Re: pav2300aww spinning very slow,and not draining

In all these Cases it sounds like a faulty lip seal. These special seals have Sealed bearings inside. Water gets through the seal and into the bearing which causes it to thump (like a helicopter) or squeal very loudly. As far as draining, the machine has to reach a curtain speed before the pump can turn fast enough to work.

My maytag pav2300aww will not spin at all yet it agitates and drains well I was told to clean the agitator so I took it off yet the washer still don't spin the switch look wore out to me so I by-passe

Check the water level sensor and the lid safety interlock. Many washers will work fine with the lid open EXCEPT during the spin cycle, so this is the first logical place to look. Try bypassing the lid safety interlock switch.

Maytag Performa pav2300aww stops and starts

If it's stopping during a wash cycle, suspect the heater elemant not heating up and moving the controller on. See if it runs fine during a spin/drain cycle. If it is very slow on all programs, try the noise filter capacitor before condemning the controller.

The spine cycle seem slow need to run more then once

check the tub to pump and pump to drain for blockages of debris,the pump should drain the bulk of the water,then it should spin out the rest unless the belt is that glazed,get to the spin cycle and pull out the washer drain hose out of the house drain stand pipe and see how much force water is while being pumped out while just pumping and not spinning,there should be the water stream the size of the inside of the drain hose and good velocity of water flow to the drain

Not spining out good. Looks like its spining slow

Make certain that the spin speed is where you want it (e.g.: high spin). Also, make certain that you aren't overloading the washer. A heavier load will slow down the spin.

You may have a worn drive belt (loss its tension on the pulley). Contact an appliance service company.

GE washer not spine

First thing you can due is to manually move the time to drain and spin mode. This will check your timer to see if your timer is working. If it start working then it is your timer. It will be your timer gone bad.

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