Question about Amana 3.2 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer
The armature has fallen out of place. Don't know if a snap ring or bearing has shifted. Can anything be done to save the motor?Unit is only 3 years old.Parts store says it was made by Maytag.
The motor is not made to be disassembled so the only fix is to replace the motor. I have removed the eletrical switch on top of the motor and extended the activating arm with epoxy so that it would reach the centrifugal switch. This allows the motor to start properly.
