Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Washer was making weird sound during spin cycle-found out water wasn't draining-used Drano in drain out pipe. Still didn't fix it. Spin cycle got worse, intermittenly cutting out, coming back on. Can you help?
You may have an obstruction in the pump, a faulty belt, or a pump failure. If the washer is unable to remove the water as it spins, centrifugal force would cause water to exit over the top and onto the floor. As the washer spins, slowly at first, water is extracted via the pump running at full rpm. As the water level decreases, so does the weight of the load, so the tub will begin spinning faster. If the pump fails in its job to remove the water, the weight is more than the drive system can handle, The clutching action slows the rpm of the motor which, in turn causes the motor to automatically shut off on its thermal protector. After the motor sufficiently cools, the thermal protector closes and the motor resumes the cycle. If the problem does not resolve itself, the motor will continue to cycle off and on, which could lead to a motor failure. Also, rarely a clothing item may attempt to breach the top during such an episode, and cause a jamming of the inner and outer tub and even, subsequently make its way to the pump, so inspect there for foreign material.
Tip: If clothing is in the pump or stuck up by the tub collar, the cause is due to overloading the washer. Cutting back on load sizes will prevent this from happening in the future.
