The agitator will just pop off with enough working with it. There are no screws that hold it in place. Just some slight prying and some wiggling and it will come off. They are on there pretty solid so just work with it

this is a no drain error or slow drain issue you need to check for anything that would or is restricting the water from draining out of the tub.
if the water will not srin then you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water.
then check all your hose to and from the drain pump

without really looking at it i would have to say it Sounds like water seal gone in drum. If back of drum at the bottom is wet with black or dark run stains this is the problem.
Good luck

the machine is nknown to have bad main seals, in turn leading to the corrosion of the spin bearing, in which case makes it sound as if a helicopter is landing in your laundry room

Remove the front panel, two screws on bottom. On the bottom of the motor is a white colored pump, if the water is coming from there you need to replace the pump. you can find this part on line, just google Amana washer parts.

Let me know ifyou have any more questions.
