Is it aking a noise like a loud jet plane? If so it is a bad bearing and you can call around to get prices but I know it is an expensive repair.

The washer keeps getting the water in even when the washer is not in use. there is constant water drifting along the rubber ring of the front door into the container

check fill hoses screens for silt,dirt also at the water valve screen. if dirty clean and replace the screens at hoses and clean screen at valve. if this wont work make sure water pressure is at least 20psi. if it is replace water valve if problem not solve or continue.

How do you clean a cold water inlet valve? Our city has had busted water lines and the silt has gotten into my lines.

unplug the washer, get at home depot "SILICON LUBRICANT", remove the fill hose, with a small screwdriver scrape the screen of the water valve and spray the lubricant to remove silt. repeat the proccess as needed. do the same at the faucet side. get new screens at home depot too. connect the fill hose at the faucet and take out the drain hose. put the other side at the drain and open the faucet to purge any dirt-silt for 2 to 5 minutes. install new screens at faucet side but not at valve side(valve has one already). open faucet and test wash. good luck to you.

Hello there: if you have disconnected the line tothe drain pump and it appears to be clear check all hoses first and if they are clear then yes i would have to say thatthe pump may be bad But to make sure remove the pump and i you can dissasemble the pump and inspect the internal parts a lot of time you will find lots of things inside of the pump that you cant see Also check the impellers inside of the pump that are used to pump the water out of the machiine these parts are known to wear out over time ok so please check the pump out ok Best regards Mike

Sometime there are water screens in both the hoses and the water vavle. Given you mentioned that in the rinse cycle the problem most often occurs it seems you still have cold water clogged screen issues. Turn off your water hoses and remove them at both the water valve and the hose bibb faucetts. Remove and Re-clean the screens under running water with an old tooth brush. It is not uncommon for a water system that has had silt intorduced into it to cause water fill flow problems for quite some time. That silt has settled in your pressure tank and your hot water heater. I would recommend that you attempt to drain and re-fill them both to at least minimize further silt introduction. In the mean time clean your inlet screens in the water lvale and hoses as often as necessary until the problem goes away.

Drain hose to crosley washing machine, where?

looking at the rear of the washer, my Crosley drain is on the left, about 4" from the floor and about 6" from the side. You might need to remove the back panel. Probably should anyway, so you can blow the dust/lint out of it

Water drains underneath washer

the load could be to small and all the water whats been left after the wash might be because you only need small pressure on a small wash and the pressure wont make the water evaporate. or you might just need a new drainage pipe i would put less water in next time and see if its better if not get a local self employed plumber.
