Amana Tandem 7300 washer does not spin properly.

This answer was rated:

Why wont the Amana Tandem 7300 washer spin properly? It will complete the wash cycle but won't go into a sufficient spin to remove soapy water, it just stops and does nothing. LEDs stay the same, still in wash mode and no alarm or error codes.

Hello my name is***** will be assisting you with this problem today :)
Can you give me the model number from the sticker around the door please.

Ok thanks for that James, other then the clothes feeling wet does the machine completely drain?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, some water on bottom

Ok James, this will be one of two problems, either the drain filter is clogged or the motor control board has failed.

First take the panel out from under the door by removing the 3 screws along the bot***** *****p.


Once the panel is out you will see the pump, built into the pump is the drain filter, grab some towels then slowly unscrew the drain filter, when the water stops running pull the drain filter out and clean it out. Put the machine back together then try a new cycle.

If you have the same problem then the motor control has failed, this is located fixed to the floor near the motor. This will then need to be replaced.

I strongly recommend you order the replacement part from the link I have provided below, The delivery time for the part is excellent plus they also give a great warranty on their parts even if it has been installed, unlike other suppliers who don't allow any returns.
