I have a pinhole in the outer tub of my Amana Washing Machine

It looks like it is about 1/16 inch diameter. I want to fix it without taking apart the machine.

I like two products: JB weld and marine epoxey. The JB weld will work better for your application, I think. Check for it at the hardware store.

My Amana Front Loader sounds like a pachinko machine intermittently, and leaks water Idea's anyone?


you could have something hung up between the inner and outer tubs. A lot of times, a underwire out of a bra will get hung up between the tubs and can cause a hole in the outer tub. If the unit is over 5 years old and you have to replace the tubs, it's not worth fixing

My Amana sofsound dishwasher is not draining


Hello,



When you open the washing machine lid and discover it full of water, it means it didn't drain before the spin cycle.


You may be confronted with a tub full of sopping wet clothes at an inconvenient time, but don't panic and call a repairman.


Chances are the trouble is with the drain hose or the pump and you can fix it yourself with just a few simple tools.
Difficulty: Moderately Challenging INSTRUCTION BELOW.

  1. 1 Look at the drain hose to make sure it isn't kinked or clogged. If there is a piece of clothing lodged in there, clear away the hose from the pump and yank the clothing out.
  2. 2 Take a look at the switch under the lid of the washing machine. If it doesn't click when you press it, it may be broken and the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Call a repairman to repair or replace the switch.
  3. 3 Examine the clothes tub and the outer tub of the washer for anything that may be stuck in there.
  4. 4 Open the main access panel of the washer and take out the large rubber hose connecting the pump to the lower part of the outer tub.
  5. 5 Check to see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in there. If so, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to grab the clothing and pull it through the port. If it is difficult to reach, you will need to take out the agitator, the top part of the outer cylinder, and the interior tub to grab it. Unless you have special skills and tools, you may want to call a repairman.
  6. 6 Inspect the pump for a clog or frozen pulley. To check if the pulley is broken or frozen, take the pump out and attempt to turn it manually with your hands. If it's stiff or appears frozen, install a new pump.

Thanks for visiting .

Tub spins as if over-loaded but, is not. Machine


broken missing or just disconnected damper spring / ******** top of outer drum. that would cause the symptoms you describe. look up washing machine parts and go to an E-parts store like repairclinic.com or something, enter your model number and go from there. good luck and I hope this helps.

Water is leaking out of washer; think it is during the water draining cycle


The AMANA washer has an outer tub and a water pump. Please check these to make sure you can see where the leak is coming from and replace. Also, if your machine has a dispensing system, check all hoses for THAT system. If upon fill up the out tyub HOLDS WATER and DOES NOT Leak, then the outer tub is okay. Carefullky look at the water pump on drain.

Washing machine will not agitate but it spins.


The brakes are shot,so the tub spins in agitate will also cause it to leak part number R0000014 run about $25.
Look straight up from the bottom pulley you will see the brake assy looks kinda like a clutch plate,look around the outer edge of that you'll see the Pads they have two 3/8 inch bolts in each one,to get the new ones in you'll have to use a screw driver to open the plate.

Hotpoint washing machine outer tub moulding


The only way to resolve is to replace the outer tub, no other permanent sollution, what hotpoint mean is that you would not have to replace whole outer drum only the front half.

Washing machine Drum rattles


It is probably between the clothes tub and the outer tub. To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck
