Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Maytag topload 1412 series 4. I recently tried to wash a comforter far too big for it. About ten minutes into the first cycle I checked on it and smelled something burning. I did not see any smoke. The smell produced was very much like that of a very old train I once had. I unplugged the machine and pulled out the comforter. There was no fire and no visible smoke. I later plugged the machine back in, it finished filling the tank with water and will do nothing else. Does it sound as if I've burned out the motor or something? Would whatever parts I've damaged be replaceable or is a new washing machine in order? Thanks for your help. Mark Tracy tripptracy@yahoo.com

My maytag commercial 2000 series washer i just bought bounces during cycles uncontrollaby. Please advise?


Verify if the shipping bolts were removed. The machine will be shaking and moving if they weren't. In the back of the machine there should 4 big bolts attached with nuts.

My maytag topload washer overfilled,


It isn't a sensor problem, it sounds more like your water level tube has pulled loose. This is attached to the outer drum itself. You can see it when you remove your front cover to the right of the outer tub. This tube uses the pressure generated from your tub water level to push air up to your water level selector, which has a rubber membrane that flexes and closes 2 contacts as the water level makes the rubber expand. If that tube is off, the water will just keep running.

Maytag toploader washer fills up with water correctly, then waits several minutes to agitate, then stops for a few minutes then starts, also it only works in the delicate cycle.


Hi,

Maybe the water doesn';t fill fast enough/drain fast enough so check all the filters.

maybe the heater is damaged or something is getting stuck somewhere now and then so to say, so it might just need some oil.

maybe a part of the chipset is failing.

maybe a valve in the water circuit fails.

i'd say you try to contact a technician and have him check it out.

I hope this is useful, and greets,

Olivier.

Which is better a top loader or front loader washing machine?


Front Loading Washing Machine: Fully automatic.
1. Better washing than toploading as technologically proofed.
2. No extra effort except putting cloths and detergent inside.
3. No need to observe in between while washing. Start and forgot. You can go market and come back.
4. No issue if electricity or water went out during washing.
4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.
2. Need extra effort to put the cloth from one box to another.

I have a maytag 6800 toploader. Water from bottom


If you feel OK to troubleshoot the Service Manual will give you some possible leak points to check. If you want to troubleshoot you beyond basic inspection you will need to remove the front panel and observe where the leak source might be. Worse case a tub seal issue. Easier fix would be a leak in the drain line; tub to drain pump/drain pump to output drain hose, one poster recently reported a cracked drain pump housing as their leak source. Here is a link for the manual.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1655507-found_service_manual_neptune_top_load

The one leak source I would be concerned with is a leak described around the clutch pulley on page 28. If that is your leak source it’s a big project and you may need think about a service repair (BIG$ for labor but see if you can get a no cost quote) or a replacement machine if it’s not cost effective to repair. If you go the replacement direction call the Maytag CSV phone number at the end of the manual and complain, I got them to offer up a 25% rebate by talking to a supervisor on their Whirlpool, Amana, Maytag product line (don’t shoot the messenger). I’m a DIY’er and if I can’t fix this thing for under $300 with ebay parts I would move on. But let’s go one step at a time and try to ID the leak source.

To help you remove the front panel see page 33 Pic for the putty knife insertion point to raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base.

See page 41 for front panel removal don’t poke around in there with the power on just view for a water leak with a flash light while the machine fills in a Quick Wash cycle and as the machine proceeds through the wash cycle. Safety first, please follows the safety guide lines in the SM. Post again if you have questions and I’m sure I or other forum members will chime in for support. Good Luck.
