Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
Would also like to know how to remove the fabric softner dispenser.
Slide the unit out from the wall and open the small access panel on the back, bottom left side. 98% of the noise problems from this model is do to the bad design on the drain pump which has since been redesigned and will need to be replaced. Here is the new pump.
This washer pump has been redesigned by the manufacture. The mounting plate is no longer required. It now mounts directly to the base of the washer.

SOURCE: Fabric Softner won't dispense
fabric softener goes into the dispenser. it may be a full blown solenoid valve -or- a flapper type of solenoid valve. operation of the solenoid operates a flapper to let the softener out. go to an appliance repair site to find the solenoid - appliance parts dot com or repair clinic dot com.

Dispenser wholes are probably clogged and all the softener is not dumping when it is supposed to!. Top loaders usually have a little cup like place to add the softener in the top of the agitator!
Those the Manuel tells you to rinse with water occasionally!
If you can't figure it out, call service and get it done and over!
You will feel better!!!

SOURCE: FABRIC SOFTNER DOES NOT DISPENCE
Check to make sure the litle cups are set in place correctly and also make sure they are not blocked with hard fabric softner. A quick test: pour water directly into the fabric sofnter cup and fill it up,IF it siphons out, you will need a new inlet valve for that unit. The inlet valve has soliniods on it for the bleach & fabric softner.

Liquid Softener was clogged up over time.
1-Put hot water in the place of the Softener slowly and let it over flow to dissolve the solidified liquid.
2-Keep doing this until you see water at the bottom of the tub.
3-Run a small load to clean out the gum.

Test mode? Do you mean Service Mode and you turn on the solenoid for the water valve to divert water to the Fabric dispenser reservoir and it is flushed in Service Mode?
See if this solution will help with your trouble shooting.
Let me know if I can help……Rich
