Maytag pav2300aww wont spin


Does it agitate for the wash cycle?
When you get to the spin cycle, is the motor running and 3 pulleys underneath turning, and the tub is not turning?

If so, I had this issue with this model. The brake would not release, and I had to "persuade" it. Also, I had to set the plastic cam correctly on the bottom of the unit to that is would engage and release the brake at the proper points.

Did not need a bearing kit, just had adjust a few things that got knocked around by the movers. Only took me 6 frustrating hours. Hopefully take you less than 1. BEWARE the 200# force for the spring!

Cost $0. Mental anguish = still tabulating.

Clothes Washer stopped running. I have a Maytag PAV2300AWW clothes washer that was mistaken ran with a full load on the small load setting and stopped working mid cycle. Any help with the cause and


first check the house breaker and make sure you still have power. If it does then I would unplug the machine and lean it back against the wall to look at the motor wiring harness underneath to see if it came loose or is wet.

Wont drain. It looks like the pulley that is at the bottom of the pump assembly fell off (the belt came off as well). Can this be re-attached? I didn't find any screw near where the pulley fell.


The pump does not have a belt driven pulley.
The motor and transmission both have pulleys. My guess it's from the transmission

Check out the diagram labeled TRANSMISSION and look at the parts listed below it.
You can order a complete bearing and pulley kits from Sears:

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.

Replace belt, clean large pulley first with household cleaner-409 or greased lightning (pulley is made of plastic).

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.
