Drum fallen to one side


I don't know which model you have, but there are plastic suspension pads that hold the tub level, if one of those wears out the tub will tilt. This can happen when you get a heavy load out of balance.

My washer wont aloud my water to go insidethe washer


If the washer makes a humming sound, but no water goes in, and there is no other action, the water shut-off valve is off (outside the washer), or the pipes are frozen.

For top-load washers: If the washer starts agitating immediately without filling the tub, the water level switch is bad (falsely senses the tub is full already) or the water level sensing hose plugged up while there was water in the machine, and it has still has pressure inside it to fool the level switch.

Drum seems out of balance does not allow water to drain because water pump hose kinks


Hi, you will have to open machine, and check spring, maybe one of your spring are broken, or strain, first lift top, and remove sides of machine, put hands on tub and rock complete assemble back until tub centers, if tub is tilted left, spring on opposite side, is loose or broken, if broken, replace, but most time they slip out, this is cause, if machine are overloaded, or not level properly, when washers are not properly leveled, when they reach spin cycle, they could go outside and come back in, just making a point, check you machine level before you start. good luck.

Maytag HAV4657EWW tub bangs during spin


This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

We have a 17 year old Maytag Washer, Model LA 9700, that is leaking. It is not an outside hose. How do I get inside the machine to look at the internal hose? I can't see anything through the back side...


The front panel should come off your washer allowing you access to the interior cabinet. Along the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer, there should be a couple of retaining clips. If you take a putty knife and push in, while lifting up on the top panel, the clips should release. Inspect the dispenser hoses, water inlet lines, drain pump, drain hoses, the hose connections to the wash tub and along the wash tub bottom where the tub seal is. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, there are some excellent exploded view drawings showing how your washer is assembled. I hope this helps you.

Maytag atlantis washer


Start by checking the belt by tilting the machine back and examining for wear, glazing and cracks, next pull the belt to make sure everything turns. Post back if this looks fine.

Just moved. New washer leaks water and appears tub is off center


CHECK THE BALANCE SPRING LOCATED (INSIDE LEFT REAR OF MACHINE). IF SPRING IS OFF IT CAN CAUSE THE TUB TO TILT TOWARD THE FRONT AND THE TUB FILL HOOD WILL NOT BE OVER THE TUB DURING FILLING OR THE TUB WILL BE ERATIC DURING THE SPIN WHEN RINSE WATER IS SPAYING IN CAUSE ING THE WATER TO MISS THE TUB AND SPRAY OUTSIDE. THIS IS COMMON IF THE UNIT HAS BEEN MOVED OR PLACED ON IT'S SIDE OR CARRIED AT EXTREME ANGLE.
