Question about Amana NAV8805EWW 3.3 Cu. Ft. Elustra Tub Washer

2 Answers

Model LW6501W2 The washer has been stored in my garage for 2 years. I took it outside and filled it with water. Everything worked perfectly.It would spin and agitate. My wife washed a load and then it never went into the rinse cycle. There is power to the outlet, but it sits there silently. We turned the reset knob, but nothing happened.

    This comment is to be added to the problem posted by Pruney.  The washer filled and agitated, but would not drain the water or spin.  The timer hummed for a moment at the drain part of the cycle then went silent, as if no power were getting to the washer.  Tested the outlet and it is good.

    I opened the machine and manually turned the water pump and the tub. They both turned freely. I found a switch on the back beneath the timer section. I clicked it a couple of times, then had my wife try a small load. It worked and continues to work. We have no manual so I'm wondering if she interfered with the cycles somehow that caused it not to spin. I also don't know what that switch was for. Thanks Wagdom you got me started and they say sometimes even a blind hog(that's me )finds an acorn.

Sounds like the outlet pump has siezed up due to having been stood for so long. You may need to take the pump apart, clean the shaft & reassemble. Or, you could try a spray with WD 40 on the pump. TURN POWER OFF FIRST

Turn off the water to the washer, unscrew the hoses ( do one completely before moving to the other)Once you unscrew the first hose you will see a small filter screen inside the opening on the washer,Remove the screen and clean it, replace it and reattach the hose,Now go to the other hose and do the same thing, once both are done and hooked back up, turn the waterback on and everything should work as normal.

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

to reset the water level you have to turn the knob all the way over as far as it will go and then come back to large load.

Water runnning out from bottom of washing machine


Barbarahaps,
I had a similiar problem with a Brand X washer. the problem may be your water pump. if so, it is an easy fix for someone who is mechanically inclined. you first must see where the water is leaking from. when i did this, i securly placed my washer on cinder blocks so that i could see underneath it, and let it fill with a little bit of water, then i could clearly see the water leaking out of the water pump. the key concern here is safety, make sure that the machine fills with only a little bit of water, and then cut the power off to the machine to ensure it doesn't start going through its cycle while up on the blocks, creating a potential hazard. If it is the waterpump, find a washer repair store, tell them the year and model machine you have, and get a water pump on order. the water pump is a pretty straight foward repair--you disconnect power from the machine, turn off and disconnect the water supply, disconnect the drain pipe, and tip over the washer to expose its under side. you disconnect the hoses going to the water pump, remove the attaching bolts, and install the new pump. then you hook everything back up and you should be good to go. hope this helps.
