I have a top load washer, seeming to a 1992 model. Everything still works fine. The only thing is that I see oil comes out of the bottom. I am afraid of going to cause big problem in the near future.

My Hotpoint VBXR1070 washer tub will not spin. The motor seems fine and spins, but the belt seems loose and has apparently been rubbing on the metal support housing. Is it possible that the belt has...

yes, the rubbing could definately have damaged the belt, so I would begin by replacing the belt first. you may also have a problem with the clutch pulley which sits on top of the motor. if you remove the clutch you must replace the clutch clip as the old one will not hold again. hope this helps.

Hotpoint washer , top load

This sounds like a faulty water valve. Water is coming in the cold water valve when it shouldn't. If the machine has an automatic temp control make sure it is turned off.

  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.
