Question about Amana Washing Machines
The washer set for a 1-1 1/2 yrs. We installed it and the motor would not turn. We then removed motor and replaced the pump that was the source of the issue. Now the washer will not operate correctly - if you fill tub with more that 2 inches of water it will run for a 1 second and you will hear a click and the motor shuts off.Then you will hear another click and it will operate another second and click and shut off again. Since this I am able to put clothes in to spin them out as long as their is no large level of water. I am puzzled by this - I am able to spin things out but not wash but it does agitate but that is about it. When full it just continues to run for a second then shut off. Have any ideas I am about to just give up lost my last washer to bad motor and other issues not worth fixing.

SOURCE: Amana washer "goo" on clothes?
Ann, these Amana's are the mother of all washers to change out the seal and bearings. It's possible you just have a lot of gunk built up on the inside of the basket from years of washing. I would not put a cent into it. You are better off getting a new direct drive washer. Catriver...post back.

Cylon, sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve. It's not seating and weeping water. For series 10 the part number would be 40097701. Not that hard of a job. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate
Just fixed the same problem. Its a broken belt. Take the front panel off and to the right of the tub you will see a pulley and belt. We replaced both the pulley and the belt for around $40. Was real easy to do yourself.

suspect noisy brake not a major concern but not a pleasant noise to listen to..best not try repairing yourself ..believe that may be a maytag version if so brake spring can be dangerous to release without proper tools

you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing
