Admiral Washing Machine

If you are having problems with your Admiral washing machine - sometimes running the self test mode can act like a factory reset and clear the errors from your machine. The procedures to enter the self test and diagnostic modes are exactly the same as Amana branded machines.

Self Test Mode

  1. Make sure the washing machine is plugged into the mains (all of the lights on the machine should be off).
    • If any of the lights are turned on, spin the dial 360degrees counter clockwise and set the dial to face the Regular/Normal Mode at the top of the dial.
  2. Then turn the dial counterclockwise one click, then clockwise three clicks, counterclockwise one click, then clockwise one click.
  3. The cycle status lights should light up - you are now in diagnostic / troubleshooting mode.
  4. Go clockwise two clicks - the final spin light should now be lit.
  5. Press the start button and now the machine will run it's self test mode.
