Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Pressure switch? Have maytag performa PAV2300AWW washer. replaced the H2O pump and didn't solve problem of water draining out. No hoses clogged, not even a little. Have been able to solve problem for last 4 months by hitting the switch for load level (reset?). Last night the washer didn't drain,. and this hasn't fixed problem. Nothing blocked and H2O pump seems to be working properly. Is this a load level switch problem or a water intake switch problem and easiest solution?

Sounds like you are having a syphoning issue. caused by having the drain hose too far down the home standpipe. very common problem. test..fill the machine, high water level. when it stops filling turn off. advance into spin/drain for just a moment and shut off. listen to hear water still going down the drain.
repair.. raise the drain hose nearer the top of the stand pipe. also do not tape/seal the hose into standpipe. it has to breath. good luck. kihm washing machine drain hose installation Google Search

SOURCE: Maytag Performa washer won't drain

there may be a object in one of the hoses going to and from the pump. be sure have you taken the front panel off yet??? If not it has two clips on the bottom on the two sides than the panels swings towards you to unhinge from top. The pump has a clear body and you can visually see an obstruction. Sometimes i find that a metal object coin, etc can actually chew the fins off the impeller. That would be the only reason for it not to pump anymore. Also release the tension on the belt. Maytag wants some slack for the motor to slide on the motor plate proper.

SOURCE: water left pooled inside maytag neptune front loading washer

Possible explanation: Some water is left in the hose going up to the drainpipe b/c the pump can only pump water with water, not air... so when the last bit of water is sucked up, it 'stays' just the other side of the pump exit nozzle and keeps the drain tubefilled. This water gradually leaks thru the drain exit valve and back into the machine, sometimes siphoning standing water in the drain trap with it.

The valve is either electric solenoid or plastic/rubber clapper in a cylinder. Your call whether to fix or not depending on ease and cost. Probably a $20.00 part.

Cheers!

It wont work it flashes fl


the Fl code indicates an overfill condition. If the washer is empty, then you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch. If the washer is full of water and will not drain, you likely have a problem with the drain pump or the washer drain line.

If the washer is full of water, make sure that the washer drain is clear and working properly. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. If you find no problems with these issues, I recommend that you manually drain the washer using a wet/dry shop vacuum. Check the drain pump and connecting hoses for problems. You may need to replace the drain pump of water will drain out of the washer properly but the pump will not work properly. A clog in the check ball assembly at the bottom of the tub can also prevent the washer from draining properly.

My washer fills with water and keeps filling doesn't stop on the selected water level for the load. It doesn't wash because the water keeps filling. What's wrong with my washer? Help please (Maytag...


The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

Maytag PAV2300AWW Washer makes grinding sound when agitating


Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.

My washer wont drain


The washer's pump unit has stopped working. It may not me getting the signal to pump after the wash cycle (controller problem) or the pump has let go and needs to be replaced.

Maytag washer overfilling


Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

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.
