Question about Admiral Washing Machines

1 Answer

Is my problem in the coupler, clutch or pump?

I have an Admiral Mega 22 Plus top load washer Model # AW20N2V. In the past I had issues with it not spinning on the regular load cycle but most recently that issue had seemed to have almost disappeared. Within this week my daughter used it to wash her clothes. From what I have been told it was a large and heavy load with sweaters, etc.. Upon moving to the spin cycle it would not spin. There was also a burnt smell. Her wet clothes were removed and I bailed the water out by hand as I continued to try the spin cycle hoping the weight reduction would let the spin cycle spin out the remaining water. At times it woud try but the washer sounded rough and noisy and then it would just stop. The following day, I made one last effort and the spin cycle, with a bit of initial clicking, did kick in spinning out the remaining water. Is my problem in the pump, clutch or coupler? I already have a timer on order.

Washing machine does not spin.


Thanks for using FixYa. If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. The motor coupler may be broken. Many washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. A belt may be broken. The clutch may be worn. It may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Replace whichever part has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My Admiral AW20N2V will wash and agitate but will not spin. What do I need to do to fix this problem?

Depending if yours has a gear drive or belt, these are the most likely problems.

Model 80 top load Kenmore-tub wouldn't spin without help

Hi, Does the washer agitate at all? If the washer won't agitate or spin, it is probably the coupler. The coupler is the piece that connects the motor to the transmission. Is that the piece you see broke?
Take the motor out and change the coupler.
If the coupler is ok, then the clutch might be the problem.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

These are plastic and will need to be replaced with new.
Once you have sourced new hinges then the machine top needs to be opened,
Electrically Isolate the machine, then at the joint between the machine front panel and top insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the lid catches, tilt back the top to access the screws on the hinges and replace with new.
