Question about Hotpoint VBXR1090D Top Load Washer
I have the same exact problem with my Hotpoint washer. Water doesn't drain during rinse cycle. Washer just makes a rumbling / humming sound. I tried something that seems to make it work but doesn't provide a final fix to the problem. When I remove the drain hose from the drain and actually blow hard into the drain hose with pressure, it seems to initiate pumping and will pump down normally. I haven't taken the hose off yet to check if there are obstructions in the drain hose/pump. I know the pump has a small impeller that spins to pump water out. One of my thoughts is that some strings (from towels, clothes..etc) may have become tangled up on the impeller and maybe my blowing on the drain hose frees up or "kick starts" the impeller so it can drain. When I have time to take apart and examine the hose/pump area, I will post any new information from my findings. Good luck.

1)the drain hose is kinked
2)Does the lid switch click when closing?
3)Something in the pump or hoses? Check the hose coming down from the tub for socks, rags, etc.
5)Broken belt? Loose belt?
Also the pump would be the first culprit to check. I believe that the pump in this model is electric and not driven by a pulley, so switching out should be easy. First you want to verify that you have power going to the pump while in the drain cycle. If you have power going to it and it's not pumping water out you can be pretty sure that is the problem. The front panel can be removed by removing the two screws at the bottom and lifting out. Now you can get a good look at the motor and pump.
