PAV2300aww not spinning

7 posts in this topic

Replaced my thrust bearing on my pav2300aww maytag. I followed all the instructions and advise giving online. I used the .032 washer only and my cam arrow only goes to the min. ref. point and still will not disengage. the directions say to use a thinner washer if this is the case, but i do not have a thinner one. Any advise on what the problem might be?

Thanks for any help!

if you remove the belt and watch closely does the brake rotor

rise about 3/16" when rotating the tranny pulley CCW about 1/2 turn?

this is what the brake rotor looks like from

the bottom side.

Also, was it hard to install the E- clip?

Thanks for the picture! No the brake rotor does not seem to be moving at all, and no I didnt think it was hard to get the E clip on. At least not as hard as others had said, but i used the thinner of the washers. Not sure if it would have been as easy with a thicker one.

you need to add another washer. the kit should have come with a thick and a thin washer.

If you didnt have to fight to get the clip on then it aint right.

you could use one of your old washers too
