Question about Crosley CAWC529JQ Top Load Washer
The washer fills and drains fine. It makes a loud grinding noise when it starts agitating. After a minute it stops, making the noise only intermittently. The same thing happens during the rinse cycle.

SOURCE: extra loud noise when spinning
most likely the main spin bearing at the top of the transmission just below the spin basket and seal
the bearings dontjust go out for nothing either,you will need to be replacing the tub kit seal also
not the easiest of repairs,may need special tools to remove the seal nut assembly...

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

The transmission could well have caused the failure but the smoke was almost certainly from the drive motor.
The cost of replacing them both is probably prohibitive.
Unless you are really into preserving the environment (and your machine) it may be time to retire it.
I don't know where you are but I would estimate the cost of the transmission at $120-150 US and the motor at $60-100 only for parts.
With the growing complexity of many machines, I tend to stick with those using older technology and keep my fingers crossed that they have not cheapened the quality too much.
As we equipped a new house 3 years ago, I did a lot of research and found essentially no machine that was 'bullet-proof.'
We finally bought Roper machines and have not had any complaints to date but have a small household so not much stress on the machines.
Roper has been owned by Whirlpool for years but my experience with direct Whirlpool branded machines really stinks; refrigerator died due to a low-voltage condition that occurred while we were gone requiring a new comperessor, washing machine thatate its transmission in < 3 years, etc.
All were purchased new.

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.
