Just had a service call on ours this week for a different problem (turned out to be transmission going bad) and also asked them about the out of balance since we've been having that same problem. They said it needed new balance springs and that new ones are $30 each and used ones are $10 each.

Pavt234aww fills but won't run


This is the car and truck section - you may want to repost this in the washer section.
The first thing I would check is the lid switch.

WE have a maytag preformer wash machine. Model #PAVT234AWW serial#10099602cv. The washer is level, but it still shakes bad when washing clothes, even after adjusting the load several times


Lift the top frame and check the grommets the suspend the drum, Open the lid and get a good grip on the front inside by the drum and give a good **** to open the top frame, the four grommets should be visiable in the corners. check to see if they are tight, if not replace them.

Maytag performa PAVT234AWW top load washer. The washer fills and spins fine. But when it is the wash cycle, the agitator makes a grinding noise and kind of vibrates in place. Is this something that can...


sounds to me like you have a bad transmission
what happens when you take the agetator off
does it still make the noise or does it go away?
if it goes away when you take the agetator off then you have a bad agetator

I had to replace the pump assembly, the pulley has a bushing in it that was working its way out and rubbing against the base plate of the machine.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK

Washer tub goes off balance every time and washer walks!


there may be a possibility here of the centre hub being worn or the liner tub bearing being worn due to the age of the machine.. here is a list and diagrams of the parts you may need and can get from here:-
http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=mat13mn&searchTerm=img_CW17-6&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=Maytag

try to check for slackness when the tub is empty causing a rocking/slapping motion whilst empty. if the tub is used regularly and to its maximum capacity then the likeliehood is these bearings/hubs may need to be replaced.. the "walking" across the floor will be accented by the amount of items plus water in the tub. and if the tub is off balance,then this will be more highlighted when also full of water and items... if you feel this is over the top,then try to lighten the load that is in the tub at any given time. this will determine weather the bearing has indeed worn .the lighter the load,the less "walking the machine should do in cycle.. the only time walking would be unchanged is during the spin cycle,when the speed is of a constant one and it will vibrate at the same rate. placing it on a rubber mat is not a solution but just something that will make you hopefully think it is solved
and you may as well just bolt the machine to the floor and hope for the best
