It sounds like a spn down noise. I would check to see if the brake spring was changed when the brake and stator was. They had some problems with weak springs.

My maytag performa pav 2300 is making a loud noise while its spinning. Sounds like metal on metal. Its working fine. Its just that noise. We just got a new motor yesterday. What could be the problem ?...


Hello
On this model washer the noise is most likely caused by a worn washer tub seal assembly. remove agitator (nut on the top under cap), spin basket and tub assembly. remove seal and install new one.

I have a Maytag Performa PAV 2300 Washing Machine. Recently, clothes are still wet after spinning in the delicate cycle. This is not an issue in the Regular cycle. For now, I'm re-spinning the delicates in...


The belt is real easy to replace. Tip the washer back and yank the old belt off.
Loop the new one over the 2 small pulleys and then ease the belt over the large pulley.themobilian_2154.jpg

Maytag Performa PAV2200 makes a rumbling sound while agetating. Suspect a worn bearing or belt? Could you shed any light on this?


Yes it could be the spin bearing at the base on top of the brake assembly. I would suspect that the brake assembly is the cause of the noise as this engaged when you the washer agitates. If it was the bearing it would make a loud noise in the spin cycle, too.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK

Very loud squealing noise in spinn.


If your Maytag is a top loader equipped with a vertical transmission under the tub, the squealing may be coming from, either the brake assembly, or the snubber which the entire pedestal rides on.  Could you please post back comments and let me know if this is the type of washer you have?
