Top Portion of Agitator Not Working
« on: June 30, 2010, 06:12:25 PM »
My Amana washer has a two piece agitator.  The top portion is not working and my clothes are a tangled mess at the end of the wash.  Looking for a part number so I can repair it myself.  I do not want to purchase an entire agitator if I can help it.

Model NAV5800AWW

Thanks for the info.  I have never repaired an applicance myself but will give it a try.  Could I just replace the cam and dogs that are in the top portion of the agitator?  I can't find the parts for an Amana, but Whirlpool makes them.  Would they fit my washer?

I have another problem/question.  The inner tub on my washer spins during the entire wash except when it is fillig with water.  Should it spin during the agitation and the draining?  It is an Amana NAV5800AWW.

I do not think it should be cause the clothes would get all knotted up. You must need new BRAKE PADS.
