Question and Answers


My Admiral Designer series washer won't drain. Unit fills properly but stops working when it gets to the spin cycle.


From the description you give the problem possibly the timer but it is more likely the lid switch causing this problem.

If the washer will fill and agitate then the motor is most likely okay. If the motor doesn't run in drain or spin then the lid switch is the most likely cause of this problem.

The timer can be difficult to diagnose but the lid switch only has two wires on it. It can be checked for continuity if you have access to a volt/ohm meter and are confident using it. The image below will show you how to raise the top and remove the front panel.

Remember to unplug the washer first.

If the motor seems to be running then it is also possible the drain pump is blocked.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Yes the problem was the lid switch. More specifically the plastic piece that's connected to the lid of the washer was broken in half and therefore not activating the lid switch properly. To test that the lid switch itself wasn't broken I manually pushed the lid swich button and the washer entered its spin cycle. Therefore I've ordered a replacement part. Thanks.

Hi Fred! Thanks to this thread, I was able to diagnose a lid switch problem I have with an older model Admiral. I love this washing machine and don't want to get a new one! How does one go about repairing this? Is it a fuse thing? When I press the lid switch down with a pencil, the machine hums likes it trying to run. When I let go, it stops as it should. Any advice would be great! Thanks!
