access panel in frount, 2 screws to take out. if you washer is not spinning but washes try the tension pulley is not tight enough. to cured problem of not spinning if tension is not tight. check if the plastic pulley is turning if not get it loose and put greases on it. there should be a metal sleeve fasten in the pulley. but if it is rusted to the other shaft it spins on you will never know it was to be fasten in the plastic pulley. i broke them lose and greased tighten the spring and it should work good. time to time might want to grease it.
for the other person if you machine sounds like it is winding to go in to outer space, it most likely the bearings. they are 100 each and there are 2 of them. plus seals. i used mine for a year before i locked up, if you like the performances of that machine get it fixed. the $1200 front loader i just bought went back and the old AMANA is getting fixed.

There is indeed a drive belt to the imperial 70. Problem more likely is in the 'wig-wag' unit that engages and disengages the spin clutch and the agitator drive

Sounds like a whirlpool or inglis type belt drive with a loose belt or bad basketdrive[clutch].
Could be the set screw backed out on the basket, thats a pretty common problem.
I'd need a model number to know who made it though.

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

Our washing machine spins, but it doesn't spin our clothes out. Everything comes out still very wet, even more so if it is a heavier load. It almost seems like it is being slowed down by something but we...


Change the belt, a worn belt causes the machine to spin slower.
Tilt the machine back and the belt is accessible underneath the machine, simply remove and replace no tools required.

Washer does not work well on spin cycle admiral aav7000aww


No you need to check ur clutch, u can check it by running the spin cycle for a few minutes then shut it off and turn machine up so u can look under it. get a spray bottle with cold water and alil soap detergent, then spray the clutch with it, if it shows or steams up or sizzles then the clutch is slipping and bad. the cluth is in the center near the tranny, should look like a round siver pc of metal about 5 inches in diameter

Admiral washer, spins too slow so clothes are still soaked


The clothes being wet and the drum spinning slow are probably due to a worn belt, tilt the machine back and the belt can be removed and replaced from below with no tools.

If the machine is constantly filling with water the level pressure switch requires changing. Isolate the machine, use a knife or thin bladed tool and insert between the front panel and the top panel approx 4" from each side to release the clips, the top should lift up, the pressure switch i at the back LH side, you will see a small pipe attached to it from lower down the drum, replace the pressure switch pull off the terminals and the hose and replace using the same order of connections.
