  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.

SOURCE: old top loading Hotpoint washer---the agitator

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.

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.

All cycles on my washing machine work, but machine will not agitate. What are possible solutions to fix the issue? It is a Hotpoint, top load, model # is vvsr1070daww


The most probable thing causing it to not agitate is going to be stripped/broken agaitator coupler.
The video will show you to take out the agitator and check for a defective agaitator coupler

Washer will not drain completly need to remove agitator but how? Model number JU020000 serial # MC 4207348. Thank-you.

On most washers the agitator has nothing to do with pump out.
Most washers have an electric pump, a belt driven pump, Or a pump attached to the motor. themobilian_1668.jpgthemobilian_1669.jpgthemobilian_45.gif
The newer models have a pump filter that needs to be cleaned from time to timethemobilian_1672.jpgthemobilian_1671.jpgthemobilian_1670.jpg

if anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..

Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.
