Question about Maytag SAV2655A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Which machine should I buy?

I have a 4 yr old maytag that has had the pump replaced 6 times and the transmission is about to go out for the second time. I decided to buy out
my extended warranty and put the money toward a new machine. I do a lot
of heavy loads - jeans and drop cloths - sheets. I really don't want anything made by the Whirlpool family because of my recent experiences. I've had my sisters take surveys of their friends but nothing really stands out. Can you please give me some ideas or places where I can read reviews. Most of the
reviews I read are short term and I want to know if the machine will last.
I'd really appreciate your help.

Thanks!

I have a Maytag Atlantis top load machine. It is 7 years old. I have very dark oil dripping from under the machine at the bottom edge of the front. I am assuming the gear box is gone but wanted to confirm...


Sorry to confirm your suspisions but its leaking oil from the transmission and its exxxpensive to replace the transmission. And sad but true the good ole days of dependabilty of the maytag is gone espically since 5 years ago Maytag was bought by Whirlpool. a Whirlpool is a good machine but nothing was good as the old Maytag's

Water leaks (drips ) into tub after cycle/spin is complete


You have a bad pressure switch or the small hose connecting to the pressure switch may be bad

If the washer leaks water when is filling only, check the following: 1.Fill hoses
2.The water mixing valve

3.Filling injector ( If your washer uses one )
4.Filling spout


If the washing machine leaks during the wash cycle, check the following:
1.The pump
2.The tub stem & seal
3.Tub to pump hose
4.The drain hose
5.Tub (rusted holes)
6.The drum support bolts


If the washing machine leaks during the spin cycle, check the following:
1.The drain hose
2.The tub cover seal
3.The pump
4.The pump hoses

5.The stem & seal
6.The drum support bolts

Stops at 11 minutes left in cycle. will not spin or drain


Google ""Maytag Neptune load unbalance""


Read thru the post. I feel you have a Clutch malfunction even though you may not be see DC ot UC unbalance errors to the Console.


I'm seeing that around the 5 to 6 yr mark it's time for a Tub Seal replacement and possible Outer Tub and Spinner Support bearings should be replaced on the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. It's not too bad for most DIY owners.

Maytag coin-op top load wont spin, motor runs, belt burns.


it not a belt, there is a $20 plastic and rubber coupling between the motor and the transmission that has broken.  It needs replacing.

I HAVE A 6 YR. OLD MAYTAG PERFORMA PAV 2300 TOP LOADING WASHER. UNIT WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR LOUD CLUNKING NOISE AFTER SPIN CYCLE. NOTE - ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED.


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.

Maytag legacy series washer leaking


Price is right. Repair time is right for an inexperienced repairman. Worth it ? If you watch what you are doing and not rush then, yes, it's worth it.
