Question about Crosley CAWC529JQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer sounds like a cement mixer!

I have Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer. It washes fine, but when it spins it makes a brief but loud scraping noise once for each revolution. When it gets going fast, it is louder than a cement mixer!!!
At the end of the spin cycle, when the brake operates, the same-sounding noise is continuous until the spin stops.
That seems to narrow the noise source to the brake mechanism.
I don't know what damping pads do, but I think the brake band area might be misaligned somehow, and the brake band padding has worn out, thus is now scraping metal-to-metal once per revolution. I'll take a look, and post what I find ...
Anybody else had that problem? What was your solution?

Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer LEAVES LINT ON CLOTHING

try washing on a shorter time as this washer may have too good of wash action and the lint is fabric coming off your clothing
add more soap powder and do not buy the cheapest soap as the soap is important in the washing cycle of your machine
towels that are not too soiled brobably need 6 minutes at most on wash
if this machine has a delicate wash cycle use that for tee shirts etc
water pressure is important in rinse cycles
do you have high pressure and water only trickles in check water inlets on back of machine where the hoses screw on
good luck

Highspeed spin is not stable...

Is this a brand new machine? If so make sure the shipping pins have been removed. They are attached to a yellow strap coming through rear of machine. Pull the strap straight out and there will be 3 pins that are attached to it. You should be able to move the basket and tub around by hand freely. If this is not the problem you may have a base pad broken or missing.

Spin Cycle/Machine makes noise and moves

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 !
