Question about Admiral AAV7000A

Tub fills only 1/2 full but water keeps running as if the tub is not full. If the water level is set to 1/2 or less, tub fills 1/2 full and begins to cycle. The water is running into the tub but not filling. It is as if the water is leaking out of the tub as it is trying to fill up

Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.

Our washer is not filling with enough water. We set it for a large load and the water level is that of a medium or maybe even less.


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

All new washing machines in the US, as of 2011, must comply with Govt energy regulations. Save water & Destroy your clothes! This model has 2 pressure switches. The main one (on the left) controls the wash water level, and the rinse level switch (unseen, mounted to the right, controls the rinse water level. BOTH ARE ADJUSTABLE ! First - UNPLUG THE WASHER ! Tilt the control panel back. You will see the two pressure switches. In the center of each is a silver adjustment screw going into a white plastic plunger. Using a 3/16" socket or nut driver, turn the screw on the RIGHT SIDE pressure switch clockwise until it is almost all the way in to the white plastic plunger. The next step is a little trickier. Being careful not to touch any wires, Plug the washer in, Set the water level to HIGH, and start the washer . Raise the Lid, and observe the incoming water. It will stop when the pressure switch is satisfied - but the water level will be rediculously low. As you did with the Right side switch, adjust the LEFT side switch the same way - only 3-4 turns at a time. After each adjustment, push the white plunger in and it will begin to fill again. When it stops filling, check the water level - you may have to repeat this step 3 or four times, until the water level is 3 - 4" below the white plastic guard on the tub. That's it, Unplug the washer again, tilt the control panel back down & lock it in place. Plug the washer back in, lower the lid & let it run through the cycle. This repair will probably void your warranty, and is not recommended to ANYONE who is not familiar with tools, machinery and electricity. To those who can, **** the torpedoes and full speed ahead ! To those who can't, show this to your repairman. The advantages are 1- Cleaner clothes 2- Less damage to clothes 3- Less wear & tear on the machine, as it doesn't have to work as hard moving the load in too little water.

Your problem sounds like a faulty water level switch,not your fill valve. With the machine empty at the beginning of your cycles, the switch should internally be in the "empty" position to energize your fill valve solenoid(s), then when the machine completes the filling to the level selected on your water level knob, the level switch repositions to the "full" position to energize your timer to advance the cycle. If the switch is stuck in the "full" position all the time, as soon as you pull your timer knob out to start any cycle, the machine already thinks it has filled to the desired level, and immediately energizes your timer to advance to the wash step and begin agitation, even though the tub is dry. I will refer you to the following link for a video showing you the fill/switch replacement procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIs9gX0YjxI&feature=related

I hope I've addressed your problem as described

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Washer will not fill up!


The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.

My washer keeps filling no matter the size I have


This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
