Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
My Maytag washer started growling something fierce last night. Everything still works, but I'm scared to be in the same room with it. The noise only comes from the first cycle when the agitator is working. The spin and rinse cycles are trouble free. Could this be some kind of bearing problem or is it a component problem??
I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position and was grinding against the base of the pump. You could see where it had ground the paint away. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit. Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base. Hope this helps. Good luck :)
