Amana washing machine grease inside

I think my motor is blown and should trash my washer. I have grease on the inside of my washing machine. What could that mean.? I did a load of wash and noticed a little bit of black in the bottom, I put old towels in did another load and the black stuff was much more and it was like spider web all over the inside, when I touched it it felt like grease.

Re: Amana washing machine grease inside

What you are describing appears to be a transmission leak. Some of these machines have a 5 or 10 year warranty on the transmission your machine's use and care manual should tell you if yours is covered, it is usually on the last page of the manual.

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes

The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

Amana washing machine banging

Since this is a brand new washer I would recommend that you MUST get free warranty support before you even try to do a do it yourself job.
Please Call up support, possible that the suspension or the dampers or the bearing/motor support has failed and if so you must get free replacement.

Amana ALW880QAW doesn't spin and agitation is slow

I could be the pump slowly ceazing causing the belt to slip which would give a burning smell.
Motors in those units, are well build...have a service guy in but DON"t say anything about the motor.. because they will say it because you mentioned it
I sounds like you pump

My washer keeps leaking grease onto my clothes!

the problem that you have is the bearings have badly worn,a lot of companys will just replace the entire drum rather than mess about with the bearings as this does not always solve the problem.sorry to give this bad news.

Amana top load washing machine will not stop cycling through or shut of. Just keeps going through all the cycles.

Try this for you timer.
That is if you are handy and can open the washer to work on it.

Just carefully clean all the contacts and put contact grease on them.

Water wont stop

With these symptoms, there is only one culprit, the inlet valve is stuck or there is trash inside the valve body holding the seals open. You have removed all other possible culprits by unplugging the machine.
You have two options:

1) Replace the inlet valve.
2) Sometimes you can take the valve apart carefully and clean it out and put it back together and it will solve the problem.

The valve is not hard to take apart, you just have to observe and remember where everything goes.
