Level the machine, if you are on a wood floor it could be the floors fault, you could try using aanti vibration pads.

    the machine does not adjust load balance per say, when it start spinning it speeds up and slows down wich help distrubute the clothes evenly.

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.

Will not spin the clothes dry it's seem it is not balanced ?


You may have One wet heavy item (one sweatshirt or one bath towel) that is not evenly dispersed within the wash tub, and this will prevent the machine from reaching and completing the spin cycle.

When i am on spin cycle it stops and has a nf error code! what can i do?


This error code, pops up usually when in the spin cycle, your clothes are out of balance, too heavy of a load, or even at times it can happen with a too light of a load. Just stop or pause your washer and re arranged the items inside,

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
