Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

Washing Machine making an electrical humming sound.

I have a Maytag washing machine Model# PAVT910AWW which I purchased two and a half years ago. Recently it has been Humming,after the initial fill when it's supposed to agitate, instead it starts to hum. I will play with the timer meaning pushing it in to stop and pulling it out to start, finally after doing this several times the washing machine will start to work until it gets to the spin cycle and then the same thing all over again. I have to repeat the pushing and pulling of the timer until finally it has gone through all of the cycles and has completed washing the laundry. I am afraid I am going to damage something else by doing this repetitively. what in your opinion has to be replaced or repaired? I intend to do this myself if possible. Please let me know what you think may be the problem.

    I am experiencing the identical problem, I continually open the lid then drop it down till the machine kicks in, this seems to be a common problem which Maytag should have an answer for

    I have the same problem, and I ordered and put on a new $65 timer but that did not fix the problem.

Recently my washing machine has been making a lot of noise on it's spin cycle now it will not tun making a humming sound and smells odd when I try to turn it on?!

I had a Maytag washer almost 5 years old that sounded like a Jet Engine taking off during the spin cycle. It was the Tub Bearing - there are kits to do this yourself. To hire someone it would of cost almost as much as it would be to buy a new Washing machine. Never again Maytag - it was whats inside that mattered so I bought an LG washer.

If you let it go too long your going to wind up flooding underneath the washing machine with Brown gunk
