Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer
My Maytag clothes washer....when it spins the motor runs fine, but the entire clothes bucket inside is moving, loose enough with your hand to push side to side and front to back. It makes a sound like in the old days, when a bathroom rug would throw it all out of balance. Clothes are not spinning dry? Could it be a belt or leveling device? Is it time to toss it......5-1/2 years old and seems in good working order otherwise. Sure would like to keep it.
Sounds like the upper bearing located in the outer tub seal is bad. It takes very little play at this bearing to cause what you are describing.
The area of this picture you are interested in is the top left. This is the tub seal assy.
