Question about Hotpoint VBSR3100D Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't drain or spin

When it hits the drain / spin cycle it sounds kinda like a cell phone on vibrate, but more hollow and not steady - more like a bolt bouncing around on top of a running lawnmower. It just sits there vibrating sound. Sometimes it is just silent - nothing. It did work once on perma press cycle. It drained and spun. Wish I would have quit there. Now it is full of water again.

What causes my frigidaire top load washer to vibrate and make rattling noise during spin cycle

My washing machine won't go to high speed spin to remove water from clothes.

Possible there is no switching for the cycle from the controller or there is speed limited due to sensor action for vibration. Check the leveling of the machine, if not use rubber footing to hold the machine steady.
Also check the drives for friction , if so reset and lubricate.

I am getting a vibrating noise from my washer right before the final spin. Levleling looks good. This happened a couple days ago. We drained out the water and the washer would work again, but would stop at...

It sounds like you could have multiple issues but a possible cause of the vibrating right before the final spin is a broken shock absorber if one or both are gone it will throw off the center of gravity inside the machine and allow it to move freely and at high speed or even low speed this is not good. part number for both shocks is 134560400. If your machine just stops before the spin cycle and only drains, you could have a faulty door switch. the washer will not spin for safety reasons if this is gone. part number for the door lock switch is 131763245. as well the striker that hits this door switch can be broken and sometime pieces will be left inside the mechanism. part number for the striker is 134456640. The last cause of your washer not spinning could be a motor speed control board, if this is faulty, the motor will not receive the proper amperage to send the motor into spin cycle. speed control board part number is 134409904. Hope this helps.
