    Yes, for the SECOND TIME in 4 1/2 years of use. Did it again this weekend and I am really angry. Last time, under warantry, was over $100.00 in labor!!! And the guy said it was a design flaw that Amana was aware of! We are a family of 2 adults who both work, so it isn't getting heavy use either....

    My amana LWD 70AW top loader, doesn't blow a fuse but hums and stinks like electric overload, I changed the capacitor several months ago and it ran for a while, but now I've got the problem back.

    I would like to avoid replacing the motor if that's not the problem. It runs fine once the initial load is taken off the motor.

Wont spin or drain


Does the machine agitate if so this eliminates the motor coupling could be a bad timer place unit in spin if motor hums then power going to motor eliminates this check the drain pump it is white and attaches to the motor with 2 spring clips if there is something stuck in it or a bad bearing won't drain if a washer cannot drain it will not spin hope this helps.

Replaced the clutch and motor coupler a month ago. Ran great. Washed tennis shoes. Came in to remove clothes, didn't spin. Wont agitate or spin, i could hear the motor running. Just replaced the motor...


Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

Kenmore washing machine catalyst stops during rinse cycle


The hum you here is the probably the motor trying to turn, but it is about burned out. If it moves a little with a full load and more with no load, it is probably bad. If you hear a hum and the drum never moves at all you probably have a broken belt.

How do you diagnose a bad washer pump vs a cloged line?


Amana ALW480DAW seems to be not completely draining. When I start a new load water in basket becomes dingy and smells. Washer smells when it has not been used for a couple of days. We have checked the outflow and inflow drain tubes found no problems. It seems to spin and agitate normally, it drains to a point and leaves water in it, not visible in the basket. When we blow on the outflow tube when it is done draining there is still water present, we can hear it bubble.
