Question about Maytag Performa PAV3200

1 Answer

My maytag performa PAV2300 stopped in mid cycle and I smelled something burning. Had the repair person out and he said it's the belt and the plastic top that houses the motor. He said that the entire motor needs to be replaced as you can take the plastic off. Is this true? His charge to replace the motor and belt is $200.00

Maytag Performa, Noisey spin cycle, now does not work


the belt may be old and stretched/slipping...if it is stretched and slipping it will cause the squealing .............otherwise, check the pulley for the belt/motor to see if it is okay and the motor itself copuld be worn out if the belt looks ok............be careful, you can get zapped if you touch a wire and also if the motor is burned up it can cause a fire so watch carefully and you should be able to see which of these possibilities are the problem..............

Maytag washer sounds like a jackhammer when rinsing - this is a new thing with all loads. Yesterday it shut down mid cycle while still full of water and we smelled a burning rubber smell. Any ideas?


There is only one belt on the machine (the burning rubber smell, probably). Sounds like something is wrong with the clutch /drive mechanism. Unless your an accomplished DIY'er, it sounds like a job for the Maytag Man.
Sorry.........................

Maytag Performa washer stopped mid cycle


It will not be either , after emptying tub lean the unit back so you can see under it , remove the belt and turn each pulley/wheel with your hand , the pump is norm. on rear right corner and is usually the problem it will be hard to turn if bad , the pump is an easy fix, the pulley that is stuck is the component that is bad if not the pump. the large tub pulley should turn both ways with some effort , if not it could be the gear case causing this. Let me know if you have any questions.

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW noise in wash cycle no agitation. Belt is not broken but in the wash cycle there is no agitation only a bad bearing sound.


Your main tub bearings need replacing at least a 200.00 repair. The parts alone are about 80.00 and a few hours labor.
