SOURCE: My Maytag PAV2300AWW Performa is noisy on spin cycle

If you are talking about a loud sqeaking noise, this is usually attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is to get rid of most noise related problems (this will be the bottom round plate where it meets the casing of the machine). However, if the snubber is worn too much, or if the brake assembly is worn they must be replaced. I would recommend replacing the following parts:

Brake Stator: 1057484 Price: $7.45
Brake Rotor and Lining: 1032674 Price: $16.70
Snubber: 1055142 Price: $4.35
Brake Removal Kit: 997909 Price: $99.40*

*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.

You can find all your parts and information at repairclinic.com. I am not affiliated with the website. I am merely recommending them because I have used their service before. Plus, they use the same repair parts as your major appliance repair companies, but at a lower cost.

The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it IS. Also, if you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommended to the average do-it-yourselfer. Maytag is real good abpout providing the necessary instructions with their parts, but this is a bit involved.

Post back with comments and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: maytag performa PAV2300AWW will not spin but sounds like it is.

I think you have guessed it right. There is probably something stuck between the tubs. I have seen this caused by a lot of things. You should look for things as small as coins, shirt buttons, cufflinks etc., Also I advice you not to turn on the machine until the blockage is removed.

Good Luck,
Sai.

SOURCE: Grinding sound during agitation cycle on my Maytag Performa

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.

SOURCE: Spin Cycle is slow

new belt or there is a thrust bearing above the drive pulley that wears out.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I looked at the belt and it looked loose. While running it I pulled the motor to tighten the slack but it didn't speed up. Could the belt still be bad? Are you referring to a bearing on the main spindle shaft? Or along the belt track? Thanks, David"

Machine goes out of balance & vibrates on spin cycle


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.

Maytag washer model PAV2300AWW does not spin the clothes adequately and vibrates Is it the belt or Snubber?


Might just be a belt which is real easy to replace, no tools needed:

Take that belt off there and check the stiffness of the pump.
These will lock up or get stiff without even leaking.
If that pump seems fine check to see if the main drive pulley is properly releasing the tub in the direction of spin. Their are 2 marks on the pulley, the drum should release in between the two points. if not then the thrust bearing kit needs to be replaced.

I have a pictorial of that and a service manual HERE

Washing machine balance is off since we moved it.


There are tension springs attached to the tub. They are for the balancing upon spinning. Check and see if one came loose

Tub gets easily out of balance when washing towels or jeans.It pounds enough it walks across the floor


there are three or four balancing springs under the drum attached to the frame and drum carriage chances are that one of these springs has broken or come undone they only realy do alot during the spin cycle if you are ambitious turn off the water and unplug the washer pull the back off and have a look see underneath if you do find a broken spring with a pair of pliers bend a new loop in the spring and hook it back up Good Luck

Washer making loud noise. Shuts off, not draining.


It appears that you have an imbalanced load, or a nearly balanced load with a machine that easily goes off balance during spin. I would suggest:
1. After the unit trips on imbalance and stops spinning, open the lid and redistribute the laundry load inside to balance its weight equally around the interior of the drum. Note that cotton fabrics hold much more water than synthetics, and this has resulted in imbalanced loads even though they visually appear to be balanced. Close lid to restart spin.
2. Remove the front panel and check both tensioning/centering springs on the sides of the tub. A loose spring could easily cause the machine to go off balance.
3. Finally, check the main bearng play by holding the drum steady and moving the top of the agitator spindle horizontally toward the rim of the tub. Any excessive play is a clear indicator that bearing is excessively worn and may be resulting in an unbalanced load.

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.
