Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
My Maytag Performa washer is acting like it is constantly out of balance. The clothing is evenly distributed. It likes to shake quite a bit. Any suggestions on what I can look at to fix the problem?
I had an appliance man come in and he used a type of wrench to adjust the little round disc leg on the bottom of the washer so that the washer would not rock (evened out the washer). This has stopped the travelling.
No one adjusted it when I bought it so it always travelled (when you buy a stove, the delivery men adjusts the legs to be even).
The shaking also caused something to come loose and the guy repaired that as well.
I actually had the repairman come in to fix an overflow problem when the washer was started - it overflowed before the wash cycle started. He unscrewed the back of the top, lifted it off and replaced a clear tubing.
He popped open the top of the washer by using some kind of screwdriver (placed it between the top of the washer and the front of the washer and lifted forcing the top up).
He then checked inside behind the tub and saw that something at the back had come loose from the shaking caused by the travelling. He tightened it and now the washer is working fine.
I don't know the technical terms and how everything works but hope this is somehow helpful if you want to DIY.
I have been disappointed with the Maytag as it is only two years old and my parents' worked like a charm for over 20 years.

the reason i say HAVE IT REPLACED is to get to the snubber ring the machine has to be dissasembled and requires special tool to get it apart and back together
