This article discusses how to troubleshoot some admiral washing machine problems

Admiral Washer Will Not Agitate

The motor coupling connects the motor to the transmission. If too much weight is placed on the washer, it could destroy the transmission, or the motor could burn out.

Fortunately, some washers have a fail-safe device called a ‘motor coupler’ that acts as protection against this scenario.

The motor coupler can also break due to normal wear and tear, so it should be inspected for cracks and/or other damage to determine if replacement is needed.

The drive motor is one of the main suspects. However, it’s seldom at fault for this symptom. Before replacing the drive, first, check all more commonly defective washer components.
If none of these components are faulty, then maybe you have a faulty drive.
To determine whether or not the drive is to blame for this symptom, first, make sure it gets power. If it hums but doesn’t run, is noisy, or doesn’t turn freely then maybe you simply need to replace your old one with a new one.

Admiral Washer Will Not Spin

The motor coupling connects the motor to the transmission. In some washers, the motor and transmission are one integrated unit.

If a washing machine is overloaded and heavy laundry items have been placed in a load that is out of balance, such as two large bath towels plus several pairs of jeans, along with two large washcloths and two hand towels plus a few other small articles all in the same load.

It could damage not only the motor but also the transmission shaft inside that connects the motor to the transmission. Inspecting both the areas will help determine if either of them needs replacing.

The clutch is used to connect the transmission to the spinning tub of your washing machine. It allows a gradual and sustained increase in the spin speed of your tub.

A worn-out clutch assembly cannot transfer the necessary energy from the transmission, effectively not allowing dishes to get clean because they are not getting spun fast enough.

Therefore, should this happen we recommend that you replace it immediately so as not to be left with dirty dishes.

Admiral Washer Will Not Drain

A washer lid switch assembly is essential for the operation of the washer. This part, located on the console above the washer tub, allows you to stop or restart a cycle using one simple switch.

If the part is faulty, it will cause issues such as The washer may not drain the water completely and towels may remain soaked after a wash cycle The washer may not start draining water

First, if the drain hose is kinked, straighten it out. If the drain hose is twisted or bent, make sure to correct this condition.

It’s also important to check that the waste is not building up and causing a blockage.

If there is no buildup, new holes should be drilled into the drainpipe on a downward angle which helps suck all of that unwanted waste out of your house and into whatever means you use to dispose of it.

Admiral Washer Will Not Start

A line fuse may blow to indicate a short circuit if the washer is overloaded. Shortened circuits cause the star-shaped plug of the fuse to melt and break resulting in a potentially dangerous situation so it must be replaced as soon as possible.

If you determine that a blown fuse was overheated, perform troubleshooting procedures such as checking wires, motors, and pumps.

If your washer won’t start, the thermal fuse might need to be replaced. To test it, use a multimeter to determine if there is continuity between the two terminals on the thermal fuse.

If there is no continuity, replace the thermal fuse. You should also inspect the area behind it for a problem with insulation or wiring.

Admiral Washer Lid Or Door Will Not Lock

Inspect the door strike assembly for damage. If it is damaged and non-functional, you must replace it with a new strike system. These are not repairable and therefore, must be replaced if they are broken or damaged.

The door latch might be difficult to open after installing a new door latch assembly. Inspect the door latch for damage. If the door has been damaged, repair or replace it.
