Question about Maytag Washing Machines
I have a Magtag PAV2300. When it is in the spin cycle the tub goes off balance and has a knocking sound. What can I do about this. I have a 22 year old Maytag washing machine that has worked wonderfully well for 20 years. The last 2 years it has developed a knocking sound during the spin cycle and sometimes it will not spin at the full speed.
The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.
