Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag A511 washer. Lately it has begun to vibrate and walk across the floor. Even when I run it with no load (just water) it vibrates some. Can the tub be rebalanced? Would I have to pull the tub? Its an old machine - would it be worth the repair?
The tub should not become unbalanced over time. There suspension springs may wear unevenly, however. Replace all of the suspension springs and it should be fine.

Make sure the legs are level..adjust if needed. Also make sure when it spins the clothes inside are evenly spread. What sounds like is happening is some of your load is favoring one side of the tub more after the agitation cycle. and these top load styles are very sensitive to that when it goes into spin. make sure you dont over load its eaither. now i have some questions? is it doing it to all the loads you wash? or are you noticing it on certain style loads? if you notice it on certain style loads, then it a matter of the machine is overloaded or the load needs to be spread evenly. hope this helps.....to be honest the only expnsive repairs would be your transmition or your motor? but is sounds like these 2 things are operation ok....let me kno if you have any questions....
