Retarder ratchet slips during wash cycle

Hi. During the wash cycle, the retarder ratchet wheel turns when the motor is turning "anti-clockwise". It makes a grating sound. I'm pretty sure this is not meant to happen! It doesn't happen always. There is an adjustment screw which stops the brake pawl. Maybe adjusting this screw might help the problem? Any ideas? Thanks

SOURCE: My Haier HW-C1460TVE-U washing m/c keeps giving (CLrF) ERROR Code

Anyway, my machine shows an error code "clrf". I just spoke to someone at Comet, and apparently this means there is too much foam in the machine. The machine will then refill with water and try to rinse it out, but if after that the machine still has too much foam in, then it will stop the cycle. Hence why my clothes are still wet (although I'd not realised they weren't rinsed properly either!).

I have not been using excessive amounts of washing powder, and usually use powder tablets or the liquid tablet sort, so they are a set amount and I don't do anything daft like stick 6 tablets in! I find it ridiculous that this would cause a problem with the washing machine, as I've used them perfectly fine with other washing machines.

Anyway, the advice from Comet was to keep trying different washing powders until i find one that foams less.

Speed queen top load washer does not agitate properly

you need to see if the motor turns one direction during wash and the other during the spin. If so, your gearbox is faulty and needs replacement. If motor only goes in one direction at all times, then very possible, the timer is faulty.

Are you the smart one to figure out my automotive problem or are you just talk!!! Guru or no Guru. Her goes. I have 2003 mercury mountaineer has to much fluid in tranny but not enough in torque converter....

you have torque converter back flowm seen it a million times...

A hydraulic retarder and control composed of an accumulator, for rapid filling of the retarder; a pulse valve, for controlling fluid flow to and from the accumulator; a regulator valve, for limiting the inlet pressure to the retarder; and a pair of check valves, for preventing fluid flow from the retarder to a pressure source and from the retarder to the accumulator. The pulse valve is controllable to provide rapid filling of the retarder, while the regulator valve will direct fluid from a secondary source to the retarder and control the pressure at the retarder inlet. The accumulator is filled from the main pressure source, between ****** requests, at a rate that does not disturb the main transmission pressure level. One of the check valves and the pulse valve prevent the fluid in the accumulator from returning to the system other than when a ****** request is present.

Everything is working except the spin cycle

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

Washer make a clicking noise

Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. back.
