Question about Amana NAV8805EWW 3.3 Cu. Ft. Elustra Tub Washer

Amana top loading washer-weak agitation for 1-2 minutes then fine

I suspect the timing control is getting defective. About 8 months ago we experienced this for a few days and then it disappeared until recently.

Is this a typical symptom of a timer/sequencer going bad or is this more likely another issue?

Thanks

Steve

Weak agitation ??? i would not suspect timer, i would first check your dial settings, moakin sure a knob has not been changed to gentle/gentle. instead of normal /normal.. if that is not it, i would perhaps, look into tenson of belt or a faulty brake(common if brake pads fail there is no "resistance" on hte wash.. you can check this by removing the lower acess panel and look for broken peices of brake pads, under the unit. similar to car brake pads

Loose agitator


This may not be an issue, is your agitator a two piece unit? With these, the top 1/2 turns only in one direction and the bottom 1/2 goes back and forth. These setups are somewhat loose and that is okay.
What does happen is the little dogs (ratchets, pawls, that make the top 1/2 turn one direction and not the other) get damaged and need replacement. the 4 of them run about 8 to 10 bucks. A little tricky to install, but well worth it.

The secret to long pawl life is to use MORE than enough water on each load.

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.

Smoking washer Amana NAV8800AWW


Ok, that's a different scenario. Generally, when a washer is agitating and develops an overload that stalls or overheats the motor, the problem could be caused by:
1. Too many clothes for the amount of water level selected. If clothes don't have enough water to circulate in properly, it can put excess pressure on the agitator which transfers to the gearcase, drive belt, and finally the motor. The motor is thermally protected and stops running until it cools down, then it will try to restart. In the process the drive belt could burn slightly to completely,so you may want to inspect the drive belt for burned areas.
2. Transmission malfunction, where something inside the transmission breaks due to an overload and jams a gear. End results can be the same as above.
I suspect a clothes overload may have caused the problem and once the overload is alleviated, the washer should operate normlly if the belt didn't burn,

Agitator not turning during cycle


Well, it sounds like you've done your homework. My first suspect would have been the agitator dogs too, but you said they were fine. Another likely suspect would have been the motor coupler, but you said the washer spins during the spin cycle. If the coupler was bad the unit would fill, but wouldn't agitate or spin. Plus, it would make an awful noise. I would have also suspected a clutch assembly, but you said the wash tub can spin. Normally, when the clutch goes bad, the drum won't spin, or spins slow. Another suspect could have been a bad lid switch, but the washer would have filled and stopped, without agitating or spinning. The only remaining suspect that I'm aware of is the gear case (transmission). Checking under the washer can give you some clues. Normally, when a gear case starts to go bad, they leak an amber colored oil. You may find puddles or drips under the washer. If you see no signs of oil the gear case could still be defective, however. But, before you go through all the trouble, double check the agitator one more time. Completely remove it from the tub and check the under side to ensure the grooves that grip the top of the gear case shaft have not been worn smooth. I hope this may have been some help to you.
