Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

Correction! Maytag would not spin

Recap: last week machine would not agitate with motor running. Worked after some cleaning, no specific repair. This week machine would not spin, just slightly without real torque (Maytag Performa PAV2300) I took the transmission out and noticed that I can turn the lower shaft cw (with the thrust bearing assy) and the upper shaft goes through the agitation movements. When I turn the lower - the drive shaft- ccw the upper shaft would not rotate. You feel a break-like resistance when turning the lower shaft. What could that be ? Frank

Maytag washer tub will not spin.

There is a clutch assembly under the tub that controls the tub and the agitator. It sounds like the problem is with that.

Will not fill with water or agitate but will spin.

Hi,
The problem might be due to the motor is trying to run and can't or does'nt start or the motor is running but the belt broke and so it is not transfering any power.You will need to take a look and see which is the case.
Motors and belts can be challenging to repair so be warned if you are attempting the fix yourself. It does depend on the machine some are harder than others....

It does not agitate when in the normal cycle and does not drain.

"Does not agitate" sounds like a broken or worn drive belt. "Does not drain" sounds like a broken or worn pump belt. Since it is unlikely that both belts are bad, I suspect that the next common link, the drive motor, is bad, i.e. your drive motor is either defective or not getting power during the agitate and spin cycles. The primary symptom for a non-operating drive motor should be obvious, i.e., the machine just doesn't run after the wash fill, and it doesn't empty when the timer advances to the spin/drain cycle. If the drive motor does sound like its running, I would then inspect both belts and drive motor pulley for proper operation.

Washer will fill, drain, and run a complete cycle but will not agitate or spin

sounds like the motor control board is bad. you could test the motor to see if it ohms out ok, the diagram has the readings. The diagram should be on the side panel (inside the cabinet) on the lt side in a brown envelope.

Maytag won't spin or agitate

I have had the same problem and found that the teeth on the under side of the agitator had been worn down to nothing... I assume this is from years of over loading (not from me) and so the agitator could not spin any more... i would tighten the bolt that holds th agitator on and it would come loose after a few loads. So my solution was to get a little bit longer bolt and newer plastic washer and tighten it as tight as i could and it seemed to work. Versus buying a new agitator base that would cost about $20-$30 and would have to wait for the part to be ordered. hope this helps
