Maytag Performa Model# PAV 2300 AWW agitator & larger wash load

I have a Maytag Performa Model# PAV 2300 AWW washer and during washing cycle if it's washing load larger than ''large'', the agitator would become detached to the washer but doesn't affect the spinning. The agitator is attached to the bottom plate by a bolt and I can reattach it by using a ruler and packing tape at the end. Problem is that it keeps on happening. Is there a way of making sure it stays on so this process doesn't continue?

Pull the agit out and look at the side just below the slots there is a small hole there and the lock screw is probably missing . / to pull agit you turn the screw out and to lock it down you turn it in till it stops . if no lock screw the out comes the agit ... could be very bad in spin if it came out . i have heard of this .. so lock it down .. **** hope this helps .

My maytag performa pav 2300 is making a loud noise while its spinning. Sounds like metal on metal. Its working fine. Its just that noise. We just got a new motor yesterday. What could be the problem ?...


Hello
On this model washer the noise is most likely caused by a worn washer tub seal assembly. remove agitator (nut on the top under cap), spin basket and tub assembly. remove seal and install new one.

Maytag PAV2300AWW Washer makes grinding sound when agitating


Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.

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

I HAVE A 6 YR. OLD MAYTAG PERFORMA PAV 2300 TOP LOADING WASHER. UNIT WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR LOUD CLUNKING NOISE AFTER SPIN CYCLE. NOTE - ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED.


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
