Between the front panel and the top there is a seam. On each side of the seam there is a clip. Take a putty knife and push on the clip. One is on the left and one on the right. Than just pull the top of the panel straight back and unhinge from the bottom. Hope that helps, Dave

WE have a maytag preformer wash machine. Model #PAVT234AWW serial#10099602cv. The washer is level, but it still shakes bad when washing clothes, even after adjusting the load several times

Lift the top frame and check the grommets the suspend the drum, Open the lid and get a good grip on the front inside by the drum and give a good **** to open the top frame, the four grommets should be visiable in the corners. check to see if they are tight, if not replace them.

Haz2557 maytage washer vibrates excessively

Here is an exploded view and if you roll over the area it shows more detail. Roll down to the bottom of the shaft below the tub and you will see damper pads. I beleave this is what you want to replace.

Maytag top load washing machine model PAV 2300 AWW. I've put in new springs but washing machine gets out of balance very easily. Have you got any suggestions?

If you have replaced the spring is the tub over to one side not in the center of the hole there is what they call a snumber ring on the bottom of the base the washer sets on that could be wore out but it is really hard to replace and you will need a special tool to compress the break

I had to replace the pump assembly, the pulley has a bushing in it that was working its way out and rubbing against the base plate of the machine.

Maytag washer pavt234aww goes out of balance regularly

Just had a service call on ours this week for a different problem (turned out to be transmission going bad) and also asked them about the out of balance since we've been having that same problem. They said it needed new balance springs and that new ones are $30 each and used ones are $10 each.

Lid swith

Open the top of the unit by placing a putty knife beween the top and the front panel about two inches in. There is a spring lock that you need to push in, then lift the top. Once you lift the top, you will see the lid switch. Remove and replace. Let me know if you need further help. Jim
