My amana washer barely spins but makes a jackhammer sound in spin cycle


The "jackhammer" sound is that the load (and hence, the "basket" it's in) is out of balance, causing the basket to spin in an eliptical motion.
Some washer (like mine) will momentarily shut off when it senses this, and restart when the basket slows down enough to make the out of balance condition go away, unless it starts in again, then it'll shut down again and restart.
If this is what is happening, the washer keeps shutting off and restarting, making it appear that the basket is spinning slowly, as it never gets up to full speed.
Try redistributing the load when this happens.
Also, the usually is a spring arm with a rubber "snubber" on the end that presses against the top of the basket, to help dampen an out of balance condition.
The spring over time weakens, and the dampening action is lessened.

If the washer is shaking and actually going out of balance and generating the UL error and the drum is empty the most likely cause of this problem is something under the spin basket.Clothes can end up under the spin basket and cause it to turn crocked and cause the out of balance. First I'd recommend removing the spin basket and check under it for any clothing or other obstruction that might cause the out of balance. Here is a diagram of how to Check.. Click Here

When I hand turn the drum I still hear water behind the drum please help


You most likely are not hearing water remaining in the tub. You are hearing the water slosh around in the balance ring that is attached to the spin basket. There is a balance ring attached to the spin basket that is half filled with water. When the basket is turned by hand you will hear the water in the balance ring. This is normal.

Basket is off balance. Basket is tilted (not


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Hi i have a vfr 750 1997 it has a clunking noise but when you pull the clutch in it stops ive been told its the clutch basket or the carbs want balancing is this serious?


Carbs out of balance will cause the clutch to judder, but clutch basket wear is common and is the remedy if you dont get rid after carb balance. most just live with it! unless it is really noisey

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer wont balance


Your basket drive is grabbing. the only way to stop that is to locate the clutch and the tube directly above it is your basket drive put a little white lithium up there. but not in the clutch. this will solve that problem. But if you do not know what you are looking for this will be difficult to locate.
