Question about Amana Washing Machines

Amana washer broken, won't drain and sounds like machine gun

My tenants tell me the Amana washing machine is broken and I picked up a second hand one on Craig's list but am now wondering if I should have just repaired the old one which was a better make. My tenants say the machine sounded like a machine gun and wasn't draining water. I think it wasn't rotating either. Is this an easy, cheap fix or should I just substitue the second hand Roper which seems to be a less valuable model?

Sounds like the transmission is bad. To tell the truth the roper is a way better machine. Whirlpool makes roper and they are basically the same machine so it isnt even a cheap washer. Its a great machine! Better than the amana to start with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amana NTW4700YQ Top Load Washer will not drain

Hopefully you have it under warranty. You will probably need another wire harness. Double check your outlet to make sure it is grounded properly because they will 'nit pick' and tell you it is your fault for not having a properly grounded outlet.

Looks like the gate was broken after the tenant moved out as most vandalism occurs to vacant property and a broken gate would surely have been seen by anyone entering the property. No way to win this one. They did the inspections and recorded the findings.

The lid switch is one thing to check, make sure that it is not loose or broken, IT could also be the water level sensor, they become gummed up with softner sometimes.
