Question about Admiral AAV7000A

1 Answer

Washer belt is loose, & seem to slip at start of spin cycle.

I've replaced the belt several times. Belt shavings are always on the floor below the motor. Motor shifts good from forward to reverse. I've greased the slide for the motor so it would not hang up when it went to spin. New belt does not seem tight enough. Washer agitates fine but sometimes barely spins on the spin cycle, I think this is when the belt is shredding. It never smells hot. The washer is a Admiral LNC6762B71
The appliance store says I'm getting the right belt. It's a Whirlpool belt #
3557. The pulleys on the motor, pump,& the drum all look in good shape. The washer seem to have more problems with a big load over a small one naturally. Tub does not appear to over full on a big load. Spin cycle works correctly once the tub start to pickup speed, water is completely pumped out & clothes are dry. Drain is clean & open.

There are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?

Amana washer doesn't spin consistently.I have replaced belt and timer. Starts spin cycle and runs for about 6 to 10 seconds and shuts off.


Could be that the pump is binding which will eat belts up pretty quick, feel the belt and make sure it is not slipping and that it isn't all greasy and grimmy

Kenmore Series 80 Washer Drips and Spin Cycle Sometimes Has Low Torque


Does it leak every time it's run, or only occasionally? It could be that the belt on the drain pump is going bad or is loose, so it works some times but not always. Could be that the belt broke or the drain failed, so it will always leak from now on. It's hard to say without actually taking it apart and having a look

My washer squeals when it's in the spin cycle. And the clothes seems a little too wet still.


It is possible that the belt is slipping inthe washer in the motor drive.
Check below in the washer and check the belt, the belt tension,. if the beltt seems worn out replace or adjust .
Now check the drive for friction, use some light oil to lubricate the motor and the drive spindle.
test to confirm.

Pump works. Spins when empty/no load in tub. clutch slips when loaded


If the drive belt is slipping during the agitate and both spin cycles for loaded conditions, I suspect that the drive belt is excessively worn. If it slipped only during a loaded spin cycle, I would have suspected that the sliding motor mount is gummed up and not moving to a belt tighten position during the start of a spin cycle. Since the unit drains with no problem for loaded and unloaded conditions, the pump belt should be OK. Replace the drive belt and clean the dust, gunk, detergent, etc, out of the sliding mount to make sure that it tightens properly when a loaded spin cycle starts. Note that on most models, the drive belt is designed to slip when spin cycles first engage, and they will continue to slip until after the drum has accelerated.

HI The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

My Magtag Performa washer has been shaking in the spin cycle very violently lately. The floor has not changed, so I can't blame an uneven floor. I'm assuming the belt may need to be tighten or replaced. ...


first I would check your drain pump.. you may have something blocking the water flow... this will cause the water not to fully drain and your machine will have a out of balance load...a loose belt will just slip and make noise,,,

there is a panel in the back you can remove to check the drain pump...let me know if this is helpful...
