Washing machine is jumping around on the spin cycle


A few possibilities here.
Make sure the washer is level, both back to front, and side to side.
Do not over load, and make sure that there is more than 1 article in it, otherwise you will get an out of balance load.
Make sure the water is drainlng away properly.
Check the drum for excess movement, this would indicate a broken spring or worn drum bearings or worn or broken drum shaft.
Check the concrete wieghts at the top and bottom are not loose or broken.
Check the suspensions for excessive wear.
Hope this helps

Out of balance on spin cycle (machine is level)


The balancing straps that hold the drum in balance could be broken or the springs could be wore out.

Grinding sound during agitation cycle on my Maytag Performa


Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Excessive vibration during spin cycle


Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.

Leaks water on floor and spin cycle very loud


if it sounds like a boeing jet, you will need a new seal & bearing kit. This is something a technician would have to do. many "special" spanner wrenches and spring tools required

I HAVE A 6 YR. OLD MAYTAG PERFORMA PAV 2300 TOP LOADING WASHER. UNIT WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR LOUD CLUNKING NOISE AFTER SPIN CYCLE. NOTE - ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED.


It sounds like a spn down noise. I would check to see if the brake spring was changed when the brake and stator was. They had some problems with weak springs.

Hi Folks,

I'm guessing both of these problems are related to the belt slipping. There are several points to check.
  1. the belt tension. I'm not familiar with the exact details of your machines, but the usually have a an extra pulley with a spring attached to give the belt tension. Alternatively, the motor is mounted on a movable frame that is held by some springs. These springs give the belt tension. In either case check the freedom of movement of the tensioning arrangement and the springs are providing the necessary tension to the belt.
  2. Glazed belt/pulley - if the belt has been slipping it will polish the pulleys and this will reduce the friction necessary to drive the machine. To fix this the belt should be replaced and the pulley surfaces roughed up with some wet/dry emery paper (not too rough or it will wear your new belt out).
  3. Belt is too old - the rubber becomes hard and brittle and ends up with the same effect as Glazed belt/pulley above. The fix is as per 2 above.
Good luck
