SOURCE: top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load

The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...

There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

My Lid on my washer displays open when I close it and won't start if lid is open... please help.

your lid switch is not working or may be jammed try opening the top of the back of the washer make sure the lid switch is working im not sure if the mtw range uses switch or magnetic recognision with switch there is a small lid switch that clicks when the lid is slightly lifted with magnetic it makes no noise however they can both be bypassed by cutting the switch wires normaly black and red running along the right side of the control board (making sure power plug is not plugged in) stripping the two wires and joing them together

this should work

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance

Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Honestly, I would either call Maytag once you get the estimate and see if they will do anything for you (ie-cover the cost of the parts and/or labor) even though it is out of warranty. This is costly repair, and that machine was not Maytag's best. When Maytag took over Amana, they built the SAV series on the old Amana platform, and unfortuately it was not able to live up to the Maytag "Old Dependable" name. The new Maytags, however, which are built on the Whirlpool platform, are very dependable and we have had very few issues with the models starting in "MTW...", and we own a Maytag Home Appliance Center so we deal with these issues on a daily basis.

Maytag model LAT9605AAE serial # 13662937QD washer gets out of balance constantly on every spin cycle

make sure all of the legs are adjusted correctly. maytag washers also have to be on a very stable floor. if the floor is not stable or if the legs are not adjusted properly then the machine will shake all over as if they are out of balance.
