I have a Maytag Performa top load Pav2200aww. It fills with water then agitates. Then pauses before the first spin cycle like it should. When it goes to spin the motor clicks like it's running but does not spin or drain. If I move the knob to the final spin cycle it spins and drains fine. Thanks in advance for any help!
Most likely the setting switch that is under the knob has a bad contact. This could be the only thing that is causing the issue if the washer agitates, spins, final spins, and drains. If you have to manually move the switch to get the washer to work properly, then it is the switch. Remove and replace.
