Re: Maytag Neptune MAV6200AWW 5-speed washer
no matter how small or large the load of laundry this machine does not spin balanced and clanks and bangs during the spin cycle. I am very careful to spread the clothes evenly to start but it never seems to stay and the noice is enough to wake the dead. When the machine was pulled out there is a pile of brown sawdust like material in a circle around the center pulley.

Re: off balance spin/poor wringing
CHECK TO MAKE SURE ALL THE SUSPENSION SPRINGS ARE CONNECTED INSIDE THE WASHER. IF SO, THERE IS A SNUBBER UNDER THE WASHER MILKSTOOL THAT IS MADE OUT OF PLASTIC THAT CAN WEAR AND NOT ALLOW THE SUSPENSION TO GLIDE LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO. NOT THE EASIEST FIX DUE TO THE BRAKE BEING UNDER HEAVY SPRING PRESSURE. USE CAUTION

The DC code that comes up is just saying that the load is "off balance" to resolve this, open the washer and redistribute the last and restart.
The bang fron the tub that you hear is just from the load being off balance. Generally it's just the weight difference on the tub when the washer stops spinning. This is normal for an off balance load and is nothing to be overly concerned about.
If you are getting the DC code a lot, take a look at the types of loads you are washing. Are they small? Is it a mix of small and large items? Is it a few large items? This may be the answer to why you are having off balance issues. The Neptune is a very large washer, and can get off balance very easily with smaller loads. Try making loads larger or if you are washing for example sheets, try washing them in 3's. This will make it easier for the washer to balance the load.
Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!
Open the lid. take one hand and push the tub back toward a back corner. Take your other hand and fill in the gap on the opposite corner. There should be a black round rubber strap going from the outside top of the tub to the cabinet. Once you find it check all four corners. I feel sure that you will find more than one broken. These help to keep the load balanced. It is very important that you change these as soon as possible due to after these break these machines are bad about the tub banging into the sides and cracking the outer tub. To replace the tub will run ( in my area) around $240 - $300. These straps are not hard to replace and don't cost very much. I would rate replacing them a 2 on a hardness scale from 1 to 10. 10 being the hardest.
