Question about Amana NAV5800A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Leaking/ loud I just got a used Amana NAV5800A Washer and i noticed that it is leaking. i took off the front panel and traced that it isn't the hose. And during the spin cycle the Washer is Significantly louder than what it whould be. i suspect that it is the tub seal and a bad ball bearing. i would like to fix it myself but can't seem to find a service manual online. Do you have any tips?

Well the tub seal actually has the bearings inside of it. You can purchase one as a seal kit. However, replacing one requires specialty tools. I do not have the part numbers, but I do have a solution. Go to a local appliance parts store with your model and serial number (these should be located on the top rear side of the console) Tell them you need a seal kit for that model / serial number. When they bring it up, there are step by step instructions of how to replace your bearing seal inside the parts box. On the instruction sheet on the first page, it tells you what tools you'll need to do the job including the specialty tools and thier manufactures parts numbers so you can purchase them there or have them ordered.

My Gallery series Front load washer was making a loud buzzing noise and was not spinning. when i took my soaking wet clothes out there was a puddle of water inside. I tried the drain cycle and a new wash...


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine.In this case you need to check the free running off the mottor manually, check the voltage on the motor,If absent the controller is a suspecct. check the capacitor of the motor. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

I have an Amana 2002 top loader washer model AlW880QAW.


take the front panel off. some of them have 2 screws at the bottom left and right side. Some of them you need to take a putty kinife and run across the lid and the front panel and find the clips there are two. push in and lift the lid. then remove I believe it's a 5/16 bolt to remove the front panel. You will then be able to see where the leak is comeing from. It could be just as simple as a hose or pump. But if it is leaking where the transmission meets the tub then that will be major surgury for someone who has never done that before. Does it sound really loud while it is spinning like a train is in your house? please let me know what you find and if you need any other help

Amana nav5800aww water on floor after spin cycle


Sounds very similar to having something such as a sock or small article of clothing that is too large to be sucked down the drain hose into the pump. So what happens is it hangs around between the inner and outer drums and sometimes gets itself lodged over the drum drain hole, and can allow water to be centrifically flung over the top of the drum. Most times when the spin cycle stops, the article of clothing will dislodge and float around inside the drum only to do it again later....
If you can remove the top of the machine, you can usually see the gap between the two drums and use a piece of coathanger wire with a small hook on the end and "go fishing in the area between the two drums and close to the drain hole location... bet you'll find something in there... Let me know how it goes... and if I can help .. ken

The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

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.

Amana washer leaking.


Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.

Loud increasing "ticks" during spin cycle


take the two screws out of the front bottom panel and fill the machine up with water then get a flashlight and turn to spin and if you look at the top of the transmission behind the motor watch for any water flying out it there is that is the cause of the problem if not you have a bad motor

Amana NAV5800 - How do I take off the lid/cover


Jon,

There should be two screws at the bottom of the front panel. Undo these screws and the bottom of the panel should swing out. The top will be held by clips or pins that will release as the bottom of the panel moves out. I suggest you lay a folded towel on the floor to prevent chipping the enamel finish when the panel drops free.

By the way, please ensure the machine is unplugged before you attempt any work on electric appliances.

Good luck
