Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

My maytag Performa PAV3360AWW had three problems going. It quit agatating and spinning, and the water keep filling and overflowing. We replaced the belt, and also discover that a hose had come lose on the back. It now agigates and the water shuts off but it won't spin. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

    The motor is running. Is the pulley kit hard to put in? Can you give any insructions on how to put it in?

    The motor is running. Is that the same thing as a thrust bearing kit?

  • spacebear Jul 09, 2008

    Hi Again,

    My husband took off the pulley and it didn't appear that there was anything wrong with the parts. Is there something you would be able to see by looking at it ? There is only one belt on the bottom. There are two small pulleys and the large one. Is there another belt or does this model just have one. Maytag pav3360aww. Any other suggestions?

    Hi Again,

    The basket is out, and no sock inbetween. The agitator spins, but turning the pulley the otherway it moves a little bit and then is stuck. Is it the white disc under the shaft that moves to make it spin? Any other suggestions?

Please bear with me as i am committed to help you. but i need to know if the motor is running while it is trying to spin or if it is silent. if the motor runs but no spin then you may need a transmission pulley repair kit (approx $30). or if is silent then you may need a lid switch.
let me know if you need more help

    yes it sounds like it needs the thrust bearing kit. 

    • lay the machine down on its side and look at the bottom

    • take off the belts

    • on the large pulley you will see a C clip

    • take this C clip off and the pulley and all the parts you need to change will come off.

    put the pulley back on and turn it. turn it one way it should move the agitator, turn it the other it should disengage the break and the basket should spin freely. if it does all that correctly then you know the problem is somewhere else. if you cant disengage the break and spin the basket then these parts are needed. if the break disengages but the basket is hard to turn then it might have a sock or something between the tub and basket.

    the whole function of this thrust bearing kit is to disengage the brake so the basket can spin freely. so if you compared the old parts with the new parts and they look perfect, then the only other thing would be the center bearing completely locked up (rare). this usually does not happen unless the center seal has leaked water on it.
    i still think that the plastic pieces in the trust bearing kit could be bad. this is a very common problem with these machines.

Model #110.49962600 water fills agates will not spin

And the code is!? Gee I hate when that happens! OK look at these:
F1--Water supply/low water fill.
o 1. Check water supply to machine.
o 2. Replace water inlet valve.
• F2--Water level too high.
o 1. Plugged/Bad water pump.
o 2. Faulty water valve.
• F3--Pump problem.
o 1. Check pump trap and clean.
I go with the last one..Common, then the pump is bad then the valve. But You didn't tell Us!

My washer fills with water and keeps filling doesn't stop on the selected water level for the load. It doesn't wash because the water keeps filling. What's wrong with my washer? Help please (Maytag...

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

You may need a new fill switch.Or you can try to remove the small hose from the outer tube to the water level switch and clean it.That is a short cut that may work but i would go with a new water level control switch hope i helped:)

Maytag top loading washer won't agate. Instead it fills with water and spins, then drains, fills for the rinse and spins. Thanks Bill

Open your control panel.
Disconnect then reconnect your timer wiring harness.
If this does not correct the problem,replace the timer.

Water fills but won't stop filling-overflows and won't spin out

This is joyce
You might want to check into the Valve that lets the water flow into the machine or it may be the switch that controls the water flow to the machine, it is either one of the 2. go to and dowload your document to your machine type and see if you can get help.
let me know how it goes

Maytag performa

does the water overflow from the waser. also try and fill the washer up with water and when you feel it should be filled to capacity shut the water off to the washer. and turn off the power. After you have done that turn the water back on and turn the power back on to the washer if the water stops running it could be your water valve and is easily replaced. if the water continues to run it could be the pressure switch (water level switch) or it could be a hole in the pressure switch hose.
