Is this with the machine off the entire time or running the machine? if it is with it off check your water hoses for tightness see if the gaskets are leaking or the hoses are leaking, if its after you run it and then it loses water check the water pump and water pump hose and hose clamps. without some more information I can't help you beyound that.

Water leaks from bottom of washer a day after I've done laundry


My guess is you have a slow leak in the inlet. Probably somewhere after the valve. Try turning the valves off between washes. If that fixes it you know it's an inlet leak. There is usually a pair rubber hoses (same connectors as a garden hose) connecting the washer to the inlet valves. In order of ease/price of fixing:
  • one of the gaskets in the hoses is cracked ($0.05)
  • one of the hoses has a crack or isn't sealing properly ($10)
  • the valve outside the washer is leaking ($15 if you DIY, $150 for plumber)
  • The connector or valve in the washer is leaking ($20-$30 if you DIY, $$$ if you pay a repairman, $0 if it's under warranty)

Water leak on floor


Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

When my Amana washer is not in use, it drips water into the tub all the time. Could this be a mixing valve problem?


Hello,

Yep, it sounds like your water valves are leaking. By turning either the hot or cold off at the faucet itself, you should be able to identify which one is the culprit. Then you might be able to replace only that one valve, if they are separate units (most are not).

You also might try soaking the valve in CLR or vinegar, but only the portion that normally has water exposted to it (not the wiring or the coils). It will not be a permanent fix, but it will help stop the leak until you can get a replacement ordered.

Amana NTW5245TQ1 Topload washer....water draining out from basket...


Unfortuneately, I think you have two seperate problems. Fortuneately, this is easy to verify. As far as the not spinning, it is generally caused by loose hinge screws on the lid. There is a arm that sticks off the back of the hinge to press on your lid switch. If the screws are loose, the arm generally wont be able to press the switch. Just tightening ther screws on the right and left hand sides of the lid corrects this. You can verify this has corrected the problem by setting the washer to spin without adding any water. As far as the leaking. Well, there are multiple sources for this, but the most common is the water pump. To verify this, unplug your unit and pull it out from the wall. Tilt the top of the washer back towards the wall until it rests by itself at about a 45 degree angle. You are looking for a white peice of plastic towards the bottom front of the machine. There will be 2 black hoses going into it. run your finger across the front side of it feeling for bumps. You may have had something get lodged in there and poke a hole. If you can not find any moisture on the pump (yes it can leak from the hoses of back of the pump also)look for any signs of water having leaked. (you generally get water spots just like in your dishwasher when you don't use a rinse agent). If you still can't see anything, tilt the unit back forward and add 1 cup of water to the machine. Tilt it back again and see if it's leaking. Continue adding water until you can get your leak then trace the water back. However, if you do in fact have a bad pump, they are availible from local appliance parts suppliers (in the phone book) or on-line from the maunufacture. Any troubles or other problems? Drop me a line back. Otherwise,
