If it's a front loader, check the bearing, they wear out.

SOURCE: washing machine belt replacement

The repair sounds worse than it is.

2 hose clamps
4 big bolts
3 torx screws
a little wiggling and viola!

hints: take a good look (or digital pix) of the belt before you remove the pump, keep a few large towels around to handle the water in the hoses and to cover the front edge of the machaine to make it more comfortable when you're removing and installing the motor, the connector has a latch you have to press while removing the cable, the mounts for the motor frame/pump assy. need to be sprung out a bit when reinstalling.

Comment: the shaft from the motor is "double-D" shaped and slips into a plastic fitting in the middle of the pump. I don't see how you can break the pump unless you drop the motor assy on it...

Kudos to "sir fixalot" for giving me the courage to rip in to it...

SOURCE: install belt on Amana top load washing machine

Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

Amana washer doesn't spin consistently.I have replaced belt and timer. Starts spin cycle and runs for about 6 to 10 seconds and shuts off.


Could be that the pump is binding which will eat belts up pretty quick, feel the belt and make sure it is not slipping and that it isn't all greasy and grimmy

Amana Washer LWA50AW doesn't spin


Ifi t does not spin it may be the timer. Try it in the delicate cycle to see what happens. Actually try all teh cycles to see if it spins in one of them. IF so it most likely is the time and is a 15minute job to replace.

Amana dlw330 washer belt urned & broke again


Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps

Does not spin out all the water


Sorry RickAZ, I have just joined the fixya family. I'm trying to get old unsolved problems off the list, so I'm just posting a fix. Congratulations on your replacement washer.

Kicks out?


the smaller belt is causing the tub to spin too quickly. the shorter belt is causing the motor to overheat and causing the thermal overload protector to shut dowqn the motor. when the motor cools it starts up again. replace the belt with te correct size and that will solve your problems
