I had the same problem in October 2007. I had a significant amount of water damage to carpet in another room and the draywall ceiling in my finished basement. The Maytag authorized repeair guy showed me that the drain hose is too short and prone to pulling loose. He replaced it and the repair worked until today, when it failed again. I have a lot of water and I am leaving town in the morning. Maytag (now Whirlpool) denies there is any recall on the product and they are refusing any liability. My guess is that the authorized repair guy is correct, that there IS a flaw that they are denying. They have left me no recourse other than to hire the same repair twice as well as the cleanup. Email me if you share my concern that they need to admit the problem and stand behind their product. sieggy01@gmail.com

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW washer makes a squealing sound


i am sorry but i had this problem happen before with my customer maytag performa, what i found out is that the brakes become crystallized, causeing a squeaking noise, remember in agitation, the brakes stops the the drum from spinning, what i advise you to do is change out the breaks or take the brake pads and rub them with sand paper

thanks

Grinding sound during agitation cycle on my Maytag Performa


Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Sounds like the water pump is going out on it. The part runs about $80 and should only take about 45 minutes to install.

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW noise in wash cycle no agitation. Belt is not broken but in the wash cycle there is no agitation only a bad bearing sound.


Your main tub bearings need replacing at least a 200.00 repair. The parts alone are about 80.00 and a few hours labor.

Your Belt still needs replacing or to be scuffed up with sand paper. If thes fails you need either new tub bearings or a transmission. either a 250-300.00 repair so tr the belt and rotate drain pump rotation while the belt is off

My PAVT920AWW won't spin hard enough to get all the water out


I have had teh same problem. I calledin the Maytag service and they did replace something out of goodwill but the technician told me that the load balance sensor is sensitive. If your load is unbalanced then the machine will spin slowly so it does not walk across the floor. With larger loads the wieght will make the machine bang against the sides and walk.

The solution is quite simple. Make sure the load is balanced. The agitator has a way of unbalancing a load from time to time so you need to do this manually. It is a very rare occurance and it is best to make sure your load goes into the machine balanced first.
