    Thanks for trying, but the diagramsin this manual show 4 completely different shocks than what our washer has. Mine only has two in the rear and they bolt through the floor of the washer not through bolts.

    Look at page 7-8 of this manual. IS this more like it? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33507267/Maytag%...

  • Donald Saber Nov 01, 2012

    The part in the exploded view looks like it, not page 7&* however. I know the part number is 22001988. My main question is how do you reach the top nuts of the shocks? Do you have to remove the innet tub to reach them. I put new front and rear bearings 2 weeks ago solved that problem wish I had replaced the shocks at the same time.

SOURCE: MAYTAG NEPTUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER MAH5500BWW

Central bearing and seal are damaged. Very expensive repair and very expensive parts. Maytag does not sell bearings separately, they're only available with the outer tub, which is $400-$500; Repair itself is another 2-3 hours of hard work. Do the math...

Spin cycle is going on balance


Betty, if you suggesting the machine is out of balance/ causing the machine to jump around in spin cycle
1. it may be due to a heavy wet load ,like towels unbalancing the machine, try less load or slower spin ,then fast spin
2. could be concrete balancing block inside machine has come loose, both problems causing a unbalancing affect on the spin cycle.

Washer walks across floor on spin cycle and my level says its level


If the level is registering the machine as level, then you probably have an unbalanced load that is causing it to "walk." When it starts walking, lift the lid, wait until the spinning stops and redistribute the articles in the basket. I hope this helps. If you're satisfied with my solution, please rate my solution on Fixya.

My PAVT920AWW won't spin hard enough to get all the water out


I have had teh same problem. I calledin the Maytag service and they did replace something out of goodwill but the technician told me that the load balance sensor is sensitive. If your load is unbalanced then the machine will spin slowly so it does not walk across the floor. With larger loads the wieght will make the machine bang against the sides and walk.

The solution is quite simple. Make sure the load is balanced. The agitator has a way of unbalancing a load from time to time so you need to do this manually. It is a very rare occurance and it is best to make sure your load goes into the machine balanced first.
