You will need to replace the "suspension springs". Here is a link to the parts.

Maytag Top Load Washer MVWB850YW making loud noise in spin cycle.


If it's a roaring noise, the tub bearing is probably wearing out. Spin the tub a little with your hand, if you hear a little of the roar, that's it.

Tub does not move during wash cycle;just keeps filling;timer jumps from 25 to 4:then drains;flashes OL(small loads)


First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.

Matag Bravos Top Load- During the agitate cycle there is a loud ratcheting noise.


It is so common that the washing machine can maketerrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it isimportant that your observation is most important and so is vital to theidentification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine isvibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to beinspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine itis important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manuallyturn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, thedrum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions whichinclude the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to bein correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of themounting is also very important. Finallyin most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solvemost issues.Check this link :http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1210/wobbly-washing-machine-or-tumble-dryer.htmlFor replacement of bearings check for tips on thisvisual link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html

Our new Bravos washer shakes excessively during the spin cycle, is this normal for this model?


No, not normal. Bravos don't even vibrate much. First, make sure the machine is sitting level. If it is level front to back and side to side and still shaking, try this simple test, put your hands on opposing corners (right front, left back) at the same time and try to rock it back and forth and then try it on the other 2 corners (left front, right back). If the machine wobbles at all it would cause this issue. This can be cause by a lose leg or leg mounting issue. If all this checks out you should call for warranty service as it could be something internal and you don't want to let it go for a long time.

Basket won't move-noise


do you notice if it agitates?
if it doesnt agitate it is just a simple coupling
if it is making a humm noise its the motor
if a LOUD rumble ONLY on spin cycle, its the basket drive assembly and the clutch.

Loud noise at end of spin cycle


The most common cause of the symptom you are describing is a bad drive block which has probably ruined your basket drive as well. Let me give a quick explination. The weight of the basket you put your clothes in is supported entirely in the center of the washer underneath your agitator. It rests on an aluminum block called your drive block. So that the basket will move back and forth while the washer agitates, there are two tabs on the drive block that lock your basket drive underneath in place. Once the drive block wears out or round down these tabs, the basket will raise slightly and "skip" across the top when the spin cyle is stopped. To verify this, you can check one of two things. First (and easiest) is put a heavy, large load in the washer, get it wet then spin it out. Once the washer reaches the maximum spin speed, open the lid. The washer should snap to a halt when functioning properly. What I belive you'll find is that even with the lid open, the basket will continue to spin. The other method to verify this is take the top of the agitator off. Next remove the bolt in the middle of the agitator and lift the agitator off. In the middle, you should find a large flat metal colored nut.In the middle of that nut, you should see two tabs across from one another. There should be two straight pieces of metal coming up from the bottom which have nice, straight sharp corners. Again, if I am correct, you will find they have been rounded off and there may even be shavings of metal visable.
To replace a basket drive and drive block, you will need to purchase the parts and also a specialty tool from removal and instalation. These will probably run you around 125-175. If you are interested in giving it a go, reply back to me and I will get you some step-by-stpe instructions typed up.
