Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag Washer. It's 2.5 years old and it hops across the floor. I have read that it could be because it is on the second floor of the house(wood floor). I put it in my garage, on concrete and it is just as bad. I have been struggling with this for some time now. At first, I thought it was a leveling problem. I took it apart a couple nights ago to see what I could see. I didn't see anything obvious so I put it back together. I started to do loads of laundry in the garage with the front of the cabinet removed so I could watch the drum. When the load is balanced the washer works fine and even when it is a little off balance the washer doesn't budge or even vibrate much. The problem occurs when the load is off balance enough that the drum begins to hit against the side of the cabinet. This makes the dryer hop across the floor. It almost looks as though heavier springs are needed to keep it from moving around as much. This never happened with our old washer and our laundry is the same. It happens with small loads too. I'm out of ideas. I read about a water filled balace ring that goes inside the drum... do I need one of these? Thanks email@example.com
I have the manual here please post your email and i will send it to you... The balance ring may have lost it water so yes it may need replaced.
