  • rbenef466 Jan 08, 2009

    pinevall1.....where did you get the PDF file that helped you fix the problem? I went to Maytag and they didn't have a parts list... only the operation manual in PDF. Your response back would be greatly appreciated. Mine jumps all over the floor. Thanks

    when it is on the spin cycle, it shakes and dances around banging on anything it bumps into. it can be felt and heard throughout the entire house.

Just fixed the same issue with mine. Machine wore a hole in the vinyl floor! The "snubber ring" the drum suspension system sits on is a nylon ring only costs about $5 but is not easily replaced. My local repairman said he needs the unit brought in so I just did it myself. Tricky to get the drum assembly out without special spring compression tool but not impossible. I found a free PDF manual online which was very helpful. Also you need a helper to get the drum out and turned upside down. Turn the pulley wheel counterclockwise until the aluminum drum in the middle spins freely then the ring can be changed. Good luck.

    Sorry, I cannot recall the site I found that manual on. I looked a little but can't find it. It is there if you do some clicking around. There were others posted with it. It is like $20 for a new repair manual on fixitnow.com. The spring tool is available at repairclinic.com, but I used a stiff steel rod (thicker than a hanger) and bent my own. The main idea is making a hook to latch the spring at the top and be able to pull it up off the frame or spring clip, and of course get it back on there.

    I learned a trick to easily remove the 6 springs without special tools. For the first spring, tilt the top of the tub away from you. This will stretch your spring out. While the spring is elogated, stick quarters between the individual spring coils. This will keep the spring stretched when you release the tension and makes the spring easy to unhook. It is important to alternate left and right when inserting the quarters between the gaps. This will keep the spring straight when you release the tension. To release the tension on the spring, tilt the tub back toward you. Then simply unhook the spring. Do the same now for the other 5. After re-installing the springs, simply tilt the tub away to stretch the spring out and remove the quarters.

HI!!! I used to work for maytag and this model vibrates and moves around ..we used to install skid pads so that it would not vibrate and move..also make sure that the unit is not off balance.. You should have 4 knobs underneath the unit so that you can adjust it..Good Luck..

if it sounds like a boeing jet, you will need a new seal & bearing kit. This is something a technician would have to do. many "special" spanner wrenches and spring tools required
