You guys may be my last resort and I am wishing I had found you sooner.
I have an Amana LWA50AW, top-loading, 1998ish washer.
It will fill in all three cycles but only agitates AND spins in delicate. Now I will say that I have never used delicate before BUT it seems kinda wimpy now.
I figured-bad timer. So I bought a used one. Same problem. I find that highly unlikely or coincidental. So I figured there must be another problem.
The only other references I have found online to stories like mine was one where a guy replaced the motor and it didn't help and another guy (on here) who replaced the timer and it did work. So I am at a loss.
