Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Do you happen to have a model number located on a sticker below the lid tucked down underneath (not on the lid itself) by the hinges? It’s really difficult to see because they try to hide it.
Perfect, thank you
Since you're seeing plastic inside the tub, it sounds like your basket drive is stripping out inside the basket or the top balance ring on the basket is loose. You can check the top balance ring by just removing the top panel of the washer and unclipping the splash ring. If that isn't the issue, you'd need a spanner wrench to remove the basket so you can remove the inner basket and see what is going on exactly. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to disassemble this style washer (this Amana is made by Whirlpool since they bought them out in 2006). There should be obvious signs of damage if you're getting plastic pieces in the wash.
