If it is 20+ years old the spline inside the top of the agitator is likely stripped. it can be replaced or you can get a complete new agitator for around $50. great old machines. if you take off the cap at the top of the agitator and there is no bolt, then you can just pull the agitator off. it will likely be hard to remove, stuck with built up soap scum. use a leather belt under the bottom and pull straight up and keep you chin out of the way.

My hotpoint washer will spin but will not wash or rinse, the agitator makes a noise as it attempts to wash and then rinse. the spin seems to work fine


The agitator shaft has splines at its top which fit inside a splined area inside the agitator. Sometimes the splines in the agitator strip; then you would need a new agitator. If that is not the case the problem is within the mechanism. There is a repair kit available for that, but you need to take the mechanism out of the machine. I am assuming that you have the "direct drive" machine, recognizable by the pump sitting at the front, in the middle, under the tub. If you have the older, belt driven washer, please get back and I will explain.

No agitate/no spin/yes spin in rinse


this is a drive shaft issue. this shaft is connected to the gear case and the gears may be stripped or the clutch may be damaged. there are many plastic parts here in this area that can break due to heavy load or just old age. replacing the internal parts and clutch will fix these issue you are having.

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.
