Question about Amana NFW7300WW Washer

Open Question

Trying to fix an Amana Tandem 7300 front load washer. It will not operate once it gets to the Rinse and Spin cycle. Motor hums but does not turn the drum. Belt does not need to be replaced. How do I test the motor to determine if it is the problem? Found 2 white plastic pieces that looks like they have broken off and were laying inside after I removed the back cover, as well as a broke bolt at the threads approx. 4 to 5 inches long and fits into the hole that runs thru the broken plastic.

SOURCE: Motor does not turn in wash or rinse mode. works

Hi, well NO it's not the motor and there are no diodes inside the motor, thats not actually the way they in which they are made to rotate and reverse direction.
This is done by "Driving" the motor with a pulse width modulated signal, that makes the motor spin,as the electricity is switched from pole to pole the motor's stator is attracted to that pole and moves forwards or backwards depending on the direction of the waveform.
So whenever a motor isn't working, spinning, then most often if the motor works, as it actually appears your is OK, then the "Controller' is at fault. The controller in this case is the Main Controller Board. This must be replaced in it's entirety. If you wish to DIY, then please find below a service and repair manual, to use to try and track down exactly whats wrong...

But you see these days, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center,Anma in your case, please contact a local or head office and ask for a referral to an Authorised service center. I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. You see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option.

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?"

SOURCE: My washer (ALW880QAW) agitates but does not spin.

That is the drive coupler and it has worn out. You can order a replacement set that comes with two plastic retaining pieces that slide onto both your transmission and engine and also a rubber piece that goes in between these two plastic pieces. You can search many places to find out how to replace this part. I just ordered a set and shopped around a bit and mine was $20 after shipping.

SOURCE: Amana front load washer hums only

A centrifugal switch to allow the motor to start up on the start winding and once started it opens to take it out of the start winding. The motor has to have voltage applied to the start winding and the run winding at the same time in order for the motor to start. The capacitor is part of the start circuit. When the motor goes to start, the voltage must be applied to the start winding in order for the motor to start or it will just hum. The moment the motor reaches a certain RPM the centrifugal switch opens up to remove the start voltage to the motor and it will remain running on the run winding. The motor will not start up on run voltage alone. It needs both, the start voltage and run voltage.

I think the problem is that the motor is not getting the start voltage supplied to the motor or the start winding has opened up in the motor.

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.

Water runs out of soap box during rinse cycle


Hi there, given this a lot of thought. I had same problem. Could be that you are in a hard water area. Soap is not dissolving properly and building up in the rubber tube between soap box and drum. How I resolved this. Turn off power remove top cover of washing machine and massage the rubber pipe between soap box and drum to soften and cause undissolved saoa to drop into drum. This should rectify problem. Also consider using every month some descaler powder called Descaler cheapest from Axxxxn best wishes.

I HAVE AN AMANA TANDEM 7300 IT STARTS THEN STOPS AND BEGINS BEEPING DOOR WONT UNLOCK TO GET MY CLOTHES OUT WHAT DO I DO???


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Amana tandem 7300 stopped ,door is locked wash light is beeping


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.
