Question about Hotpoint VBXR1090D Top Load Washer

Open Question

We have a Hot Point washer model VBXR1070W1WW. In order to use the time/dial we have to push in really hard for it to catch, or the dial and know will just loosely spin without actually moving the timer. This has resulted in the the knob and timing being off. So, we're having to guess if we're doing knits or regular wash. How do I take the knob off? Do I have need to just replace the compression, dial assembly, or the entire timer? Please advise.

Filter is located in the big hose from the drum to the pump, called the sump hose
Access is via a removable panel at the rear of the washer. remove hose and clean filter.

SOURCE: washer not spinning at the spin cycle but water drains

hi there,
If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:


* If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt.
To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it
doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn,
replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


* If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin
and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the
door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the
switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside
the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top
or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


* The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small,
relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the
motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


* A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or
badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing
machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


* The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper
spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the
clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance
repair technician.


* The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation
the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to
burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace
the entire motor.


* The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a
transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the
unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem,
you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


* The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub
to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during
the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed
For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch
prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.



* Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the
water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the
fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so,
completely replace it.

SOURCE: 'test' displayed on washing machine

After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.

ALL THE BEST!

You need to seperate the 2 halves of the door, remove all screws securing the 2 halves together, and prize apart.
You will then see how all the parts are fitted.

I have a Dayton time switch hot water heater timer model 2E214 7 day timer in a house that I just bought. Don't really understand how to use it. Where can I find a manual or user guide? Or can someone ...


1) Dayton 2E214 timer is Grainger number for Intermatic 7801B timer.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/INTERMATIC-Electromechanical-Indoor-7-Day-2E214

2) Grainger page also show extra on-off trippers for the timer

3) Same/similar timer shows for water heater on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html#T7400

4) I have a similar manual in my files:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/t7802b-2no-2nc.pdf

5) Intermatic site is offline this weekend but link to iNTERMATIC manuals is following:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/mechanical%20time%20switches/7%20day%2040%20amp.aspx

6) If link above does now show exact product, then type Intermatic model number into search bar, and it will show manuals.

7) To operate the timer, attach silver and gold trippers to face of dial. See image below of Intermatic 24-hour dial.
The trippers are labeled on and off.
Buy more trippers at grainger if needed.
geno_3245_296.jpg

ON tripper pushes lever that closes circuit and turns water heater ON.
OFF tripper pushes same lever other direction that closes circuit and turns water heater OFF.
Dial rotates as time passes.
To set current time, rotate dial until current time lines up with pointer. The pointer is stationary.
I believe this model has to be reset after power outage.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

We have a timer on our tankless hot water heater-how do I set it to reflect the current time? It is a large dial with tiny pins to pull/push backward. I understand the on off function of the pins but need...


very simple you push the middle and turn to set it to the timing you want current timing. the best times to set a recirculating pump in a water heater is 20 to 30 min before you take a shower in the mornings 15 min is adeal and dont leave the timer on for more than 15 min which represents each pin. Remember you are trying to recirculate the cold water out off the lines and replace it with new water so next time you open your faucet you get instant hot water. ones hot water is in the line you do not need the pump. i also recomend to set the pump 15 min before you get home or before you take a shower int he afternoons there is really no pint to leave the pump all day or for longer than that because the objective is to replace cold with hot water you can even set it to turn on and off every hour for 15 min at a time if someone is home all day but remember usually the recirculating pump is there for the faucets that are far away from the water heater so if you do not used them all day and only in the morning and at night before going to bed then there is really no point to leave the pump on and waste more electricity.
