No spin, or lite spin try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Sometimes a no spin machine can be due to a plugged waterpump hose or obstructed water pump propeller. Check these by eye and hand.

SOURCE: AMANA WASHER WON'T SPIN. HOW DO I REPLACE THE BELT?

is this a whirlpool built amana? if so, its most likely a direct drive model, and when it doesn`t spin its likely a coupling between the gearcase and motor assembly...youtube has videos on how its replaced, which isn`t too complicated to do...good luck

The transmission is burned out. The same exact problem just occurred with my Amana Distinctions. Whirlpool will pay for this repair 'by concession'. Call the 800 number inside the lid and explain your problem, the operator should offer a free diagnostic visit and the repairman should offer free repair.

Hello! The belt broke on our Amana Mod.# DLW330RAW . Could you explain how to install the new belt? Thanks Ron


Remove the bottom kick plate.
Remove 4 big bolts and unplug the motor. Move the motor assembly to a work bench. You need a T-20 torx driver to remove the pump screws and remember the rear pump leg goes between the belt. I have your Amana washer repair manual HERE
