Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
HELP!!!! My washer will not spin. the problem started when the water inlet valve went out & I did not replace it right away. I have been turning the water off manualy. Well a few times I didn't get it off in time and dumped water every where. Every time that I did this the washer would not spin for a few days. I dumped water for the last time on Wednesday of last week. I replace the water inlet valve today, but the washer will not spin and it has been a week since I last dumped water. Where do I go from here?
My washer machine will not spin and rinse and now it want even agiate

The spin pulley is made by plastic. It worn overtime becoming shorter then original shape. When the thickness of pulley is short, it won't be able to engage the clutch inside the transmission to make the drum spin. The spin pulley is not expensive. I read an article about a gentlement replacing a transmission, the brake assembly plus the new belt could not make it spin. I carefully examined the whole thing by turning the belt in the direction of spinning and saw the transmission slipped. That was why I figured out. Transmission has 2 ways of turning: one is for agitation, and the other is for spinning. The pulley has to turn inorder to compress the brake assembly to free from friction and at the same time to engage the clutch so the drum will spin.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

Tips for a great answer:
water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or
there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water
line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a
pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to
the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the
motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is
shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
link to replace the inlet valve:
after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come
in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated
so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check
the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the
valve or motor or pump.
