    Thanks, I found the problem. When I checked the door seal I found a small piece of gravel in the fold and other small bits of trash after cleaning and conditioning the seal it works fine.

There are only two ways that water can leak out this way. it can be either the door seal or the door lock mech has become misaligned, causing a slight gap that is letting the water escape through.

I recommend inspecting the door lock mech for its integrity. make sure it is aligned correctly to specs. replace this mechanism if found to be faulty or misaligned. i would also inspect the seal for tiny ruptures as well. the slightest rupture or hole can allow small amounts of water to excape.

Inspect these areas thouroughly.

Sounds like the door seal is shot. Try searching "amana washing machine door seal". You get YouTube hits on how to and suggested parts suppliers. Alternatively get a local technician to look at it.

Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Basket seems to be unstable and during the spend cycle it?s really loud. (Model GLTF1670ASO)


does the inner basket seem to move side to side or up and down relative to the outer tub? If so, you probably have a corroded spinner on the back of the basket. this seems to happen in reaction to certain water quality issues or detergent combinations.Most often if this is the case, my customers opt not to fix the washer unless it is in warranty

Water leaking at time the washer is being filled, not during wash cycle. Leak appears to be starting a bottom left side of the machine toward the front from the middle of the side. Observation does not...


you say water only leaks when it fills correct? am wondering if its the hose that feeds in to the washer
this would be from the inlet solenoids check the clamps in the machine.

Check the shocks on the bottom of the drum. I had the same problem and had to replace the shocks because they were broken in half.
