I just dealt with this problem. The machine would fill, agitate, drain, no spin unless I opened the lid and closed it. It could be the lid switch or my problem was the timer. I knew that by replacing the lid switch, which didn't change the problem. I unplugged and replugged the machine during a cycle and the machine spun. The timer needed that momentary break to switch cycles. I bought the part off ebay for 1/2 the going price. Installed in, works like a charm. Be sure to let the washer go through the whole cycle without opening the lid, to make sure it's fixed.

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.

a.- It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
a.1. If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. 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. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
a.2. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


b.- It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
b.1. The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
b.2 The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.
b.3 A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
b.4 The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
b.5 The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
b.6 The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
b.7 The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

c.- It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up

SOURCE: Admiral Washer model #LNC6757 will not agitate

Possibly a loose agitator, try lifting the agitator, if it lifts then it is un secure, remove the softener cap and down inside the agitator you will see the fixing bolt,
You will need to lift out the agitator to retrieve the bolt if it has come fully un done, refit the agitator and secure using a socket and long extension bar.

SOURCE: Admiral Washing Machine not spinning

Make sure the safety switch that the lid operates is getting pushed down. Use a popcicle stick or non metalic object to push the switch in and try to get it to spin. This switch goes bad alot. It is in a wet environment. You will normally hear or feel a click when the switch is depressed. If not, use a putty knife or butter knife to push the top retainer in that are located at the front outer corners in the gap just where the top of the machine meets the rest of the unit. While pushing in you should feel a slight resistance but it should spring in and allow the top to lift up. Make sure to unplug the unit first.... Find the switch and unplug the two wires from it and use something like a paper clip or small wire to connect the two wires together. Let the top set back down, doesn't have to snap down and try to get it to spin again. If this works then the switch is bad... There are plastic parts on some machines that push this switch when the lid is closed that get broken off without you noticing until it just doesn't work right..

SOURCE: loud noise while agitating in wash cycle

If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

I would replace the belt part # 21352320 which cost about 20 bucks. Tilt the machine back when off and empty and look for a glazed belt with maybe some cracking and wear.

Admiral washer aav7000aww-agitator only spins one direction-doesn't agitate-it stirs the laundry.


Remove the agitator, and turn the transmission pulley, one way, the spin basket will spin, the other way, the transmission spindle should go back and forth. If not, you have a bad transmission.
Here is the transmission to order if you should find it bad.

Locked up agitator,


If your agitator is a 2 piece, it has a rachet action and turns free counter clockwise and locks to the bottom piece when turning counter clockwise.
The transmission disengages the agitator when it is in the spin mode. If you put the washer in the spin cycle the agitator should free up.
If the washer is spining ok and the agitator is not turning free you have a transmission problem.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Washer spins agitates, but will not drain


Possible your outlet filter is blocked; find out where it is from your manual, clean it out and re-fit. Also try the spin only function to see if it drains.
