There should be an access panel on the back of the machine. pull it out from the wall and you should see a panel held on by some screws. just take them out and you'll be able to see whats going on. don't forget a flashlight, it's dark in there

Machine goes out of balance & vibrates on spin cycle


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.

How do I fix the last few seconds of spin that vibrates off balanced and aloud noise.


All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

At first it did not spin well, the clothes were soaking wet but there was no water in the tub. I would have to run it thru two spin cycles. Now when it gets to the spin cycle it will not spin.


It sounds like the belt is slipping & the damping straps are not securing the movement. The top tub cover should have 4 short rubber straps securing the basket to the cabinet. This prevents the tub from hitting the cabinet while the washer is spinning. I would recommend having the damper straps & the belt checked. Other possibilities would be the transmission or the brakes hanging up.

GE Topload Washer WPSR3100W1WW -- finished spin cycle, clothes were spun as normal. Water on the floor after spin cycle. When jiggling tubs, we can hear there is some water still in machine. Bottom metal...


That is normal. The balance ring has liquid in it. # 327
On these machines the tub is suspended with 4 metal rods. The lateral movement is controls by 4 straps. When these stretch the tub gets loose and water slings out the washer. Seen it.

Washer tub/basket is visibly uneven or unbalanced


Check the rubber damper straps ('cables") by hand to make sure they aren't cracked or broken (a light tug on each should suffice). Sometimes it isn't obvious visually, especially if you don't have good lighting. If one strap is bad, replace the entire set. Also inspect the attachment points for the straps to make sure they aren't loose or bent.

If you are sure the damper straps are good, then check the suspension under the tub for excess wear or breakage.

There is water left under the tub after the wash is over. When I move the tub I can hear the water sloshing. How can I get rid of the water. It makes my towels smell like mildew.


If it is draining down and spinning the clothes dry then all of the water is draining out. There is only about a 1/2 in space under the tub. There is a balance ring around the top of the tube that holds water. That may be the sound you are hearing? Try washing a load without anything in it on hot and use a box of baking soda. See if that will help with the smell. My washer leaves a mildew smell sometimes. I started running an extra rinse cycle on it. And that helped. I think it was my water.

Maytag Neptune washer, model MAH5500BWW, not spinning up to speed


Open the lid. take one hand and push the tub back toward a back corner. Take your other hand and fill in the gap on the opposite corner. There should be a black round rubber strap going from the outside top of the tub to the cabinet. Once you find it check all four corners. I feel sure that you will find more than one broken. These help to keep the load balanced. It is very important that you change these as soon as possible due to after these break these machines are bad about the tub banging into the sides and cracking the outer tub. To replace the tub will run ( in my area) around $240 - $300. These straps are not hard to replace and don't cost very much. I would rate replacing them a 2 on a hardness scale from 1 to 10. 10 being the hardest.
Please rate this solution if helpful.

Vibrating on spin cycle.


If the machine is new there is a possibility that the shipping pin didn't come out completely. If you set the machine up yourself, there is a yellow plastic strap that holds in the electric plug. You need to pull, not cut this plastic strap as it has a pin that is about 8-10" long that goes through under the tub to secure the machine for shipping.
