Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Perfection and checked the tub springs for weakness - still does it
I presume this is a topload machine. Depending on model there are a couple of different foot designs, one has four independent feet - are all four feet firmly planted? Many models have rear feet that 'self adjust'. When the machine is tilted forward, the rear feet adjust so that all four feet are firmly planted. If this is not the problem, then there are some questions: If you open the lid, is the basket centered? If not, you may want to intentionally 'unlevel' the machine so that the basket is better centered. Is there anything slippery such as fabric softener under the feet? What type of floor is it sitting on? Floating smooth floors (those laid on a substrate layer) are the worst. Try cleaning both the floor and the bottoms of the feet. Putting double sticky tape under the feet might help. Does it walk every time? The water in the balance ring(s) might be missing because of a 'rub' causing a hole in the balance ring. Are you washing 'lumpy' items (picture a bowling ball ;-) ) if so, you might consider additing additional items to better distrubute the load.
