SOURCE: Agitator not working on Maytag PAV2300

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the transmission in your unit is bad,it has internal gears and the ones involved in the agitation are broke or bad, to replace the transmision is a lengthy process, your best bet is to just scrap it and get a new washer. I don't know if you know this but maytag company is no longer in business. They were purchased by Whirlpool back in November of 2006. One of the reasons is all the poor quality of their appliances. I am a technician that has been doing this for 15 years. The best unit I have seen to date is the Whirlpool Duet. I hardly ever have to work on them. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps.

My LG Front Load washing machine is making a grinding noise on spin cycle I believe it is coming from the motor


Hello. The noise you are hearing on spin is a failed basket support bearing. Depending on the model, you are looking at a cost of a professional to repair it of around $400+. If you do it yourself, around $200. This is a common failure on LG washers.

WHen under load the motor revs up and it seems that the Clutch is slipping, it has 100000miles and I suspecting the clutch or the high / low range might be messed up, its a 4 plus 3 manuel transmission.


If it feels like the clutch is slipping, chances are it is. If there was a problem in any component that has internal gears, you would have grinding noises. Gears cannot slip. As the clutch wears more you may hear grinding when you try to change gears but that is because the clutch won't fully disengage so the gears are spinning too fast to shift properly. Before that happens, have the clutch replaced.

Maytag Atlantis washer. Washer makes noise that approaches grinding, and the agitator doesn't spin. Rather, isn't connected to the motor. Spins semi-freely by hand, with a rough motion and noise


Your unit is gear driven and is contained in a mechanism enclosure.The roughness your feeling when turning it are the worn-out gears.One cause is it might have ran out or dried out of gear lubricant.The motor drives a belt to run the gears so the motors are running fine.Your gear box is the problem.
