Admiral Washer and Dryer Won’t Fill With Water

If your washer isn't filling up, the problem is likely the power source. Make sure your machine is plugged in and that the outlet is working. Also, check your fuse box for either a broken circuit or a tripped circuit breaker.

If these things are in order but the machine still won't fill, the problem is likely with tangled or clogged inlet hoses. Untangle them, then check the hoses filter screens for any residue and clean them.

Laundry Is Coming Out Wet

The most likely reason for laundry coming out of the machine soaking wet is an uneven load dispersal. Try redistributing the load more evenly within the drum and rewash. It's also important to make sure you're using the right cycle type for your laundry.

Laundry Isn’t Being Properly Washed

The first thing to check is your wash cycle. If you aren't washing at the correct temperature and speed for the type of laundry, laundry won't be as well cleaned as it could be.

Another issue with Admiral washers is that they respond negatively to too much detergent. If you've been overzealous with your suds, run a second cycle without detergent to clean clothes off.

Admiral Washing Machine Is Leaking

If your machine is leaking water, first check whether it's coming from the drum or the hoses. If it's the drum, your washer door is no longer secure, and the seal will need replacing.

If the leak is coming from the hoses, check their connections. If any are loose, tighten with a screwdriver. If you're concerned about potential leaks, make sure to quickly remove laundry from your machine at the end of the cycle.

Admiral Washing Machine Is Making Too Much Noise

If your machine is too loud, it's likely not a problem with the unit but with its placements. Washer and dryer require a fair amount of space around them as they make slight movements during cycles. If it's too cramped, the machine will rub against the walls or other objects and make loud noises.

It's also important that your Admiral washer and dryer is on a level plane. Uneven ground can not only make your washer excessively noisy but can cause damage to the machine over time.
