    Pump works fine. The motor is mounted so it moves.

    this allows the tension on the belt to vary. Is that correct?

  • moetil Feb 25, 2009

    Yes, it washes the clothes fine. How do you tighten the belt?

    The motor moves in the slots where they are mounted and that

    tightens the belt but I can't get it the stay.

    Thank you so much. I really don't want to have a service call

    if ther is a way I can repair it.

    Is the transmission on the Maytag PAV2300 easily repaired? I'm having the same problem. My washer drains, but will not spin. Tub can be manually turned, but not with ease.

It also makes a noise like there is something between the tub and the outer casing.

Maytag washer model PAV2300AWW does not spin the clothes adequately and vibrates Is it the belt or Snubber?


Might just be a belt which is real easy to replace, no tools needed:

Take that belt off there and check the stiffness of the pump.
These will lock up or get stiff without even leaking.
If that pump seems fine check to see if the main drive pulley is properly releasing the tub in the direction of spin. Their are 2 marks on the pulley, the drum should release in between the two points. if not then the thrust bearing kit needs to be replaced.

I have a pictorial of that and a service manual HERE

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 performa PAV2300AWW will not spin but sounds like it is.


I think you have guessed it right. There is probably something stuck between the tubs. I have seen this caused by a lot of things. You should look for things as small as coins, shirt buttons, cufflinks etc., Also I advice you not to turn on the machine until the blockage is removed.

Good Luck,
Sai.

THE WASHER IS NOT SPINNED THE WATER OUT


Check the belt, the pump, and the thrust washer.The thrust washer wears down and won't release the tub. All these symptoms are easily repaired with minimal tools.

Washer belt is loose, & seem to slip at start of spin cycle.


there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?
