Question about Amana Washing Machines
If you would drain the water out with a hose (siphon it out) and remove the wet clothes, then look underneath the machine and see if you have a drive fan-belt, you may find it broken or slipping.
A very few machines have a drive shaft with a coupling instead.
God bless your efforts.

Cylon, sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. It's not seating and weeping water. For series 10 the part number would be 40097701. Not that hard of a job. Catriver..post back.

Door won't unlock
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.

SOURCE: water will not drain from
You need to access drain pump and check drain hose at the back. There are also a couple of parts to be tested. For those you may want to call a technician.
The access to the drain filter should be located at the front bottom side of the appliance, behind a protective trim. In there you should find a cap that can be unscrewed to release water and remove blockage. Have a container ready to collect water. If there is no access in front, then access is at the back (uncommon).
If there is no blockage at pump, check the hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. Check that the top of drain hose is not lower than 30" (760 mm) . A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.
To start and complete drain part of the cycle, the electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle.The pressure switch is a round shaped parts connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. The switch and hose must be cleaned or replaced. Pressure switch is located in the control assembly.Access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch.
Also check the lid is closing well.If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.
Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.
Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.

SOURCE: I have an Amana Tandem 7300 and when it cycles, gray powder is everywhere and some of our clothes have been ripped up while being washed. Please tell me this is an easy fix which I can do myself!!
I have the same problem with my 7300. The grey material is actually the door gasket being rubbed and abraded away. Mine finally wore through the gasket entirely and had to be replaced. I have yet to find out why, or find anyone who knows why.

possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the
inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the
inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL
SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level
to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is
most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must
be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for
rinse and wash.
