Question about Magic Chef CAV4000AWW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have an old top load Magic Chef washing machine. I noticed that clothes have been coming out very wet lately and I have been re-running the spin cycle. Today when I tried to re-run it, I noticed that it didn't seem to spin so I started experimenting with it. It sometimes spins, sometimes doesn't, there doesn't seem to be a pattern. When I turn it manually clockwise, it gets stuck after about quarter of a circle, counter clock wise it seems to manually turn. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

First thing to check is the belt it is normal for it to not turn in both directions. There is a brake.

I have a magic chef 20 lb capacity heavy duty washer model W20HN3S serial ME851474 with spin problems. Clothes come out soaking wet. Can I replace a belt?


If your washer will wash (agitate) your clothes but does not spin well, you will need to replace the "thrust bearing" in the washer. The repair is simple and will only take you a short to do. Here is a link to the "thrust bearing kit" you will need.

Laod with bath towels won't spin out


hi, you may find that the towels when wet are to heavy for the belt to grip the drum if it spins with normal clothes in you need to reduce the load when you wash your towels, hope this helps.

Itis a 'no spin".


It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
