I have a 2008 Amana washing machine,stainless tub,super capcity plus/sofsound
1/3 speed select/710 rpm. when the spin cycle starts it is so loud u think it's getting ready to fly out the door. please help me fix the problem.
Answer Roger, can you isolate the noise to a specific area, bottom of the washer, bottom of the tub, top of the tub etc. At this point it sounds like you have a worn out spin bearing/milk stool and or tub bearing assembly,W10116790 , 40004001, it's a pretty involved repair, but it's do able. Thanks.
How do I open this model of dryer (i.e. top and front panel) so that I may access the drum and support rollers for inspection and replacement?
Answer Hello Greg! Here is the information supplied from the manufacture on how to remove the top and covers:
Console: Disconnect power supply. Remove control panel assembly. Remove eight screws, two on each side and four across the front, holding console to top cover.
Top Cover: Disconnect power supply. Remove fron panel. Remove two screws (one in each front corner) which hold top cover to cabinet. Remove main wire harness from components on control panel. Remove control panel assembly. Pull main wire harness through opening in top cover. Remove console. Push top cover back to disengage from cabinet and remove top cover.
Cabinet Removal: Disconnect power supply. Remove front panel. Remove top cover assembly. Remove tumbler. Remove tumbler rear. Remove six screws (three on each side) holding cabinet to base frame.
Hope this information helps!
