The back doesn't come off - the 'shell' (top and sides) come off. Then you should be able to get to belt from the side, you'll need a lot of room to work with it.

SOURCE: belt amana washer replace mod lw6501w2

I have a similar amana top load washer and just changed the belt. Here are the steps I used to change the belt:
1) Unplug the washer
2) Slide the washer away from the wall about 12"
3) Remove two screws from the bottom of the front panel, slide the front panel down (there are 2 metal tabs that slide into slots on the top of the front panel - observe how they slide into/out of the slots). Set the panel aside.
4) Remove the electrical connector (upper left of motor). Press down on the top of the plastic connector - this will undo the catch hook holding the connection in place). Observe how the belt is routed before proceeding.
5) Remove 4 bolts holding the motor in place. You can remove the motor - even with the water pump and hoses in place - they will flex.
6) Remove the water pump from the motor. There are 3 torx - head screws to remove. Note: You will need a star shaped (torx) head driver (Looks like a screwdriver but with a "star" head on it. The one I used measured just under 3/16 in diameter.
7) carefully remove the water pump. - remove the old belt from main pulley under washer drum and also from the water pump. Insert the new belt - be sure to put the tension pulley on the outside of the belt.
8) Reinstall the water pump to the motor. Reinstall the motor. Route the belt correctly in the water pump body area first - them slide the belt around the left side of the main drum pulley - rotate the pulley counter-clockwise and the pulley will tug the belt onto the pulley. Once in place - check bolts and belt - then reattach the electrical connector (remember to press the plastic lever on top of the plastic connector before sliding it in place). Reattach front panel - slide the top of the panel onto the metal tabs - then attach screws at the bottom.

SOURCE: my front loader washer door will not open a lock

there is a chance that there is something stuck inside the drain pump.use a shop vac attach it to the end of the drain hose remove all the water.unplug the unit and plug it back in this should unlock the door. check the drain pump for foregin objects such as small nails bobby pins,drill bits anything that could stop the impellar wheel from turning.if there is nothing in it then you might have a bad drain pump.

SOURCE: amana front load washer door locked with door open

To get the front off. (All screws look to be #2 Phillips Screws)
1. You have to unscrew (2) phillips screws from the back that holds the top on.
2. Slide the top off. (slide towards the back)
3. Then where the control panel is there is about 4-6 screws holding that plastic piece on, take those out this will allow you to pull the control panel up and out of the way.
4. At this point you can unscrew the 4-6 screws in the door area that holds the front of the washer on, once you unscrew those screws there is a tab that you have to lift the front over to pull the front off. This will allow you access to the locking mechanism.
5. There are only 2 screws holding te locking mechanism on.

SOURCE: amana tandem 7300 stopped ,door is locked wash

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.

Mine was doing the same thing. The solenoid is out and is letting water push by the valve in it. The solenoid is where the hot and cold water hoses hook up on the back of the washer. The part is super cheap and is very easy to replace. There are tons of videos on youtube. I used this video. Water Inlet Valve Replacement part 8182862 Duet HE3 Washer Repair
