Question about Amana NTW4700YQ Top Load Washer NTW4700YQ

1 Answer

Unlocking your washer so it actually works.

If the lid lock button was blinking, you should press the start button so that the lid lock goes off. The lid lock button will lock once the washer has filled up. It won't wash or drain until you "UNLOCK" it and the lid is actually down. If it doesn't work after you unlock it, then you need a technician to come out and fix it.

If the green cycle light is flashing on then off, this usually means the cycle is paused. The lid lock should unlock when in pause mode, if not you will need to press and hold the "Pause/Play" button to clear the cycle completely, if there is water in the unit, it will drain first, then unlock the lid and be on standby to start a new cycle.

SOURCE: amana washer only works on delicate cycle

Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
If it does not work correctly after that,
Replace your timer.

SOURCE: how to add fabric softner to the amana washer with locking lid

Check and see if there is a cup in the top of the agitator. Some machines have you put it there, turning back and forth during wash doesn't bother it, but the spin to empty the wash water causes the softener to go out through slots in the top of the cup and be held in the agitator. when it stops the softener drains into the tub, ready for the rinse cycle.

SOURCE: amana clothes washer won't work

It could be the motor is broken, but it's more likely a blown relay. I'd visit the manufacturer's website and see if you can download a schematic or a wiring diagram for your make and model, then open it up (after unplugging it!) and you can check the connections with a voltage multimeter. (They sell them at hardware and auto-parts stores for $15-20 and they're the most useful tool for anything electronic. Every homeowner should have one.) Just put the red contact on one side of a circuit, the black one on the other, and see if you get current. Worst-case scenario, you need a whole new engine, but it seems more likely to me that the circuit board, the control knob or one of the little relays and fuses inside needs to be replaced. Your local appliance-repair shop should be able to describe the troubleshooting process in great detail and then sell you the parts, though for just a bit more they'll often come over and do it for you. (It's generally worthwhile to make friends with someone who works at such a place, so you can trade something you're good at for their help when stuff goes kablooey.)

WTW 4800XQ1 not working. Start lite goes on, fill lite goes on, then start lite goes off.


Hello. When you press the start button, you should hear the lid lock engage, then disengage after a short pause, then re-engage. If this doesn't happen, the lid lock might be defective, (the locking, unlocking, then re-locking is a self test). The motor should make some short, slow spins to determine load size. Listen for the motor--if all you hear is a "pulsing faint humming or buzzing noise", there is a part failure causing the motor to not move correctly. Because of the electronic design, you will have to call for service to determine the failure cause.

Whirlpool cabrio washer doesn't start, Can I fix this by myself?


If you replaced the lid lock then you know how to get the top of the cabinet up lift the top up there should be a technical sheet in a plastic packet on the front panel it will tell you how to run a diagnostic if not there turn machine off press and hold any button except power/cancel for 3 seconds release 3 seconds repeat until 88 appears after that any fault codes should appear I have only had to replace a control twice on these units I am curious to see if you get an F50 or F51 code this is the most common when this machine first starts the lid should lock a short rotation of the basket lid unlocks then locks a short fill then rotation of the basket let me know what you find could be the control but I would like to eliminate the rotor and RPS sensor

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.
