Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6700A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Walking washer No matter how I separate my laundry, my washer continues to "walk" across the laundry room. I had a repairman look at it, he rebalanced it and told me how to properly separate the loads. The service call should have been covered by warranty, but I found out when I received the bill that it wasn't. I very reluctantly paid the bill, because the washer didn't make it through one complete cycle before continuing it's "walk". We have tried the washer both on and off the pedestal, same results. The machine is supposed to be quiet and mine is so loud! It shakes the entire house. I was told that because I don't have concrete floors, it will continue with this problem. How ridiculous is that answer?

In my experience (20 years) machines behaving in this manner invariably have either drum or suspension problems. Here in the UK this would certainly be covered by warranty.

Hope this helps &thanks for using Fixya

My LGfront end loader washing machine is shaking so bad it actually walks across the laundry room 3 -4 feet

I had the same problem when my LG WD-8074FHB was new. LG recalled them and put a larger weight in them. The weight is a hollow piece of plastic filled with concrete in the top of the machine under the cover. It stopped it moving around the laundry.

Model number HAV2558AWW. Despite being level. The washer walks out of my laundry room. It doesn't matter what type of load I wash heavy or light. Is there a way to fix this proble.

The one most important thing about a washer is that all four legs need to be firmly in contact with the floor, and the floor needs to be rigid. Check that and let me know if that helped.

Washer goes off balance so easily, no matter the size of the load, from towels to shirts. We checked the washing machine itself is level. It's so frustrating to have a small to medium load cause the basket...

The tub is out of alignment.The suspension springs are weak and must be tight, the tub must not shake,if so the dampers are faulty.
This suspension must be so rigid that it must not shake around freely . check the pulley arangement , the bearings at the bottom spindle, if out of balance. If there is any anomalies in this ddrive section it must be observed and checked.
A careful analysis is most important to having a first hand information.

Why does my front loading washer turn sideways on spin cycle

i would check to make sure the levelling legs are down properly, AND LOCKED!! Once leveled, there is a nut that is cranked up to the case to prevent them from moving up and walking around the laundry room.

My GE frontload washer "jumps around" the room.

Plug off the mains. Open up the machine to look for defective shock-absorbers, broken springs, etc. You shd have done this much earlier, surely you're not walking around the house with a helmet.

For spares: (which is good)
