You're not done yet. The washer pump probably is leaking. Lots of basements being pumped out in this area as a result of the snow.

Bad water pump on my washing machine

Is this a top loader? If so, these instructions should work for you since this is a Whirpool manufactured washer:

Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at or Both sites offer excellent illustrations and competitive prices, so shop both for the best price. The pump is listed under the heading for the Pump/Motor/Gearcase. Just use the model number off your washer for your search criteria.

This is a fairly simple repair, but if you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS If my instructions aren't accurate, or if this is not a top loader, please post back with your model number so that I may be able to determine how your washer is contructed.

is this a whirlpool built amana? if so, its most likely a direct drive model, and when it doesn`t spin its likely a coupling between the gearcase and motor has videos on how its replaced, which isn`t too complicated to do...good luck

How do you diagnose a bad washer pump vs a cloged line?

Amana ALW480DAW seems to be not completely draining. When I start a new load water in basket becomes dingy and smells. Washer smells when it has not been used for a couple of days. We have checked the outflow and inflow drain tubes found no problems. It seems to spin and agitate normally, it drains to a point and leaves water in it, not visible in the basket. When we blow on the outflow tube when it is done draining there is still water present, we can hear it bubble.
