SOURCE: drum off balance

It's either a bad suspension spring or you have a crack in the tub support.

SOURCE: I have an Admiral washer

The washer has a floating motor mount. Sometimes the motor mount will stick in one position and the belt will slip during the spin. UNPLUG the machie. Get some blocks of wood and clock up the front legs 4 to 6 inches. Then reach under the bottom and just squeeze the belt together. Your trying to get the motor mount to slide in it's mount. (normal) After you let go of the blet the motor should retension the belt. Do this several times forcing the motor to float. You can if necessary shoot some WD 40 around the mount sliding area. DO NOT get it on the belt. Remove the belt if you have to and reinstall it after you lubricate the motor mount. Any oil will work if you do not have WD 40. Like I said DO NOT get any oils on the belt. After your done with lubrication squeeze the belt mid point again and let go. The belt MUST re-tension. It is not a horribly tight tension but tension that is noticed.

If after you do the belt tension check / motor mount slide lube and you still have the problem just respond here. There are more things that can be checked. I will gladly help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa

Admiral dryer timer not turning and no heat

It could be the high temp fuse on the element and the timer not turning depends doyou have it on the auto dry because it will not advance if it is not heating because the sensors are not detecting a decrease in the humidity levels because the element not working.

Admiral model lnc6762b71 tub dosen't center itself

Check balance springs at the bottom of the tub/drum. To gain access and remove front panel insert a knife or thin blade approx. 4" in the from each side in between the front seam on the front panel, this will release the lid clips, lift and hinge back the lid panel, remove the two screws securing the front panel and remove, there are 6-8 springs at the bottom, check all are intact.
Also check drum is rotating at full speed, if not check and replace drive belt below the machine, tilt machine back to gain access, flip belt off the pulleys and replace same way.

I just purchased a Admiral Top Load washer Model #ATW4675YQ and I noticed it DOES NOT fill for the rinse cycle. Is this normal? It puts a VERY small amount of water in the tub and then drains. Why is that?...

Well after reviewing this model on home depot website, (out of everyone thats takin the time to leave reviews on the website - ) 65 people gave it one star, some of those people wanting to give it zero stars, some peole, within the first few comments I read stated an issue with not much water, and all of them (so far out of the 65) have reported nothing but problems.

you may try this (this is direct copy and paste from what someone said)

I have had problems from day one. It often starts in the rinse cycle and doesn't get clothes clean. Customer report says you have to unplug it so it can reset so it'll start with fill, wash & THEN rinse. It also makes an ungodly amount of noise and sounds like someone kicking a trash can.

sorry for your problems

Admiral atw4675yq doesn't dispense warm water

So I was lucky enough to buy the extended warranty with your same unit and when I noticed the same issue, I called the technician.
What he tells me is that this time of year, city water is too warm to require the addition of hot (71 degrees as read at the flow). Apparently to meet the Energy Star requirement, the temperatures were lowered from what they used to be.
He suggested that I wait until Dec/Jan until my cold water temp gets into the 60s and then listen for the hot to kick in intermittently.
From what I have read on the web from other customers of various other makes and models, this problem does not seem to be restricted to Admiral.

Hope that helps. Take care and have a good day.

Afmial washer makes a loud squeeling sound all the time

The squeal is most likely the belt. check that it is in place and not coming loose or stretching out. The other culprits could be the water pump, the bearing to the drum, or the motor, in that order of likelihood.

Washer is out of balance. it just leans to the left side and makes loud noise like metal on metal.

It sounds like your drum support, and/or balance mechanism inside the washing machine has broken. You will need to open your Washing machine and inspect the Drum Support, and the balance mechanism. Hook it back up or replace it if it is broken.

remove the front panel and check the securing springs at the bottom, probably one has snapped, replace the set.
Check for dust - evidence that the snubber washer has worn also
