Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water overflow no problems until yesterday when the water just kept flowing regardless of size setting. I replaced the water sensor and thought it was OK but after 3 loads it overflowed again. I replaced the water shutoff valve (and solenoid) but this was not the problem either. Water is still overflowing.

    I removed the clear hose to the water sensor and found a small cut right at the clamp.
    I cut off the last half inch of the hose (at the cut) and reinstalled it. Washer seems to work fine now.

Hi we have a Baxi duo tech 24 Combi boiler on Lpg gas. Noticed a problem a few weeks back getting E128 code when using hot water. After a few tries it worked with the water but the heating seems only to be...


If hot water is coming at DHW setting and not at CH, you most likely have a diverter valve malfunction. Since you are receiving hot water regardless in which setting, then ignition issue is not your area of concern. Water is not being routed/diverted as per your knob setting. As per knob setting, if flow is not detected ignition will not be triggered. To zero in on ignition failure see if spark.is generated.All The Best.

Any suggestions to washing machine which works with irregular water supply?


all models have a water level sensor in them that you set according to the wash load you have
when you turn them on the water flows until the level set switches off the inlet tap and proceeds to wash
regardless of the water pressures and delivery, the wash will not proceed until the water level setting is reached
the problem that you face is that during the rinse cycle , there may not be enough water available to rinse within the rinse/ spin cycle

Water doesn't come out.


you should have water at the connection in back of the fridgewhen you disconnect it, don't completely disconnect i.. but loosen it enough to
see if water flows..if so then a sensor that activates the water for icemaker or water flow may be the prob.

I HAD THIS PROBLEM AND REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT, BUT THE TRICK IS TO OPEN THE BLEED SCREW ON THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING, AND FILL THE ENGINE WITH COOLENT UNTIL IT RUNS OUT OF THE BLEED SCREW. (CLOSE THE SCREW THEN) NOW THE ENGINE WILL HAVE THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF COOLANT.

I DIDN`T KNOW THE PROCEDURE FOR THIS AND MINE KEPT OVER HEATING UNTIL I LEARNED THIS TRICK.

Take off front cover, on the top of the two cylinders in there (the heating system) there will be a small red button. That is the Safety Thermal Cut out, depress that red button. It is similar to a circuit breaker. If the red LED comes on when you turn on hot water at a sink then that was the problem. I have on that trips periodically. Its annoying but not enough to replace the part yet. Good luck.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


from what I am reading on-line, it is the mix valve, aka water valve. Unplug the washer, then see if it still fills. If so, it's most likely stuck open, and needs to be replaced. about $22.00

Dishwasher not heating water


You may have an overheat sensor in this unit. Usually, they are small buttons about 3/4 inch in diameter secured to the bottom of the tub and having two wires attached. Find and replace it.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.
