Question about Washing Machines
Front load washer on spin cycle out of balance and therefore vibrates alot and makes noise. However, all vibration is internal meaning the unit is level and solid but acts as a bearing is going out or whatever controls the balance on the spin cycle is faulty. I have not taken apart yet to have a look but do you have any ideas before I dive in?
I have a maytag 3000. After years of drum bouncing during spin cycle, I discovered that it was "bio-mass" build up in the solid grey plastic baffles inside the drum, which then would not let water or what ever drain from them. Clean by removing top panel (3 screws top rear). then loosen flexible rubber hose from soap dispenser to plastic outer drum (on top of outer drum). Reach in with tooth brush and you will see clips from baffles. Turn drum with one hand and brush with other. I also filled washer with water and some bleach. It worked. Thank God because I was about to go postal. Jeff PS: will try a longer brush (? refrigerator brush?) to reach the back next week.

I have a Maytag Neptune 3000 WAH bought 12 years ago that willnot drain then will not spin dry. Service people are overmatched by this problem. Theuy replaced the control board (they always point to that) the door switch, inertia switch, timer, anmd main switch. I still have the same intermittent problem.

If the washer fails to drain properly it will have difficulty balancing. This causes the washer to walk across the floor. We noticed ours having a tough time starting into the spin cycle. There was noticable water remaining in the tub, visible at the very back. My wife found a quarter in the pump, about a 10 minute fix.
