Question about Amana NAV8800E Top Load Washer
Actually the washer was full of water, and had been agitating for about 1 minute when it stopped and started smoking..... it wouldn't do anything for about 15 minutes, and then I was able to run the spin & rinse cycle.
Ok, that's a different scenario. Generally, when a washer is agitating and develops an overload that stalls or overheats the motor, the problem could be caused by:
1. Too many clothes for the amount of water level selected. If clothes don't have enough water to circulate in properly, it can put excess pressure on the agitator which transfers to the gearcase, drive belt, and finally the motor. The motor is thermally protected and stops running until it cools down, then it will try to restart. In the process the drive belt could burn slightly to completely,so you may want to inspect the drive belt for burned areas.
2. Transmission malfunction, where something inside the transmission breaks due to an overload and jams a gear. End results can be the same as above.
I suspect a clothes overload may have caused the problem and once the overload is alleviated, the washer should operate normlly if the belt didn't burn,
