Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.

I had a problem similar to this. There was a bobbie (?) pin stuck in the pump. Google how to take the front off and then disassemble the pump. (It will be on the bottom right side in the front of the machine). Pretty simple. Took about an hour and a half.

I would agree with that diagnosis. That is a symptom of a worn thrust bearing for sure and it is a quite common occurrence on your style of washer.
I wouldn't rule out debris in the drain pump as another possibility as well though, i.e. small stones, jewelry, etc. You may want to rule out that possibility before throwing money at a pulley & thrust bearing kit ( it is actually a "transmission pulley kit" which comes with a new thrust bearing as well ). part # 12002213 and retails for about $40-$50 see photo's below.
Hope that answer's your question. Let me know if I can assist you further and thank's for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiry. Please take a second and rate this info I provided for you here.
