Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

1 Answer

Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.

7yo Maytag PAV2200AWW Washer will fill and spin and drain with no issues. It will not agitate. Makes a sort of "grinding" noise throughout the agitation cycle - while not moving anything at all. Once moving from agitate to rinse, will spin with no abnormal sounds. Wondering if it's time for a new washer...

I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.

    I think it uses the same winding for both the timer switches reverses the start winding . That puts the start winding out or phase with the run.

My Maytag PAV2200AWW Washing Machine makes a noise like grinding or metal-metal contact during the agitate cycle. How can I fix it?


The sounds of 'metal grinding/banging" begs the question of whether or not its even safe? If you hear that sound all the time or as you say ONLY during the agitation cycle suggests that you be able to service the tub/motor mounts in the underneath chass--which is a heavy-duty technician job. A Maytag technician has the tools you need. Or the obvious...get another one from a friend who is upgrading to a new washer and hands it down to you for a little change.

Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer drains as it fills.


The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away

No agitation on extra rinse cycle on Maytag Washing Machine MAV8557AWW


The manufacturer may have found there was little or no advantage to having agitation in the second rinse cycle so omitted it.

I have a maytag over capacity plus heavy duty 2 speed 10 cycle washer it fills with water fine you hear the motor kick in to girate but doesent spin or you put it on spin cycle it sounds like it is...


The motor is working, but the mechanism not engaged by the helix so the shaft can not move therefore no agitation or spinning. Motor is designed to turn 2 directions: clockwise and counterclockwise for agitation and spinning. Therefore there are 2 mechanisms to assist these tasks. The drain is control by a separate pump and it is still good also.
The tube has to be out to replace the helix for agitation and a part to engage with the spinning rotation to release the brake so the spinning function can work. These parts are cheap, but the the labor is not. Hope this can help
