Question about Washing Machines

Washer wont agitate or spin

Admiral designer series heavy duty 20 lb washer, won't agitate or spin. You have all tried to be very helpful, but as yet, the solutions don't seem to apply to what I am seeing inside the washer.
I have removed the front and cannot find a belt. (maybe I am not looking in the right place?)
The motor is not attached to the drum, it is bolted to a plate which is bolted to the floor of the washer. I don't see a rubber cover of any sort.
The motor moves some and there seems to be something coming out the bottom of the motor and goes through the floor.
The motor will swivel about 2 inches from side to side, and the plate it is bolted to is not secured in the front, so I can lift it up about an inch.
I am probably just not explaining myself very well, but I so appreciate all the help you are trying to give me.
Please, if you could give me step by step instructions to find what you want me to look for, I would be grateful.

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.

Kenmore heavy duty series 70 won't spin


Will it drain ? IF wont drain either , then the lid switch is bad . (The piece on the washer where the lid actuator goes into the washer top ) . If it will drain , then the motor/trans coupling is bad , if it will not agitate/spin .

Admiral designer series, heavy duty 20 lb washer.


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

Kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate


this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

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.
