Some models the bowl is suspended from the top, check all springs & shafts are connected. If the washer bowl is suspended from the bottom with springs they are adjustable. In this model sometimes the base is warping & will need replacing.

SOURCE: Ld error on Maytag Bravo. How to remove items stuck under tub?

if you can see the socks you may be able to remove by making a wire hook with an old coat hanger or something similar if you are able to undo the hose coming out of your bowl to the water pump you may be able to also fish out the coins if you are lucky but the best way is to dismantle bowl let me know how you went

SOURCE: Hi there, My Westinghouse washing machine

Hi just read your posting.Now are the springs at the bottom end of the suspension rods inside a tube with a rubber insert at the end of the rod?If this is correct then it will be the same as most top suspended washing machines.We call these tubes dampeners and they stop the spring from reacting too fast therefore keeping the inner bowl steady.Now try this.Take the weight off each rod one by one so you expose the spring the put some bearing grease around the rubber insert.Be generous with the grease and do this to each rod.This will help the rods react properly to the shifting weight of the bowl and help seal any wearing of the rubber.Make sure to replace the plastic cap and please reply if you require further help.Good luck.

SOURCE: maytag bravo quiet series 300: Stopped at spin:

We have a Maytag Bravo Quiet Series 300 washing machine, the door latch is broken. I have the replacement part ( the locking mechanism) but I need can not figure out how to get the top of the washer to flip up to give me access to top front of the machine to remove the old part and replace it with the new.

How do I flip back the top (not the door) of this machine?

SOURCE: how to get the clothes out of my maytag bravo that

Hello, welcome to FixYa

To address your question "how to get the clothes out of my maytag bravo that is in between the tub" you should do as follows...

**First unplug the washer... safety first**

1) the top needs to be lifted, this is best done with a puddy knife or something similar to depress the clips on both sides, i.e. (these tops are quiet heavy and the lid has heavy springs so be careful...leave the top in the "up" position until you can rest the entire top against a wall or something to allow you to work un-impeded as show below as well )

Lean it back if that lid again, those springs are heavy duty.

2) remove the re-circulation hose clamp for the top deflector/splash guard...and remove the guard via the clips around the tub.


Pull's off,

3) remove the "agitator" assembly (we'll call it that anyway)...first the cap, then the 7/16" bolt, pull straight up (you may need to wiggle it back and forth until it lets loose )

7/16' bolt,


4) once removed you'll see the outer basket hub, you do not even need to remove this via the philips head screws...sometimes it helps to loosen it, but don't take it off completely. Then the entire assembly will lift out ( again you may need to wiggle it around )

That should gain you access between the tubs. Also I'd suggest you check small plastic cover over the pump outlet/sump area. It's a good idea to remove it and check around or clean out since you're in there.

That should give you a pretty good start or in fact all you need to clear up your problem. Let me know how you make out and we can go forward from there if necessary. Good luck.

I'll be watching for your post on progress/completion.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washer Model number WTW63003WO that gets off balance and displays a UL code.

It's important to check the level of the unit, and assure all adjustable feet are firmly planted on the ground first. A very common problem with these units are the suspension dampening rods, when they get weak they allow the tub to move around too much while spinning, and sometimes washing. A simple test by an experienced technician who knows what to look for would be to reach into the wash basket while the machine is empty and off, and push the tub all the way down till it stops, the technician will be looking for the amount of resistance it takes for this to happen. The easier it is to push the basket and tub assembly down to the end of it's travel the weaker the suspension rods are. At least one update to these suspension rods have been made, suggesting the current replacements are stronger. Part# W10247710, based on a model number of WTW6300WW0. Pleazer Appliance...

My top load Bravos washing machine wobbles during spin cycle.

Most likely suspension rods and bushings need replacing. Also check outer tub ring. Sometimes it will break from beating on sides of washer, behind where water comes out.

My mtw6700tq0 was doing the same thing and got progessively worse. I found out the suspension springs sometimes weaken. I replaced them and the problem went away. Sears PART NUMBER: 8564009 - Maytag part - W10189077 - costed me $51.47 from Sear Parts Center. The replacements have added pieces to replace the need for a grease filled fitting. So be sure to read the instructions so you dont have re-open the unit to install all the extra I did. Good luck.

Can I pack insulation around the outer tub of a Maytag Bravos to prevent it from going UL (unbalanced load)? I already replaced the outer tub, leveled the machine and locked the legs. Still goes UL a...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(If you haven't already, try my guidance notes on leveling, please!)

I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?

LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg

Are there bumpers that line the outside of the drum? Sometimes when the spin cycle starts up it bangs along the front edge but no place else.

Open the cabinet and look at the "suspension rods" to see if one is broke or has come loose. Here is a link to the parts in case you need them.

My oasis he is not a see through top but i keep getting the ul message and when it goes through the spin cycle it sounds like ajet engine. iS THERE A SENSOR THAT NEEDS REPLACED.Sears wants 129.00 to just...

UL is unbalance load. uL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an
off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a
mini-cycle to rebalance the load.
Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the
load.If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door
lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and
redistribute the load. Page 57 shows the suspension
rod removal to get the tub out. These rods (4) hold the tub in place. Sorry I do not have an oasis manual but this Bravos manual will give you an Idea. One of those rods could be worn to the point it is throwing the the whole tub off. If a rod is broken then the tub could be pressing against the base and binding the motor, causing that noise. You gonna have to check and see.
