Your panel shorted out

replace control panel and wire harness is my recommendation

Although depending on age, these two parts are quite costly the panel alone is 272$ retail

if you decide to buy it you can call amana 866-616-2664

to purchase them, or local dealer normally can sell you the parts


but with a major short like that id recommend replace, if you buy parts bring model, serial, and MFG manufacturing number starting PALW

When water fills up it will not agitate


This is a typical problem. What you have is a broken lid switch. This is either located on the door way of the washer or under the control panel. Not a difficult thing to change.

I have an amana AKS30E gas cooktop and the ignitors are sparking approximately every 30-seconds on their own. I have checked all the knobs etc and each burner lights fine but with the gas off and ignitors...


I think it's more likely to be a wiring problem, either bad ground or loose connection on the controls of the spark module connector. Look carefully at the switches on the controls to see if they are asking for spark when they're supposed to be off.

The spin cycle is not working on my Amana ALW990EAW. Therefore the water is not draining as well.


Check your lid switch. If this switch is broken the unit will not spin or drain

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.
