Hi, it sounds like one of the springs has come off removethe lid to check, then check the ones on the bottom of the drum, not all machine have springs on the bottom the have shock absorbers but these can fail aswell

If you type in maytag and the appliance number and search there is a note from a maytag repair person stating how to replace a faulty part. I believe this may fit under the warranty.

Maytag HAV2460AWW struggling to spin and drain


Gently tilt machine backwards and look underneath for stretched or damaged drive belt.The drive belt also runs pump. If it is slipping under load then the machine will not spin at full speed and pump out the wtare correctly, thuis leaving some in the machine at the end of the cycle.

We have a Maytag washing machine, model #HAV2460AWW, rev.10, serial #10359656CR. Just recently it started making a grinding noise that reminds me of a piece of wood jumping up and down against a bandsaw...


we just had the same problem and it was the bearing on the bottom of the pump, then it seized and we could possibly have to replace the motor to because of the load the bad pump put on it, I wish you luck with yours.

The Maytag PAV 2300 does not spin right if the load is slightly off balance. It bangs on the side and ordinarily lists to the right. On inspection, the washer is on level.


The list to the right should be resolved. Use a level and level the case left and right, and front to back. The final step is to tilt the machine fully on to the front legs, releasing the self leveling rear legs, and set the machine back down. It should be stable on the 4 feet.

usually this will center the drum and it is more forgiving on balance issues, most of which are common. Be sure to use MORE than enough water for more even loads.

Washer goes off balance so easily, no matter the size of the load, from towels to shirts. We checked the washing machine itself is level. It's so frustrating to have a small to medium load cause the basket...


The tub is out of alignment.The suspension springs are weak and must be tight, the tub must not shake,if so the dampers are faulty.
This suspension must be so rigid that it must not shake around freely . check the pulley arangement , the bearings at the bottom spindle, if out of balance. If there is any anomalies in this ddrive section it must be observed and checked.
A careful analysis is most important to having a first hand information.

My Maytag goes out of balance and bangs loudly


This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports.
There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four.
If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled.
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...

Banging washing machine on spins


Hi. I don't know if your problem has been sorted yet, if it has not ,then it sounds to me llke the concrete balance weight is loose or broken

There are 2 of them, one in the top of the m/c, and one at the bottom, if either of them are loose, then that is your problem.

If loose, can be tightened up, if broken away from the drum then you have a major problem
