Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Maytag washer approx. 8 yrs old. works fine till it gets to spin cycle. the agitator is froze. sometimes during spin i have raise lid because of unbalanced load and brake has squealed ( more than one time) and does motor suppose to have some movement on its base?
Could be a worn belt,
Empty the machine and tilt backwards, you may need some help to do this.
Remove the belt and check, some times these appear OK but may have stretched.
Chech the agitator pully, try to rotate, will only move in one direction, see agitator moving as you do, get the person helping you to see this.
Check the motor moves freely on the tensioner, motor will appear to move 2".
Fit a new belt and try.
