Try the tub casting under the agitator if its a top loader,if its a front loader does the drum wobble,then you will need a new drum plus bearing and seal.

Shakes like crazy spin


Your maytag washer tub and basket assembly sits on a base counter balanced by 6 springs. Is is possible to move the tub around by hand. The best test is to start a spin with the unit empty of cloths, allow the tub to reach speed for a few seconds, lift the lid and check the tub position after it stops, if the tub is off center with the lid opening, re center the tub and run spin again. If your tub returns to an off center stopped position you most likely will need the base kit replaced. The base kit replaces the entire bottom of the unit along with new springs, and snubber, if so packaged per your application. Maytag experienced a defective stamping dye when these bases were stamped, thus they were stamped crooked. This test is performed with the machine it's self relatively level on the floor. If the tub assy leans and favors any one direction while you are trying to center it with the lid open, you may have a rusted or broken counter spring in side the unit. Pleazer Appliance...

The wasing machine shakes badly when in a spin cycle.\r\n970-C45092-00


Hi

First check if the machine is level .Also makes sure you do not have an unbalanced load. Lint filter between the tubs is loose/broken, tub nut and drive block is worn, bad brake, worn spin tub are some various reasons when washer shakes in spin cycle.

Washer shaking, making loud noise and leaking water


Sounds like a tub support could be defective causing excessive tub movement splashing water outside the washer. Try to move the tub by hand and see if it is firm and snaps back to its center position. If the tub is loose, lift the top cover off by using a non marring tool to pry the front up and lift the cover back on the hinges. Inspect the tub supports for broken or worn rubber shock absorbers. Look at both the tub support shafts and the corner stabilizer attached to the frame and the outer tub. You may need to inspect the fill hose and the water injector to see if it is loose or cracked.

with what you describe i would have to say its a hose. fault as you say there is greater amounts of water when the tub starts up this would widen a rip in the hose or increase looseness

Replaced Transmission: everything working great, just not sure about suspension springs. 3 are very tight (tub base), 3 are somewhat loose (metal hangers). Is this normal?


If you can shake the outer tub in several directions without it banging the mechanism on the case, it would appear that you have it correct. If it were wrong, either the machine would 'walk' around the floor or make banging noises when it goes into spin with a full load of clothes. The tub should be free to shake, but in a controlled manner. Good luck and well done!

Violate shaking in spin cycle


Yes you need to remove the agitator to do this and there is a nut that holds the tub down these come loose alot from the factory alot of times you can remove the nut and put lock tite on the treads and re tighten and be fine but in most of the cases you need to replace the spanner nut and the split ring under ther tub at the same time to take care of the problem the split ring isnt that hard to replace you just need to remove the splash gaurd from the top of the tub and several brackets that hod the header on and just lift inner tub out and there on the transmission is the split ring it looks just as it says just a little ring with a split in it replace these and it will solve your problem but you will need a special tool to tighten the nut back due to the room in the tub (center nut spanner tool for a g/e)
