Question about Amana ALW880WH Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Amana washer leaking.

When the Amana Commercial Quality washer is running it creates a puddle of water on the floor in front of the machine. There is no noticeable water behind or beside the machine. My husband took the front panel off and there is a little water at the bottom of the machine, but no noticeable leaks. Do you have any ideas where the water may be coming from and how we could fix it without calling a repair person.

    Washed up in Minnesota: Our Amana ALW880QAW washer pools water on the floor, with no visible source of the leak. Will inspect the drain hose connectors as suggested. Does not do this every use.



    Thanks,

    I have an amana LWA60AW Washer. Water puddles around base of the machine. I removed the front panel. The bottom of the pump is damp to the touch. The hoses are dry and plyable. Do I just replace the pump itself or do I fix it another way?



    Any help is appreciated.

Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.

Does a Amana commercial quality washer (model LWA50AW) have a lint trap?


You will need to remove the agitator and inner basket to access and replace the lint filter. It is best to replace the filter and not to try and clean it.
Here is a link to the filter.

I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
Model: FAV6800AWW
Serial: 11277017EG

Any ideas??? Help!

Leaking on the floor on "small load" setting only


I have been selling and been doing factory authorized service on GE for nearly 30 years. I have sold many of this model. It's hard to imaging that a machine would leak water on small loads but not larger loads. In a case such as this, a servicer must remember to test the machine exactly as the home owner is using it. I would take pull the machine away from the wall and adjacent cabinets and dryer if hoses permit, (so that I could rule out water coming from somewhere other that the washer) remove the front panel, and have the home owner run the exact cycle with the exact settings and the same clothes load and soap used when the machine leaked. I suspect that some water is splashing over the wash tub. If you use a gentle cycle or a larger load you get less splashing. Even having a few more cloths items in the machine would reduce splashing. You might not expect a solution, but you do deserve an explanation. Some times the solution is strange, for example: I had a customer who said the washer leaked a lot of water onto the floor the first time it was used in the day, but worked great the rest of the day. I came out early the next day and tested the machine, and it did exactly that. What happened was the builder added on this new laundry room and the drain pipe went through the floor before the plumber added the trap. The builder then insulated the area but put the insulation on the room side of the trap, allowing cold air to freeze and plug the drain. After warm water pumped into the drain and most of the water overflowed the top of the pipe onto the floor, the rest of the water melted the ice in the trap and the machine worked fine until the next day after the water had a chance to form a later of ice in the trap again. The fix was simply to move the insulation to the other side of the trap. (OK, here in Minnesota we run into weird things like that, but my point is to test the machine exactly as it is used to find where the problem lies) I'd like you to post a comment when you find your solution.
