SOURCE: Admiral Washing Machine not spinning

Make sure the safety switch that the lid operates is getting pushed down. Use a popcicle stick or non metalic object to push the switch in and try to get it to spin. This switch goes bad alot. It is in a wet environment. You will normally hear or feel a click when the switch is depressed. If not, use a putty knife or butter knife to push the top retainer in that are located at the front outer corners in the gap just where the top of the machine meets the rest of the unit. While pushing in you should feel a slight resistance but it should spring in and allow the top to lift up. Make sure to unplug the unit first.... Find the switch and unplug the two wires from it and use something like a paper clip or small wire to connect the two wires together. Let the top set back down, doesn't have to snap down and try to get it to spin again. If this works then the switch is bad... There are plastic parts on some machines that push this switch when the lid is closed that get broken off without you noticing until it just doesn't work right..

SOURCE: loud noise while agitating in wash cycle

If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

Your problem sounds like a defective water level switch, the rinse switch bypasses this switch therefore your get water whan you go to rinse.
lift the top cover, look at the front of the machine, insert a flat knife approx 4" in at each side of the seam between the front panel an the lid to release the clips, this will allow you to lift the lid, the water pressure switch is at the back (usually round with 3 wires and a small hose to the outer drum low down, ensure the small hose is connected, or with a mais tester check the output (orange/purple wire terminal 2), no mains voltage=no water, the input is grey (terminal 1) from the timer and should be live, the 3rd wire is the output telling the timer "the washer is full" (light blue terminal 3) and will be live when full.

SOURCE: Admiral Washer model #LNC6757 will not agitate

Possibly a loose agitator, try lifting the agitator, if it lifts then it is un secure, remove the softener cap and down inside the agitator you will see the fixing bolt,
You will need to lift out the agitator to retrieve the bolt if it has come fully un done, refit the agitator and secure using a socket and long extension bar.

You have possibly 2 senarios there. One is possibly your capacitor is defective and two if cap is good, your main motor is faulty.

Admiral washer machine tub appears loose and unattached in rrear


First of all is your machine working or not?
If it is working and it's a front loading machine. The machine drum is hanging inside the machine using strong springs that helps it to reduce vibrations during washing and spin cycle.
When machine goes into spin(dry cycle), it usually shakes a little.

Instructions
things you'll need:

* Laundry detergent
* Clean cloths
* Measuring tape
* Plywood (if necessary)
* Wrench (if necessary)
1.Verify that the Kenmore top-loading washing machine is completely plugged into a grounded, three-prong power outlet. Reset the fuse or circuit breaker, if necessary; do not plug the washing machine into an extension cord.
2.Make adjustments to the feet on the washing machine if it is shaking or vibrating. The front and rear feet must all be touching the floor evenly. If the floor under the machine is flimsy and cannot adequately support the washer, set a 3/4-inch piece of plywood under the machine for better stability. Load the tub evenly when placing items inside the washing machine and do not overload the tub.
3.Examine the washing machine drum, including between the inner and outer basket, if the machine is clicking or rattling during use. Remove loose objects from inside the drum. If objects are caught between the drums, unplug the washing machine and pull the items out with a pair of pliers, if possible.]
4.the fill hoses behind the washing machine if there are water leaks and ensure the drain hose is connected to a laundry tub or drainpipe. Look at the plumbing throughout the home for drainage problems and correct as necessary.
5.Turn on the water valves behind the washing machine and clean the water inlet hose screens if the water is not running or filling. Do not overload the tub, and use only high-efficiency (marked HE) laundry detergent in high-efficiency Kenmore washers. Note that energy-efficient washing machines often use less water than other machines; this is normal.
6.Choose a wash cycle with a higher spin speed if the water is not draining as expected or items are extremely wet when washing is complete. Reduce overall load size and select a new drain/spin cycle to remove the extra water from the washer. Ensure the drain hose is properly installed on a drainpipe or tub and is not set more than 96 inches above the floor.
7.Reduce the number or volume of items inside the washer tub if the clothes are not rinsed when the cycle is complete. Verify that the water valves are turned on and the correct type and amount of laundry detergent is used.

Yes sounds like you have now disturbed the seal and will need a new one, remove the agitator and inner drum to get at the seals, to remove the agitator pull off the softner cap and remove bolt form down inside.
To remove the inner drum, the top part of the washer needs to be hinged back to gain access, to do this insert a flat balde 4" from each side at the seam with the front panel to release the clips, lid will now hinge back to give access to the drums, on the outer dum there are clips all the way round to remove the top section of the outer drum release these. remove the bolts under agitator to remove the inner drum. you should have access to the seals but it has been a while.
Reason for not agitating in first place is probably the water level switch at the rear of the drum with a small 8mm hose connecting it to the drum.

Washing machine making loud rattling noises and smells of burning rubber


Your washing machine has a belt on a pulley and that belt is being stretched. That belt is attached to a motor that turns your laundry tub. Your washer if out of balance will shake and rattle and the tub might be locked in place and the motor is forcing the belt to turn but the tub is not turning. If you are not mechanically inclined call a washer service repair man.

The washer water won't turn off once it has filled for all three load sizes.

Admiral Top Load Washer Model LNC6762B71 overflowed


Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.

Admiral Washer smells like mildew


yes it could . If you are trying to pump the water 7 feet or more above the floor then it will at the end of the cycle get air into the drain hose causing cavatation, the result when the machines stops is the water running back down the drain hose back into the tub and that is what causes the musty smell.
Lower the drain if possible
