Out of balance top load washer

Maytag Dependable Care top load washer. Went out of balance to the point the drum was banging on the inside of the housing and it would shut itself off. Loads were balanced, machine is leveled well. I took off the front and inspected the springs, and they look great. What should I do?

This was my fix, my machine that would error out with DC/UC codes.  

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove the clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 4 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, good luck!

My Maytag Ensignia washer is not spinning well. It bangs side to side with even the smallest loads. It seems like something is loose. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a repair mans help....


Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...

Washer stops spinning in the middle of the spin cycle


Doe,s the water come on when it stops, it may have something to do with the balance of the washing load, if the water comes on it,s trying to rebalance it self.

Maytag Washer won't switch from rinse to spin


You have a bad lid switch. Before I retired Maytag had a lid switch kit that improved the switch that was originally in it. The problem would usually present itself if a person accidentally dropped the lid with a bang which would put the lid switch out of adjustment.
