My admiral leaks as soon as the water turns on

There are a few places that a washer could be leaking:

1) the water valve itself, it may be cracked (most are plastic), or the hose connecting it to the spout may be loose.

2) the hose from the water valve to the spout (as above) could be loose from spout or water valve. It also may be cracked or have a cut in it from wear on other parts.

3) the spout may be damaged or loose from the back plate making it misaligned so the water spills over the side of the tub.

4) the washtub may be missing a spring that keeps it centered in the machine causing the fill spout to spray water over the side of the washtub.

5) There may be a leak in the tub, pump, hoses for the pump (not likely since when it leaks)

That's all that there is to leak when it does not leak all the time. (if it were all the time you could throw the supply hoses and valves in the mix.

Hope that helps

Admiral aw22 will not drain

in a spin cycle the pump must work hard so i think something is inside the drum perhaps a plastic bag or some plastic perhaps thats melted to the heating element you need to fully drain and empty the machine lay it down on its side and remove the drain pipe from the underside most modern machines have a bulb in the rubber pipe that has sometimes a cage that contains a plastic ball this is used to regulate the water below it is a filter at the pump so you must unloosen the pipe and check all parts for rubish and crud and remove it and also check inside the drum end for any bra wires or plastic bags lego monopoly hotels nintendo pens basicaly anything a child can post to the powder drawer that then ends up between the drum and the machine you can also take the top off and shine a bright light then you can see anything thats been impailed on say a plastic inner drum and the metal wash drum if you see what i mean i think that you have some blockage somewhere that shows up more in spin mode as i said this is the worst mode for water so you should expect even a minor blockage to show up here

Cold water isn't coming on, only hot?

Not sure what ur saying have u tried changing the hot cold hoses and see what happens? u may have a bad water inlet valve or a bad water temperature switch? first make sure ur getting hot from the house outlet, u can check with a multi meter for continuity to see if either is out

After 2 yrs. the cold/cold selection doesn't work at all but the other selections give me hot h2o only. Also, rinse cycles just stopped working!

Your water inlet valve has 2 electric coils on it. One for hot --one for cold. The cold is probably bad. Most newer machines use COLD rinse only so if no cold fill it just stops in the rinse cycle. Replace the inlet valve which is the part on the machine back the hoses hook to.

Washer does not work well on spin cycle admiral aav7000aww

No you need to check ur clutch, u can check it by running the spin cycle for a few minutes then shut it off and turn machine up so u can look under it. get a spray bottle with cold water and alil soap detergent, then spray the clutch with it, if it shows or steams up or sizzles then the clutch is slipping and bad. the cluth is in the center near the tranny, should look like a round siver pc of metal about 5 inches in diameter

When should u add softener?

Dear seymour,

please rate this solution if it meets ur need else choose fixya.

Fabric softener is one of those things we don’t think much about, but use frequently. How does it work? How is it used? Fabric softener is essentially a chemical cocktail that helps soften the fibers in textiles. It makes them feel less harsh and has anti-soiling and anti-staining properties. With such names as Diethylenetriamine, Aminoethylethanolamine and Triethylenetetramine, these chemicals sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but they are mostly byproducts of animal fats. Fabric softeners come in two types: liquids and dryer sheets. The liquid softeners are added to the rinse water for each load of clothes. Dryer sheets are paper or sponge-like pieces that are coated with the dry softener and are added to the dryer for every load. Some liquid softeners tout that they will leave clothes brighter and prevent discoloration from chlorine. These claims must, of course, be evaluated by each person.

Fabric softeners are used in any form to help make clothing feel softer and to prevent static cling. Anyone who has unloaded a batch of towels from the dryer in winter knows exactly what static cling is. Dryer sheets lubricate the textile fibers to reduce static electricity generated by the drying process. Liquid softeners serve much the same purpose.
There is a great amount of information about fabric softeners on the Internet, and while browsing, a person will undoubtedly come up on Web sites saying the chemicals in fabric softeners are dangerous and can cause a whole host of illnesses and allergies. There is no doubt that some people are allergic to the chemicals and/or dyes in fabric softener. They can cause rashes or upper respiratory distress. Some manufacturers have started producing dye and fragrance-free liquid fabric softeners in response to this problem. Some small companies also produce a vegetable-based, dye and fragrance-free softener that is biodegradable and less likely to cause allergic reactions. There are also some ways of softening the laundry without using any kind of commercial fabric softener. Vinegar and baking soda soften the fibers naturally. A person can add one-fourth cup baking soda to the load at the beginning of the wash cycle, and then a half-cup of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Another home recipe suggests diluting 1 cup of glycerin in a gallon of water and using one-half cup of the mixture per load of laundry. Still another method uses three parts water to one part commercial hair conditioner. Fabric softener should only be used with standard fabrics. Fine washables such as linen or silk should not have any kind of fabric softeners used on them, if they are machine washable. The chemicals can destroy the look and feel of a fabric like linen, and dull colors in silk. However, most standard cotton and polyester blends are safe with the use of fabric softener. Dryer sheets are a blessing for socks and towels, since these items seem to be most susceptible to static cling. Liquid fabric softener can also usually be diluted to one-fourth strength in order make it last. There is usually no discernible loss of softness or increase in static cling when the softener is diluted. Each person needs to decide whether using a commercial fabric softener is appropriate. Those with allergies or very sensitive skin may want to consider a home recipe, since they are made of ingredients that are readily available. People also need to remember to keep the fabric softener from their fine or delicate washables, especially linen and silk.

Machine makes a loud clunking sound when agitating. this happened after a heavy load . never was loud like that before.
