Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc

Hi there. I recently acquired an Admiral washing machine #WA4400882,(although searches on that number come up completely empty so it must be zillions of years old). When started, the machine fills with water, then instead of starting the wash cycle and agitating, the water drains, refills and drains, etc etc. If I set the dial to the spin cycle, it will spin and drain. We replaced the "wig wag", but that didn't help with anything. We're looking forward to any help you can give us. Thanks so much in advance.

ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.

I have a Admiral Capacity Plus washer LNC6267B71. Washer makes loud grinding noise when agitating & spin cycles. Machine does fill, drain, agitate & spin. Only noise is concern.


Hello. Your symptom describes damaged bearings and/or a damaged transmission. This is a MAJOR, INVOLVED repair requiring special tools to prevent serious injury during dis-assembly and re-assembly. I strongly suggest acquiring outside service to repair this machine if cost effective. There are many parts that have to be removed and then replaced--if you've never done this--don't attempt it. There is a brake spring with 200lbs of torque on it that has to have a special tool mounted to relieve the tension during removal and then re-compress it during replacement for example. Sorry to be so dramatic but I don't want you to get hurt needlessly. I hope I helped you!

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..

Doesn't fill all the way


the solution to the problem was....a few days before we noticed the washer was not filling all the way, the plumber had come over to clear our pipe, because it was not draining. He had tightened the clamp we were using to keep the pipe in place too tightly, it was air tight and it was creating a vacuum and siphoning the water out when it got to a certain level. We took the clamp off since there was no longer a need for it and the washer fills up and drains as it should.

Admiral Top load washer won't agitate and squeals


Sounds like the gearbox, unfortunatly this is sealed and is cheaper to replace the machine, presume the machine is quite old.
