I have a Maytag Performa top loader that won't stay in balance

I have a Maytag Performa top loader that I replaced the water pump on, when the bearing went out. Now I am having problems getting it to stay in balance. It is level and I have adjusted the motor housing. So what else could it be?

Our Maytag PAV2300AWW Performa top load washer fills with water fine, draisn fine, spins fine, but after filling with water (even on "Mini" size load) it begins to agitate and then quits completely and...


If it was the bearing it should be leaking water out the bottom! It is more than likely the water pump. The seal in the pump drops down and then makes noise. The pump should be in rear. tilt machine back remove belt then try turning the pump by hand if tight replace.
List price is about $89.99 you can find it on Ebay cheaper

I have a Maytag Performa Top Loader PAV2200AWW it will not spin. Previously made a loud noise. Should I repair or invest in a new one?


This is a simple fix. All you need is the transmission pulley and bearing.
Here is a link to the kit you need. It is under $50.00 and should only take less then 30 minuets to fix. Also, I included a video to walk you thru the process.

My Maytag Performa has an odor problem. Please let me know how to remediate the odor. Thnanks for your help.


Odors usually come from bacteria . Assuming that is what is causeing it look fro some washing machine cleaner. The newer style front loaders have a water door seal that the bacteria can collect in and this may be your trouble. the gasket folds down some for cleaning. Ask any appliance sales person for conformation on this and how to clean - service the gasket. It its is a top loader same thing can happen but no seal to deal with that you can reach. Use a washing m,achine cleaner in it as well.

If it is comming from your water a chet with a water treatment person is what you need. Culligan or others are what I recomend.

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can, thenk you for using fix ya. .

Leaks water on floor and spin cycle very loud


if it sounds like a boeing jet, you will need a new seal & bearing kit. This is something a technician would have to do. many "special" spanner wrenches and spring tools required

Whirlpool is good but Speed Queen is the best with the best warranty in the industry!
Tested to wash 8 loads a week for 25 years!
3 years parts and labor compared to all others with only 1 year! And 10 years for the transmission not 1 year like all the rest!
only 34 gallons of water used in the top loader and 13.9 gallons in the front loader.
I'm 53 and I'm not buying another washer again!
YES I SELL THEM AND EVERYONE WORKING IN MY STORE HAS ONE! There are plenty of more features!
Speed queen is used in laundry mats all over the world!

So now that I reallllly saved you, GIVE ME THE BEST RATING SCORE HERE AT FIXYA!!
