Question about Amana Front Load Washing Machine Washer Soap Dispenser Nfw7200tw
Our washer will not advance from the wash cycle to the rinse cycle. Here is what I have done to this point: Removed the pump and hoses to check for blockages. There are not any. When the washer stopped between the wash and rinse cycle I removed the electrical connection from the pump and plugged it into the wall, the pump emptied the tub and the washer advanced to the rinse cycle. Any thoughts on what would cause this. I am an electrician but I cannot find an electrical schematic anywhere on the washer.
It sounds like, when the dial gets to the pump stage, the contact expected to pump the water out isn't making contact. That could be a burnt contact within the controller, or a loose wire to to the pump from that section of the controller. Once the weight, or water level was low enough from your pumping it out, the sensor that checks the level/pressure allowed the spin. The problem could be on the control board too.
Here's an incomplete schematic I found:

Ann, these Amana's are the mother of all washers to change out the seal and bearings. It's possible you just have a lot of gunk built up on the inside of the basket from years of washing. I would not put a cent into it. You are better off getting a new direct drive washer. Catriver...post back.

Cylon, sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. It's not seating and weeping water. For series 10 the part number would be 40097701. Not that hard of a job. Catriver..post back.

Sounds like the water seal is damaged and the leaking water has damaged the top bearing which is just below the water seal. You will need to have the hub & seal kit replaced.
