Maytag positions its Performa PAV2300AWW washing machine as a high-capacity model for those who have outsized laundry loads. The drier includes features like fabric softener and bleach dispensers, controls for four water temperature combinations, and four choices of water degrees. Attributes aside, no appliance is immune to a little trouble here and there.
A nonstarting Performa may indicate a power issue, so check the unit’s electrical cord is plugged in, and also you do not have a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Unlike washers using push-button starts, the Performa PAV2300AWW features pull-out dials; you have to place the dial to your favored cycle and pull on the dial outward to begin the machine. In the event the machine has power and the dial is pulled but nonetheless, it still won’t spin, make sure the washer’s top-loading lid is securely closed; the PAV2300AWW won’t spin until its lid is latched.
Ease Water Woes
If your washing machine starts up but doesn’t fill with water, then the appliance may have engaged its motor’s thermal protector. Allow the drier to rest for thirty minutes, then restart it. If the washing machine doesn’t drain, then remove any kinks or knots from the drain hose. To remedy a lack of water flow, ensure the connected cold and hot water faucets are put for their “on” places. Debris in the hose filter can prevent the washer from filling. In cases like this, disconnect the hose and clean out the filter using warm water.
Improve Your Wash
If the Performa’s clothes-washing power doesn’t seem up to level, make certain the incoming clean water is at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Maytag advocates adding detergent to the drier before loading it, and warns against wrapping massive items or sheets around the unit’s central, cylinder-shaped agitator. Place the water level to “medium” when laundering permanent-press things to prevent wrinkling, shrinkage and seam damage. If the appliance isn’t dispensing fabric softener correctly, remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator and rub it for a single hour in warm water plus a bit of dishwashing liquid. Shake and rub on the dispenser to clear it of buildup before replacing it.
Level Out Noise
Meanwhile, a Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW contains four leveling feet, which help stabilize the unit. If these feet are not properly installed, your device can stimulate excess radiation or noise. Adjust the feet by enlisting a mate to assist you lift the washer, then turning the screw-like leveling legs clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust them, securing them in place with their top locknut. Maytag recommends the rear of the drier rest about 4 inches away from the ground Flagstaff. Gently rock the drier to check the front legs for stability and adjust as necessary.
