Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

We have a Maytag Performa PAV2200 Washing machine...lately, during the spin cycle it makes a loud whinning or scraping type of noise during the spin cycle and sometimes during the wash cycle.... we took off the agitator and there was nothing wedged underneath it like we thought might be happening... it seems to wash and spin ok, but we are worried about the sound.... also, when it stops running at the end of the cycle, it seems to stop more abrutley and louder... We thought about taking off the back cover of it and see if there is anything obvious wrong..but haven't yet... Your thoughts? Thanks!

Those 6 springs are pretty tough to get back on there without the special tool
other than that it all goes back pretty easy.

It appears Maytag no longer produces the type of quality product we have purchased since 1970... we've owned three Maytag Washers - our last "performa" is a piece of ****!

Maytag Performa PAV2200 makes a rumbling sound while agetating. Suspect a worn bearing or belt? Could you shed any light on this?


Yes it could be the spin bearing at the base on top of the brake assembly. I would suspect that the brake assembly is the cause of the noise as this engaged when you the washer agitates. If it was the bearing it would make a loud noise in the spin cycle, too.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK

Washer makes loud scraping sound


Could very well be the pump as well. These pumps have been notoriously bad for the pully shaft housing slipping down and hitting the pump pully. More that likely your problem.
