Question about Maytag PAV3240A Top Load Washer
This problem can be an easy fix......... First, turn the Hot and Cold Water Valves Off that go to the washer. There are screens in the hoses and screens in the Water Connection Valve on the Machine and these can become clogged with residue and debris from the water over a period of time. Using a pair of channel locks, small pipe wrench, or pliers, unscrew the hoses from the Supply Valve and the Washer. If they are rusty, you should use WD40 to help loosen the rust. After removing the hoses, inspect the ends to see if the screens are clogged. Consider the condition and age of the hoses in this inspection. If the hoses look bad and were hard to remove, it is best to replace them. Take a flashlight and look into the back off the washer where the hoses connect. There should be screens in the holes. Clean these and replace old or new hoses. Sometimes you must remove the cover plate where the hoses go into the machine and replace the water valve switch. To do this, turn off both water supply lines and remove the hoses. Unplug the washer from the outlet. Now you can remove the water inlet part to the washer. You must take this part to a Dealer and get one from them. They are not usually hard to remove and replace, Thus saving you a service call......But hopefully it is just clogged or old hoses. Hope this helps with your problem........Joe

First check the screens inside the hoses to make sure they are not clogged. Next trouble could be the inlet valve where the hoses connect then the lid switch. Hope that helps.
