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.

You could do with a bit of punctuation in there Mary! Putting my own in makes a difference where I put commas or periods. Only you know what you mean.

You need a service call. It sounds like the pump has failed. When that happens, the machine protects itself and disables the spin feature.

If you are 'handy', you could check the Pump for debris or something blocking it. However, it may be a mainboard problem.

On your machine, it is a known issue!

Cycle timer could be defective

It pulls straight up and off .But after many years this will be easier said than done due to accumulated grime. Pullers with extensions are sold for this purpose, but the price might outweigh the benefit. You can also break the agitator to get it off, but check first to make certain you can get a replacement.

Another trick involves drilling straight down the center (under the fabric softener cup) of the agitator and spraying a lubricant like WD40 on the hole to help loosen the agitator where it attaches to the drive shaft spline.

If power is going into the machine, through the power switch and into the controller and everything as far as possible is either new or in good condition, power should be going out of the other end of the controller into the water solenoid valve, pump and most importantly the motor.
Clearly that isn't happening or your new motor would be happily doing what it is supposed to be doing.

I think you should ensure the power switch is good and power is being delivered and if it is, suspect the controller is defective...

The top-loading NTW4610YQ0 washer lid lock has two main parts. The catch is in the lid on the right hand side. (It's part 8 here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/4iuyzkgib8-001268/amana-ntw4610yq0-washer-parts .) The lock assembly is inside the top of the cabinet in the same area (part 14). (There is a bezel around the lock opening, part 11.) Some of these top-loading washers have a small magnet in the catch. If that has fallen out, you can get the door lock failure. You may also need to check the wiring between the lock assembly and the control board. Look for corrosion on the contacts and check the conductors for continuity. If replacing the lock assembly and catch doesn't solve the problem, then the control board may be faulty. (The control board might not be communicating the lock command to the lock assembly.)

I hope this helps. Another source of the parts and diagram is https://www.partselect.com/Models/NTW4610YQ0/Sections/Top-And-Cabinet-Parts/?ModelID=6786639&ModelNum=NTW4610YQ0&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=1&Selected=FFBE4A55BE392F882CA1266B39A1F1C1FB32E669&Position=5&mfg=Maytag&Type=Washer&Mark=5 .

Your pressure switch is having problems.
Or could be the hose is pinched or some how was disconnected.
Here is what the part looks like and you can buy it here.

The F8 E1 code indicates a problem with the water coming into the washing machine for most Amana washing machines. This could indicate a problem with the inlet valve of the washer, the water hoses or your incoming water pressure. First make sure that the shut-off valves for the washer water lines are open. Close these valves and disconnect the water lines. Keep a bucket handy to catch the water in the hoses. Check the filters for debris and clean out any clogged filters. (Check both at the shut-off and the washer inlets.) Connect the hoses to the shut-off valves and check how much water flows into your bucket. (Some hoses are designed to limit flooding and restrict the flow when the hose is damaged. Replace the hoses if they are older or limiting your water flow.) Connect the hoses back to the washer.

Next do you get water flowing into the washer when you start the machine? If possible, try both a hot cycle and cold and check for different flow rates. (We had the inlet valve on a washer fail to provide full flow for hot water. Replacing the valve cured the problem.) Replace the valve, if it's not opening properly. If you are getting good water flow, you might have a problem with the water pressure/flow sensor. There could be dirt blocking air flow in the tubing to this sensor. Clean out the tubing or replace the sensor. The problem could also be with the wiring or the control board not getting the messages to and from the inlet valve or pressure sensor.

I hope this helps. The parts diagrams for the NTW4516FW2 are available from Sears Parts Direct: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/1l5hhsznio-001268/amana-ntw4516fw2-washer-parts .

(With the faulty inlet valve, we were able to improve the water flow temporarily. We took off the hot water line and filled it with household vinegar while turning on and off the washer. This dissolved the calcium carbonate deposits inside the valve.)
