Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Admiral designer series, heavy duty 20 lb washer.

The washer won't agitate or spin. It just fills up and hums. I finally had a few minutes to follow your instructions, I opened the top and took the front off, and I may be missing something, but I don't see a belt. I see the tub with a post coming out of the center and it swivels all around. It is held in check by 3 springs. and then I see the motor. It is located in the front right corner (when looking at the machine). Wherever I am not looking, please straighten me out. I really appreciate this. If there's any way I can fix this on my own, I need to do it, as there is no way I can afford to replace it.

If one end of the motor is connected to the drum of the washing machine that is where your problem lies There is a gear inside of the housing connecting the motor to the drum i.e. transmission, this gearing is plastic and does easily break when a heavy load is done based on age of unit. What you need to do is seperate the motor from the tub. There should be a rubber boot that slides off to expose the gearing .. This gear will probibly look like a round piece of plastic about 3 inch in diasmeter once you get to the gear you will need to remove both sides of the gear. If at all possible do not remove the metal cover on the motor side of the device if needed to remove there is oil in that area so be careful you dont spill it all over.. If you need to remove this cover drain the oil first. Part can be purchased at any appliance warehouse trake the model and serial number of unit with you Good Luck

I have an Admiral 20 lb. capacity heavy duty washer, not sure what model. Machine fills up with water but does nothing aftet that, all controlls seem to work fine. Before this issue it would rinse and in...


There should be a module that does the agitation bit for the washer motor(Spins one way shuts off and reverses the spin etc) There may be a capacitor under the control panel that is not working any more so the motor will not start.

I have a magic chef 20 lb capacity heavy duty washer model W20HN3S serial ME851474 with spin problems. Clothes come out soaking wet. Can I replace a belt?


If your washer will wash (agitate) your clothes but does not spin well, you will need to replace the "thrust bearing" in the washer. The repair is simple and will only take you a short to do. Here is a link to the "thrust bearing kit" you will need.

Won't agitate


Ours did this and it was because the bearings had busted. I called a local repair guy and he told me over the phone just by listening to the sound. Maybe you could do the same. I do know this, if it is your bearings, buy a new washer. It's not worth the repair...trust me.
