Question about Amana Washing Machines

1 Answer

Amana washer tub rotates counterclockwise during wash cycle.

Bought a used Amana LW4303W washer and found the tub rotates counterclockwise during wash cycle. If the lid is opened during the spin cycle the tub ''coasts'' to a stop. What causes this? Is the brake malfunctioning?

Does the brake need new pads or to be replaced?


Thanks for the help.

How to add fabric softner to the amana washer with locking lid


Check and see if there is a cup in the top of the agitator. Some machines have you put it there, turning back and forth during wash doesn't bother it, but the spin to empty the wash water causes the softener to go out through slots in the top of the cup and be held in the agitator. when it stops the softener drains into the tub, ready for the rinse cycle.

Amana Washer LW4303W. Tub spins much to freely while the agitator agitates. Could be coincidental but this problem seems like this all started after I replaced the drive belt. Washer cycles like it...


Yes, there is a brake that holds the tub while the machine is agitating. I don't have a manual handy for that model, but you probably have a plastic pulley in the center bottom of the machine. The brake is above that. There is a cam arrangement inside the pulley that will disengage the brake when in spin.

Noisey spin


The noise is from the transmission and is usually pretty expensive. You really are better off getting a new washing machine.

Loud and leaky


Tub bearing replacement on ANY Amana (Maytag) can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.
