Hotpoint VBXR1090 Washer

My washer sometimes won't Aggitate, a couple nights ago, it quit.
I pulled off the front cover, felt the motor, it was pretty hot.
I replaced the stabilizer cords on each side yesterday. One was broken.
When I let it cool, it started working. Does the motor have a load relay on
it that when it gets hot, it stops ??
Sometimes it won't aggitate on a small load neither.

Sounds like your brushes need replaced or your motor would try the brushes first

Hotpoint washer won't spin or agitate and has black soot - is clutch out?

The motor coupling is attached to the shaft of the motor. The "soot" is probably the result of the coupling shredding prior to failing

Washer aggitate for 20 seconds then stops, starts

This could be your control switch. Remove the front cover at the top that has the dials on. Check main switch unit, it probably needs to be rebuilt, about $35 or installed new.

Washer will not spin. Does everything else.

If it aggitates, then the tranny and motor coupling is ok. the drive assembly is bad. nintey perent of the no spin problems is motor coupling problem. But since yours will aggitate, then the coupling is fine.

Aggitator won't work and won't spin/ drains ok

Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.
