Question about Maytag PAV3240A Top Load Washer
I'm trying to determine if it's cost effective to fix. When in agitator cycle, the motor is loud and eventually overheats and cuts off.. After it cools off, I can put it in spin cycle to drain the water. Replacing the belt had no effect.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dryer-Parts/index.aspx Take a look at what a new motor costs for your machine and go from there. Is may not be a motor is could be a belt or a bearing. I rebiult a washer for less then 50 dollars that one did not need a motor just bearings and a belt. I would take the washer apart so you can get an idea of what went wrong and then look at parts to repair it and decide what to do good luck

Your drive motor may be fine. Check the water pump that is located in the back behind the small metal door on the left bottom corner and see if thats where your noise/water is coming from. These extraction pumps have bearings casing that gets mangled and locked up. Look right above the flywheel that the belt rides on in the W-pump.

Hi, The most common problem is the thrust bearing kit. The thrust bearing is located on the lower shaft of the transmission. The kit includes a new pulley and hardware. The part #12002213 also includes instructions.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.
