Admiral (Whirlpool) LNC 8750 a71 gas dryer - skips? intermittent motor?

12 November 2011 - 06:36 PM

I have an Admiral gas dryer, model LNC 8750 A71 that I've been keeping alive with the help of all you fine folks. Lately, the motor has started cutting out briefly. hummmmmmmmmmmmm skip hummmmmmmmmmm skip (give a listen to the file attached)

This sounds suspiciously like something slowly dying - and I'm a big believer in fixing slowly dying things before they blow out and take other more expensive parts with them.

The clothes are getting dry and the dryer's still heating. The skip time is a fraction of a second between several seconds of normal hum and the time interval sounds close to consistent to me. But don't take my word for it - you can hear for yourself.

Any guesses?

How to get to an Admiral washer belt

29 August 2009 - 11:01 AM

I think the replacement of Admiral washer LNC6750A71 belt is looming.   Because the belt is located under the chassis of the washer, how do I access it?

Do I

a) Flip it on its back like a turtle and risk damaging the pipe intakes?

B) Flip it on its side like a cow and risk damaging any hanging things I'm not aware of, like the motor?

c) Lift all four corners with blocks and slide under it like a car?  (And risk dropping a washing machine on my head like I was the Wicked Witch of the East?)

d) None of the above

Admiral LNC6750A71 spin problem troubleshooting

27 August 2009 - 12:24 PM

I've managed to remove the agitator and inner drum of my Admiral top-loading washing machine, model LNC6750A71.  

Please check out the photo.  I have the following questions:

1) Do I need to remove the outer drum to get to the transmission and clutch?   If so, what tool do I need?  My socket wrench doesn't fit under the big metal ring (the mount for the inner drum?), and my wrench doesn't fit between the fins to the left and right of the nuts.

2) Am I on the right track to hunt down what's causing my washing machine to spin poorly / slowly?

3) The transmission/clutch for this model is all one piece.  It's all one $300 piece.   Have I entered the land of the "may as well get a new washer"?

Admiral top-load washer LNC 6750 lazy spin

27 August 2009 - 06:58 AM

Hello again,

After the stellar help I received replacing the rollers on my dryer, I've returned with a much bigger challenge - correcting the lazy / slow spin on my washing machine.

It's an Admiral Designer Series, model LNC 6750.   The model number is also called 85-06750-071-000.  The spin cycle is definitely still running, but not with enough strength to get the water out of the clothes, and the problem is worse the heavier the load.

I've seen a number of other posts about similar problems on similar machines, but I'm posting for help because:
a) After an hour of hunting, I'm still confused
B) All the posts I've found so far have included words I don't understand, and start *after* the machine has been moved and disassembled.

Please post help and/or links to the previous posts I missed that will show me:

1) How to take the machine apart to get to the stuff that's busted.

2) What in the world I'm looking for and looking at...the smaller the words used, the better.

I shall wait patiently for the pearls of wisdom to shower down upon me once more. 

Admiral LNC8750A71 roller removal

23 January 2008 - 10:05 AM

I have an Admiral Designer Series gas dryer (model LNC8750A71) with an irregular and intermittent squeak that's been growing in intensity and frequency.  It is to the point now where the entire household tenses for the loud SNAP of something becoming seriously damaged whenever the dryer runs.

I removed the drum and the left roller is definitely rolling in a far less smooth way than the right roller, though they both look fine.   Here's what I need to know:

1)  What is the thing holding the roller on that looks like a little 2-D blast helmet for the bolt (photo) and how do I get it off?

2)  Is there anything tricky like loose ball bearings lurking behind the roller ready to spring/fall/self-destruct once I get the thing in #1 off?  Or any other weird things to expect after I get the roller off that will send me crawling back to the forum?

3)  If I do have to replace the roller, should I replace them both for symmetry's sake, or just the crummy one?

Speak slowly and use small words, O Samurai, for I am venturing into my first major appliance repair.
