    OK so If for some reason, taking the unit
    apart and cleaning it doesn't fix the noise, you'll need to order and
    replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

    First thing you need
    to do is take out the bottom rack. After that you need to remove the
    bottom wash arm. To do this, grab the center plastic nut with your
    pliers and spin the washarm off. Next, you must take off the arm that
    goes to the back feed line. This comes out by turning the arm about
    45-50 degrees in the clockwise direction. It clips onto the back arm so
    unclip it as you are turning it. You have to turn HARD, do not worry
    the plastic is sturdy and will not break. Just remove that arm and also
    the plastic nut.

    Ok now we're down to where the picture shows
    us. There are 4 torx screws holding on number 1. Remove these screws
    and pull up on number 1 to take it out.

    After that you will see
    all the rest of the parts. You must take number 8 off. There is one
    screw holding the plastic cover number 8. Remove this and DO NOT remove
    number 6. That is the part you are trying to get to. That part CAN
    NOT be easily reinstalled so just clean the screen with a toothbrush,
    but please do not remove it because it's very difficult to install and I
    have no tips on how to do so--- it's just a battle.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Just moved front load beaumark washer into a new house, and it won't fill with water. the display lights up and you can here washer trying to fill (humming noice). All display lights come on and it...

It sounds like your water inlet valve is either not getting a signal to let water in from your control board or the water inlet valve is defective. Since you are hearing a humming noise, I would say that the water inlet valve is defective or has been damaged in transit.

Is this machine a front loader,I bet you have a clogged drain pump.
Try this with no cloths in unit put Draino-Max Gel. Add about 1/3 of bottle and let it stay in washer about 2-3 hrs. now shut door and start machine put on heavy-duty hot-water.this may take a few times,but this well take care of dog hair ,strings and also sanitize machine after. After machine starts to run better,bleach machine every other week.

Won't agitate

these noices are often caused by a water issue the rince cycle is a cold water intack so i would surgest turning of the cold water at the mains or shut off valve then disconnect your cold intack hose & check for any clogging it could be a build up of lime scale or lint & the simple removal & cleaning of this hose could fix your problem.. alternativly ensure the cold water supply is turned to the on position to allow the water trough to rince

Hope this helps

Amana washing machine makes loud noice when trying to spin

sounds like you are dealing with the same problem as me .
take off the front panel (after unplugging power) take a flash lite and look at the large pulley at the back just below the pulley is the helix check to see if they are worn .
