Known for their great value and no-fuss features, Amana washers are trusted by homeowners to effectively clean their laundry every time. When your washer fails to spin or agitate during a spin cycle, this may indicate a problem with washer parts such as the drive belt or the motor coupler. Before calling a repair technician, try these basic troubleshooting procedures to get your Amana washer in working order for your next load of laundry.
The washer's computer sends fault codes to the machine's motor for various reasons, halting spin cycles until the washer is reset. Before looking for washer parts, perform a master reset by unplugging the machine and plugging it back in after one minute. Next, open and close the door of the washer six times within 12 seconds. This sends a signal to the washer components to reset.
When washing a load, check to see if the tub is filled with water when the failed spin cycle begins, which may indicate a clog in the drain hose. Disconnect the hose, and remove any debris before letting the water drain out. This piece of washer repair help should fix the spin cycle once you start a new load.
Many top-load washers don't function if the lid is not securely closed, which is detected by the lid switch. Close the lid firmly to see if the spin cycle begins, and try pressing the switch manually to see whether the problem lies with the lid contact or the switch itself. If the switch is broken, search Amana repair parts for a replacement switch.
