Washer just fills up and that is it

My washer will fill up on every cycle, but then it does nothing, except on the delicate cycle, which is very strange because it will go through the complete cycle. It is not the lid switch, i have checked it out. What could this be, with it working on the delicate cycle. Please help montie

Re: washer just fills up and that is it

Sounds like a winding on the motor is burned out or the timer is defective. The motor uses a low power circuit during the delicate cycle both during wash and spin. The timer selects which winding is energized (fast or slow).

Hi, I am trying to help daughter-in-law get their

Hello annp, thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, it does sounds like a siphoning issue. Generally speaking, the drain hose should come up above the washer tub and please make sure the drain hose is not too deep in to the house drain pipe. The drain hose should only be submerged 4-8 inches into the house drain pipe. If correct, otherwise the unit might be experiencing a communication with the control board and water fill valve. At this point, please reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - please do not hesitate to reconnect.

I have an Estate Model TAWX700PQO. It will fill up, wash, and drain but will not spin. HELP need my washer daily.

Has your machine got a delicate cycle or a switch to turn it on and off? Some machine have a cycle for delicate fabrics where it will do all the wash except a spin to protect the clothes, if you have this feature make sure it is not switched on or that you are using this program for the wash.

Amana washer only works on delicate cycle

Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
If it does not work correctly after that,
Replace your timer.
