Question about Amana NAV5800A Top Load Washer
My top loader is an Amana LW2503W model but is a top loader and should work about the same. My question; is this a belt problem or do I have a machine that has a motor with a hi/lo switch on it. Previously when it was working correctly it was as if the motor speeded after most of the water was spun out and the spin cycle was about twice as fast as it was at initial start up of the spin cycle. It currently spins slow the entire cycle and leaves the clothes with far too much water in them. To get the water out of the clothes I currently have to run the clothes through the final spin cycle twice before they are dry enough to put in the Dryer.
Red Ryder, the motor is 1 speed on this model. A couple of things to check; one would be the belt. Look for shavings, cracks or if it's shiney, could be worn. If your p number is p1118410ww, looks like you have 2 belts, agitate and spin and pump. Pump-R0606507, spin-R0606539. Check the pulley, make sure it is not binding, lube it up, and check the pump, something might be binding there. As long as you don't have a grinding, howling noise during spin the bearing should be good. Catriver..post back.
