Question about Maytag Washing Machines
The are springs in this model called suspension springs and they hold the entire wash unit in firm contact with the unit. The drum will definitely wobble if a spring is detached from from the suspension housing. Remove the front panel and the rear access panel to access and check or replace the suspension springs.
The front panel is attached to the cabinet side flanges by screws at the top and secured at the bottom with base mounting clips. Insert a putty knife blade or similar tool between the top cover and the front panel assembly approximately 3 inches away from the sides. Press the blade against the wire clips one side at a time to disengage them then lift the top cover up to a stationary position.
Remove the 2 screws securing the front panel to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet then move the top edge of the front panel away from the cabinet while lifting. This will disengage the front panel bottom from the base clips. Remove the 4 screws attaching the rear access panel and move the panel away to access the rear and side suspension springs. Reinstall the panels in reverse order of the removal steps.
