MY WASHER MOVES VIOLENTLY AND THEN GIVES A LR CODE


I would check the balance of machine by using a leveler and checking the bottom leg adjustment on all 4 legs then check the
suspension springs, counter weights, dampning straps etc.

The washer shakes violently then the off balance sensor trips when a load is in the washer.


I had this washer at one point in time. was not very happy with it, even though i sold it to alot of my customers. usually if the machine is shaking violently it means one of a couple things. first make sure your washer is properly leveled. if it is make sure you washing the same types of clothes in the load, no mixed loads of towels with shirts. if your problem is not that then you possibly have a bad clutch. which will cause the tumbling wheels to spin during your spin cycle as well, its a costly fix so i would consider a new front loading maytag/whirpool if that is your problem. remember this machine was designed by maytag, since then they were purchased by whirlpool and everything is on a whirlpool platform now. if you do purchase a new washer and have the matching dryer to your neptune TL, it would recommended to replace the dryer as well, considering the capacity of these machines are smaller then most of the new high efficiency machines on the market today.

I have a very old Maytag - Model LA608. It has developed a habit of shaking around very violently. I have balanced out the feet so that it sits stable on the floor. I have also tried to balance out the...


Your drum is going unbalanced with the load.


Either you do have an unbalanced load but more likely is that the dampers on the underside of the drum have failed. (they are like shock absorbers)


There normally are 2 dampers attached to the drum and the frame.


They are accessed by tipping the machine onto its side.


However the machine is heavy and make sure you disconnect power and water if you want to investigate.


Cost of new dampers are around 50 each.

The drum on my washing machine is off center after spinning violently with an out-of-balance load. This machine is more than 10 years old. Is it cheaper to repair it or replace it?


would recommend repair as this is probably an easy fix. if it is a top load model then there will be some springs that stabilize the unit at the base . You will have to remove the cabinet from the washer to access and inspect the parts. look for something out of place.

Check the tub and make sure that none of the springs holding it in place so it only gives alittle bit. Your tub if ooff balance and it could be that your gear is bent and needs to be replaced

Washer stops spinning in the middle of the spin cycle


Doe,s the water come on when it stops, it may have something to do with the balance of the washing load, if the water comes on it,s trying to rebalance it self.

Maytag top load washer


This solution applys to many Maytag washing machines. Perhaps not all.
Maytags have three damper pads in the bottom of the machine that must be lubricated from time to time. If they are not, they can be ripped off. They are glued to the bottom of the machine, the drum rests on top of them. When they become dry or lost, the machine shakes violently and no amount
of leveling or load balancing will fix it. Replace and/or lubricate the pads and magically it works again.

This is not a difficult repair for those that have modest mechanical skills and a few basic tools.
replacement pads and lube come in an inexpensive kit.n

I will create a web page with instructions if there is interest.
