Question about Amana Dishwashers

1 Answer

I started my Amana Tandem 7300 and stopped it a minute after to add a shirt and now it wont start again... The ''wash'' light flashes and it just bips but won't start.

Tried turning off the breaker for a while, emptying it, checked if the drain was clogged, turning it on/off... nothing works!

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

I recently had the same problem. I actually took the two hoses off of the pump and found a penny in their. It was actually difficult, I couldn't figure out an easy way to get the water out first and had quite a mess. But now the washer works again.You'd have to get all the water out then flip it over, remove the bottom , theirs two clips holding together the pump mechanism, unlatch those, dissconnect the two hoses and look in and shake to see if something is jamming it.

Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.

SOURCE: water will not drain from


You need to access drain pump and check drain hose at the back. There are also a couple of parts to be tested. For those you may want to call a technician.

The access to the drain filter should be located at the front bottom side of the appliance, behind a protective trim. In there you should find a cap that can be unscrewed to release water and remove blockage. Have a container ready to collect water. If there is no access in front, then access is at the back (uncommon).

If there is no blockage at pump, check the hose at the back.
Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. Check that the top of drain hose is not lower than 30" (760 mm) . A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.

To start and complete drain part of the cycle, the electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle.The pressure switch is a round shaped parts connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. The switch and hose must be cleaned or replaced. Pressure switch is located in the control assembly.
Access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch.

Also check the lid is closing well.
If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.

Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.

Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

I have a Amana tandem 7300 front loader washing machine. It's stopped working nothing's happening except the display lights. Stopped in the middle of the wash cycle is there a reset button? Offbalanc

The only reset is to unplug the machine from power for about 5 min's and if that fails you may need to replace the washer timer control board.

Why is my Amanda 7300 tandem washing machine not doing the wash cycle? It stops after water has filled and stats to beep 3 times in intervals....

Sometimes this can happen when the power button does not return completely when pressed in. My cheap & cheerful solution was to use a bit of Blu-Tak on the button, so I could pull it all the way out.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Test a pressure switch: Click on :

Check the drum surface of your dryer for possible object that may be stucked in the drum holes that may cause damage to the clothes. You may do similar checks of the washer drum if your dryer drum checked negative.

Good hunting.
