Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Will not agitate or spin without assistance

After starting a wash cycle the washer will fill, then will not begin to agitate or spin. If I prop the lid open and slightly turn the agitator by hand, it will then run properly and finish that part of the cycle. I am guessing that this is a transmission problem and eventually the washer will quit altogether??!!

    My washer will not agitate or spin without manually moving the cycle. It will fill and then continue to wash until I manually move the cycle to spin. It will spin out and then refill for the rinse cycle but will continue to rinse until I manually move cycle to spin again. The entire machine moves across the floor while spinning.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.
