Re: 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.

I have an Amana Top Load Washer Model Number ntw4800vq1 The washer shakes violently during the Spin Cylce. It will walk across the floor. I took the console off and removed the outer shell. I checked...


for the question of water comming in the spin cycle, yes its normal we call it a spray rinse. For the shaking check your leveling and also make sure that the back leveling feet when lifting back of washer up and down that the foot mechanism is functining.

Hope this helps

Not getting any water?

very strange problem.. there is a unit within the washer that does not allow it to start agitating untill the water is at the level desired. its very clever name is water level indicator valve the valve must be jammed closed there fore the washer thinks the barrel is full of water and goes strait into wash cycle. i would say replace the w/l/i and youl be fine

good luck

Not spinning or rinsing?

After the machine fills the next step is to agitate. By agitate I mean the wash portion. The plastic fin in the middle of the tub rotates back and forth. So, after the washer fills, if the machine does not agitate, but stops dead, you have a broken lid switch. When I say stops dead, I mean no noise whatsoever. If the machine makes noise you have other problems.

If the machine fills, agitates, and then stops dead, the problem is still the lid switch. The next step would be describing the noise so I can more accurately give a suggestion. Problems include but are not limited to: broken couplers, malfunctioning water pumps, and/or defective motors or transmissions. These are the vast majority of the problems, and the others need no mention.

With a model number I can give a part number of the lid switch, and or other problematic parts. Also, I can give you an average price of the parts. With this information you could order it yourself and save money :) The model numbers are located under the lid of the washer. Not physically on the lid, but right under it. Get eye level with the top of the washer and you will see it ;)

Whirlpool agitator not working!

Hello Roger.
Please do the following checks for they might just help.

Check that the water supply valves are turned on
Inspect the filter screens
Test for overheating
Inspect the water pump
Test the water inlet valve
Test the motor

Most probably this case may be due to a faulty motor.Good luck.

Broken Washer

it could be the direct drive coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. fill it up with water and see if it will agitate, if it will NOT agitate then it is a good chance that this is the problem. 0404472.jpg

worse case scenario is the transmission is bad, but this is unlikely.

Removing the Agitator on a G157 Hotpoint washing machine

Some models have a bolt towards the bottom of the outside of the agitator, depending on model. If it has one, take out out and you'll have to yank on it VERY hard to get of off (you'll most likely lift the machine off of the ground a few times in the process!)

If the bolt isn't there, its under the top cap of the agitator "somewhere". You'll still have to yank up on the silly thing to get it off after taking the bolt out.

Good luck!
