Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

1 Answer

Spin Cycle I have a Maytag PAVT244AWW. I started a wash and it filled up and then started to agitate then I noticed it stopped and it was smoking. It is only about 2.5 yrs. old. I emptied it and then put it in the spin cycle to see if it would. It did, but when I opened the lid it stopped immediately instead of slowing down and then stopping. It also made a breaking noise when it stopped abruptly. What is up? Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Charlie

Re: Spin Cycle

The tub will come to a very quick stop when there is nothing in the machine. The breaking noise is the nylon break pads in the break assembly. This noise can be stopped by putting talcum powder into the break assembly. As far as the machine stopping and smoking ? I suspect a stuck/partially stuck break causing the belt to slip and heat up.

Why won't my Maytag Brazos top loader washer, model mvwx600xw1 agitate or spin? Also, the lid lock light blinks once in awhile. Checked lid lock, still no spinning

my first suspicion is in the door lock switch if it goes bad u have no action in wash or spin, next I would first check the water pressure switch as it is the unit that sends the signal to the machine to start wash cycle? if the diaphram does not detect the proper level of pressure due to water level. it will just keep filling and overflow and never start wash cycle. als0 check the water inlet valve, lastly a bad clutch will not allow much in the way of a spin cycle but would not effect the wash cycle? a bad motor coupler on the other hand stops both wash and spin?

Maytag washer tub will not spin.

There is a clutch assembly under the tub that controls the tub and the agitator. It sounds like the problem is with that.
