I have an Amana NTW4516FW3 top loader washer. It won't spin or agitate. I replaced the actuator shifter and ran a calibration mode on it afterwards. When I ran the diagnostic test, it was code F7E1. Belt looks great, and the water flow is great along with draining. It sounds like it wants to spin, but no movement. Any advice?

Are any lights still on or flashing when this problem happens? Does the tub spin freely when you turn it with your hand?

Here's the tech. data sheet for your model: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_VSk1cuHgkuPVOZYUPCZVccBNI6G6KQG/view?usp=sharing

Do MANUAL TEST MODE: Page 9

MANUAL TEST MODE — See page 4 to access Manual Test Mode. = ON
Pressing the START button will activate/deactivate each output. When the output is activated, the corresponding Status LEDs will flash. IMPORTANT: Lid must be closed and locked to perform SPIN & AGITATE tests.

LID LOCK--->Lock and unlock the lid. NOTES: When lock is enabled, the “Lid Lock” LED will turn ON. Will only lock when lid is closed.
Will only unlock when basket RPM is 0. If lid is not closed, washer will flash status LEDs on and off.
--->If lid does not lock or unlock, go to TEST #8: Lid Lock, page 18.

Here's the parts list for your model: NTW4516FW3
