Question about Amana ALW880WH Top Load Washer
My washer has gradually stopped agitating havier loads. I am now down to the smallest load it will wash. All the other cycles seem to work fine, it just wont agitate after filling. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Without knowing the age of your machine, your agitator "dogs" may be wearing or worn out. It should be fairly easy to check them out. You will need to figure out how to remove the agitator Usually the agitator will have a fabric softener dispenser or a cap on the top. Pull the dispenser/cap off the top of the agitator and you may see a screw holding the agitator in place. Once you lift the agitator out, the "dogs" should be visible. Most appliance stores should carry the dogs for your particular washing machine. I've added a couple of photos so you have an idea what to look for.
Black powder under the motor??? The motor uses carbon "brushes" to electrically make the motor move. Without going into motor theory, I would tell you that the black powder, in a small amount, is normal. The brushes can be replaced, and again, can be found at most major appliance dealers
