So Maytag master Floyd Kolb changed the dampers. They do just go bad. They go bad when the machine is allowed to vibrate continuously. Prevention is better than cure. The machine must be set up level. otherwise it will vibrate badly. Slide the machine away from where it stands, and mark where each foot will be positioned. The using a long spirit level ( mine is 36 inches) find out which of the positions is highest.. Screw in that foot fully. Then measuring carefully ascertain the difference in level of the other positions. Adjust the feet accordingly and move the machine back in place. Verify that the machine now stands level and does not rock or wobble on a bad floor. If the floor is bad - FIX THE FLOOR OR CHOSE A PLACE WHER THE FLOOR IS FIRM.

if the clothes bunch up on one side the tub doesn't spin evenly and goes off balance,the tub will start banging all around,if this happens,open the lid and move the clothes around to even them out so all the wieght isn't on one side,it's a common thing mostly with a few items in the washer but can happen with any size load.if it keeps happening send the brand name and the model number.you should be fine.

I have a GE Front load washer model # WHDVH660HWW. Everytime it goes into spin cycle the machine vibrates/shakes and it keeps stopping and then tries to reset. Eventually shutsdown. I ahve to open door...


Sounds like one of the internal suspension/dampening units for the drum unit has broken or become unattached. Am not certain what this machine has but removal of top and rear cover should allow you to inspect the items and arrange replacement as required.

Loud increasing "ticks" during spin cycle


take the two screws out of the front bottom panel and fill the machine up with water then get a flashlight and turn to spin and if you look at the top of the transmission behind the motor watch for any water flying out it there is that is the cause of the problem if not you have a bad motor
