Crosley Washing Machine Troubleshooting. The Crosley washer will not turn on if the water hose, drain hose or electrical cord is detached or loose.
Verify that the power supply is properly connected to the incoming water and that the hot and cold water settings are correct.
If there is a loud screeching noise from within the washer or if you detect an odd plastic burning smell coming from within it, stop the washer, remove all clothing from it and open its lid or door.
Crosley Washing Machine Troubleshooting
The following is a discussion of some of the problems with washing machines.
Crosley Washer Will Not Agitate
Motor couplings connect the motor and gearbox. When a washing machine is overloaded, both the motor and gearbox will be protected by the coupling breaking.
Normal wear may also cause the coupling to fail. Inspect the coupling to find out if it’s broken.
Once you’ve determined that it is indeed damaged beyond repair, you’ll need to replace it with a brand new one. During operation, the door lock secures the washer door shut. When the door is closed, the washer begins to operate.
The washing machine will not be able to start if the lock is defective. Inspect the lock for any damage. If damages are found on the door lock, replace it with a new one.
To test if your new door lock works regularly or not, use a multimeter and test each of its switches for continuity.
Crosley Washer Will Not Spin
The clutch enables the transmission to connect with the spinning inner tub in your washing machine.
It helps the tub gradually get up to the desired spin speed. If the clutch is worn out, it may stop the inner tub from spinning and allow suds and water to sit in your washer rather than draining properly. If the clutch is worn out, it cannot be repaired.
The drive pulley is attached to the wash drum and rotates the drum with the motor and drive belt.
The drive pulley might wear out, causing the belt to fall off, making the washer unable to spin.
Removing and inspecting this specific part will help you determine if it’s defective. You can replace it with a new one from your local appliance parts warehouse if it’s damaged.
Crosley washer won’t drain
When the lid is open, the lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning. It also allows the water to drain when it is closed by completing a circuit that does so.
If this mechanism breaks, the washer will not be able to drain if it is opened during operation and the laundry load will likely be ruined.
To determine if this assembly has malfunctioned, use a multimeter on any given single lid switch of your device by testing to see if there exists a continuity between its soldering points. If there isn’t, it should be replaced.
A coin trap is a small area in the drainpipe where coins can get caught and stuck. There are some washing machines that don’t have one but in most cases they do.
If your washer has a coin trap, check it to see if there is any build-up or obstruction.
When this happens, it can either slow down or completely stop the water from running out of the machine which means you may have to wait for quite a while before it does.
Crosley Washer Will Not Start
The Line fuse blows if the cycles are overladen with too many tasks to accomplish. The cycle will not run if the line fuse blows.
Test the fuse for continuity using a multimeter to determine if it is faulty. If the fuse is faulty, replace it. Additionally, you should find out what caused the fuse to blow and fix it.
Check for shorted out components such as the machines or power supplies in your current cycle status.
Even if it doesn’t seem to be working, check that the power cord is connected to an electrical outlet. If the outlet does not get power but you’re sure that it should be doing so, check for a disconnected wire.
The problem might be in your home’s circuitry and not just with the socket itself.
Alternately you can plug another electrical device into the same circuit or where an extension cord could reach to see if the wiring still works properly. If you cannot run any electrical appliances, call an electrician for assistance.
Crosley Washer Stops During A Cycle
A water inlet valve opens when the rinsing cycle begins to allow water into the washtub. If something goes wrong with the water inlet valve, it may cause a delay in the cycle before stopping it from continuing.
You can test the water inlet valve of your washer with an ohmmeter to determine if it is defective. If you notice there is no continuity, you should replace it because this would be an indication that there is an issue with the part.
The timer may be defective. It is common for the washer’s timer to be incorrectly diagnosed because people tend to think to check it first but resist the urge to rule out other more likely possibilities before replacing it.
Use a multimeter to check if there is continuity in the wires that are directly connected to the timer pins to determine if the timer is defective. Consult the washer’s wiring diagram for more information.
