Question about Amana Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 5yr old Amana Distinctions Super Capacity Plus top load washer, 2spd motor, 3.3 cu ft. I have taken off the front cover to expose the wash tub, because recently when the washer is in a spin cycle water is just flying out of the wash tub into the floor. This really hasn't happened before. The washer does not appear to be out of balance, but this washer does have a self balancing feature. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like a drain pump issue, not able to remove water quick enough before the centrifical force of tub spinning throws it over the top, remove the pump hoses and look for blockages

WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990


On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.
