one of the welds on your inner stainless steal tub may have broke causing the drop of your tub.  The tub has a warranty on it but the labor to put it in is around 3hrs give or take any hour.

SOURCE: Washer basket has dropped 1.5"

Different models use different devices to "suspend" the tub. Please verify the exact make / model.

My washing no start and display view f34 Thanks


The F34 code normally only occurs when you are trying to run the CLEAN WASHER cycle. The washer should be completely empty of laundry when you are attempting to start this cycle. If the washer is empty and you are trying to run this clean washer cycle then you could have a friction problem with the spin basket that is causing the F34 code. Try turning the spin basket by hand with the washer empty and dry. The basket should turn relatively easily. If the basket will not spin easily you could have a problem with the bearing in the back of the outer tub or you could have an item stuck between the spin basket and the tub inside the washer.

Our Crosley washing machine (Model # CW5000W) will not spin all the water out of the clothes and is making a bad noise while it spins.


Three possibilities here,

One, you've overloaded the washer with clothes, throwing the washer basket on tilt because of the extra weight and force against the agitator. Remove the wet clothes from the washer and try continuing the cycle.

Two, One of the elastic/spring arms that centers the basket inside the washer housing has broken and is allowing the basket to simply flop around. Disassemble the washer and inspect the basket supports.

Three, The center post that the washer basket sits on is going bad - The most common reason is that the bearings have gone bad. Disassemble the washer and replace the bearings at the base of the basket where it connects to the motor.

I have a FAV6800AWC Top Load Maytag Neptune When in spin cycle you cannot keep it balanced, makes a banging soud (loud) and kickes washer off


Hi,

It sounds like the spin basket rear support is loose. The support is part of the spin basket & does not come separately. This type of repair will more than likely need the spin basket replaced & possibly the outer tub also. It will cost you $200-300 to replace the assembly.

Hope this helps.

Washer doesn't spin


Hello skull1829 ,

Was the Clutch/One-way roller bearing changed out for dc/UC errors in your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW?

If you start a Spin Only Cycle with an empty wash basket will the wash basket spin up CCW and complete the cycle? Lift the washer top from the base a few inches to observe the wash basket CCW rotation in spin cycle. If the clutch spring is broken or end pins of spring aren't seated the tumblers will rotate and the wash basket will rotate slowly CCW.


IF the wash basket won't spin up can you pull the front cover off and insure the motor will rotate the clutch pulley CCW in a Spin Only Cycle? Let’s try these few basic tests and get some feedback for troubleshooting.

Not spinning properly


You will need to replace the inner basket and front outer tub assembly. Likely, the spider on the inner basket (drum bracket) has broken which is causing it to be loose and rubbing on the inside of the outer tub. This can be verified by checking for excessive play of the inner basket (hold the front of the inner basket and check for play by moving it up and down).
It's not a cheap repair unfortunately. Be sure to always use a small amount (2 tablespoons for a full load) of HE (high efficiency) detergent to prevent future build up which could cause corrosion of the tub spider.

Kenmore Elite Washer top load Wont spin


Sounds to me like the belt is broken or has slipped off. Try taking the back off (6-8 screws) and you will immediately see if that is the problem.
