The pulley and bearing are not removable on your pump. it is replaced as a complete pump assembly.

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

Maytag washer model PAV2300AWW does not spin the clothes adequately and vibrates Is it the belt or Snubber?


Might just be a belt which is real easy to replace, no tools needed:

Take that belt off there and check the stiffness of the pump.
These will lock up or get stiff without even leaking.
If that pump seems fine check to see if the main drive pulley is properly releasing the tub in the direction of spin. Their are 2 marks on the pulley, the drum should release in between the two points. if not then the thrust bearing kit needs to be replaced.

I have a pictorial of that and a service manual HERE

Wont drain. It looks like the pulley that is at the bottom of the pump assembly fell off (the belt came off as well). Can this be re-attached? I didn't find any screw near where the pulley fell.


The pump does not have a belt driven pulley.
The motor and transmission both have pulleys. My guess it's from the transmission

Check out the diagram labeled TRANSMISSION and look at the parts listed below it.
You can order a complete bearing and pulley kits from Sears:

Maytag PAV2300AWW Washer makes grinding sound when agitating


Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.

Maytag washer pav2300aww noises in spin


I AM NOT A MECHANIC, BUT I CAN TELL BY READING YOUR PROBLEM IS THAT YOU NEED A NEW PUMP. IF IT ISN'T YOUR BELT, THEN YOU MAY NEED TO BUY A NEW PUMP. CALL AROUND AND ASK HOW MUCH THEY ARE. GOOD LUCK. HOW OLD IS YOUR WASHER?

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

How do you know if your belt is not functioning properly? During the wash and spin cycles the machine makes an outrageous noise. The washing machine is 7 years old, a Maytag Performa, Top Loader, Model #...


  • tilt the machine over and look at the bottom. the belt is there.
  • it will feel loose but that is normal. it is spring tensioned.
  • the noise is probably coming from the water pump, when they are bad they make a loud noise.
  •  turn the pulley around a couple times to see where the noise is coming from.

Your Thrust bearing on the bottom of the transmission is not releaseing the break. try turning the pulley with the belt off in the opposite direction this should free up your break. If it doesn't replace your brake ststor and rotor as well as your thrust bearing. This should solve your problem. Roger
