IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE START CONTACT IN THE TIMER IS NOT MAKING A CONNECTION UNTIL YOU PULL OUT ON THE SHAFT OF THE TIMER. MOST TIMES IT NEEDS A NEW TIMER.

I need to remove the agitator from my washing machine.


On most Amana washers you pull on the agitator with brute force. It "snaps" on. It helps if you fill the washer with hot water and let it set for a few minutes... drain and then try pulling it out. When i last took apart my Amana it took me and a friend to pull the agitator off.

MAGIC CHEF 5 YRS OLD WONT AGITATE


Ours started doing the very same thing. I took the top off and found that a mouse had chewed a hole in the vacuum tube. I replaced it with a 3/16" ID small engine gas line hose I bought at local implement dealer. Works like a charm.

Washer wont agitate with med - large loads


Without knowing the age of your machine, your agitator "dogs" may be wearing or worn out. It should be fairly easy to check them out. You will need to figure out how to remove the agitator Usually the agitator will have a fabric softener dispenser or a cap on the top. Pull the dispenser/cap off the top of the agitator and you may see a screw holding the agitator in place. Once you lift the agitator out, the "dogs" should be visible. Most appliance stores should carry the dogs for your particular washing machine. I've added a couple of photos so you have an idea what to look for.

Black powder under the motor??? The motor uses carbon "brushes" to electrically make the motor move. Without going into motor theory, I would tell you that the black powder, in a small amount, is normal. The brushes can be replaced, and again, can be found at most major appliance dealers
