Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

Washer stopped. won't do anthing.

My washer started to make a sqeelling noise. Then stopped. It would not drain or do any thing. I emptied it and checked the belt. When it would turn it on any cycle, the motor would turn on and the motor pulley would turn but the belt and the other two pulleys would not turn and a a couple of seconds later the motor would turn off. I believe the power to the machine is suffecient.

Duets washer won't drain

Probably a blocked filter, outlet pipe or pump.
Take the drain hose and lay it flat and lower then the level of the drum and this will drain the machine providing the blockage is not solid. When machine is empty check filter , pipes and pump and remove any blockage found.
Replace drain hose and you should then be able to carry on with your wash or spin the clothes.

I have a whirlpool ultimate care II washer. It stopped in the middle of a load, full of water, and now it won't do anything. It won't drain, fill, move, or make any noises.

You will need to check the capacitor on the machine. It can be tested with a capacitance meter the easiest. It can be tested with a resistance meter, but this will tell you if the capacitor is shorted or open. It will not tell you the capacitive value if the component has drifted out of tolerance. You put the meter across the terminals and watch the display for counting up to infinity. This will occur quickly and disappear very quickly. Now reverse the leads on the terminals, (reverse the polarity). The same thing should happen, but a bit more pronounced. It will once again rise very quickly and go to an infinite reading. This tells you that the capacitor isn't shorted or open internally. Here is the capacitor to order if you should find it bad.

When tub drains beeps twice and won't continue

Hi - Does the drain pump make a humming noise as well? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if what pump out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to diagnose either the pump or timer.

My Kenmore H2t front load washer won't drain and

Hallo there
So it will not do what it is told. This happened to my Candy machine the other day. It was finished and I opened the door, out came water and I got 5 towels on the floor to dry up the water. Closed the door again and put empty water on, it emptied the water, stopped the machine and put spin on and it made it.
My experience ,learned the hard way, to wait long enough after the machine stops as well as between changing programs.
I this will be of some use to you.

Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...

E20 is an error code for drainage failure.

Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.

You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

My washer fills with water on starting a load but then it does nothing won't start spining to empty water

If the machine loads ups with water and does not stop then the water level sensor is fautly . But if the inlet valve stops on fill up but there is no spin of the motor or thereafter there is no spin/rinse or drain then the program controller / drain valve/pump must be checked.

Making noise???

If it happens right away on the spin only setting, sounds to be something clogged in the pump....common things bra wires, hair pins, nails, screws..etc. Only way to access the pump is from the rear of the unit reaching through to te front....pain in the but to techs...I'd suggest if it makes the noise and drains slow to have a tech come out and fix your problem....but if you want an adventure unplug unit and empty the water, take the rear panel off and remove the hose from the tub(screw clamp) and reach inside with your fingures and see what you feel...may need to take hose completly off. reassemble and test with an empty load...fill with water and sure to check for leaks afterwards

Whirlpool Calypso stops at 26 minutes and throws ob code

The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control. You say this happens when the washer is empty also. One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.,wkktswgwqtqrbwfxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gftrgbbtfxfffgqskfk/1/1303472/5961857/image48348img-or.jpg

Top loaing washer fills then mostly empties repeatedly

Check you drain line. It may be too low or the air gap is blocked at the drain pipe.
A test is remove the drain pipe from the wall drain. Hold it up high and turn the washer on to fill.
If it fills and stops, then starts agitation. Repair the drain hose.
