Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
The tub on my washing machine spins at the same time it is agitating. You can accually move the tub with your hand while it is stopped. I checked while in a store and I know it should not move. The tub is also able to be pushed from side to side and seems loose. This spinning at the same time pushes water out over the side of the tub onto the floor. We checked for a leak but couln't find any. The machine fills properly, and goes through the functions at the time it should as the position on the control knob indicates. It also drains on time and empties completely. I would appreciate any possible solution you may have. Thanks!
Patrich, basket spinning while agitating has to do with the brake system. You either have a broken brake spring, defective brake rotor, defective brake liner or warped stator. There are special tools needed to perform the repair as the spring is under a lot of pressure and could cause injury if not experienced. Catriver.
