Pulling the door open during the wash cycle meant that it was pulled open with the latch in the locked position. The door cannot be opened in this manner while it is operating. If the door now does not latch, it has probably been damaged and needs to be replaced. The following link explains how to replace the door latch:

A replacement latch can be purchased on line at appliancepartpros.com. Just type in your model number and look under Section 5, for item number 7. The door latch is listed as part number AP3837611.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Thanks for Trying? You never mentioned anything about replacing the latch in your question. Would have been nice to have this information before I researched all that information for you. Did you check the latch on the door itself, or the door latch mechanism inside the washer? Did you very the wiring was correct when you reconnected all the electrical connections? Are you receiving any fault codes?

How do I fix a front load washer that shakes violently on the last spin cycle?


CLOTHES UNBALANCED? OR COUNTER BALANCE SUPPORTS BROKEN, AND NEED REPLACMENT? WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..

My maytag washer is shaking violently on the rinse cycle


I am currently having the same issue with my Maytag A482. Not sure if you have found a fix yet, or if you have replaced your washer. My washer runs fine until it nears the end of the cycle, when it begins to spin and shake violently, enough to loosen the leveling feet and rock back and forth. I pulled the front panel of the machine off (two screws near the base in the front, and two clips at the top) and ran a load through it. It ran fine until the end, when the machine started shaking violently. I did notice a few small pieces of roundish felt looking material sitting on the bottom, which after some research looks like it may be the damper pad. I found these online:
Damper pad 203956
Replacement Damper 203725 for MAYTAG Laundry Appliances A482

I am hoping this will resolve the issue, I will order them this afternoon and install them once they arrive. I really hate to replace such a good washer with a new high efficiency unit, which all seem to have terrible reviews after a few months/year of use.

During spindrying the WFT9230TP shakes violently although the feet are all pressing tightly against the floor.


The clothes must be balanced inside the drum in order to stop the violent shaking. Unlike a front loader, the top loaders must be balanced before starting the load.

If you need more assistance, let me know.

Shakes violently on every spin cycle


Your washing is off balance (stuck to one side of the drum), next time, open the door and shake the clothes so that they are evenly spread. If this continues it can cause serious damage to the spindle on the motor and these con only be replaced as a new unit and very expensive.

Bad vibrations/shaking with LG washing machine WM2032HW


What's the exact model of your washing machine? I'll need this to get you exact part numbers.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap fix that works. Try installing a rubber anti-vibration pad under the washer. I've had the best luck with a pad called Silent Feet. They are pretty hard to find in stores but Amazon.com carries the full line of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads. They will provide you with the best results short of replacing the full shock isolation assembly in the washer. And they cost a lot less.

Shook Violently first time on spin cycle


Make sure the washer is leveled properly and all four feet are resting on the floor. If it is level, try running one cysle without any clothes in it to see it is spins without that violent shaking.. you may have also had an out of balance load.. Hope that helps!

It's either a bad suspension spring or you have a crack in the tub support.
