The model number is probably NTW4605EW0. Most appliance models from this manufacturer end with a number. Sears Parts Direct has the Use and Care manual for the NTW4605EW0 here: . Amana has addtional documents for the washer on their support page: . Use the drop-down menu and search box to locate the manuals and installation guide. The current link to the manual (in English) is .

I hope this helps. I don't see a printed copy of the manual available from Sears Parts Direct. You can print it yourself or take the file to a print shop (Kinkos, UPS store) later.

Washer will not drain:
Thedrain water pumpis the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue and even a no spin issue?. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed.

The washing machinedrain hoseis where the water flows through to get the water out.If this drain hose is blocked, kinked, bent, or clogged, the washer will NOT be able to remove the waterfrom the tub. Check the drain hose to be sure it allows the water to flow freely. You can take the drain hose off and run water through it in your sink to be sure it is not blocked. If there is water STILL in the washer when you remove the drain hose, grab a bucket as the water will exit from where you disconnected it Thewater pump belt(to drain out the water) may have broke or become frayed or loose.If this belt breaks then it is unable to drain and remove the water from your washer. Inspect the belt to see if this is causing theNO DRAINissue and remove and replace if needed.

If thelid switchis not working as required it will cause your washer to not drain (and many other problems).This may be unlikely as a bad lid switch will usually cause your washer to alsonot agitate or spin.However on some models this can vary. The best thing to do if you have a suspected bad lid switch is to test it. It can fail electrically and or mechanically. If mechanical failure is the issue, you should be able to see if it is cracked, broken, or not in place to make contact with the lid. To test it electrically, use a multimeter set on Ohms and test it for continuityMy advice is free cuz God is good!

if the lid lock is broke it shouldn't be doing anything.
If it is broke, it needs to ne fixed/replaced.
If it is doing other things, more troubleshooting is necessary.

No, you probably need a new motherboard. When the power comes back it surges and is dirty power. Call in a service engineer and claim costs to the power utility for restitution. Ask tech for written documentation that the board failed due to power surge. Provide details of the date and time.

Is it heating the water? Many machines won't continue the wash cycle if the water temperature isn't achieved. Usually caused by blown heater element. I'm not familiar with your machine but generally it's a matter of removing the back panel, disconnect the terminals to the heater element, undo fixing bolt and pull it out. Should have a resistance of around 50 ohms, but if you're water isn't getting warm it's probably open circuit, ie infinitely high resistance. Replacement element is usually around £20.
