Maytag Performa Washer PAV2300AWW grinding and Performa Dryer PYE2200AYW not always heating
Posted 17 December 2011 - 10:43 AM
So I have this pair of Maytag Performa's. They are about 10 yrs old. I have an issue with each in the same week!
The dryer is taking a very long time to dry. The lint trap and all routing outside are clean and free of obstruction. It seems as though sometimes it heats, and other times it doesn't which requires another cycle (in which case it does heat). Why would it work one time, and not the next?
As for the washer, immediately after filling, it makes a terrible grinding noise when it begins to agitate. It will fill fine, it will spin fine, it drains fine....but again, sounds like a bunch of shredded gear teeth when agitating. I checked the belt and it appears to be fine, but I have not yet tore it down.
Sincerely appreciate any help for fixing them both! Thanks!

As for the dryer, I would ge checking the cord/terminal block/receptacle for a loose /burned/melted connection...

Bad drain pump on the washer...slam dunk.
Yep. Easy to replace, too. Here's the part link to the new, redesigned pump ==> Drain Pump
and to the old style pump for a few bucks less ==> Drain Pump

I suppose it would be prudent to remove the pump and take a look ,as this should be visually obvious.
If this pump is ok, uh-oh...tranny time!

Make a youtube video of it most of us can diagnose from just hearing it
