Adjust your washer's front legs and lock the nut, it has another nut to do this. After you have locked the legs, try to rock the washer with your hands, it should not rock. Another thing to check will be inside your washer, after taking the power off the wall socket. Check to see if some springs or the shocks (dampers) have come loose. This normally happens when the load is not even, that is when you have a big sheet in one part of the washer tub. Mix large & small clothes before you commence the wash.
To see if washer is firm: hold the front portion of the washer, the 2 corners and try to shake it, if it does not move, it is fine.

If helped pl give me a fine rating.

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..

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.

Maytag neptune frot load will not reach full spin speed.


It will not spin while washing, it's more of a rocking back and forth. As far as the spin cycle. If it's not reaching full speed I bet you'll notice that it's not doing the full cycle because the load is bouncing around and cause the washer to shut off. take some of the clothes out and watch it spin the water out.
