Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer
Normally yes. There are around 12 to 20 gallons of water in the tub after the wash cycle, which will be anywhere from 63 to 110 pounds of weight in addition to the weight of the clothes. For the machine to start the spin cycle to remove this water would place a heavy load on the motor, gearcase, pullys, belts, gears, ect. With the water drained, the load is lighter, and much easier to start spinning the excess water out of the clothes. The normal cycles are: Fill, Agitate, Drain, Spin, Rinse Fill, Agitate for rinse, Drain, Spin Cycle and off. Imagine trying to spin a 5 gallon bucket of water over your head, full of water, and then empty. Which one do you think would be easier to do? And safer for you.

YES, the door. I read up all I could and told my service tech I thought it was the door. The tech mechanic initially said it couldn't be the door since all the other cycles funtioned normally. After changing both the computer on the panel and inside, he finally realized it was the door.
Once again, if your washer does everything but spin, it is a door lock problem. Note: The door does lock, but does not send the correct signal allowing the washer to spin!!
