Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

1 Answer

Washer walks across floor no matter what problem.

Our Maytag Performa walks across the floor even with sheets in it. Not sure what to do any more. It is always out of balance.

    I have a PAV3300 which walks across the floor and vibrates violently, even with the smallest of loads.



    We have had it serviced but that has not stopped it walking and shaking.



    I have never seen this before in a washing machine. It is the first time I have ever used a Mayatg.

Maytag washing machine walks across floor during spin cycle


Did you set the back feet before leveling? On most units to set and lock the back feet you need to pull the top towards you so that the back is raised off the floor, then set it down again, this will release the feet and lock then down. The you level the two front feet. After this is done you must make sure your load is balanced. Distribute the items as evenly as you can in the tub. Once it gets to the spin cycle if its walking or shaking a lot, stop it and redistribute the items more evenly in the tub. Also try not to overload the unit or combining many heavy items with few light ones. If this is a new machine, did you remove the shipping locks from the back before using it? They have plastic strips attached to them, make sure they have all been removed, as well as any shipping bolts.

Make sure the feet are level and that the plastic caps on the feet are in place. Sometimes they are left off during installation.

Goes of balance. even with small load. it walks across the floor. clothes seem to gather to one side.i have leveled this machine, but no luck


There are 8 springs in the bottom tube to hold on the chassis. If some of them broken, it may cause this problem.

Maytag Washer MDE7400AYW goes off balance while spinning about half the time. Walks across room. Springs are OK. Tub seems very easy to move from side to side by hand.


Typically when the drum spins and walks the washer, it is a loading issue.
As the clothes spin, they collect on 1 side, due to cintrifical force acting upon an uneven load.
THis is especially prevalent in loads that are:
1. small,
2. contain lots of towels and
3. anything else that really holds water and is very heavy when wet (like comfortors, pillows)

These will very quickly throw the load off-balance.

When it happens, pull out some of the itmes, and re-load the laundry more evenly around the drum. Be sure to circle the post with towels and sheets, etc.

If you continue to run the machine off-balance for an extended time, the bearings and seals will wear quickly. Unfortunately, you will only know this when the washer begins to leak out under the machine onto the floor.

Hopefully this will fix-ya....if not let me know please!
