Could be a control problem, or a motor problem. Be sure drain hose isn’t too far down drain pipe creating a siphon effect.

Try moving the selector knob to a different setting. If it doesn't work on another setting, it is most likely the controller itself.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect


Hope this may help;

SOURCE: my roper top load washer model rtw4440vq fills with water but wont wash, spin or drain

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Amana nfw7200tw will not run. all wash settings read 1 extra minute. Is this a code or something like that?


have you tried unplugging and resetting the computer, it seams hung in the last cycle, can you open the door and remove all inside, reset it again and try it, the washer sounds like it has water in it and needs to drain first,if it is full of water you have to drain it, by moving it and taken the drain hose off the pump,if that's the case i recommend flushing the inside with hot water and some bleach right through the front door or reservoir on top,after you get it emptied, the water sensor may be full of soap, by the way the soap your putting in this machine should only be about a 6th of a cup, I know it sound crazy but a half or a 3rd is to much, for the sensors, try this an get back to me,Matt

Hi

for the question of water comming in the spin cycle, yes its normal we call it a spray rinse. For the shaking check your leveling and also make sure that the back leveling feet when lifting back of washer up and down that the foot mechanism is functining.

You're not done yet. The washer pump probably is leaking. Lots of basements being pumped out in this area as a result of the snow.

Amana washer machine will not hold water. The drain hose is fine. What esle could be wrong?


The drain hose could be stuck too far down the drain pipe allowing it to siphon the water out.Also if it seals too tight into the drain pipe it will siphon the water out.

1 Answer

Water Drains out as fast as it is filling


You have too much of the drain hose inside the drain line causing the water to siphen out as its coming in. Pull some of the drain hose out and secure the hose. There should only be about 8 inches or so of the hose inside the pipe.
