Check the suspension springs that hold the tub. Here is a link to the springs in case you need them. Here is a video to show you how to access the springs.

When spinning the bowl seems to go off balance and bangs against the sides. The machine sits level and it does it even if it the bowl is empty.


I have just bought an LG washing machine it did this once when I had a heavy duna cover in, and I opened lid and adjusted the load and it hasnt done it again. Now when I load the machine and have a big load I position them evenly around. I hope this helps you!

My tumble dryer only spins with a helping hand once it goes its fine but does not spin on its own until i spin it manually to get it going then shut door quick


sounds as though the belt or maybe one of the rollers is wearing out. You will need to unplug the machine, open the dryer door and remove the screws, take a flat tip screw driver and pry gently on the top corners(as there are clips,that are connected to the top of the dryer) gently move the front panel forward and disconnect the door switch, sit panel aside, lift up on top lid of dryer(it has clips on the back so it will not fall off) and look at the belt and pulleys, note the routing of the belt, the rollers/coasters are on the back wall of the dryer, you will need to take belt off and lift up and out on the drum, sit drum aside and look at the rollers they should be round and spin freely. Hope this helped tim

Spins out of balance even emty

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Is off balance during the spin cycle mor often


I have a 10yr old Maytag Atlantis model MAV7258AWW. Here is how I solved my balance problem. It appeared that I had two problems. One was that it would not spin fast, the second was that it would spin off balance. To get the washer to spin fast like it should I had to open the lid then close it, re-engaging the spin cycle. I opened the top and watched the motor engage in the spin cycle. with the top open, I would open and close the lid activating the lid switch. Each time I closed the lid I noticed that the motor would move a little bit more on its glides to tighten the belt. Sort of like a automatic adjuster. The motor is designed to pivot one way for the agitator the other way for spin. If the motor does not pivot correctly, the belt will not tighten and will slip. I removed the front panel, cleaned and lubed the pivot area. Now the motor glides on the pivots like it should. I ran the spin cycle and the motor slid all the way to one side like it should, the belt tightens and the spin cycle spins. Now that the spin cycle works, quess what?? The balance problem is fixed as well. It appears that the reason that the tub was going off balance was because the belt was slipping not spinning the tub at maxium speed as designed causing the off balance problem. The tub was not spinning fast enough causing the off balance problem. I have ran several loades in the washer and not a problem. I did replace the snubber, it was worn out but it still spun off balance. I hope this helps to all who have a balance problem.

Maytag Performa Washer spins out of balance


There was a recall on the washer base, which caused the unbalanced problem. Find Technical Buletin TDL-0050B-B issued by Matag.

It won't spin when clothes are in it....but it does spin when empty


If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

MAYTAG LAT8506AAE WASHER - TERRIBLE NOISE/VIBRATION ON SPIN


Try this for re-setting the balancing mechanism:
With the washer empty, tip tip it forward so that it is just sitting on the front feet. Hold it there for a few seconds, then gently lower the back down. (Often there is a mechanism in the back feet that automatically levels it for you--if this doesn't work, check that the back feet are not damaged.)

Washer will only wash.


A Clothes Washer with the complaint of "Fills, Agitates, But Does not Drain or Spin" can be:

Defective Door/Lid Switch (Very Common): The lid-switch "that clicking sound you may hear when opening/shutting the door" can become defective after constant "slamming or dropping" or the door. This switch is a relatively simple repair. The lid switch can be located on the inside top of the machine and can be typically removed by (2) screws and un-plugging the electrical from the inside. The lid-switch costs about $15 or so for the part.

Drive-Belt or Coupling (Common) - You may have either a belt or coupling that may connect to the motor, transmission (pulley) and pump (on direct-drive machines). The belt and coupling is the driving force that engages your tub to spin and drain. Typically, upon receiving power from the lid-switch at beginning of rinse cycle, the "drive-train" (motor, transmission and water-pump) is "kick into action". Belt-Drive Machines: The belt is fairly simple to replace and runs about $20 or so. The belts circles and inter-connects with the Transmission Pulley, Motor Pulley or even with the Water Pump Pulley (Metal Cylinder type with belt groove). Direct-Drive Machines: The coupling runs about $10 or so is a little more complicated to repair. The coupling is a total of (3) small - inter-locking plastic components located and attached between the motor (mounted to shaft) and transmission (mounted to shaft) and enables the transmission to spin, upon motor receiving power.

Timer Control - (Very Uncommon)

Washer will no longer spin.


Striker plastic on lid that pushes in safety switch may be broken.

Set function knob to SPIN. Open lid and with a flat screwdriver press in the opening of the slot on the right side of the washer lid under where the lid would sit when closed. PRESS GENTLY SO YOU DO NOT BREAK THE SWITCH !!! If washed spins, let it spin out water in the tub and remove the screwdriver. the plastic pusheriner is broken. Look at the lid and see the plastic piece. Remove it by removing the phillips screw from the edge of the lid. Replace the part and you will be good to go.

Part # is 43-0057 at http://www.appliancepartscenter.us/. Cost is about $8.00.Did that fix it?
