Can't find where the clutch goes on a Maytag Performa PAV 3300, is it in the transmission?


This washer is a single belt driven model that uses a thrust washer system to release the brake when the motor reverses. In wash mode a 200# spring locks the tub place while the transmission agitates the clothes. The pump cannot remove the water in this direction. In spin mode the the brake is released and the water gets pumped out. Here is a great pictorial that shows how to replace the kit along with a Maytag single belt washer service manual.

I hear the belt floping around in my front loader washier,how do i fix it??


Get the service panel off. Then remove 4 large bolts and the washer motor and pump will come out. Put that on a work table and remove the pump.
Then you can replace the belt.97a7db3.jpg

I have the MAYTAG top loader washer, Model #MAV6451AWW, it will not spin in the rinse cycle, how to fix / take apart?


Usually when this unit washes but will not spin the thrust bearing kit is damaged.This is easy to repair with little cost.
Completly empty the unit, clothes and water ,unplug the power cord, lie the unit on its back, remove the belt,the c clip from the pully. Take the thrust bearing,the pully the washers off the unit . Grease the new bearing and install new parts. I would also replaced the belt.

Grease blobs appear in wash, Maytag washer A211. How do I fix?


Searched for the model on the web and didn't find it. I am assuming that it is an older top load model. Front loaders I don't know about.

Is the grease appearing just in the drum or is there some on the floor underneath. Either way I would say you need to replace the transmission. If you have an old 12-15 yrs washer I would get a new one. The replacement trannys only last a couple of years at best and aren't worth the money to replace $200-300 if your machine is ready to **** out. The only places on a washer that have grease are the clothes you're washing and the transmission. The tranny will mostly leak onto the floor but can sometimes get into the drum.

I have a maytag top loader washer and when it is on the spin cycle the whole drum shakes hitting the walls of the washer


Without having the model number, it is difficult to diagnose.

Most Maytag / Whirlpool top loaders use a set of balance springs and friction pads to buffer the shaking.

Here is a Whirlpool site with a number of PDF files on their products including troubleshooting sections.

Find your washer under laundry products and open the PDF, it will probably take a few minutes to load.

I have Maytag Model#PAV1000AWW which is a Top Loader.At this time the washer makes sounds in the spin cycle,but does not spin or drain the water.HELP!!!!!


  • it sounds like it could be a bad belt. tilt the machine over and look at the very bottom, you will see the belts. they are spring loaded and can be changed without any tools.

  • or you may need a transmission pulley and bearing repair kit ($30). this will fix the center pulley (spinning problem, not he draining issue) if it is stripped out. as you will see, the center pulley is made of plastic and does have frequent problems. but the good thing is that the parts are cheap and easy to change.
