Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I just bought this yesterday.

The first two loads i did went perfectly.

Now, when i try to start a load, the water loads for 15 seconds, then shuts off and the wash cycle doesn't go beyond that. it just stops.

I've checked the hoses, they're running fine and connected. The water that's coming in seems to be pretty brisk and isn't a slow / small stream. I just seems to shut off.

    I have the same problem. The washer is less than 1 year old and I moved it yesterday 1 foot to change out the hoses. Now when starting a load, the water runs for 15 seconds and shuts off.

    Bought mine Friday the Aug.8th. It's a ATW4475TQ top load. Wash cycle would put in about 4 inches of water and then quit. I would have to go switch the water temp nob to hot/cold. Then it would not go through the rinse cycle at all. Home Depot replaced for free, delivered new one yesterday. Now the new one will give about 4 inches of water and then switch to hot water. I have to put the nob on hot/cold to get cold water. I have no idea what water temp is in the rinse cycle, but rince cycle is working. Is this an Admiral problem? Should I give Home Depot another shot? I would like this one repaired rather than a 3rd new one to try-out.

Try double checking your drainage hose depth. We just put ours all the way in, and our machine would shut off. As sson as we put it at reccomended depth, no problem!!

Sounds like your timer is not working correctly. I would suggest replacing it, as there isn't a way to repurchase timers.

GE Washer fills but will not run through cycle

Sounds like a bad motor. It's likely shutting off from it's internal thermal switch. Try unplugging the motor's molex connector and replugging it, it could also be a loose connection.
Good luck.

Kenmore front load washer

Machine is draining slow...probably from debris caught in dain hose or pump filter. Many people find safety pins, loose change and bra underwires lodged in the drain trapping lint, threads and other items which are narrowing or blocking the drain. The machine will only go into spin if it drains within a few (timed) seconds. Otherwise, the machine senses too high water level for spin out and shuts down.

Maytag neptune,shuts down within 10 seconds after start button is pushed

If it has worked for a year and your able to choose different cycles with the same result. It seems to functions with one common element failing. If the control unit cant detect how full the machine is with water it will shut down. Sounds like a water problem steming from your pressure switch. Not sure which model you have but usually it will sit on the water pump or under the console with a clear hose if under the console. If so a quick test of attaching an ohm meter set on continuity then blowing lightly to see if under pressure the switch reacts by closing if it doesnt then the switch is bad.
