Question about Amana NAV5800A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer continues to spin slow in the last spin cycle.

My top loader is an Amana LW2503W model but is a top loader and should work about the same. My question; is this a belt problem or do I have a machine that has a motor with a hi/lo switch on it. Previously when it was working correctly it was as if the motor speeded after most of the water was spun out and the spin cycle was about twice as fast as it was at initial start up of the spin cycle. It currently spins slow the entire cycle and leaves the clothes with far too much water in them. To get the water out of the clothes I currently have to run the clothes through the final spin cycle twice before they are dry enough to put in the Dryer.

    I have a Whirpool LSQ8511KQ washer that doesn't spin fast enough to get all the clothes dried out. I have all ready replaced the lid switch becouse of it not working properly and pulled apart the water pump to see if anything could be clogging it but it appeared to be fine, no lint or anything. Any advise would be helpfull. Thanks

Red Ryder, the motor is 1 speed on this model. A couple of things to check; one would be the belt. Look for shavings, cracks or if it's shiney, could be worn. If your p number is p1118410ww, looks like you have 2 belts, agitate and spin and pump. Pump-R0606507, spin-R0606539. Check the pulley, make sure it is not binding, lube it up, and check the pump, something might be binding there. As long as you don't have a grinding, howling noise during spin the bearing should be good. back.

Amana washer making a grinding noise when draining and getting ready to spin Model # NAH6800AWW


sounds like the couplers going, if its a traditional top loader, the coupler is in between the motor and the transmission and are meant to shear off to protect the machine from damage, overloading. they dont last forever. once you get the motor off the part is right there..

if its a front loader check the belt teeth.

Top loader does not spin fast enough to spin dry.

possibly the clutch is slipping, i've heard you can take a #10 washer and put it in one end of your clutch spring caps and that would tighten it up

Won't drain or spin

Sounds like the lid switch which is only about 30.00 to fix if you do it yourself. It's a little difficult but it's much better than replacing or having someone come in and do it

Whirlpool washer front loader model LHW0050PQ

This is not a Malber machine but the following fix has worked for the Malber washer. Try unplugging the machine for at least 2 minutes. Do not just turn it off as there is still current going to the machine .This should clear the computer. If this does not work, the imbalance may have overloaded the circuit board requiring replacement.
