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

My amana washer barely spins but makes a jackhammer sound in spin cycle


The "jackhammer" sound is that the load (and hence, the "basket" it's in) is out of balance, causing the basket to spin in an eliptical motion.
Some washer (like mine) will momentarily shut off when it senses this, and restart when the basket slows down enough to make the out of balance condition go away, unless it starts in again, then it'll shut down again and restart.
If this is what is happening, the washer keeps shutting off and restarting, making it appear that the basket is spinning slowly, as it never gets up to full speed.
Try redistributing the load when this happens.
Also, the usually is a spring arm with a rubber "snubber" on the end that presses against the top of the basket, to help dampen an out of balance condition.
The spring over time weakens, and the dampening action is lessened.

Please settle a dispute with my husband. my washer has an off balance load. do I have to remove things, or will adjusting the load eventually work to even it out?


the off balance sensor won't adjust the load,, it will notify you if the load is so far out of balance that it needs to be re adjusted . I hope this reply doesn't effect the rating I will receive :)

Calypso washer machine


Off Balance. From the service manual (you can google error codes for these machines), if the motor controller detects an unrecoverable off-balance condition, the machine controller will shut down and display an "ob" for off balance. The lid switch must be opened at least once before restarting the cycle, if this condition occurs. Opening the lid will allow you to view and redistribute the load. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

WF865 noise when spinning


Washers have to be balanced. Some have balance adjusters either inside the dryer as explianed above or on the bottom to level the washer. try to balance it by turning the bolts slightly or the bottom portion of the washer to level it. Or else they want to shake apart. Also by distributing the clothes evenly so it won';t be all to one side can help. do not tighten the screws all the way. Just tighten them to the point of getting the right balance.

Stops mid cycle


It may be a out of balance alarm during a spin cycle. Re-balance the clothes and hit start.

Cloths were soaked !Won't restart, door locks and you hear a buzzind sound ??


Greetings JohnnyWrench,

Information provided by the manufacturer would indicate a few things possibly causing this:

1) Washer was overloaded, remove some of the clothes and continue the cycle.

2) Washer load was too small. Add 1 or 2 similiar items to help balance the load.

3) Load is out of balance, rearrange clothes to allow for more balanced spin.

4) Drain hose might be kinked, straighten drain hose.


You can also find a copy of your owners manual at

I hope some of this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy
