Question about Amana Washing Machines
SOURCE: washing machine belt replacement
The repair sounds worse than it is.
2 hose clamps
4 big bolts
3 torx screws
a little wiggling and viola!
hints: take a good look (or digital pix) of the belt before you remove the pump, keep a few large towels around to handle the water in the hoses and to cover the front edge of the machaine to make it more comfortable when you're removing and installing the motor, the connector has a latch you have to press while removing the cable, the mounts for the motor frame/pump assy. need to be sprung out a bit when reinstalling.
Comment: the shaft from the motor is "double-D" shaped and slips into a plastic fitting in the middle of the pump. I don't see how you can break the pump unless you drop the motor assy on it...
Kudos to "sir fixalot" for giving me the courage to rip in to it...

Door won't unlock
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.
