If you're sure floor is ok replacing base usually the most likely fix ..the snubber that the unit sits on becomes worn and there have been issues with base from time to time causing it wear

I need to know how a maytag performa pavt-1 washer drains. does it drain beneath the agitator or through the holes in the basket?


It drains through the holes in the plastic tub. You may hear a sloshing sound when you move the tub and this is normal. There is a solution sealed inside the tub on this unit to balance out the spin cycle.

Becomes unbalanced easily....rocks violently when this occurs


I've been researching this problem with my own performa. So far the only solution I've found that keeps coming up is replacing a part called a snubber. Not sure where that fits in but I'll give it a shot. I've see it go for about $4 - $10 so why not?

Maytag Performa Washer spins out of balance


There was a recall on the washer base, which caused the unbalanced problem. Find Technical Buletin TDL-0050B-B issued by Matag.

Performa spinning banging problem


I assume it is not balanced. Try putting sponges under the feet of the washer.

Check the vibration dampers and the plastic mounts for wear. They should be solid to the machine.
