Motor fault, If capacitor start then capacitor faulty. If no capacitor start winding or switch (inside motor) faulty and replacement motor needed as these are not repairable. OT keep turning drum to simulate start winding, not recommended!!

Check that the exhaust air outlet hose (if fitted) is not obstructed or crushed. If not fitted, check that the exhaust air outlet is not blocked nor too close to anything which may impede the flow of exhaust air. Also check that the air inlets are not blocked.

Basically your machine "thinks" that it has an airflow obstruction, and usually that's caused by the filters. If that's not the case then you'll have to call in a repair technician to correctly diagnose the fault. The cause is then likely to be a simple failure of a switch or sensor and a relatively cheap and fast repair, especially if your machine is under warranty.

Get a quote from a repair shop. It can cost a fortune to repair most times, you often can't get parts , they retail just short of $400.00 from ebay.

Admiral is made by Whirlpool. Your part number is W10185972. This is a factory part and I usually use Amazon for parts as then I do not have the shipping costs. $70.92

I hope this helps.
