Amana Washer - Pump Assembly

Is there a way to take the pump assembly apart? Looks like a dress sock was pulled into the intake somehow...can't figure out how it go through or around the bucket itself... Any suggestions?

And yes, tried pulling the sock out but only came out so far then stopped..

Thank you!
Gary

Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

What does F-21 flashing mean


unplug from power source...remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw wirh 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel)...open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clokwise, lookout! lots of water will gush out... back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump)...re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. In my case, there was a piece of a pencil lodge in the pump impeller. I had to disassemble the pump. it can be done if you are patient and able to figure out how the plastic thing come apart.basicly means debris is stuck in your pump if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped its how im able to keep helping people with similar situations Thanks again Rick

HOW HARD IS IT TO REPLACE THE BELT ON A AMANA ALW430RAW WASHER


that belt replacement requires some effort but you can do it with a little patience. then you will have your reward plus your washer will be fixed. you'll need a torx head screw driver ( if u don't have one they sell them at the hardware store) and a 1/2 inch socket. it requires removing motor pump assembly from washer and then removing pump from motor. it will take you a while. it's not as hard as it looks. good luck.

Amana front load washer door wont unlock


Hi.

Nd is drain error.

Check inside the control assembly, you may have a technical diagram with instructions pocked in there.

You will need to check the drain pump hose for blockage.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, then the fault may be the pressure switch, the pump, or the control assembly.

In that case the best thing to do is calling the support number listed in the owners manual to contact Amana.

F 2 error message


Hi there,

Try the following:
1) Turn off breaker to unit, for safety.
2) removed the front panel, as described above.
3) removed the screw holding the drain pump filter assembly to the main unit.
4) gently pulled the drain pump filter assembly out of the channels holding it to the washer chasis.
5) gently pulled it out far enough to reach over a car washing bucket I had put into the open riser drawer.
6) gently unscrew the filter drain knob enough to release water into the bucket. If your using a smaller drain catch (cooking pan, oil pan, etc) you'll likely need to close the drain knob and empty your water.
7) once all the water was out (~3 gallons I think), I pulled out the filter to find my prize..... Five of my 2 year old's missing socks, including some since he was a newborn. Yeah... yuck!
8) cleaned out the filter and filter assembly... and threw away the socks and other goop.
9) Put it all back together: put the filter back in, returned it to its chasis housing, and put the screw back in the filter assembly. Then, put the front panel back on and flipped the breaker back on.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

CHANGING A BELT ON AMANA MODEL # ALW990EAW/PALW990EAW


To replace a washer belt, remove power, remove back panel. On the left side is the motor, clutch, pump and belt. The pump is driven by a coupler clamped to the pump and clutch assembly. Loosen one of these clamps enough to move the coupler away so the old belt can be slipped past the coupler and also to facilitate the new belt to be installed. The belt runs in a pulley built into the top of the clutch assembly and can be "run" onto the transmission pulley very easily. To adjust the belt tension, pull out the washer, tilt it back against the wall......there are 3 nuts and bolts holding the motor assembly to the bottom frame, loosen these nuts off, the holes on the motor bracket are oval shaped so the motor assembly can be moved back and forth. You can move motor to tighten or loosen the belt, just make the belt fairly snug and don't over tighten it.
