Have you removed the 4 long anchor screws from the back of the washer? These are used to secure the drum in place for shipping.
I have heard of a few cases that these screws were not taken out and the washer "danced" all over the laundryroom....

It sounds like there isn't actually anything wrong with the washer. Some washers will sense when they are out of balance and stop but newer washers just keep going and will scoot themselves across the floor. You have two options: when you notice this happening, stop the washer and redistribute the load. The other option is to create a barrier around the washer so it can't scoot. I believe they sell trays that you can set washer in for this purpose

Can't find where the clutch goes on a Maytag Performa PAV 3300, is it in the transmission?


This washer is a single belt driven model that uses a thrust washer system to release the brake when the motor reverses. In wash mode a 200# spring locks the tub place while the transmission agitates the clothes. The pump cannot remove the water in this direction. In spin mode the the brake is released and the water gets pumped out. Here is a great pictorial that shows how to replace the kit along with a Maytag single belt washer service manual.

Performa washing machine not spinning


you will most probably find that the inside of the belt that runs on the pulley has been breaking away bit by bit and if the pulley stops where there is a bit missing it may not turn when the pulley starts to turn.
Just a thought as it has happened to me a few times
The odor is most probably burning rubber as the pulley spins on the belt

You could replace the snubber ring and springs,, if you love the machine, and make sure no grease is leaking. It's a lot of labor. These are not the real Maytags of the past.

Maytag performa series washer


I purchased a Maytag Performa washer in 2003 and experienced the same thing. A service call found a loose electrical connection behind the switch panel. The washer has worked fine since.
Hope this helps.

Hi Folks,

I'm guessing both of these problems are related to the belt slipping. There are several points to check.
  1. the belt tension. I'm not familiar with the exact details of your machines, but the usually have a an extra pulley with a spring attached to give the belt tension. Alternatively, the motor is mounted on a movable frame that is held by some springs. These springs give the belt tension. In either case check the freedom of movement of the tensioning arrangement and the springs are providing the necessary tension to the belt.
  2. Glazed belt/pulley - if the belt has been slipping it will polish the pulleys and this will reduce the friction necessary to drive the machine. To fix this the belt should be replaced and the pulley surfaces roughed up with some wet/dry emery paper (not too rough or it will wear your new belt out).
  3. Belt is too old - the rubber becomes hard and brittle and ends up with the same effect as Glazed belt/pulley above. The fix is as per 2 above.
Good luck
