Question about Amana NAV8800E Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Smoke I started the washer and about 1 minute later it stopped, so I checked and it was smoking from both the control panel and tub! I let it sit for a bit, then was able to run the spin & rinse cycles. The smoke smelled like electrical, not rubber. Any Ideas??

    A correction... the model is Amana NAV8800AWW not the E if that matters. Also the tub was filled all the way... it stopped working about one minute after the agitation started. I will check the water inlet connection area.

Your complaint is a bit vague but since it had only been in the cycle for 1 min., it should have been too soon to have enough water to start washing, so it's possible that the fill valve may have shorted out. Unplug the washer and inspect the area where your hot and cold fill hoses connect to the washer. Turn the water off and remove the hoses. If you can gain access to the part that the hoses were connected to, you should be able to visualize where the burning came from. It is possible a small water leak may have dripped onto the coils of the valve and caused it to short out, so that will need to be fixed also.

Hopefully, This is what your problem is.

    Ok, your clarification leads me to to suspecct that you may have overloaded the washer and this would cause the belt to burn and the motor to overheat and shut down. Inspect your drive belt to see how severely it was damaged. Your motor should not have been harmed.

My 95 Integra smoke at the start white smoke what is that five minutes later it goes away


White Smoke --usually a sign of a failed head gasket
or other issue, allowing coolant into the cylinder & a major
repair

White Smoke only on start up after sitting (Not Lasting 5 Min)
is raw fuel (gasoline) from leaking injectors, leaking fuel into
the cylinders

Injectors can fail,wear,leak or be dirty & NO you can not clean them

Forget the Genie in a Bottle The injectors have to come out & be
mailed away for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

That condition - the raw fuel- will over heat your exhaust converter
& ruin it as well as many other problems-lack of fuel control the
main one.

I have a Kenmore Oasis Elite 110.280442700. I bought it at the beggining of 2008, never has given me any problem. About a month ago, it started to make a really loud noise during a spinning cycle, as if it...


April, You say you are suspicious that the smoke could have originated from the motor, BUT have you confirmed it? Have you tried running a short cycle without a load to see if the spin cycle rattles the machine or whether the machine works? Watch for smoke and turn off the machine immediately if you see or smell burning. If the motor is burnt, I think replacing should not be an option but rather replacing the machine should be considered.

Maytag washer tub will not spin.


There is a clutch assembly under the tub that controls the tub and the agitator. It sounds like the problem is with that.

Briggs and stratton runs good for 5 minutes then starts to smoke


My first thought is that the throttle lever is being pushed so far forward ( max RPM's ) that you are running the engine 1/2 or better choked
Look at the choke butterfly with the throttle in your normal run position it should be completely open
This may require and adjustment in the control rods or might be as simple as not pushing the throttle wide open
