Question about Amana 3.2 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer

1 Answer

Transmission refill capacity

Well sorry, I should have bought an Amana but I bought a GE (pre 1995) I have replaced the lower tranny seal (it was leaking oil) and drained the tranny and now need to refil the tranny, part no WH38X53, but I can't find the refill volume. It was about 1/2 full when I replaced the seal and drained it, and quite a bit had leaked out. I want to put in the correct volume and not overfill. Please help a future Amana customer!

SOURCE: amana dlw330ra, loud and leaking

it sounds like you have a worn out seal under your washer. pull the washer out a bit and tilt it backwards. or put something under the feet so you can look under it. turn the machine on look while it is running and see if you can tell where the leak is... there are many hoses under the machine that can give out over time and start to leak. also there is a seal in the bottom of the washer that will wear out and leak over time due to ear and tear.

also if you do not see any water coming from the bottom of the machine pull it out and see if your hoses on the back of the machine are leaking where it hooks up to your water. there are seals inside the hoses that connect from your house to the washer. if those are weak the machine will leak from there... if that is the case than you just need to replace the hoses. they now have steel wrapped hoses that are very good.

You said, You just found out my machine is leaking underneath somewhere and you haven't taken it apart yet. Any suggestions or ideas?

It usually is a leak in or around the drain hose.

SOURCE: I have an Amana 2002 top loader washer model AlW880QAW.

take the front panel off. some of them have 2 screws at the bottom left and right side. Some of them you need to take a putty kinife and run across the lid and the front panel and find the clips there are two. push in and lift the lid. then remove I believe it's a 5/16 bolt to remove the front panel. You will then be able to see where the leak is comeing from. It could be just as simple as a hose or pump. But if it is leaking where the transmission meets the tub then that will be major surgury for someone who has never done that before. Does it sound really loud while it is spinning like a train is in your house? please let me know what you find and if you need any other help

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes

The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

Transmission fluid coming from the front of my trans

If its dripping from the Torque converter cover it probably needs a new front seal on the transmission. Gotta pull the tranny to replace the seal. Just make sure its not coming from above like where the tranny lines go into the transmission. sometimes a leak above will settle and drip at the lowest point.

The process of replacing front seal in automatic transmission in an 89 ford bronco II 4x4

You will need to remove the transmission. Disconnect the battery. Remove the starter. You may have to remove or drop the exhaust from the exhaust manifolds to clear the tranny . Remove the front and rear drive lines. disconnect the transmission fluid lines at the transmission. Remove the lower inspection cover that will expose the torque converter and the flex plate or flywheel. Rotate the converter and remove the bolts that secure it to the flex plate. Disconnect the linkage to the transmission and the transfer case and pull it up and out of the way. Remove the rear transmission mount and bolts and crossbrace the mount is secured too. Be sure to support the the transmission before removing the transmission mount. Place a transmission jack under the transmission and secure it to the jack with a chain or nylon ratchet strap. remove the remaining bell housing bolts and pull back on the tranny gently and you will need to lower it as you roll it back to clear the input shaft. Be sure to not let the converter fall out the front as you lower the tranny. When you have it clear from the vehicle you can remove the converter. Then you can use a seal remover or a flat bladed screwdriver to pierce the edge of the seal and gently remove the old seal. Install the new seal and install in the reverse order you removed everything. You might want to drain the torque converter before you lower the tranny.(YOU WILL SEE A PLUG ON THE CONVERTER THAT YOU CAN REMOVE TO DRAIN IT) It will make it much lighter to manipulate. Also when you place the converter back onto the input shaft be sure to seat the converter. It will slide on then you must rotate the converter to to get it to line up with the front pump coupler and it will seat the rest of the way. If you do not do this you will ruin the front pump when you start the vehicle. And be sure to refill the tranny when you start it again. You will loose around 5 quarts when you drain theconverter. This is a simple process for an experienced person, but not for a beginner. If you need help ask. Don't do what you don't know how to accomplish. You have your personal safety to consider here. You will need quite a few tools also. Good luck. I hope this helps give you some type of guidance.

Won't shift out of 1st gear. Is there a tranny filter are do I have major problems?

there is a filter inside the transmission, you will need to remove the lower transmission oil pan in order to get access the filter if you find any metal shavings in the oil pan the you probably have a major problem but if no shavings then try a new filter and fluid and put a qt. of transX in when you refill the transmission.

good luck

Transmission lost fluid on the highway

What has probably happened is you have busted a tranny cooler line or transmission seal.
The reason your fluid is brownish black is due to running it with all the fluid coming out
and thus taking the life force out of the tranny, the black tint you are seeing is flakes
of your clutch packs inside the transmission that have worn prematuraly due to lack
of lubrication.Long story short, when you fix the leak, more than likely your tranny
will slip and warrant a rebuild or replacement. sorry to be the bearer of bad news but i
hope this helps.

Sticky manual transmission

There are 2 plugs on the tranny. Lower drain plug, and upper fill plug. Fluid is inserted thru the upper plug (after taking it out) until it starts coming out.
