Question about Amana Washing Machines

1 Answer

Forgot to remove shippping bolts before using machine.

My husband did not read the directions for installing an Amana front load washing machine. I feel damage may have been done because the shipping bolts were not taken out and the washer was used three times already. Is it ruined? Sales person told me it was and that I would need to get a new one. Help me.

I would take out the shipping bolts and then run a prgram such as Spin.with no clothes in

If that sounds ok, wet a few towels and spin them dry

If that works put a full load in and go for it

Unless your machine was way out of balance you should not really have damaged anything.

The transit bolts are there to stop the drum from banging around during transit and unless they have torn free or have bent you should be ok

Install belt on Amana top load washing machine


Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

Brand new front Load GE washing machine stop at rinse cycle


Check that the Cold water valve faucet is open. Perhaps the earlier vibration problems have caused a wire to come off the water valve connections inside the machine.

How to fix excessive vibration during spine cycle?


if your machine is new, and you self installed it, you forgot to remove the shipping bolt, for front load-check the back there are four long screw sometime three depending on the brand , for top load tilt ur unit take a look on the bottom- in the middle again depending on the brand they use a single bolt to hold the tub during transporting- remove it, slide out the spacer it will be ok. now if your unit is some years back already you have your problem with its transmission or gearcase for top loader-quite difficult to fix it sir, or suspension mechanism and bearing on front loader sir- u have to replace it or call a qualified service tech - happy washing soon sir
