If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.

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.

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.

Washer seems to be stuck on spin. Has slight oil/rubber burning smell. Will only advance out of spin if you manually turn the knob to the next step.


The timer is bad and needs to be replaced. if you continue to run it this way you will need to replace the motor coupling real soon. That is where the burning rubber smell coming from.

Loud in spin cycle/throws oil


If the pulley wobbles, it sounds like a bad bearing, and that could account for the oil/grease. One more thing you might check, mine acted bad in the spin cycle, but mine was the leveling spring at the bottom of the drum. The way to tell from the top is if the drum tends to lean forward instead of being centered when sitting. Good luck.

My washer shakes real bad when spinning and makes a rumbling noise


You washer drum is running eccentric and so there is violent action while it is spinning in the cycles of wash and spin.
The fault gets unbalanced when the spinning cycle is ON as the clothes loose the weight of water and needs a stabilizing with a damper/suspension system.
Hence a fault in the suspension of the drum can be the element of fault. You will need to check if there is friction in drive system, check for free movement of the shaft.
Make sure the dampers are not faulty if so replace.
Finally check if the spring suspensions have gone out of the frame , changed or shifted.If so realign the springs to have the drum in the center.

Admiral Washer makes loud steady noise during spin cycle but washes clothes & completes cycle. Possible bearing problem?


If a front loader type, try lifting up on the drum. If it clunks and seems to move somewhat easily, it is probably the front bearing on drum rear support shaft--a major tear-down to replace. If a top loader, try tipping the basket (that spins) in several directions--if it makes clunking sounds, try removing the agitator and check the tub mounting bolts at the bottom center for tightness. If ok, tip the tub again and watch for movement. It may have a bad bearing below the tub at the center area. Remove the tub bolts and pull the tub out revealing the drive hub underneath. Don't know if you would have to drop the transmission to repair what you find. Good luck!
