I removed the long stringy fabric by unwinding it and lifting up. that's all there is to it. Really simple. Everything went back together very easily. Only hard part is lifting the agitator up with enough force to free it from the hub.

I have a HotPoint washer (VBXR1090D) and it stopped agitating. It still spins, and everything else, just doesn't agitate.


Hello,

Do you here the motor running on the agitation cycle yet it doesn't agitate? If so the agitator coupling is the problem.I have included a youtube video that will show you step by step how to repacle the coupling.The part number in the title of the video(WH49X10042) is the part number that you would need(Hotpoint is made by GE) it could be ordered by simply googling that part number

here is the lik for that video http://youtu.be/N26MCQKuXn0

I hope this helps and if it does please give me 4 thumbs up

Remove the agitator. The splines on the agitator transmission shaft need cleaning. They are at the top of the shaft. Take a sharp pointed knife and carefully clean the grooves of the shaft.If memory serves me, there are 13 grooves. You will also have to replace the agitator spline coupling found inside the top of the agitator.
You will have to cut out the top of the agitator and use a punch to knockout the old coupling.Do not cut out the entire top,only a circle about the size of a quarter.
Put the new coupling on the agitator transmission shaft,put a little liquid dish detergent on the rubber part of the coupling and place the agitator over it and push down hard until it seats.

My washer will fill up and drain but not agitate or spin


Looks like the motor needs to be replaced. After some years of use, the motor may not have enough strength to move the drum. If you test the motor by itself, it may work, but can't handle a load.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

Hotpoint washer


  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.
