MTW5740TQ0 with vibration
« on: August 14, 2012, 11:38:09 AM »

I have a maytag perfoma m# MTW5740TQ0 washer that has a bad vibration when is spin cycle and has progressively gotten worst. I do not know where to start, would bad bearings do this or would it be some thing easier?

Check that the suspension springs are still attached and the skate plate is in the correct position.  If it checks good, replace the skate plate.
