Question about Amana LW8203
Machine only spins when in agitate mode. Was stays in machine but spins instead of agitate.
The problem is the timer has failed. This is easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the replacement. You can also enter in your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions.

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
