    I have an f6 e3 code with 3 long beeps then pauses and does it all over again. What can I do to try and fix it. I have unplugged it. Before resetting it has helped

      Chassidy Hubbard,
      Are you getting the error code f6 e3 on an Amana washing machine, Amana dishwasher, or an Amana Oven?

      We have researched and found that the error code F6E3 on a washing machine = Communication Error: ACU Cannot Hear UI
      Check continuity in the UI harness.

  3. We have Amana NFW7300 washer.
    It stops and beeps (3 fast beeps) and the wash light blinks 9 times, pause then 2 times.
    It’s a PITA pressing stop, open, power, etc until it does something then we can restart.
    This is an intermittent problem.
    Anyone have insight into what this error code (9, 2 or 2, 9) is?

    i have an Amana frontloader washer door was locked. got the top off and released the door but all it does is hum. no codes are showing on the washer. how do i find out what code it is?

  5. I have an owner of Amana Washer, NFW7200TW. My washer shows non-standard error code with (reversed F and E). Once I started it, water starts to fill but stop running after 10 – 15 seconds with a beep sound. What is the problem and how can i fix it?

    1. I just fixed this problem today. It turns out that an upside down capital letter f followed by e is a code for the thermistor. On your model you must remove the front panel and door and look at the bottom of the front of the tub. You’ll see a small black round plug with an orange and a white wire connected to it. After unplugging the washer, disconnect the plastic connector. Check the wires for continuity at each end (the other end goes into a small square shaped box in middle at the top of the washer under the lid that slides back.) then check the 2 metal probes coming out of the thermistor. If the wires have continuity, replace the thermistor.

      William Swartz,
      Fault codes related to the Amana washer motor and capacitor is Error F7 E6.
      The main problem that happens with the washer motor or capacitor is the washer fills but will not wash or spin.
      The capacitor or motor is at fault when you have the error code F7E6 or f7 e6.

      Bridgette,
      Amana Washer = F9 E1 error code will show if the washer is not draining properly.
      Check that the washer drain hose is not blocked.
      Make sure the drain hose height does not exceed 96″.
      Check and clean the drain pump filter of foreign objects.
      Check connections from tub to air trap.
      Check air trap to pressure hose.
      Check pressure hose to water level sensor.
      Check that there is not excessive suds in the washer.

  6. Amana Washer has code rP. It is a model from 1992 – LW 4603 or LW 9203 on use and care guide. It starts washing, then the code appears and washing stops. Finally could get it to finish thru the spin and rinse cycle. When done, code still appears on display.

  7. Amana Front Loading washing machine 8 years old. Come to start cycle push button and after 30 seconds machine clicks and light turns red beside door lock. I noticed as well when setting my time for the wash cycle i used to have 29 minutes as an option and now i do not it shows 30 minutes.

      Bobbi Link,
      Your Amana washing machine is draining too slowly…

      Things to check:

      Check the drain hose and make sure it is not bent or clogged.
      Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter.
      Check for the Drain Pump to be sure it is in working condition and not clogged or jammed.

      Also… Remove the filter panel on bottom front of washer.
      The filer is inside, simply unscrew if from the pump and clean it out.

      Kaylene,
      This indicates the drain pump is clogged or blocked.
      You will have to disassemble the washer and find the problem with the drain pump.
      Check the drain hose too.

  8. Amana washing machine, model NTW4630YQ0. The water will not come into the washing machine? Why? No error codes.

    1. DIY Project Help Tips

      Sarah,
      1. Make sure the water valves are both open (Hot and Cold).
      2. Be sure the water hoses are not bent or crimped.
      3. Make sure the water filter screens at the water inlet valve are clean and not clogged.
      4. If still no water… Check voltage and proper operation of the water inlet valves.
