Amana LWA50AW agitates only on delicate cycle
« on: May 13, 2014, 02:10:47 PM »
Can someone share lessons learned from an Amana LWA50AW that only agitates, drains on the delicate cycle only?  I'm decently handy in repairs.  Thanks!

Thank you for validating.  I've ordered the less expensive version of the timer based on several other's recommendation. 

What happens to the time where it is perfectly fine and then suddenly gets jacked up like this?  It's been very reliable for ~15 years so I cannot complain.

Again, thank you.

I orded the Speed Queen timer as suggested, it arrived in just two days and I swapped it out as described in the forum and instruction manual posted.  That was it !!!  Thanks again for your help and nailing Right the First Time.
