Question about Amana Clothes Washer / Washing Machine Water Valve R0131578

1 Answer

I need a detailed diagram for my Amana Washer model #ALW540RAW

I am having problems with my washer. I did a load of laundry and went to put it in dryer. My garage was flooded. For some reason, when filling the tub, it doesn't shut off where it should.( small load, med, or large). It keeps running. I have found some answers on FixYa. It could a couple of things. I need a diagram to show me where the lid switch is , and where the "tube" is at the outer tub.

The pressure switch sends the signal that tub is full and agitation should begin. As a rule though pressure switches are long lasting parts. Usually the problem is in the tube that goes from the switch to a bulb or box on the side of the outer drum. The hose can become disconnected, for example if machine was recently moved, or even a severely unbalanced load. Sometimes a tiny piece of lint can obstruct the hose from the bulb end.

SOURCE: AMANA WASHER WILL LEAKS WATER IN TUB AFTER SPIN CYCLE.

Cylon, sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. It's not seating and weeping water. For series 10 the part number would be 40097701. Not that hard of a job. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: washer only fills. then completly dead.(timer still advance)

is there any humming coming from under or front of your washer? whirlpool built machines for about 10 years now are "direct drive" ...the motor has a plastic coupling held in place by a rubberish plastic donut type of thing, its an inexpensive fix and there are videos on youtube on how its repaired..its under 10 bucks and usually cures any lack of agitation/ spinning ...i had a roper by whirlpool and once i replaced it from a parts machine i salvaged it was fine.. so check you motor coupler/ coupling and that maybe your answer, if not there is a set of wires and a cut off in back of the motor to prevent overheating, which may have tripped..also a good point to check.. good luck

Tip

How to receive the best washing machine repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your washer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.


1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of washers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your washer.

Descriptions like 'My washer don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the washer not filling with water? Maybe the washer is full of water but it will not pump the water out?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The washer will not pump the water out' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"My washer filled up with water and started agitating. When I went to take the laundry out of the washer the timer had advance to the end of the cycle, but the washer was still full of water. I advance the timer around to the drain cycle again to try and drain the water out of the washer, but all the washer does is make a humming sound."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your washer repair question.

I have Kenmore ELite HE5t Model 110. I keep getting an "F35" code and washer does nothing....even pushing the "Stop" button doesn't work..door will not unlock...I have to turn off breaker to open door.


Hi, we also got the SUDS error followed by F35 many times. I replaced the analog water level switch, Wirlpool part number W10156252, and the problem went away. The part is located against the back right corner of the top of the washer after removing the top cover. The part cost $62.99 + $12.95 express shipping from ApplianceZone.net. I have the Kenmore HE3t Steam Washer, model number 110.46752 700 front loader. I was able to run about 6 loads of laundry by unplugging the washer, waiting about 5 minutes, the re-plugging and re-starting the washer. Thereafter, the problem became permanent. I always used HE detergent. The washer was purchased new in December 2007, and the I made the repair in September 2009. I spent about $1300 for the Kenmore H3t Steam Washer, and I am disappointed that it required repair after less than 2 years. My mothers old Maytag washer lasted more than 15 years, and was not susceptible to soap SUDS.

NFW7200TW washer won't engage spin cycle


We had the same problem with the same model machine and solved it.

Our machine was a month old and started getting stuck at minute 8, so we arranged service calls through Amana customer service. Long story short, the first three service reps couldn't figure out the problem. Two of them called Amana's in-house tech support line and the Amana techs didn't know what the problem was. The fourth repairman was smarter than his predecessors. He called the Amana in-house tech line, spoke to a rep who didn't know what was wrong, and then called in again. He explained that. based on his experience, some in-house techs knew more than others. That turned out to be the case because on his next call-in to Amana, that rep knew exactly what the problem was and recommended replacing the main computer board module. The repair guy ordered and installed the part. The machine has been working perfectly for a month.

My maytag washer has a burning smell.


What model do you have.?It doesn't sound like it was spinning.A frozen pump would make the belt burn and it would leave some water in the tub .
