Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in France,
I am presuming, rightly or wrongly, that this is a front loader? I'm afraid I cannot tell from the reference.
If you are sure 1) that the machine is definitely balanced/level and that the 4 feet are equally firm on the floor and 2) the tub CAN be moved more easily than it should then it could be the dampers/shock absorbers. The bearings I would think would let you know that it/they are worn by the noise. I wouldn't expect them to go quietly!
Questions to ask are how old/used is it and has it been subjected to excessive unbalancing previously that could cause a damper to fail?
If your husband is confident and it IS a front loader have him take the back off WITH POWER OFF and visually check the damper(s). That should lead you in the right direction. Hope this helps but it is more difficult at a distance with this type of symptom.
