  1. Reduce the wash load

    If your Crosley washer makes a squealing sound, or if you smell burning rubber, stop the wash cycle and reduce the wash load immediately. Improperly loaded clothes may cause the spin cycle to become weak or allow suds to build up in the washer

  2. Tighten the washer's locking nuts

    If the washer rattles or shakes excessively, it may be unstable. Tighten the locking nuts on the washer's legs to help stabilize it.

  3. Close all doors

    If your washer doesn't start, make sure the dispenser drawer is fully closed. Also, open and close the washer door to make sure it is shut firmly; the washer will not start if the door is open.

  4. Check faucets and hoses

    If all doors are closed and the washer still won't start, check the water supply faucet. The water to the washer must be turned on for the washer to work. If the washer has trouble draining after each use, check the drain hose to make sure it is not twisted or clogged.
