Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Spin Cycle Machine vibrates so roughly that it has knocked loose the tube on the fill switch twice causing flooding and major water damage. Does not matter how you place the clothes - does this even if there are NO clothes. Also, loud screetch at end of spin cycle. Hate this machine!!!! Any solution other than replacing? Thanks!

The water comes out in the detergent/softerner liquid dispenser; instead in the main washer.


Water Problems
Sometimes water will not enter the machine in order to properly wash clothing. In that case, the water may be turned off or the water fill valve, water temperature switch or timer may not be functioning correctly. A defective water valve or timer can also cause the machine to not enter the spray rinse cycle. Another issue that arises is when the water will not drain out of the machine. The drain may simply be clogged, or the drain hose or pump may be malfunctioning. Water will splash on the floor if the pump or water valve is not working, or if the machine is operating on a low level of water with a high level of agitation, which means the force that promotes all the functions of the machine.
Cycle Problems
Malfunctions of the various cycles are common as well. If no agitation occurs, the agitator spine may be stripped, or the motor or internal transmission system could be broken. If the machine will neither agitate nor spin, the belt or coupling is most likely the problem. There are a number of issues associated with either no spin or a slow spin including an open lid, defective lid switch, spin tube, wigwag, timer or wigwag wire or a drive belt that is not properly adjusted. When the motor will not run at all, first check the power cord to make sure that it is plugged in. If that does not solve the problem, issues are found in the timer, lid switch, motor or water level switch.
Other Issues
Sometimes washing machines will excessively vibrate or "walk," meaning that they begin to inch forward while the motor is running. Check inside the machine to see if there is an unbalanced load. Heavier items, such as sneakers, cause vibration as well. The load can be fixed and any unnecessary items removed. If the problem persists, other possible issues include an improperly leveled machine, a worn-out snubber, broken suspension springs or shipping pins that have not been removed. Another problem that arises with washing machines is oil leakage caused by transmission failure, which is one of the more costly issues to fix.

I put in a load. The machine filled up but did not stop filling. The dial did not proceede to next step, it stayed at the 10. Overflowing EVERYWHERE. When we moved the dial manually to spin, it drained...


your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water

First became aware there was a problem when machine overfilled resulting inj flooding,cold water fill would stop when i turned on a tap ,suspected water pessure switch.new water pressure switch fitted...


If it works O.K. in a different wash cycle, then the timer could well be the issue.
Using that last cycle you described, will it perform a complete normal cycle ???

Small hose that is behind level control to tank came loose flooded room reg large drain hoses were fine was this due to out of balance heavy load bumped it?


If this is a toploader, the usual cause is an overload. when there is an article of clothing that isn't all the way below the top rim of the inner tub, and when the machine hits the spin cycle, that piece of clothing can actually pop that fill tube out of its place in the top of the outer drum... the next time the machine goes to refill, it makes a royal mess all over the floor.
If the fill tube flange is not damaged (just knocked out) you can reinstall it. but if it's cut at all, replace it...
The out of balance could have been from overfilling as well.
Hope that helps you .

My Whirlpool LSQ8543J has started overflowing after rinse cycle


Replace the water valve where your hoses connect to the washer.

There is a plastic tube in some washers that automatically detect when the unit is at proper fill. Sometimes these tubes fall off, so the machine does not know when it is filled. If you have a newer unit, perhaps the "float switch" is out, or a wire off, and that would confuse the washer and let it continue to fill up. You should not be experiencing anything in the spin cycle, since the unit is not taking water in, but pumping it out, thus not utilizing the float device.

Water sometimes does not shut off. flooded twice. happens intermittently.


If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.

it could be the water level switch or the pressure tube that goes from the water level switch to the side of the tub.
