Maytag made board changes  mid-production to compensate for  off-balance conditions, and added a motion sensor kit to monitor excessive tub movement, The sensor will count the number of times the tub is off balance and stop the spin to rearrange the load and try  again. Ordering a new PCB kit will incluide the new sensor plus instructions.
