Question about Maytag Performa PAV3200
On Matag top loaders the motor runs in one direction to agitate and reverses to spin. The timer controls the direction.
Also, the water level switch must be tripped (satified that there is water at the proper level) to agitate, it will allways spin no matter what the water level is as long as you set the timer to spin.

It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Hi the problem will be the belt has become streched dont keep trying to use the machine as this will cause the motor to fail usually it is the back of the machine that will need to come off once this is off you will see how the belt comes off it is really easy to do and most people who can use spanners can do this with no problem.
I would say it is the back that comes off the best thing to do is take the belt off and take it to repair shop so they can order you the correct belt.
Make sure you get the correct make and model number as their are several different belts for this make of washer.
Let me know if you need anymore help ill be glad to help
