Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

About washer Hi, My daughters washing machine is a Maytag Performa and is about 9 years old. It is throwing grease through the little holes in the tub and runing her cloths. Does this sound like a major repair ? Hate to call a repairman if it is. Do you think she should just purchase a new one? Thank you. LDillon Lindymaureen@aol.com

    Dear sir/Madam:

    I have a Maytag Washing Machine is under 4 years old! It is very noisy when it spines, The Whirlpool people came and said that it needed to replace the transmission and bearing, the parts are under ten years warranty, but I have to pay for the labor charge which is $245.90 for two people for the first hour, $120 for the second hour, and they said it will take at lease 2 hours or more to do the job. I already paid $77.95 for inspection, and two hours labor will be $365.90, plus the inspection, total is $443.85 plus taxes, and may be more! The machine is under $499.00, and I have to pay over $443.95 for the warranty work? I don't think it is fair! I don't think this Maytag Warranty is Right!

    Could you clarify the repair cost?

    Thanks!

LDilion,
Grease usually means transmission problems, transmissions cost about $300 apeice, so you may well just be out of luck...

I need to know how a maytag performa pavt-1 washer drains. does it drain beneath the agitator or through the holes in the basket?


It drains through the holes in the plastic tub. You may hear a sloshing sound when you move the tub and this is normal. There is a solution sealed inside the tub on this unit to balance out the spin cycle.

Broken drain pipe under washer tub


Well,i wouldn't solder the old pipe back on.You could replace the pipe or replace the tub entirely.But you're looking at about the same price to repair an old machine for the price of buying a new one.techs come at about $50 per hour and you're looking at about an 8 hour day to repair it.a new machine should run you about $ 400 to $ 500.

Agitator noise in maytag performa machine


The noise in your washer tub could be caused by some object lodged under the agetator. Lift off agetator and check. Or somthing could have gotten into the sump tub. this could be a major job as you would have to remove the complete inner tub assy. One other problem I can think of it could be worn tub bearings. If the washer is 10 or 15 years old I would replace it,

Maytag Performa PAV2300 washer leaks


Hi hindsr

I dont know for sure what it is but i would guess that the tub is going off balance during the spin just befor the rinse and the tub is not centered. so what happens is watter hits the top of the tub and runs down the back (inside) and thats where the water is comming from.

Maytag Performa Washer


Hi brawn253

The oil is comming from the transmission. The only way to fix it is to have it replaced. alot of the orlder machiens have this happen and keep working for many years after. as for the squeal its normal. its just the break some of the oils have got in there and the squealing is a resault of that. I wouldnt be to worried about it.

I own a Maytag Performa 4 Speed/24 cycle Washing machine. it is 4 years old. Problem: A very LOUD grinding sound when washer engages into wash, rinse, spin cycles. The Tub does agitate - but I don't...


sounds like you have a tub seal problem, which took out the bearings, I take it one buzy mom does lots of laundry! Maybe time for a new washer.

Maytag Washer overflowwing


I had the same problem. My whole basement flooded. Inside the back (you can see it thru a small hole 1/2 way up on right) a small white hose connects to the water shut off collection area. This hose carries the water from the tub to the collection area and tells the machine to cut off for the size of load selected. Mine had come undone and so the machine could not sense it was full and the water poured all out the bottom. I simply removed the small gray panel at the bottom on the back and reached up inside to reconnect.
