Question about Amana ALW880WH Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have an Amana 2002 top loader washer model AlW880QAW.

It starts leaking and getting worst everyday. It leaks more when spinning than agitating. I'd like to know what was wrong and how to fix it. Thanks a million. --Matthew the washer starting leaking when the machine is spinning out. It was a small amount but as times goes by it leaks more and more but only when spinning out. Help is this simply a seal?

    Yes it is very loud when it spins out, it never used to be as loud as it is now. My husband took it apart and it is not a hose. It seems like it may be a gasket seal or something but from my understanding that it is not an easy fix. Many have suggested getting a new washer. This machine is only 6 years old and it seems like it should have lasted longer.

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

The agitator itself is stripped or loose is one possibility. Take agitator off to see if it is damaged.

Amana ALW880QAW doesn't spin and agitation is slow


winephan,
I could be the pump slowly ceazing causing the belt to slip which would give a burning smell.
Motors in those units, are well build...have a service guy in but DON"t say anything about the motor.. because they will say it because you mentioned it
I sounds like you pump

Washing machine will not agitate but it spins.


The brakes are shot,so the tub spins in agitate will also cause it to leak part number R0000014 run about $25.
Look straight up from the bottom pulley you will see the brake assy looks kinda like a clutch plate,look around the outer edge of that you'll see the Pads they have two 3/8 inch bolts in each one,to get the new ones in you'll have to use a screw driver to open the plate.

Water leak under the rotating drum


Have you removed the front panel?

If not remove front panel two screws 5/16 on bottom

Start the washer in a cycle. look with a flash lite and look for leak.

It maybe the rubber boot.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I will also need model number, because a AWS52NW is a top loader model number not a front loader.
