20 Most Recent Amana NTW5100TQ Top Load Washer Questions & Answers

The contacts to the start winding for the spin direction are burned or dirty. Those are inside the timer. If it's a mechanical timer, you may be able to disassemble it and clean the contacts. Some of those are screwed together; others have metal tabs that are bent across slots. The latter type can be opened by carefully straightening the tabs; just be aware that you do that only a few times before the tabs break. If the timer is an electronic circuit board, you'll have to identify the motor direction relay and replace it, or if it has a snap-on cover, carefully pop it off and clean the contacts. In either case, if the contacts are completely burned through, you're looking at replacement of the timer or timer relay. You might be able to get a few loads done by cleaning badly damaged contacts, but don't count on it for long.

Hi, well NO it's not the motor and there are no diodes inside the motor, thats not actually the way they in which they are made to rotate and reverse direction.
This is done by "Driving" the motor with a pulse width modulated signal, that makes the motor spin,as the electricity is switched from pole to pole the motor's stator is attracted to that pole and moves forwards or backwards depending on the direction of the waveform.
So whenever a motor isn't working, spinning, then most often if the motor works, as it actually appears your is OK, then the "Controller' is at fault. The controller in this case is the Main Controller Board. This must be replaced in it's entirety. If you wish to DIY, then please find below a service and repair manual, to use to try and track down exactly whats wrong...

service and repair manual above..
But you see these days, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center,Anma in your case, please contact a local or head office and ask for a referral to an Authorised service center. I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. You see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option.

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

If the hot water is not working, then check the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine and turn off the water. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the valve. Pay particular attention to the hot water side. Make sure the screens are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter and check for continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid and the assembly will have to be replaced. I'll attach a photo for reference. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

is there any humming coming from under or front of your washer? whirlpool built machines for about 10 years now are "direct drive" ...the motor has a plastic coupling held in place by a rubberish plastic donut type of thing, its an inexpensive fix and there are videos on youtube on how its repaired..its under 10 bucks and usually cures any lack of agitation/ spinning ...i had a roper by whirlpool and once i replaced it from a parts machine i salvaged it was fine.. so check you motor coupler/ coupling and that maybe your answer, if not there is a set of wires and a cut off in back of the motor to prevent overheating, which may have tripped..also a good point to check.. good luck

Turn off the water, and remove the hoses from the back of the machine. Inside there you will see a small gauze strainer. It is probably partially blocked with limescale and debris. It empties, because the logic board doesn't understand why the machine is not filled within a certain time, so it aborts and pumps out.
