Question about Amana Washing Machines

1 Answer

Water spills over tank onto floor

After completing the wash cycle, the machine starts to spin and exit the water; as it starts to spin (still full of water) water sloshes over the top of the tank and onto the floor. This, of course, happens more readily when the machine is on higher fill settings. The machine is 5 years old and this problem just started.

How do i drain the washer for moving it


Mike,

I cannot tell whether you are talking about (1) the little bit of residual water in the machine after it's done, or (2) about a machine that's stopped mid-cycle with a good deal of water, so I'll respond to both cases.

(1) The lowest point in the washing machine is the drain outlet at the back to which the drain hose attaches. First remove the free end of the drain hose from the drain pipe and place it in a bucket sitting on the floor. That will get most of the water. Then place a towel on the floor and remove the other end of the drain hose from the machine. Remaining water will spill out from the outlet and hose onto the towel. You might get a little more if you lift the front of the machine, tilting it backward.

(2) If you can't drain the machine and it's full of water, you will need to siphon it. Take a piece of tubing, at least five feet long. You could use a piece of garden hose if you have nothing else. If you don't have a door or window nearby, you will need TWO buckets. Place the buckets on the floor in front of the machine. Place the siphon hose into the washer tub starting with one end to fill it with water. When it's completely in, cover one end, take it out, place it into a bucket. If the siphon doesn't automatically start, get down low on the floor, place the hose into your mouth and inhale. You may have to do this several times, possibly covering the tubing end with your tongue between inhalations. When the bucket is nearly full, switch the hose to the empty bucket and empty the first one. You will probably have several buckets of water. (Of course if your washing machine is near an outside door, you can simply start the siphon outside and omit the buckets.)

Remove the front panel. Pull the plastic hose off the air bell on the front left side of the tub.
Use a toothpick to clean the residue out of the hole in the air bell. Replace the plastic tube.
Set the washer on SPIN and turn it on. After the spin cycle finishes start the washer normally.

My washing machine is flashing err2 and is not spinning. I have lots of clothes locked in a machine full of water! Help! wm-1460tve bush washing machine


sounds like either the pump is blocked or broken.
bring machine forward so that you can tilt it back so as to be able to undo filter cover.
Be aware, lots (and i mean lots) of water will exit so a) have a big bowl and b) only undo filter cover a little so can retighten quickly.
Repeat until all water gone, remove cover completely and clean pump and filter area.
Refit cover, put machine back on floor, put on spin cycle and if it was a blockage, machine should empty. If not, new pump time I'm afraid

The water is not spinning out. the water is pouring out onto the floor when the spin cycle starts. not leaking when in wash cycle


You may have a pump that's bad. When it goes into spin cycle it assumes the water will be drained within a period of time before it goes into high speed spin. If it goes into high speed spin and the pump hasn't done it's job then you will get a bad mess, flood, water all over.

Keeps flashing SE


I recently had this happen but with no error message on my model, the rinse symbol just kept flashing and nothing was happening. I tried running a spin cycle or rinse and spin. The rinse & spin started but stopped when it got to spin. I finally determined that the water was not draining out. I ended up emptying a bucket and a half of water out of the emergency valve near the floor (which spills water everywhere) and found a lint ball that was plugging it. After this I tried running just a spin cycle and it worked.

Water level high when spin/drain cycle begins.


The water level is higher when in the rinse mode; but it should never leak. Examine the interior through the rear, there should be a loose hose somewhere. Or at the filter area. Plug off the mains caution.
