    My Amana washer stopped spinning. Removed the front cover and found a broken belt. Further examination appears difficult to assess replacement steps. Please help, your advice would be greatly appreciated.

look around the motor you will see the mounting bolts they just might need to be losend or removed in order to remove and install the new belt some have a sleeve in the middle of the bolt that needs to be removed, try to do one bolt at a time, some times that helps.

Amana washing machine (ALW880QAW). Does not work in spin cycle. Washer works ok in wash cycle, and in draining water, just the new belt is too loose when it switches to spin. It just burns up the belt....

probably the lid switch is faulty,remove screws behind control panel,then pull control panel toward you and lift up and lay back,now remove 2 screws in the lower front panel by the floor and remove the cover,then 2 more screws to remove upper front panel above the lower one,then 2 more screws in front hold the top on then raise top up like a car hood and the lid switch will be under the top cover

I have an amana Model ALW880QAW Top Loading Washing Machine. It sounds like a bearing is going bad when the washer is in the spin cycle. I am familiar with repairing applicances and I would like to know if...

I have an Amana top loading washing machine.. The machine recently emitted a burning odor and the machine has stopped spinning. when turned to spin cycle there are bumping sounds and it no longer spins. Does this model have a belt which might need replacing or does it have a transmission and does it sound like possibly extensive transmission work. If it is the transmission, is it likely repair costs would be greater than the value of this machine?

Amana ALW880QAW doesn't spin and agitation is slow

I could be the pump slowly ceazing causing the belt to slip which would give a burning smell.
Motors in those units, are well build...have a service guy in but DON"t say anything about the motor.. because they will say it because you mentioned it
I sounds like you pump

My washer (ALW880QAW) agitates but does not spin. I took off the front cover and the found a black circular piece lying there (What it goes to I do not know). The belt looks okay. The motor goes in spin...

That is the drive coupler and it has worn out. You can order a replacement set that comes with two plastic retaining pieces that slide onto both your transmission and engine and also a rubber piece that goes in between these two plastic pieces. You can search many places to find out how to replace this part. I just ordered a set and shopped around a bit and mine was $20 after shipping.
