You need to check the water pressure hose between the tub and console for blockage. Be sure to blow it out good. If this does not clear up the problem, replace the pressure sensor. Here is the part to order.

Sounds like the water seal is damaged and the leaking water has damaged the top bearing which is just below the water seal. You will need to have the hub & seal kit replaced.

SOURCE: Washer (Amana NAV 5800) vibrates

We purchased an Amana NAV5800AWW top-loading washing Machine which ran fine for about 19 months, then it began to vibrate violently when it went into a high-speed spin. I went thru the "leveling" procedure, although it didn't need it; and when that didn't help called the appliance repair man.

The repair man tightened screws, checked that my floors were solid, and then checked the tub itself. He found that the inner (stainless steel) tub was loose, and upon closer inspection found that the stainless steel tub was severely "cracked" around around each of it's 4 mounting bolts. This was allowing the tub to move around, thereby creating an out-of-balance condition.

He indicated that the "fix" would be to replace the tub, which was still under warranty; but I would have to pay the labor for installation ($90 + tax). He suggested I might call customer service and see if they would pay the labor.

I called Whirlpool's customer service dept (Whirlpool bought out what used to be Amana). I spoke to the customer service agent and after explaining the problem suggested that since the problem was clearly either a manufacturing defect or an engineering design flaw, that the customer shouldn't have to pay anything. He (although courteous) said that the warrantly clearly stated that only the part (and not the labor) was covered, and that Whirlpool would not pay for the labor charges.

That's when I pointed out that it didn't project a very good image of a company (Whirlpool) when it would not bear the cost of fixing a problem clearly not of the customer's making. Moreover, I assured him that I would never purchase a Whirlpool product again; and that I would make certain that my experience found it's way onto the internet.

SOURCE: won't drain or spin

Sounds like the lid switch which is only about 30.00 to fix if you do it yourself. It's a little difficult but it's much better than replacing or having someone come in and do it

SOURCE: amana nav5800aww water on floor after spin cycle

Sounds very similar to having something such as a sock or small article of clothing that is too large to be sucked down the drain hose into the pump. So what happens is it hangs around between the inner and outer drums and sometimes gets itself lodged over the drum drain hole, and can allow water to be centrifically flung over the top of the drum. Most times when the spin cycle stops, the article of clothing will dislodge and float around inside the drum only to do it again later....
If you can remove the top of the machine, you can usually see the gap between the two drums and use a piece of coathanger wire with a small hook on the end and "go fishing in the area between the two drums and close to the drain hole location... bet you'll find something in there... Let me know how it goes... and if I can help .. ken

It does fill to capacity on the rinse cycle only on large or super levels.


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Flooding and overfilling


Hi

If your washer is overfilling, check these:
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.


Please accept the solution and revert for any further assistance.

Thanks

Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.


SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

Washed clothes while on the 'clean washer' setting


I'm sure that the exact make up of clean washer or tub clean cycles vary from brand to brand, but basically that cycle fills to a higher water level, hottest water, and highest spin, turning off load sensors / out of balance sensors so the machine can spin with water in the tub (allowing tub cleaning agents to contact all tub surfaces). (all other cycles pump the water out before spinning) Having a load of clothes in the machine at this time could result in overloading machine (gererally causing an error code), damage to suspension components, damage to hoses or connections resulting in water leaks, etc. Due to the large water level, your clothes would be agitated more ****, but the hot water might damage some fabrics. A FixYa rating would be appreciated for this info. Thanks.
