Washer won't spin!

I believe there is a silver chain necklace stuck in my washer and now it won't spin. Is it worth fixing? I have the Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW..I bought it in 2005.

    Our Maytag PAV2300Aww Rev 12 works except it will not spin. I cannot turn the tub with my hand while the machine is in the spin cycle. What do you think is wrong with our washing machine?

I doubt if that would affect it unless you got the chain between the inner and outer tub. The pump might have a coin in it. Tip the washer back,remove the belt and turn the pump by hand to see if it is locked up.

    Ain't nothing to do but remove the 3 screws holding down the pump(3/8ths hex) and remove the 2 hoses. Remove that pump and put another one in there Kimosabe.

    How come you give me on 3 stars? That pump by the way can be bought generic for 30 bucks online.

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

I believe there is a silver chain necklace stuck in the motor and now the machine won't spin! Is it worth fixing??? How much do you think it would cost for the maytag repairman to fix? Approximate is...


i would say it would defantly be worth looking at if it just something stuk in the pump or motor and no parts are needed it would be worth the repair if it needs a part the repair man should let you know how much the part is and you can compair that to the price of a new machine they start around 300 -350 a service call have the machine checked could run between 50 - 100 don't know what people charch where you are

Necklace stuck in washer


Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.
