4 out of 5 people found this instruction helpful

The knob and timer were a piece of cake to replace. Amana designed this machine for extremely easy access to the control panel area (i.e. timer)

The belt was the challenge (as should be expected).
The water pump must be removed to replace the belt .
This requires a #25 Torx bit and an awkward position.
I dicided to drop the motor and pump together to gain easier access to the pump mounting screws.
This was definately the key to success.
