Question about Amana ALW880WH Top Load Washer

Washer stopped after filling, small load

I put in a small load, and turned washer on. After it filled up, it just stopped. It never made any noise or anything. I have checked the breakers and changed to another outlet, but nothing. It is not off balance either. I have messed with the knobbs and finally left it to sit. I have been doing laundry all day, did this do something? Any advice?

    My machine fills (large, small, or medium load) and then won't start washing. It sounds like the motor is trying to do something and then it just clicks off. If I wait about a minute and then turn the knob to the rinse cycle, it will spin and the water will drain out. If I have the washer fill up again, it repeats itself and won't start agitating??? What's Wrong?



    Please advise.



    Thanks!!!

    I have a Kenmore top loading washer and I put a medium load of clothes in and it filled with water, then stopped. I have checked the breakers and everything seems to be in good order. Help!

I would check and make sure the lid is not bent or bowed. If the middle part of the lid is too far down when closed, the machine thinks it's open and wont run an agitate or spin. If it is bent, just bend it back for a quick fix.

Won't fill


Try putting the clothes in and filling it with a bucket via the top opening (Cold water will do)

If it starts and washes then it is the fill valve which has gone faulty , if you put in the normal fill level and then exceed by say another bucket full, that indicates it is the pressure switch.

Ps

You might try taking the fill hose off the back of the amchine and clean out the small filter which is just inside the opening

becouse it was over load it may be out of balance becouse of the
exessive weigh.

Water will not stop filling tub.


the problem is that your pressure switch is not working properly. if you take the screws out of the back of the head you will find the pressure switch. first unplug the washer then undo the hose from pressure switch. blow trew the hose, then blow into the pressure switch if you hear the pressure switch click then re assemble and try again put on small load and watch if fills almost to the top or over flows replace pressure switch

Water Overflow


hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.
