Question about Amana LWA40A
All cycles work, but the machine won't agitate. During the agitate cycle there is a 'hum.' The fill, spin, rinse, and drain cycles all work fine - thank goodness! Any suggestions about how to troubleshoot or fix would be appreciated.
The pull at the bottom of transmission should turn both ways.. one way for spin the other way for agitate... if transmission turns both ways means not locked up and probley bad motor..

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
