Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I am working on a Amana Tandem 7300. It stops working when it gets to the spin cycle. Hear motor humming but it won't spin. Took back cover off and found 2 pieces of white plastic broke and laying in the bottom and a broken bolt approx 5 in long sheared at the thread line. Seems like motor is getting juice but refuses to operate. Cannot locate where broken plastic and bolt came from. How do I check the motor to see if that might be the problem? The belt is in place and is ok. Can u email me elect. schematic or offer me another solution to locate and fix the promenade. Have meter n know how to use it. Thank you.

here is a link which shows the exploded diagram for your washer - perhaps you can identify the part; and here is the parts list; at the top you can order parts direct from bosch. Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; If you have no luck with this then; Best thing you can do is to take a picture of the part and where you think it came from, and either post it again here or e-mail it to your nearest bosch dealer (page 26 of the manual has a phone number). Hope this helps :) ps - if you do contact them, please tell Bosch how good the access to their product literature is - if all manufacturers did this our landfill sites would be half as full - they deserve some praise :)

SOURCE: Amana NAV2330 Wont Agitate or Spin

i would assume that perhaps you did not wind hte belt correctly arround the legs of the pump and therefore are not putting the correct tension on hte pulley(remember to hook spring back up to tension idler?)

SOURCE: Replaced broken washer belt, but drum still won't spin.

you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for your input. I'll look into it. If the problem is a bearing, is it an easy fix or should I start saving for a new washer?"

Door won't unlock
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.

I have a Amana tandem 7300 front loader washing machine. It's stopped working nothing's happening except the display lights. Stopped in the middle of the wash cycle is there a reset button? Offbalanc

The only reset is to unplug the machine from power for about 5 min's and if that fails you may need to replace the washer timer control board.

Amana tandem 7300 washer hums but won't spin. Stopped with clothes and water in it.

If you would drain the water out with a hose (siphon it out) and remove the wet clothes, then look underneath the machine and see if you have a drive fan-belt, you may find it broken or slipping.
A very few machines have a drive shaft with a coupling instead.
God bless your efforts.

Why is my Amanda 7300 tandem washing machine not doing the wash cycle? It stops after water has filled and stats to beep 3 times in intervals....

Sometimes this can happen when the power button does not return completely when pressed in. My cheap & cheerful solution was to use a bit of Blu-Tak on the button, so I could pull it all the way out.

The motor sounds like it is overloading and kicking out. Most likely cause: binding brake pads.
