Question about Hotpoint VBXR1070W

1 Answer

Tub shakes back and forth during agitation

Is it normal for a Hotpoint VBXR1070W tub to rotate back and forth (roughly 10 deg.) with each twist of the agitator? With a full load of clothes, this results in a rhythmic thumping noise, and the clothes don't seem to circulate as briskly as they should. I pulled off the front panel to observe the operation, but can't see anything amiss.

    To Julianfix: Thanks. Would I access these screws by removing the agitator? Also, it's the whole tub assembly that rotates back and forth, both inner and outer.

It could be the inner tub thats loose , check for a broken screw at the center mast that holds the inner tub. hope this helps.

The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

Agitator quit working during wash cycle. If I move timer to rinse and fill with water then move timer to spin the agitator works fine and drains water from the tub


depends on what u mean by agitator works fine on spin? it doesnt do anything on spin cycle cause its not suppose to? if ur saying ur not getting any wash agitation? then I suspect ur cam dogs inside agitator are bad? remove the 7/16 bolt nut and remove top of agitator and u will see the cam dogs underneath it. there fairly cheap like 5-10 bucks for a set, if u can push the agitator back and forth when its all together in tub, and its catching the teeth and not easy to move back in forth, their not bad, but if u have no resistance then they are bad

Hotpoint washer spins but does not agitate


CHECK THE WATER PRESSURE SWITCH AND THE DOOR SWITCH, ANOTHER THING TO CHECK THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR? CAN U TURN THE AGITATOR INSIDE DRUM MANUALLY AND SEE IF IT ENGAGES THE DRUM, TURN IT BACK AND FORTH AND IT SHOULD LOCK AND GRAB THE TUB?

Makes banging sound during agatation cycle, tub and agator both rotate back and forth.


Lift the top cover of the unit from the front of the unit once it is free from the front locking clips, which hold the cover in place. Two things you need to inspect for damage. 1) You should see four rubber straps, which should restrict the movement during the wash and spin cycle (cost is around $4.00 each). 2) Check the shocks on the tub support rods and plastic hardware for damage.

This is for an LW7503W2B washer. We have water on the floor during agitate with large loads. The water is comming over the edge of the tub. I have noticed the tub rotates in what I would call a slow...


I had the same problem. You need a brake kit. it holds the drum still while in the agitate mode. the centrifical force of the water during that slow spin is causing the water to spill over the top of your drum. easy and cheap fix.

Basket spins while agitating causing water to overflow when full load is selected


you could have a bad transmission. usually the motor and transmission turns one way for agitating and the other for the tub to spin.
