SOURCE: Maytag SAV washer leaking all over floor

I have the exact same washer with the exact same problem. I have a home warranty that covers appliances so when they sent out the Sears technician, he took a list of parts and replaced about 9 things for a grand total of $450. If I didn't have a home warranty that only charged me $55 to do it, I would have just bought another non-Maytag washer.

SOURCE: clothes come out very wet.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This sounds very much like the motor is failing or the belt is slipping. Motors- and belts, which is sensible to change at the same time- are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts, normally 2, should be loosened and the belt removed then remove the bolts completely
With the motor it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished. Refurbishing includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit firmly on the commutator but straddle it- the centre is often more worn than the outer part.
Unfortunately motors are not cheap- the motor for our 18+ yearold Bosch cost GBP250 but it will probably outlive us! It's your choice obviously.
Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

Maytag mavt236aww works on delicate but not on normal. when in normal position the washer will fill up, but will not agitate or spin out or drain


Possible that the controller unit is a suspect.Check the INLET flow , check the INLET valve, Check if water fills, If not there are errors in the program output and the controller could have memory issues.

My Maytag top load washer model # mavt236aww seems to stick on the rinse cycle. along with that the cold water does not shut off, it continues to fill the drum and overflows. Please help.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer will not spin. Does fill and agitate.


Any error code associated with fail to Spin?

Is this a FAV6800A LED console model or a FAV9800A LCD console model?

Like one of these?
