Question about Haier XQJ50-31 Top Load Washer
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
See the diagram attached. God bless you

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.

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.
