Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag washer. Model PAV1000AWW: It won't spin. Agitates OK. Water pumps out OK. Just won't spin. Makes no unusual noise. Bad transmission?

Posted by on

    Looks like the transmission died from water entering the case. When we removed the center post {under the agitator} we found an o-ring that had been sheared. Transmission is starting to leak a little water out onto the big plastic pulley. We'll probably replace the washer.

    Many thanks for the help!

If the motor is spinning fast, but the tub is not spinning, then it is the transmission. If the motor is not spinning, then the high speed windings of the motor are shot and it needs a new motor.

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

Can't find where the clutch goes on a Maytag Performa PAV 3300, is it in the transmission?


This washer is a single belt driven model that uses a thrust washer system to release the brake when the motor reverses. In wash mode a 200# spring locks the tub place while the transmission agitates the clothes. The pump cannot remove the water in this direction. In spin mode the the brake is released and the water gets pumped out. Here is a great pictorial that shows how to replace the kit along with a Maytag single belt washer service manual.

Kenmore Elite Model 11023032101 will not Spin


if it agitates and pumps out water it is not the lid switch.  you most probably have a bad brake/clutch mechanism.  the fact that it spins tells me the transmission is good

My Maytag washer agitates, and will pump during the spin cycle but will not spin


Check the lid switch is operating. It will not spin for safety reasons if it thinks the door is open.

If the switch is good test for power at the wigwag (spin) solenoid when in spin cycle. Since it agitates the solenoid itself could be bad.

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

Whirlpool direct drive top loader will not spin


Hi, Is the humming noise coming from the timer area? Do you know if it agitates ok?
When you have it in spin cycle, Try lifting the lid and see if the hum stops.
The reason for these questions is that on this model, if it drains the water out but does not spin, it is either lid switch, coupler, or transmission.
If it's the coupler, it will not agitate either.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

I have Maytag Model#PAV1000AWW which is a Top Loader.At this time the washer makes sounds in the spin cycle,but does not spin or drain the water.HELP!!!!!


  • it sounds like it could be a bad belt. tilt the machine over and look at the very bottom, you will see the belts. they are spring loaded and can be changed without any tools.

  • or you may need a transmission pulley and bearing repair kit ($30). this will fix the center pulley (spinning problem, not he draining issue) if it is stripped out. as you will see, the center pulley is made of plastic and does have frequent problems. but the good thing is that the parts are cheap and easy to change.
