Question about Amana NAV5800A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer starts, runs a few seconds and stops,does it over and over

Washer will start, runs a few seconds, then stops. After several minutes it will do this again and again until end of cycle. Doesn't matter which cycle you put it on. Doesn't matter what size of load. Doesn't matter what water temp. Takes 24 hrs to go thru a full reg. cycle.

Sound like the internal overload on the motor may be going out .Thsi is usuaklly due to bad or worn bearings. If you know anything abotu electricity,take a voltage reading at the motor whe it is in the run cycle(when it stops) If you stil have have the 110Volts to the motor then the motor is bad and need to be replaced.If you do not then you wil have to look elsewhere for the problem.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Calypso washer stops/runs every 5 - 30 seconds in the middle of any washing cycle. No error codes. It just stops and than runs again all the time and cannot finish any washing cycle. It is 8 years...


I had the same problem. The washer control board has an intermittent failure. If you unplug power for about 30 minutes then plug it back in you will get a PF code (power failure). Ignore this code and push start again. It may run till it finishes the cycle or it may start cycling again right away. A new board costs about $180 at repairclinic.com

Washer stops several times in the middle of cycle


possibly it could be your un-balance switch getting very sensitive to any type of movement of the machine, normally they only actuate during the spin cycle when you have a very off balanced load of clothes

Frigidaire top load washer won't rinse


this can be two issues. One could be the control knob. there could be a malfunction here. secondly, you may have a faulty water valve assembly. the relay or solenoid may need to be replaced. i would start with the control knob.

Washer constantly draining after first cycle


For the machine to keep filling it would indicate that there is a siphoning problem. Check the outlet hose is not running along the ground, it has to rise up then loop back down or the water will just run straight down the drain. If the problem only happens after the first pump out it would indicate the end of the outlet hose is lower than the drum or there is no air break around the outlet hose. (The stand pipe should be larger in diameter than the hose from the machine).

Washer won't work after power outage


Inspect your motor. It maybe going thermal cutoff. Overheating this will pop the C/B. The motor will run for awhile until it heats up. When the motor colds down it may work for a few minutes.
