The first step to repairing this problem is to remove the hoses and back panel of the washer. Next detach both the hoses attached to the pump ( have some towels handy because their will be a lot of water pouring out of the pump). Before removing any screws on the pump, use a wrench to remove the bottom platform securing the pump inside of the washer. On the the Amana washer there should be about three bolts holding this small platform down. After unscrewing the bolts, unsnap the wire connected to the motor and remove the platform to get the entire pump out of the washer. The next step is to unscrew the screws on the bottom of the platform to release the base of the pump. The next step is to put the new pump on that same platform. FYI the new pump may not fit on the platform. To solve this problem, unscrew the motor/pump(the black thing) from the base holding the motor( the cream or white colored part). Do this step for the old and new motor/pump. Screw your new motor to the old base. Screw the base with the motor attached back on the platform. Connect the wire in the washer back to the motor. Screw the platform back in the washer and reconnect everything that was disconnected to remove the motor/pump. Finally put the back panel back on the washer and run a test cycle. The washer should now be able to drain.
