Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Maytag Performa washer, even though it is level, the tub always leans to the right causing a racket especially with jeans and / or sweats (heavy items) but even with light well balanced loads the tub always wants to go to the right.

Maytag performa washer during spin cycle tub is making loud banging noise and continues even when clothes are evenly distributed


This sounds like the transmission is going. Better get another washing machine other than a Performa.

Maytag Performa washer stopped mid cycle


It will not be either , after emptying tub lean the unit back so you can see under it , remove the belt and turn each pulley/wheel with your hand , the pump is norm. on rear right corner and is usually the problem it will be hard to turn if bad , the pump is an easy fix, the pulley that is stuck is the component that is bad if not the pump. the large tub pulley should turn both ways with some effort , if not it could be the gear case causing this. Let me know if you have any questions.

Maytag washer overfilling


Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

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 water level


Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Spin cycle


The washer needs to be leveled with a level first.If it is level than the clothes should float evenly in water.Not level everything floats to the un even side and they will bunch up.

My washer just keeps trying to fill


check the height of the drain hose. if you aren't seeing a leak on the floor the drain hose might be below the height of the tub. the water always seeks the lowest level and if the hose is too low the water wwill run right out
