First tilt this machine back and examine the belt assembly and then start the timer at spin and note the action. If you see one pulley **** and try to turn check to see if it is the motor. Then try it with the belt off. If the motor spins free let it for 2 minutes to ensure it is not failing. The worse case is the gearcase has failed and will need professional help.

Wash started cycle. Wife stopped it at beginning of cycle. Now washer will not start at at. Lid switch is good. Will not spin, rinse, restart wash, nothing, not even clicking.


Does unit have a reset button? If it has manual control for cycle did you try going clockwise to the start position and then restarting?

If she stopped the cycle by opening the door perhaps that switch is still stuck in an open position.

Admiral washer. Did load of laundry, breaker tripped, and is still full of water. Reset breaker, and hear a small click after I pull knob to restart washer. Breaker trips. No leak, and outlet is good


The washer tripped the breaker once and OR after the breaker was reset it ran additional loads with no problem then it tripped the breaker again.

Intermittent problems are always difficult to diagnose because the problem usually doesn't occur when you're making the checks.

If the washer ran additional loads the problem will not be an electrical short with one of the washer parts. If the lid switch had a short it wouldn't run the additional loads.

You don't say if the additional loads used the same cycle as previously. A timer can have an internal short that might trip the breaker in heavy duty cycle but not the permanent press cycle.

If you have access to a clamp on amp meter, see the image below, then you can check the amp draw of the washer. The washer normally will draw about 10-15 amps at start up and about 5-8 amps while running. The house breaker for you washer should be rated at 20 amps.

If the washer is running and drawing less than 20 amps and the breaker trips then if can be a weak house breaker.

Mid cycle the washer is most likely draining or spinning and if the bearing or pump locks up then the washer may draw additional amps to try to start and trip the breaker.

The key to this problem is what the amp draw of the washer is when the house breaker trips.

To narrow this problem down, there are three places that could be causing the ( outlet) GFCI to trip, a malfunction in the washing machine, a problem with the downstream wiring (aka load side of the GFCI-other items connected on same circuit), or the GFCI outlet itself. If there isn't anything downstream, then plugging the washing machine into another GFCI outlet, or simply swapping out the outlet for a known good GFCI outlet, will identify if the outlet itself is faulty.
If the outlet trips when the washing machine isn't running and isn't even plugged in, then there's a fault in the wiring on the load side of the GFCI outlet.
If the issue is neither of the above, then running the washing machine and monitoring to see which step is occurring when the trip happens will isolate what part of the washing machine may be leaking current to a ground. It could be a certain water level, a motor being engaged, a transition step in the controller, etc
Beware some techs believe that most Washing machines or any other motor should not be on a GFCI! Should be a dedicated single receptacle. If there are other outlets on the washer GFCI, replace that GFCI with a single receptacle and put the GFCI on the next jump in order to protect other outlets.

Another item to check is ur lid switch which may have gotten moister inside and created a short_ or broken open and the rubber seal dried out over time, and the switch assembly will be exposed. water can splash onto the assembly, somehow causing the GFCI to trip. In any event, if you are having trouble with your washing machine stopping mid-cycle for any reason, test and replacing the lid switchis probably a worthwhile idea, as it is cheap and easy to replace.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Can soaking be done on Admiral washer?


Yes, just turn on to wash cycle then turn off to soak. I do it all the time. Soak about an hour, then resume wash cycle.

Washer wont agitate, pops breaker


Could be the gears/transmission for the agitate cycle are jammed, the motor then freezers, creates an overload and the breaker pops.

My washer keeps popping new circuit


You havent given details when the breaker pops. Is it right away, in wash cycle, spin cycle or drain? If it pops right away, there has to be a short circuit, but it fills water up then as soon as the motor starts n it pops, it could be motor. If blows during spin, definately motor drawing too much current. Then it could be the breaker that is weak/faulty. The breaker if not faulty it will pop if the current drawn by the motor exceeds it's rating or there is a short.

Our Washer has a loud "ticking" noise in the wash


Could be something like a bra strap between the inner and outer drums. need to remove the agitator and inner drum to investigate and remove.
Could also be a bearing in the drive gearbox, if this is the case the machine is not worth repairing as the box is sealed and not serviceable.

Washer fills but trips breaker when trying to start wash cycle. Does the same with rinse and spin cycles and when plugged into another circuit


Hi there
OK thank for writing to fix ya. Sounds like your breaker can't support your washer so you need to replace you breaker where it can handle you washer. just go up another 30amps on your breaker and try that. let me know how that goes.
Best regards Richard
