Question about Amana NAV5800A Top Load Washer
I tried the uneven load correction with no results. I then did the self leveling method according to manual with no results and after putting my own level on machine and found if to be perfectly level With the washer empty I put the machine on the spin cycle and again it vibrated real bad and began to walk with the rear left leg moving to the left. Opened panel at the front bottom of washer in an attempt to look for oil, rust and any loose or broken springs. Everything looked normal. This machine was purchased in May 2005 and only used for six months of the year for two adults. Called repair man and he had no answer and only to tell me it might be the transmission. He left with my check for a forty dollar service charge. Help!!!
I don't know what kind of washer you have (make, front loader, top loader, etc) but it sounds like your basket is definately out of balance. I have replaced bearings on a front loader Frigidare, but I have heard of some of them having broken arms on the inner basket. Something like that would definately cause a condition like you describe. Bearings usually give plenty of warning due to noisy operation.
My washer has no "transmission" , just a motor and drive pulley and a belt.
What kind of washer is it? Also, I know you said the washer was level, but are all four feet solid on the ground? Sometimes a washer can be level, but still rock on its feet if one of the feet is short.
