Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
My Maytag washer will not spin or agitate. I can hear the motor running but the tub will not move. I have checked the belts and they seem to be fine. The pulleys will move by hand very easily however the tub will not budge. Any suggestions you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I am ready to take a sledge hammer to the thing. Not that I think it would help, but I would feel better.
Jesus crist remember all the work that machine did for your family and forbiden it, it sound to me to be the transmision, but wait for catriver, gona tell you somes tips, put your hammer in the closset by now..good luck

On this model the motor turns one way for spin and the other for agitation. This action is controlled by a thrust bearing located just undernieth the plastic cap on the center pully. Many people are thrown off thinking a transmission problem when it's actually this thrust bearing kit. However, it could be the trans. If so you have a 5 year warranty on it, part only. There is also a number of service flashes on this model including: snubber kit, flash number 26-756, which has to do with vibration during spin. Things you want to make sure of is that the pump is not seized up, leakage from the center tub on to the bearing and brake. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service flashes on this model, you could be covered. Other than that my guess without seeing it would be the thrust bearing kit, part number 12500036. Not a bad job, the kit comes with instructions. The hardest part is getting that last washer on. Catriver...Post back.
