I had this problem as well. I called dealer and Maytag. They made an appointment and stood me up several times.
I finally went to place that sells refrigeration equipment and bought an anti-vibration pad. It's a 12" square waffle pad used under large equipment to prevent them from vibrating loose on connected piping. I cut it into 4 pieces and put one under each corner of the dryer. Problem solved, in fact it worked so well that I stacked dryer over washer, placed pads between units and have not had a problem since. I also gained a lot of space in my laundry room as well.

I had the same problem, once I remove the shipping bolts on the back of the machine it worked fine.

I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

This sounds like the transportation support rods have not been removed. A new machine will have two or more steel rods supporting the drum to prevent damage during transportation. These rods MUST be removed before the machine is used, otherwise the dampers that prevent excessive vibration will not be effective.

The user manual should provide instruictions for removal of the rods. They are normally accessed from the rear of the machine and usually will be labelled so that it is clear how to remove them. They pass througn the chassis of the machine and should be unscrewd and pulled out from the rear.

Hello, welcome to fixya. Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Maytag washer, these units are built by Whirlpool (such as yours) as you may or may not already know. That being said, I cannot locate any model number with the number 1 in it, could you double check and clarify perhaps it is a "wvwc700" or other ? Thank you for visiting fixya for your washer inquiry. Please let me know and I'll certainly help in any manner going forward. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Maytag top load washing machine repair


Hello,

It sounds like your Maytag (now owned by Whirlpool) Actuator needs to be replaced. Last year our Maytag Centennial top loading washer Model MVWC300XW0 would not drain all the water and cloths would be soaking still. Doing some online research, I came across some very helpful video regarding replacing your Actuator.

The only thing I would recommend to future installers is get your Technician Manual located just inside the case (front panel) first of your Washer. The Technician Manual is taped inside your washer in a plastic bag. Once you replace this Actuator part, I recommend that you run the Calibration cycle on your washer. It is needed anytime you replace a motor, motherboard or pump.

Here are two videos describing how to change/replace the Actuator but these videos are basically for the MVWC300XW0 model. I'm sure if you search for your model, there will be other videos as well.

Two videos on how to replace your Actuator:
1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVjTY-Hj4jw
2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTHryoT78pA (This is video that I viewed the most)

Best of Luck!

Why is Maytag Centennial 3.2 cu. ft. SuperSize Capacity Plus Top Load Washer shaking during spin cycle


check to make sure it is sitting level on the floor and one leg adjuster hasnt backed in making it shake. But even when you stick cloths in evenly they can bunch up during cycles.

Washer shakes bad


You probably have already checked this but since you do not say.........

Is the unit solid and level on the floor........with the leveling legs turned down as low as possible with the lock nuts tight.......?

If you put a glass of water on the dryer next to the washer, can you see the water vibrating when the washer is in spin? You may have weak floors.........Cement floor is the best floor, after that you need to check........

You do not say there is any noise, is the unit walking on the floor?

When new and installing there are shipping bolts and or straps to remove before using......

good luck,
enjoy the weather

4 month old washer is so loud it sounds like someone dropping a trash can to the pavement from 5 feet high


Check to make sure it's level. Number one cause of vibration is not being level. Number two cause is soft floor and what I call "Sympathetic vibration" where the floor shakes a bit and it seems like it's in time with the vibration on the washer. It then magnifies the vibration and makes it worse.

If it's level and on a solid floor, you need to get it serviced under warrenty.

Washer shakes terribly in spin cycle


Does the floor or the walls shake? If they do you have to beef up the flooring under your washer, with blocks between the floor joists, piers, or sistering of the joists. If there is no shaking of the floor or walls, and your washer is solid on the ground, leveled and not rocking, then it is your washer. Lg has problems with too much vibration in their washers. Check to make sure that your lint filter/coin catcher is clean. Open the door in the bottom front, put a towel down to catch the water, Unplug the washer, and unscrew the large plastic screw that is the filter for your washer. If this has debris in it clean it out completely. Look in the hoses also, if your water drain is restricted by lint or coins or other debris, the washer has clothes in it that are wetter and heavier than they should be, and this will cause sever vibration. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle


On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.
