Six year old Whirlpool 3357978 washer stops spinning violently

Six year old Whirlpool 3357978 washer stops spinning so forcefully that it makes a loud bang and shifts position. I believe the fault lies with the break. But I don't know why after six years it would start (you'd think it would get weaker), or how to fix it. Can you assist?

During the spin cycle, the machine shakes violently and dances across the floor. It has a loud squealing noise during this. My Performa is only about 14 months old. This is very disappointing for a Maytag.


Look in owners manual. I think these washers have a 1/2 hp. variable speed motor. make sure the washer is level from front to back and side to side, if its not that could be the problem. The motor has a lot of force, the squealing could be a bad bearing not sure.

It sounds like basket support failure. How old is the machine? They usually **** at around 5 to 6 years. Unless you are going to fix it yourself or it's under extended warranty, junk it.

The repair requires a complete teardown of the washer. two to six hours labor depending on tech skill level.

You may have one suspension point that has failed.

Open the back and using a flashlight, inspect the outer shell; the suspension should look the same at each point.

Don't know your particular machine but the suspensions are pretty primitive, some no more than heavy rubber rings at each point.
You're right that it shouldn't be ignored, as it can cause more problems and stresses the bearings abnormally.

Sometimes, this can be caused by running one very unbalanced load and not stopping the machine to redistribute the clothing to correct the imbalance.
This can cause a suspension point to become unhinged.
