If just the top portion of the agitator does not work, you are likely looking at and agitator dog problem. Yes, it's a silly name for the part, but that is what it says right on the manufactures replacement part. While you are in there, I would also recommend replacing your thrust spacer as well as they get brittle over time. So, once you have part numbers 80040 (agitator dogs) and 8055228 (thrust spacer), here's how to swap them out. First remove your fabric softner dispenser. It should have a blueish/ green ring around it. The ring locks it in place. Lift the ring and the dispenser will lift off. Next, as you look down under where the dispenser was, you will see clear plastic with a black rubber ring around it. There are 2 tabs sticking out of the top of it, just grab these (needle nose pliers would make it easier) and pull it up. Under that you will find a bolt (7/16" if I remember correctly) Remove the bolt and the whole agitator can lift out now. If only the top half comes off, don't worry about it. the bottom half can stay without a problem. As a matter of fact, the thrust spacer sits between the 2 halves. Now, the area where the bolt came out is a seperate piece. It may or may not be held in by two white plastic tabs at the bottom. If it is, just work the tabs off with a small flat head screwdriver. Once this piece is seperated, you will now see your agitator dogs. There is a ring holding them on from the bottom. Slide the ring off and replace all 4 dogs. Wipe any extra fabric softner and shavings from the previous dogs out. Re-assemble in reverse.

SOURCE: Admiral washing machine is not spinning.

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer runs but wont adgitate


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® 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. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor 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. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley

Agitator sounds as if it's stripped


The agitator and drive gearbox are all one part and are not serviceable (sealed), if it is the gearbox the machine is possibly scrap as the part is more expensive than a new machine. Will need further investigation.
Is the spin OK (quiet) the motor rotates one way to agitate and the other way in fast to spin, the belt may be removed at the middle pulley (Below) rotated in each direction to test. try the machine without the belt and listen to motor.

My admiral washer wont spin the clothes dry


Probably not getting upto full spin speed, drum may wobble more than usual?
Change the motor drive belt below the machine, tilt the machine 45 degree backwards to access underneath, belt pulls off and replace same way.

Admiral washer is doing a lot of vibrating...it is level


Possibly a worn drive belt on the underside of the machine, causing the drum not to get to full speed, clothes will be wetter after sping plus vibrates heavily - replace belt.
Tilt machine back for access to underside, simply pull belt off and replace, tension is automatic on motor.
