Question about Amana Washing Machines
You'll need to replace the transmission seal. For this repair job you’ll require special tools like T20 Screwdriver and other similar tools. You can disassemble the machine by following the steps mentioned below--
1. Remove the front panel (screws on each side)
2 Remove the two 3/8 screws pointing upward. This will allow you to lift the top up.
3. Remove the agitator.
4. Remove the spanner nut (requires tool and its left hand thread).
5. Remove the top off the outer tub (some snap off and some have a clamp all the way around the tub)
6. Remove inter tub.
7. Remove the set screws in the mounting stem (the treaded stem that the spanner nut was on).
8. Now with the same tool remove the mounting stem.
9. The outer tub is mounted to three legs. Remove the bolts that hold it on and remove the hoses from the tub. Once it is done remove the outer tub.
10. Remove the rubber boot.
11. Prop the tub up on something so that you won’t damage the stem that the drain hose connects to and step on the seal to push it out.
12. Turn the tub back over and install the new one the same way (may want to lube it with a small amount of soap).
13. On the transmission there is a metal sleeve where the tub sits, remove it. Now reinstall the new sleeve.
14. Reassemble the washer replacing the seal, boot, tub bearing, mounting stem and spanner nut.

Also check the Drain pump and drain hoses inside the washer if they are firmly connected and not leaking. You can see this diagram for more details--

Thank you for your post, Norma!
I see that the water valve would not shut off inside of your Frigidaire washer and caused the door to open then leak on your floor. This could be an issue with your water valve, control panel, or door latch. The door should not open when in operation. I would recommend contacting your manufacturer for further assistance for your washer. -Matt

Thank you for your post, friend!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
