My Amana washing machine stopped spinning.

My Amana washing machine LWA65A (bought in 1999) stopped spinning. I'm assuming the belt needs replacing. How difficult is this job?

Hi,It's not that big of a job.First UNPLUG the power cord! with the washer about 18 - 24 inches from the wall tip it back and have a helper hold it.The bottom panel should pull away from the main cabinet by firmly prying with a wide (2 in.) pry bar If this doesn't work look for screws which may be holding it in place.Once removed you should be able to see the motor belt and larger driven pulley.Also look at the condition of the pulley on the motor,some were made of plastic and simply fall apart.There should be some adjustment bolts near the motor mount,loosen them to install the new belt and retighten. Good luck and work safe.

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?

The washing machine belt will move to agitate, but will not move to spin. The spin action burns up the belt. This is an Amana LWA50AW


open rear cover , see if belt slips. then remove belt and rotate empty drum if its jam than drum bearings need to change. if drum is free then belt might be loose and needs replacement.

Sorry that does not sound right,,. there should be interlocks that stop agitating and spinning from happening at the same time. go to the dealer you bought it from and tell them and there may be a recall for your problem and they may replace your machine at no cost or low cost to you no matter how long you have had the machine,at least in theory..

Amana Washer LWA50AW doesn't spin


Ifi t does not spin it may be the timer. Try it in the delicate cycle to see what happens. Actually try all teh cycles to see if it spins in one of them. IF so it most likely is the time and is a 15minute job to replace.

Amana dlw330 washer belt urned & broke again


Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps
