Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Why Electrolux front load making knocking sounds during spin cycle. Model ewf1087


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux washer, model# EWF1087, is making knocking sounds during the spin cycle. In researching your model number, I show that your appliance was manufactured in Australia. If this were manufactured in the U.S., I would suggest making sure that the load was balanced. Balance your wash load and if you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting the manufacturer in Australia. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Maytag pav2300aww wont spin


Does it agitate for the wash cycle?
When you get to the spin cycle, is the motor running and 3 pulleys underneath turning, and the tub is not turning?

If so, I had this issue with this model. The brake would not release, and I had to "persuade" it. Also, I had to set the plastic cam correctly on the bottom of the unit to that is would engage and release the brake at the proper points.

Did not need a bearing kit, just had adjust a few things that got knocked around by the movers. Only took me 6 frustrating hours. Hopefully take you less than 1. BEWARE the 200# force for the spring!

Cost $0. Mental anguish = still tabulating.

Clothes Washer stopped running. I have a Maytag PAV2300AWW clothes washer that was mistaken ran with a full load on the small load setting and stopped working mid cycle. Any help with the cause and


first check the house breaker and make sure you still have power. If it does then I would unplug the machine and lean it back against the wall to look at the motor wiring harness underneath to see if it came loose or is wet.

Grinding during the wash cycle


I was told that it was the transmission - good luck with that....

Labor alone was $175 - I ended up trashing mine (3 1/2 years old) and buying a new one.

Just got off the phone with Maytag - by all means, try to get them to pay for stuff before you throw away the one that you have....Now that they know it's gone, I supposedly don't even have the right serial number...(it was hauled away 4 days ago by Lowe's)

Maytag PAV2300AWW


hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.

Does not spin


Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.
