Re: WON'T SPIN DRY
You need to check if there is power to the motor. If so the motor is defective.If not, the timer may be the problem. There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the unit. Using a voltmeter, trace the power.

First of all check if the motor is hot or there is friction on the drive. Since you had noticed some smell then the best option is to trace the smell which must confirm the case. It could be the motor or possible capacitor or within the power supply or drive output.
its probably the drive belt that you smell burning under the basket,but there are numerous things that can cause it to burn,so you need to find where its froze up could be a clutch,the brake,the drain pump
The belt or belts transfers power from the motor to the transmission and pump. If the belt fails, the washer will be unable to pump out the water in the drum nor will it be able to spin the drum or operate the agitator. The washer will sound as if something is running (the motor) but everything under the lid will remain motionless.
The belt is a replaceable part. If you smelled the belt burning, chances are it has been stretched or is missing chunks and is damaged. It should be replaced after unplugging the washer and disconnecting the supply hoses. Next, determine that nothing is jammed and everything moves as it should. This would be the pump and the transmission. You'll probably have to turn the washer on its side to access the belts. Be prepared to mop up water that will spill once laid on its side. If pump or transmission is jammed, the motor will probably burn up the new belt, too. Make sure nothing is preventing the agitator from working - this could be clothing wrapped around / under the agitator. It is possible that something has become lodged in the pump housing. You won't be able to see it - but you should be able to turn the pump - if either of these won't turn, you'll need to get them turning freely before you can expect the motor to spin the belts.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rat emy reply. Thank you.
Same problem, same model admiral. The smell is motor overheating. Once cool enough, it will continue with it's cycle. I took the top off and watched it run. The motor stopped and smoke rose from the motor located at the front right corner. I am scrapping mine and buying another washing machine. This admiral has been trouble since we bought it 5 years ago.
normally, slow then build up of speed is a sign of the motor brushes wearing. this may cause squealing under load. the pump pulley may be hard to turn due to hard water calcifying or a build up of dirt... you may want to check the pump out before it becomes another problem. also,are the bearings in the drum dry? the belt also does not need to look as though it is about gone before it needs replacing... it could be that the belt is slipping whilst under a faster loading... try some belt grip spray to see if this cures the noise.if it does,then you are certain you need to replace the belt(s)
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?
with the belt off the pump pulley should turn freeley if it does then with the belt off and in the spin position start the washer with the lid down the motor should run
it it does then you have a transmission problem
if the motor does not run then there is a electrial componet problem
