Hello,


When you open the washing machine lid and discover it full of water, it means it didn't drain before the spin cycle. You may be confronted with a tub full of sopping wet clothes at an inconvenient time, but don't panic and call a repairman. Chances are the trouble is with the drain hose or the pump and you can fix it yourself with just a few simple tools.
Difficulty: Moderately Challenging INSTRUCTION BELOW.

  1. 1 Look at the drain hose to make sure it isn't kinked or clogged. If there is a piece of clothing lodged in there, clear away the hose from the pump and yank the clothing out.
  2. 2 Take a look at the switch under the lid of the washing machine. If it doesn't click when you press it, it may be broken and the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Call a repairman to repair or replace the switch.
  3. 3 Examine the clothes tub and the outer tub of the washer for anything that may be stuck in there.
  4. 4 Open the main access panel of the washer and take out the large rubber hose connecting the pump to the lower part of the outer tub.
  5. 5 Check to see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in there. If so, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to grab the clothing and pull it through the port. If it is difficult to reach, you will need to take out the agitator, the top part of the outer cylinder, and the interior tub to grab it. Unless you have special skills and tools, you may want to call a repairman.
  6. 6 Inspect the pump for a clog or frozen pulley. To check if the pulley is broken or frozen, take the pump out and attempt to turn it manually with your hands. If it's stiff or appears frozen, install a new pump.

THANKS.

Amana Sofsound 1 door will not open


You will be able to open the door by unplugging machine, remove top cover and look down to door. YOu will see a cable running from door latch up towards the motor.

This cable will need adjusting.

Either that or the door latch is broken/scratched.

Hope this helps?

Sandy grit left on dishes.


I was having a different issue with the same model but I think my issues solution might help yours. My dishwasher was not draining properly. It was the air gap that sits on top of the counter by the sink. It was clogged. We removed it and cleaned it out. Maybe if your air gap is slightly clogged as well it is not allowing the dirty water to flow out properly leaving you with gritty dishes. Hope this helps.

Amana sofsound II will not drain I can see nothing


There is a solenoid that needs to move for the machine to drain. The solenoid is located at or very near the drain hose under the machine. It should have two wires going to it.

The solenoid won't work if...
There is something inside the pipe preventing the solenoid from moving OR
The wiring to the solenoid is broken/worn out, OR
The controller is not telling the solenoid to move OR
The solenoid is broken/worn out.

If you remove the drain hose from the machine you should be able to check if anything is blocking the valve.

Check for power (use a voltmeter but be careful it is probably 110Volts) to the solenoid when the machine should be draining. This verifies the controller and the wiring.

Check the resistance of the solenoid.

Many dishwashers have the wiring diagram in a little envelope under the machine. Take the panel off below the door and look around for any paper. Sometimes the resistance values for the solenoid (and other components) is listed on the wiring diagram.

Be careful and turn off the power when necessary.

New Amana dishwasher leaving (dried) food particles on the dishes/not cleaning well


CHECH YOUR DRAIN HOSE. IT SHOULD HAVE A HIGH POINT SO THE DRAIN CAN DORK PROPERLY. THE HOSE COULD BE TOO LOW UNDER THE SINK AND DRAINING BACK INTO YOUR DISH WASHER. OR YOUR GARBAGE DISPOSAL HOLE CAN BE CLOGGED

push the button for a different option: it's like a radio button in Hypercard: one must be chosen, and choosing one will "unselect" the others.
