Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag washer (model PAVT244AWW). Won't spin. Don't know how old it is or its history, as it came with a home we purchased in October. Several times it's "walked" during the spin cycle. About 6 weeks ago, it started making intermittent screeching sounds during spin cycle...then those sounds stopped a couple of weeks ago. Now it's stopped spinning. Any idea what's wrong? We can handle small repairs, but don't feel comfortable taking apart the washer. Our options are: doing it ourselves if a minor repair, calling a repair person, or junking it and buying a new washer. Any recommendations/advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Its not the clutch. its the Thrust bearing.......comes in a kit for cheap..30 bucks shipping included and is a easy fix - Transmission pulley and bearing kit. This kit includes pulley, washer, thrust bearing, 2 upper race washers, 1 lower race washer, and instruction sheet.

    its not time for a new washer..its time to fix it and listen to someone who has had this problem b4 with the same make and model washer.....i bought mine on craigslist for 10 bucks and fixed it for 30 and sold it for 200.00

Check with the belt off that the bowl will turn freely, if not check drum bearings or something caught between inner & outer bowl. Make sure when you fit new belt it is adjusted to the right tension or it will slip & burn.

I have a maytag washer model# pavt244aww and it jumps all over the place while it is spinning. any ideas what the problem could be I cant seem to figure it out


There is a stabilizer bar that stretches across the back of the washer, and a pivot point in the right front corner. Both can be accessed through the back panel (tension bar) or top (pivot) of the washer.Look for one end of the tension bar having become disconnected, or the pivot point having become dislodged or broken.

Maytag washer will not agitate. model pavt244aww


TURN THE PULLEY ON THE BOTTOM. ONE DIRECTION WILL CAUSE THE PULLEY TO TRAVEL UP AND RELEASE THE BRAKE, CAUSING THE TUB TO SPIN. TURN IT THE OTHER WAY AND THAT SHOULD BE YOUR AGITATION. YOU SHOULD HEAR THE TRANSMISSION CLUNK AS THE GEARING CHANGES DIRECTION TO GE THE AGITATION ARC. IF NO NOISE IS HEARD, YOU HAVE AN INTERNAL PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSION.

Sounds like the motor is going bad. It will only get louder before it finally stops. There is a device that assists the agitation motion that may be bad or is going bad.

you don't say which model you have. one version uses two belts accesible by just tipping the machine back. Another version you must remove the front panel, and drop the pump and you'll be able to replace the one belt.
