Question about Admiral Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
The belt or belts transfers power from the motor to the transmission and pump. If the belt fails, the washer will be unable to pump out the water in the drum nor will it be able to spin the drum or operate the agitator. The washer will sound as if something is running (the motor) but everything under the lid will remain motionless.
The belt is a replaceable part. If you smelled the belt burning, chances are it has been stretched or is missing chunks and is damaged. It should be replaced after unplugging the washer and disconnecting the supply hoses. Next, determine that nothing is jammed and everything moves as it should. This would be the pump and the transmission. You'll probably have to turn the washer on its side to access the belts. Be prepared to mop up water that will spill once laid on its side. If pump or transmission is jammed, the motor will probably burn up the new belt, too. Make sure nothing is preventing the agitator from working - this could be clothing wrapped around / under the agitator. It is possible that something has become lodged in the pump housing. You won't be able to see it - but you should be able to turn the pump - if either of these won't turn, you'll need to get them turning freely before you can expect the motor to spin the belts.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rat emy reply. Thank you.
