My bravo washer is not starting a cycle when I press start button. Also water is still in tub from last load that did not drain.


Sounds like you washer is trying to spin out and becoming unbalanced and cutting off.. Move timer to spin and see if water spins out. If so try running a load and say with it so if it becomes unbalanced you can arrange clothes before returning timer runs out.

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

Washer spins than it gets off balance and shuts


Hi, Washing machines can become unbalanced when the wash load has too much weight in one area of the basket. A machine in good working order can handle most problems through its balancing mechanisms. However, when washing heavy single items such as comforters, the machine's tub can become so lopsided that it damages the washer.

Washing machines that get unbalanced can shake, make banging noises, and even more across the floor. When machines are secured in one place, they can vibrate and bang so much the entire house shakes and things fall off shelves. This is not good for the washer. Bolts can come loose, and parts can break.

When washing heavy items such as pillows or down coats, stay near the washer so you can correct any balance problems as they occur. Some washers have an automatic shut-off feature when they become too far off-balance. If yours does not, stop the spin cycle, open the lid, and redistribute the load. If this is a continuing problem, you may want to wash heavy items at a coin-operated laundry in a heavy-duty machine.

Take care

Becomes unbalanced very easily recently


There is a small spiral spring between the bowl and the cabinet, which help hold the bowl away from the out of balance switch.....OOB switch is at the back RHS of the machine, the spring is situated diagonally opposite (LHS Front). Lift lid, remoce 2 round plugs and loosen screws. Carefully lift hob and check the spring!.....I hope this helps...good luck...Nomess

During the spin cycle the drum becomes unbalanced and thumps.


I assume that your saying this happens all the time and not just because you have too many clothes on one side of your washer. First make sure your washing machine is level and there is no problem with the feet. If that checks out take the cabinet off the washer and check the tub hold down springs/straps and make sure they are still attached....they can come loose or break. Hope this helps!

Maytag Neptune Top Load Washer will not spin and water will not drain at the spin portion - the laundry becomes un-balanced. I have checked to ensure the machine is level per manual - once you reposition...


If your machine ius a FAV6800A LED console or FAV9800A LCD console then take a look at this post Clutch Fix if you want to DIY.

I will help you through the process. Your looking at $300 to $400 for a repair if you don't DIY. See if the DIY process is for you if so let me know I have a few additional questions......Rich

Having same problem with my Kenmore 500. Tomorrow will be the second time a repair man has visited the house. Washer on 5 weeks old. Drum bangs every other load. Load not unbalanced. Avoid this washer, it is a POS.

Tub bangs loudly


there may be 3 to 4 load springs on the underside of the machine that attatches to the tub. if one of these breaks which often do on my machine. They will cause the machine to become unbalanced and bang.
