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.

My maytag pav2300aww will not spin at all yet it agitates and drains well I was told to clean the agitator so I took it off yet the washer still don't spin the switch look wore out to me so I by-passe


Check the water level sensor and the lid safety interlock. Many washers will work fine with the lid open EXCEPT during the spin cycle, so this is the first logical place to look. Try bypassing the lid safety interlock switch.

Maytag performa stops during agitate or spin


All washers have a safety switch on the on lid. There is usually a slot that a plastic pin goes into to activate the switch. These switches are high failure parts. The switch is located on the underside of the top deck. It should check 0 ohms when closed. You can also jump it but then it would NOT stop when the lid is open ie; during agitation or spin cycle ( a safety hazard).

Washer won't spin during rinse cycle. agitates fine during was cycle.


The lid switch is probably your culprit. the washer won't spin or drain if the lid switch is defective. Try pushing down on it with a pen or small screwdriver and see if it will spin then. There should be a slight clicking nois when it is activated, although it will sometimes click even though it is not working.

Won't spin, agitator won't turn. Repair it or just get a new one? 8 yrs old.


Hello,if your washer won't spin first check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follow.
1. If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely or if it is frozen or stiff replace it.
If the pump belt is broken or looks quite warm, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

AGITATOR: If the agitator won't turn, the likely cause is "Lid Switch" because if the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Thanks

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

Noise when stopping after spin cycle or open lid (after moving)


check hub nut, it is likely loose, its under the agitator. top pops off agitator and bolt hold agitator down.
