Question about Hotpoint VBXR1090D Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Leaking on floor

First of all, the model number from our "inherited" Hotpoint reads:
VBXR1070WOWW ... Was this changed at some point?

Looking under the machine on the left side, about 12 inches back
from the front of the machine, water drips are visible from the
framework. Sometimes there are puddles and sometimes not.

Any input appreciated...

I have a hotpoint ultima wt746, every time it spins its really loud and it walks across the floor, i have had hotpoint out to it to many times to remember, they always change the shocks and it never solves...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya:
Thjese machines have a device on them called a out of balance switch on them that senses the movement of the tub and when it is out of balance it is supposed to do 1 of 2 things
either shut the machine down or let it run in a lower speed
So what you can do is first slide the machine out away from the wall about 3 feet then tilt the machine back so that the front of it comes off the ground at least 12 inches then set it back down
This will reset the switch if it is still working then make sure that the unit is 100% level in the front and back and both sides then try it again and if it does it again then i would be calling the manufacture and telling them the problem with the make and model number of this unit
Some of these units are under recall for this very problem ok? and see about the warranty
Hope this helps
Best regards Mike

Dry-spin doesn't work, because after rinsing the clothes are still wet. MOD- VBXR1070WOWW SER-SZ107967H

I'm assuming this is a G.E. brand because of the model number. Take the four screws off the very bottom panel of the front of the washer. Inside you will see a twist off rubber cap. Place a pan under it big enough to hold 2 quarts, and twist the cap open. When the water comes out and it is empty remove any accumulation of lint, loose change, etc. This should be done monthly to help the washer discharge the water on spin cycles.

Also, inside the door is a flat rubber ring. At the bottom pull the flap back. There are small holes there for the water to drain out. Lots of stuff accumulates there too, even as large as a pocket knife or ball point pen. Check that daily when washing.

Leaking washing machine - hotpoint aquarius 1100 - wm63

water leaks are very hard to locate as the water always drips from the bottom, it is just a case of detailed looking, after a while there will be a dry white mark where the water has dried out, this will show where the leak originated from, there are a few things at the front of the machine that it could be, sorry can't help much more nearly all parts can be bought by the public and with common sense and taking very detailed notes where wires came from etc, most jobs can be done by a competent diy person with basic electrical knowledge remember water and electric do not mix always unplug from power supply where working on any appliance
