A Crosley washing machine that won’t go into the next cycle can be an extremely frustrating and difficult issue to resolve. The issue could be caused by a variety of reasons, from the simplest to complex. We will discuss the most frequent reasons why the Crosley washer isn’t advancing into the next cycle and then provide step-by-step instructions on how to fix it. No matter if you’re an experienced DIYer or a first-time fixer-upper this guide will help you solve the issue and get your Crosley washing machine back into good working order in a matter of minutes. The reason that a Crosley machine won’t move to the next cycle is contingent on the kind of washer that you have. Top-loading Crosley washers isn’t able to advance to spin and drain cycle if there is a problem with the lid switch creating the impression that the washer lid is open.

The Crosley washer that doesn’t finish the cycle could have a broken timer or failed water-level pressure switch. A defective or malfunctioning drain pump, or the shifter assembly for a top load vertical Crosley washer may result in it stopping mid-cycle. In addition, excessive suds can cause this washer to stop before the cycle has finished. For the front-load Crosley washer, a damaged door lock assembly of the washer or a malfunctioning main electronic control board or malfunctioning motor control board could stop the Crosley washer from finishing an entire cycle. This type of washer often sends out a digital error signal when the control for the washer detects an issue and shuts down the cycle.


Replace the washer lid switch: The lid switch on a top-loading Crosley washer is a safety switch that determines if the lid on the washer is shut. The lid has to be closed when the basket spins. should the Crosley washer detects incorrectly that the lid is open the machine will not spin or drain after washing. Top load Crosley washers require that the lid be closed prior to the motor’s beginning. Top-load Crosley washers that have top-loading can’t fill if the lid is open. If the lid switch does not detect whether the lid is closed, replace the switch.

Change the Crosley washer-shifter assembly: The top of the gearbox is where the shifter assembly is located, often referred to as an actuator-in-a top-load washer. The shifter assembly’s motor shifts the drive system’s settings between agitation mode and the spin mode. The position of the drive system is tracked by a sensor located within the shifter. The washing machine will cease if the sensor, motor or mechanical component of the shifter assembly fails, and give an error code. Replace the assembly of the shifter if it malfunctions.

Replace the Crosley washer door lock assembly: The door lock assembly of a front-load Crosley washer has a safety switch that can tell if the washer door is closed with a latch, as well as a locking mechanism. If any of these components fail when the door is open, the door will not close; however, if one of the components fails while the door is closed, the door won’t open. If one component fails, replace the entire assembly.

Replace the main Crosley washer controller: The main electronic control board (also known as the mother board) regulates the timing and execution of washer component functions. It controls the fill valves as well as the drive motor, and the drain pump.

Replace the Crosley washer timer: The timer, also known as the cycle selector, is the dial that can be used to regulate the frequency of the Crosley washing machine with mechanical controls. The timer makes the Crosley washer go through its cycles, from initial filling up to the final spin. Replace the timer in the event that it fails to allow the washer to progress through its cycle.

Replace or repair the Crosley washer drain pump: The drain pump eliminates water from the Crosley washer at the right times during the washing process. The bearing of the pump can become stuck and the seal may fail or the impeller blades may break. A belt-driven pump can have its belt break and the pulley can break or shear. If the Crosley washer is leaking the hum could be an indication of a damaged pump. In certain situations, you can repair the pump by cleaning the debris out and fixing wiring issues or replacing a seal. You can replace the pump if it is impossible to repair or replace it.

Replacing the Crosley washer motor control board: The motor control board is a board for circuit control inside a front-load Crosley washer that is typically located in the lower part of the washer, near the drive motor. It regulates the speed of the drive motor, as well as the direction in which it’s directed for the motions of the spin and tumble. If the motor does not run it’s possible that the motor control board could need to be replaced.

Replace the Crosley washer water-level pressure switch: The water-level pressure switch measures the level of water in the tub. If the pressure switch for water level is damaged, the washer won’t fill properly. It might not fill correctly or it might overfill until it overflows. If the pressure switch doesn’t accurately detect and control the level of water inside the washer, replace it.
