Bad transmission 3 months after buying a new hotpoint washer I had to have a new transmission put in. Now after 8 months I have to put another new transmission in. Why are these going out so frequent? Do I just have a lemon?

Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!
YES YOU GOT A LEMON!
WATCH MAGIC AS I TURN YOUR LEMON INTO A CHERRY!
Here is what you must do!
I do this a lot for my customers!
We are a family business for over 65 years
READY??
You get together all the service invoices and organize your self with the sales slip and service slips and call GE.
Ask customer service for a supervisor!

Then we are going to get them to do a whats called a "PUSH-PULL"!!!!!

You tell them when you bought it and how many times service has been to your rescue! With documentation of dates
!
Be calm, nice and reserved! BUT FIRM!

You want them to replace this lemon with a brand new machine! And ask them if this is a model flaw .That you want another machine with an up grade so you are not going to go through this again with this model!
WARRANTY TIME MEANS NOTHING WITH DOCUMENTATION!

IT'S EASIER TO KEEP THE CUSTOMERS YOU HAVE THAN FIND NEW ONES TODAY!!!!!!
EVERY DAY GE OR SOME OTHER MANUFACTURE ASKS DEALERS TO DO A , "PUSH PULL".
THEY PAY US TO ORDER AND DELIVER AND PICK UP THE LEMON FOR RETURN TO THEM!
NO COST TO THE CUSTOMER!
Not even delivery.No matter what the dealer says to you about money! No money, honey! Got me?The companies forbid the dealers from taking any money from the push pull customer !
They pay us!!!
Unless you want to tip the guys on the truck.

Some times I've told my customer that when it's a lot past warranty that for good measure, Tell them,
"I just took a loan to remodel my whole kitchen, and I have gutted the kitchen and found all my stainless steel Ge profile appliances that I am ready to purchase BUT !
But I cannot in good faith follow through with this buy until I see that GE does indeed back up their product!

Your going to love the service and being in control!
You are fine now!
All will be right!

JUST , NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS CALM, SMOOTH, QUIET, AND HAVE A NICE PLEASANT ATTITUDE. ANGER GETS US NOTHING! iF SOMEONE WILL NOT PLAY BALL, YOU POLITLY ASK FOR THE SUPERVISORS SUPERVISOR!
AND ASK THEM TO SPELL THEIR NAMES AND ID # TO YOU SLOWLY!! THEN WRITE THEM DOWN!
I LOVE THIS!

MY COMPLIMENTS, NGFAM1
BLESS YOU!
PLEASE GIVE ME THE BEST RATING HERE ON FIXYA.COM BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

Water remains in the tub after spin cycle


Sounds to me like the Water Pump is bad. Hopefully if your machine is less than a year old you can get it fixed for free, if you bought it new it will have a 12 month warranty on it. If not you can always buy the manual for your washer and try to fix it yourself.

We have the hotpoint washer/dryer wdl540 but cannot get the dryer to work, all the clothes come out steamed! we'r not overloading the machine and have tried different combinations but still it wont dry -...


The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.

My hotpoint has quit spinning, how do I evaluate and repair


If it will not agitate or spin, you will need to replace the belt. If it will agitate but not spin, you have a bad transmission. This has been a nightmare to Hot Point (GE). I did warranty repairs for GE for 8 years. During that time, GE had me condemn on average 6 washers a week due to bad transmissions. Reason being, it was cheaper for them to send the customer a new washer than it was for them to ship me a new transmission and pay me to replace it.
Sorry but take my advise when I say, when you replace your washer, don't but a GE or Hot point. They still have not bothered to fix their transmissions.

Hotpoint WMA35 - Noisy on spinning


This could be the bearings.

If it is you have two options:
1 - Buy another washing machine
2 - DIY possible for about £30 with all the RIGHT TOOLS, £100 if doing it properly. And even with the right tools this will take you about 3 hours, probably more.

To replace the bearings you NEED to have:
1) The parts - The replacement bearing kit (£30) and hotpoint recommend a new spider (£65) as well.
2) A tool to push the drum shaft from the casing.
3) A tool to remove the beaings. It is possible to buy a new rear casing with the bearings already fitted for about £70.
4) Patience and a supply of tea!

Method
1 - disconnect everything and I mean everything see number 2.
2 - remove the drum casing from the chasis
3 - take off the pulley wheel
4 - open the casing
5 - remove the drum from the casing. DO NOT USE A HAMMER as the shaft deforms very easily (good job I've a new "spider"!)
6 - fit new "spider" if using. Here is where you find the bolts are rusted completely solid from spider to drum and require drilling out.
7 - remove bearings from casing (hence the need for the bearing removal tool)
8 - fit new bearings and rebuild machine (hence the need for the bearing fitting tool)

However I stopped at number 7 due to not having the right tools and I have no idea how much the right tools cost.

Trust me, take option one! £100 is a third of a new machine!

Odor


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Motor runs, but no spin.


You don't list model number so this will be a bit generic for Hotpoint top loader. If the motor spins but the belt is not moving: With power off, manually turn the large pulley the belt goes around, just a revolution is enough. Spin is CCW, but you may have to try CW (agitation). Now set turn the washer on spin again. This may unlock your transmission, but unfortunately is usually only a temporary solution. If the machine was manufactured prior to 1-1-06 and still under five years old, the transmission may still be covered under warranty. Check the back pages of your owner's manual. (labor would not be covered) If too old / not covered, I'd invest in a new front loading washer. The LG's are #1 rated in Consumer Reports and are direct drive (with a 7 year warranty on the motor) so there is no transmission, clutch, belt, or pulleys. You don't have to get the top of the line model, all LG's are direct drive and very good. Other front load machines, although not DD, will also use much less water than your hotpoint and spin out twice as fast or more, reducing dry time and dry cost. I know this wasn't what you really wanted to hear (bad news), so don't bother rating this "solution". (don't want my rating to go down just because I told someone bad news about there machine.)
