Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

Tub will not drain or spin

This washer is a model LNC6745A77 designer series large capacity. It hums when it goes into spin cycle. I can smell hot wires and cannot turn the tub but can barely turn the agitator. It will not drain the water.

    Will not drain. Agitator gets stuck when moving clockwise however I can move it anticlockwise quite easily.

    i have this same problem with my admiral washer. mine is 13 years old and it has worked perfect until now. i turned on the washer to do a wash, it filled up completely then as it starts to spin it it click with a humming sound then shuts down. i smelled sometihing burning. unplug it and waited about 15 min. moved the tub around a little, plugged it back in and it started working again. but i don't know for how long.

Dear customer,
i recommend you to kindly check the following parts of the washer..

  • Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the lid switch (some models)
  • Inspect the water pump
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect the motor coupler
    • Inspect the agitator
    • Inspect the motor coupler
    • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
    • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
    • Test the motor
    • Inspect the pulley
    • Test the transmission

    Maytag legacy series washer


    The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

    Washing machine has smell (burning) and doesnt spin or drain tub.


    Sounds like the belt may need to be changed. it eh pulley are spinning but the belt is not, nothing will spin and the friction of the pulley against the belt will cause a burning rubber smell

    when it went unbalanced the tub most likely broke the lid switch part

    During the spin cycle the washer does not drain the water. The cycle ends but the water remains in the washer. This happens in all of the spin cycles. I have a kenmore model heavy duty extra large capacity...


    It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

    Sometimes does not spin enough to wring out water from clothes.


    The spin cycle should be on a timer,and shouldn't be able to change how long it spins.The same timer that controls all the cycles of your washer.Your pump may be trying to go out,and isn't removing the water fast enough.This will keep water in the tub,and the normal spin cycle isn't long enough to let the pump get the job done.Another problem might be a clog in your drain hose.Another problem could be the drain hose is set to high above the pump,and the pump can't push it up that high (shouldn't be a problem if you are using the hose that came with the washer,and not extending it with another hose or something.)
