Question and Answers

Q:

Washer will not agitate, fills with water, just sets then, turn control nob to spin it spins and dumps water PAV3300AWW Maytag Residential washer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your washer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number pav3300aww and if you have to turn the knob to advance the machine to the next click or cycle; this would indicate a failing timer item 11. The machine also has a water level switch item 5 that may need to be cleaned out if you are having issue with the water level. I have included a link to our Parts Direct page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.

Hi,

Thank you for asking this question and allow me to answer it this way.

Your washer is a belt driven washer and does not have a motor coupler. The belt is tensioned by what is call a spring located inside the cabinet of the washer. It allows the motor to move when starting up and tensions as the motor gets to the correct speed. Another thing is the pump could have inside it slowing it down and the same belt that drive the transmission drives the pump. The top must be raised and the front panel removed to see the area I am talking about. Then with the front panel off put the washer in spin and see and listen to where the noise is coming from.
NOTE: Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts

NOTE: Live voltage checks are dangerous, and possibly deadly. Exercise caution at all times. If you are not comfortable working with live electricity I suggest you call an Sears Home Services technician.



I hope this answer is useful and that it helps you correct the problem with your appliance.
Thank you for using ManageMyLife.

I am having the same problem but I have a little bit more information. I have confirmed that the electric motor spins both ways. It spins clockwise during the wash/agitate cycle and also during the draining cycle. My machine correctly agitates and drains so I assume the belt grabs and the transmission is turning. Now during the SPIN cycle I verified the electric motor changed direction and now turns counter-clockwise. Unfortunately the tub does not spin at all. It feels frozen and I cannot turn it by hand. Since this machine only has a single belt I assume that this is not just a belt slipping problem since the motor/belt/transmission worked during the agitate/drain/clockwise cycle. Something is causing the tub not to high speed spin. Any ideas on how I can diagnose this problem any further... do I replace transmission or is there a break system that can be replaced or is the timer/control getting faulty and can replacing this fix the electrical signal to properly control the SPIN cycle? Help!!!

Here is some checks for you to do withe the washer leaned back so you have access to the pulley and with the belt removed. You may have only the thrust washer as the faulty part and this will test the release of the brakes using the thrust washers. I will send more pictures on another reply. 3 pictures is the limit I can send.

Dear Bill, This is so cool, your great for helping us poor newbies out with technical help. I tried so many uTube videos and round they would go kinda telling me how to make a repair but really stepping a-z through checklist I could not find. I did find a site that indicated my problem might be a frozen bearing or thrust washer.... I like it when I get info like reason A very rarely happens vs. reason B most likely... I will take your advice!!! THANK YOU.

Q:

Why won't my Maytag Performa clothes washer spin even though it will agitate, fill, and empty the water?

A:

Since you indicated that the washer is draining, this would imply that the motor is spinning in the counterclockwise direction properly to run the drain pump and properly drain the water. You did not indicate whether the basket is spinning or how fast it is spinning if it actually is rotating. A slow spin could cause this drying problem. Slow spin speed can be caused by a bad bearing or a binding tub seal. It can also be caused by a brake rotor assembly not disengaging properly, a slipping clutch spring or an off balance clothes load. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this type of problem in your Maytag washer.
