Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer will spin but won't drain automatically

I have a top load Maytag Performa PAVT454EWW that started acting funny the other day. It goes through the wash cycle but won't drain when it gets to the spin cycle. It spins but I have to lift and close the lid before the water will start draining. Any ideas as to what is causing this? I'm hoping this is just a small problem I can fix myself.

Are you sure it spins? usually something is in the pump like a sock. You could remove the front and take the hose off the pump to see if its clear. It also sounds like it could be the lid switch. if you have to close it make sure you hear a clicking noise from the lid switch.

Top load maytag performa washer won`t stop flling both on wash and rinse cycles.


The switch the tube connects to shuts the water off. Will it cut off on high medium or low level. You can try blowing on the tube to see if it works. It should cut off when you blow.

Maytag performa mod#pav2200aww leaking between rinse and spin cyc


My Performa started leaking from the Drain Pump rubber gasket. It had dryrotted. However, Maytag doesn't make a replacement O-ring gasket. You have to buy the whole new pump! Thanks Maytag.

Maytag Performa washer Waterlevel/agitator problem


CHECK your stand pipe hasn't fell over (the one the drain hose goes to when emptying)If not,Either the pressure switch is broke or there is a hole or split in the pressure switch rubber hose.This switch stops the water when it reaches required level.
