I had a similar problem, but the precursor to this was a loud squeal when the machine came to a stop at the end of spin cycle. This squeal lasted for a couple of months (since I was afraid to take it apart). The one day there was a leak during the drain cycle, so I looked behind it and found the flex hose that goes between the drum and the pump. I replaced the hose after about a week, and when I tried to use the washer, it did not spin anymore. So I turned the washer upside down, pulled the drum out, and found a big 'caution' tag on the plate, but don't be worried. Out of the 6 screws that hold the plate on, I took out three opposing ones and bought 3 of the same pitch but only that they are 2" long. Then I put a nut on each one, and put them into three opposing holes in the plate. Run the 3 nuts down to the plate, then take the three remaining short screws out. Slowly back off the three nuts equally, and within 1.5" the plate is safely off. Then I lifted the spring out along with the brake drum. The drum had rusted itself in place. This was because of the water hose leak. So I sanded the brake drum lining lightly to remove the glaze, and sanded the place where it was rusted to. Then I put it all back together, and it works like new!

Maytag pav2300aww wont spin


Does it agitate for the wash cycle?
When you get to the spin cycle, is the motor running and 3 pulleys underneath turning, and the tub is not turning?

If so, I had this issue with this model. The brake would not release, and I had to "persuade" it. Also, I had to set the plastic cam correctly on the bottom of the unit to that is would engage and release the brake at the proper points.

Did not need a bearing kit, just had adjust a few things that got knocked around by the movers. Only took me 6 frustrating hours. Hopefully take you less than 1. BEWARE the 200# force for the spring!

Cost $0. Mental anguish = still tabulating.

Maytag performa PAV2300AWW will not spin but sounds like it is.


I think you have guessed it right. There is probably something stuck between the tubs. I have seen this caused by a lot of things. You should look for things as small as coins, shirt buttons, cufflinks etc., Also I advice you not to turn on the machine until the blockage is removed.

Good Luck,
Sai.

THE WASHER IS NOT SPINNED THE WATER OUT


Check the belt, the pump, and the thrust washer.The thrust washer wears down and won't release the tub. All these symptoms are easily repaired with minimal tools.

Does not spin


Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.
