Question about Crosley CAWC529JQ Top Load Washer
Washer will fill spin and drain fine but agitation is weak. I checked the belt no cracks and it seems tight. When turned by hand the agitator moves I am guessing correctly in both directions. If it is a clutch problem I do not know how to check it.
Clutch is only used locking into spinout. Is drive coupling is loose or torn, if not you are most likely talking about a bad transmission

Your spin cycle control seems to be bad. This is also called your timer. Check for power supply by pulling off your top panel and checking for power everywhere.

The clothes are wet after spinning
When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Hi, there is a lid pressure switch that controls the motor during the spin cycle. if the lid is up, it will close open the circuit that controls the motor and it will shut the spin down.
Now, if this lid switch is broken or lose, it will not allow the spinning action at all. your lid pressure switch is damaged or lose at this time. i recommend inspecting this switch that is located under the lid rim. check the wires and connection clips for a lose fit. if the wires and clips are in good condition, this Will confirm the switch failure. replace in this case. i will link you to a replacement switch you can order on line if you choose.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a washer that has a weak agitation or no agitation at all, here are some possible solutions. You need to check your belts. Most washers have one or two belts. Check your lid switch. If a lid switch is bad, it can cause the washer to not work properly. Sometimes, they will not work at all. Make sure you check your drive motor. The drive motor controls the spinning, draining, and agitation. Most washers have the reverse motor, meaning the shaft rotates in both directions, clockwise and counterclockwise. It is possible to lose one direction and not the other. Some washers have a clutch that controls the agitation. If it is bad or worn, it may prevent the agitator to work. Most of these washers come from General Electric. You could have a bad motor coupler. They are located on the side of the motor drive inside the washer. It is also possible that you have a bad transmission. Check the agitator itself. You could have a bad spline or two. The splin accompanies the shaft and allows the movement of the agitator. If you rule out all the parts above, you may have an electrical issue or an issue with the control board. It is very important to test each part and make sure it is getting power. If a part is not working and not getting any power, the power loss may be the reason that it doesn't work. You can test the current in the wires with a voltage meter. Thank you very much for reading this tip and thank you for using Fixya
