My Amana Tandem 7300 (approx 1 year old) front loading washer
isnt working correctly. GF first experienced issue so I am not certain of the initial symptoms.
The washer stopped in the middle of a load and did not drain. When GF first tried restarting the cycle she heard a quiet buzzing or humming.
At present, the washer turns on fine, allows you to select different cycles, water temp.
When you press start, however, the door locks and nothing happens. The washer doesnt cycle past the 'add garment' stage. No more buzzing.
When I press and hold the start/pause button, sometimes the washer makes a half hearted half or quarter spin and then stops and releases door lock.
What I have done so far: Unplug unit for 5+ minutes - no change. Disconnected drain hose and blew out (towards drain) - was not clogged, no change. Blew into drain output at rear of washer - did not feel clogged, could hear air bubbling up into standing water inside, no change.
