Was the machine level to begin with? If it not level to start then it can keep going of balance until it is fixed.
Make sure you are level from front to back and from left to right.
Start another load and see how it works.
Good luck!

Washer goes thru cycle ok untill spin cycle gets error code out of balance, but machine not out of balance


That is not to say that the drum is not out of balance. Try running it empty and see if it happens.

The digital timer on the machine will say 1 minute to go, but the machine will run on the spin cycle for 6 to 8 minutes before it finishes. Is there a part I can replace to correct this problem?


Your washer displays an estimate of time remaining in the current wash cycle. That estimate is based on the load finishing without any delays. Prior to going into a high speed spin, your washer "tests" the load balance by either rocking or slowing rotating.

If it senses and off balance condition, it will attempt to "rebalance" the load by itself and then retest, rebalance, etc. until it is satisfied that the load is as balanced as possible. Then it begins to spin. When your washer takes longer than is predicted in the display, it is because of this.

Happy washing...

My Maytag goes out of balance and bangs loudly


This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports.
There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four.
If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled.
Good luck!

Spin cycle goes out of balance even when empty.


The stem is bent or fractured or the bearing is shot. This is a rebuild job for a techo.

Balancing the washer on the pedestal


Yes, ljharlow,

What is your Question?

You have a problem balancing the washer on the pedestal??
You must first balance the washer and then put it on the pedestal!
I take it you bought and picked up an installed your own machine.
The delivery men know to do the leveling foirsy and then raise them on to the pedestal
If you have two people you can have one person lift the front of the machine by tilting it back wards on the pedestal so the front goes up in the air a little and the second person turns the adjustable legs till it is level! If you laid the washer on its side ,front,or back at any time since you bought it then you threw the machine out of balance and YOU DO need service to correct this situation!!!!!!!

Check base mount springs, there are 3 from base to tub and 1 from tub to back bottom for counter balancing. If all are ok then you will have a skid plate problem. Best to call for help.

Washer goes into unbalance mode


Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.
