Maytag Washer
« on: September 03, 2010, 07:00:15 PM »
Having trouble with my Maytag washer. Agitates and spins but not correctly. Agitation seems sluggish or weak. Spin cycle starts and stops which never allows the spin to reach top speed so clothes come out wet. Intermittent clunking noise.

Model PAV2360AWW

Could simply be the belt. OR that could be the pump locking up. Seen it.

Thanks for your feedback. Guess I'll invest in a new belt and see where that gets me.

Possible premature transmission failure also. You will know when it goes, sounds like a grizzly bear coming out of woods to eat you. LOL! ::)

Might be the transmission, the bear isn't particularly hungry yet but he certainly is coming. Would I be able to replace the transmission or would it be worth it?

Repairable yes, but costly, and special tools are needed including a spanner wrench and a brake removal tool. Cheaper to purchase another used Whirlpool.  ::)

The transmission alone is around $250. Brake removal tool is $80, spanner wrench around $15. Used washer, around $125. :)
