Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Washer was working fine for several loads last night. I filled it this morning for a large load. Washer filled OK, but then did not "click on" for the agitation cycle. Red power light is on and I tried all cycles available (no luck), and tried unplugging/re-plugging power cord (no luck). Right now I just want to figure out how to get the water to drain out in case a repair is needed. Thanks.
If just getting the water out is your main goal, this can be accomplished using a shop vacuum.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting any repair! Another way to drain a machine is to use a bucket. Put the discharge end of the drain hose from the washer into the bucket, making sure the hose end is higher than the level of the water in the washer, and slowly lower the hose and bucket until the water flows into the bucket. Raise the bucket and hose end back up above the level in the machine tub to stop the flow. Repeat until the machine is empty.
Give the machine a try after removing some of the water as you may have tripped a limit switch and the unit may just be overfilled
