Question about Amana NAV8805EWW 3.3 Cu. Ft. Elustra Tub Washer

Washer hums on rinse cycle

My washer hums on the rinse cycle and does nothing else. It does this on all the other cycles also (perm. press gentle ect.). On spin it works. The belt seems to be o.k. The capaciter for some reason is just dangling. I plan on tieing it down since I see no mounting bracket but a piece of some sort of tape wrapped around guessing for protection, but when I shake the washer around it bangs against a lip on the bottom. I havn't smelled any electrical smells or smoke.

It sounds as if you are using WARM water for the wash cycle since your complaint begins with the rinse cycle. The rinse cycle generally uses COLD water, so I must deduce that your washer is not filling up for the rinse cycle. The humming sound is likely coming from the fill valve being starved for cold water.
Investigate your cold water supply to the washer and if you have good supply, you may want to replace the fill valve.

Let me know what you find...Thanks for contacting FIXYA.com

Assuming you have the cold water pipe connected to the cold water solonoid, then there is a definite issue with the inlet cold water valve. Replase it. Suggest you swith unit off and either use a cable tie or tape and secure the capacitor as soon as possible. Sounds like you have had work done on the unit and it hasnt been replaced correctly.

The drum is not spinning and the machine stops and has LE on display


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.Is this a new installation?

In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?

Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?

Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

NOTE: Make sure the drum is not overloaded

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].

In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.



Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

It could also mean the hall sensor is defective and will need to be replaced.
