Question tub spins while agitating
Model Number: VVXR1040T5WB   Brand: Hotpoint   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The tub on my washing machine just spins around while it's agitating. I'm not sure why or what I need to fix to stop this. I can only use it to wash a small load because the centrifugal force of the spinning while it's agitating makes water come out the flood pipe or whatever it's called. I read in an old manual that it's the transmission, but that was a different machine so I'm hoping it's something easier. Either way, I need to know what it is and how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated

Remove the front panel. Rotate the inner basket by hand. Does the transmission rotate with it? If so, the brake is not holding. The brake is part of the transmission. Unless your a good mechanic, you would need to replace the transmission. If the basket moves around but transmission does not move with it, then there's a problem with the basket attachment. (tub nut, split washer... etc.)

Thank you for answering my question! Yes, the transmission does rotate when I turn the basket. I have another one (the one this one was going to replace) I'm going to take the transmission from that one to see if that works because it's pretty expensive. So, now my question is, do I need a new tub seal when I change it? I have to get a spanner wrench to get the tub nut off first so it will be a couple more days until I can work on it again anyway. I'd rather order it all at once if I can. Thanks!

If it hasn't been leaking, it not necessary to replace it.
