It is not uncommon for the water pump to lock up causing the belt to burn and even melt the drive motor pulley. Tip the machine back and check the pump. It should be easy to turn. The bearing will lock slap up on these type pumps with nary a water leak. To replace the pump you need a 3/8th nutdriver and a pair of channel lock pliers. You remove 2 hoses and 3 bolts.

Admiral machine will agitate, but will not drain or spin


Agitating and Spinning are from one motor. Pumping is not controlled by the same motor. If the pump is bad, it won't pump. Pump can be checked by measure the resistance of its terminal, and its measurement should not be open. If pump is good then the problem is from the pump controller. If pump is bad, then you know what to do.

Wash will not drain


Hi, When the cycle goes into drain, do you hear the motor humming at all? If the motor does not hum, check the lid switch.
If the washer agitates, there must be a problem with lid switch ot timer. The lid switch is most common.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

How do you diagnose a bad washer pump vs a cloged line?


Amana ALW480DAW seems to be not completely draining. When I start a new load water in basket becomes dingy and smells. Washer smells when it has not been used for a couple of days. We have checked the outflow and inflow drain tubes found no problems. It seems to spin and agitate normally, it drains to a point and leaves water in it, not visible in the basket. When we blow on the outflow tube when it is done draining there is still water present, we can hear it bubble.

Kenmore Washer will not drain completely


Some machines don`t drain all the water out.
Is it your pipe which goes from the washer to the drain.
These pipes can get very smelly.
I suggest that you just run some soda crystals through the machine on a hot wash cycle.
please try this and let me know what happens
best of luck

    The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
