I have a draining problem with my machine. A pillow got stuck during the spin cycle and it ripped it open and now all the stuffing is clogging the machine. We got a lot out and we checked the drain hose and it is clear. I need to know where and how to check I guess under the tub to clear out more stuffing. It now spins since we cleaned it more. But it will not drain. Please help I have a family of five and lots and lots of laundry.

Re: vbxr1090b0ww hotpoint washer
There is a large hose that runs from the basin to the pump. I would recommend checking this hose from the pump to the basin. It is probably plugged in there as well as in the pump inpellor. look under the machine to find the pump.. White/clearish plastic with 2 large hoses running to it

I have a similar problem - washer wouldn't spin or drain. The problem with my Kenmore 90 series is that the lid switch needs to be replaced. It's a safety feature. During normal operation when the washer is spinning or draining - and you open the lid - the lid switch sensor knows that the lid is opened and then "stops" the machine. A new lid switch needs to be installed. I have picked up the part, but am still trying to figure out "how" to get inside of the washer. The only difference between what you describe, and my problem, is that there is no "unusual" noise coming from the machine. Hope this helps lead you in a good direction. Another good site is Bob Villa's site.
your washer must drain to spin.you may have a blocked or failed pump.you get to it thru the frount.use a putty knife between the lid and the frount ,push the springs.top comes up take frount off.pump has two hose .pumps white or tan smaller.God bless,tom
there some simple solutions but may not always work but everyone should try. underneath when the water pump engage with the tub. there;s a white plastic clip press it out and turn the water pump. it will come off the tub. before doing this you should have the washer disconnected. have someone or put something under so the washer won;t fell on you while reaching down. sometimes debris gets stucks on the way from the tub to the pump. it insert your fingers inside once the pump is taken out and if you find debris take it out. put back the pump and connect the washer again. this can be a very simple solution it won;t work all the times. but what if it does. :)
