This is from another site but does a good job of explaining how to change your timer:
http://www.the-appliance-clinic.com/myttimer.html
The hardest part will be swapping the knob because you have to lift the top of it off and sometimes they can be fiesty.
WORDS OF CAUTION.

DO NOT pull all the wires off of the OLD timer. DO a ONE for ONE wire swap. i.e pull one wire from the old timer... and hook it up to the new one on the exact same terminal as the old timer.

    Maybe I mis-interpeted your question. I had thought that your knob also broke the timer stem. You did not bother to comment and just rated the post poorly so we are not communicating well. The knob itself has a top cover that you remove. Inside the top cover there is a slide clip you remove that will release the knob from the stem and the knob is pressed upward by a spring between the knob and the dial that has the pointer.

    Lift the cover off

    Pull the slide clip

    remove the clip

    transfer the spring by placing under the new knob but on top of the pointer plate

    Press down on the knob compressing the spring and install the slide clip.

    Install the top knob cover.

    I have worked on Maytags since the mid 60's and I can help you. We just need to communicate well.

    Thanks,

    Kelly

The belt is real easy to replace. Tip the washer back and yank the old belt off.

Maytag top load washing machine model PAV 2300 AWW. I've put in new springs but washing machine gets out of balance very easily. Have you got any suggestions?


If you have replaced the spring is the tub over to one side not in the center of the hole there is what they call a snumber ring on the bottom of the base the washer sets on that could be wore out but it is really hard to replace and you will need a special tool to compress the break

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 PAV2300 AWW nevre agitates and only spins once.


Ive never seen a Maytag washer, but I think know the principle. So! I think the motor turns in one direction to wash & the opposite direction to spin. Now, if the transmission is very stiff in the 'wash mode', that could be why its not washing. The motor could be overheating & the thermal trip in the motor cutting off the electricity supply hence having to wait 45 mins for it to cool.
Not too sure! However I think I am on the right track. Let me know please
