Performa tub leans
« on: March 18, 2010, 08:41:42 AM »

Had the dancing washer problem and replaced the snubber last night.  :D This took care of 90% of the problem. However I notice that the tub starts leaning towards front right (and shakes a little) once the spin cycle starts - no matter what size load or how heavy the load. There does come a point when the washer will start dancing again based on the size of the load. I leveled the machine and this helped some but the tub keeps leaning towards front right once it starts spinning. I actually centered the tub manually when it was spinning & it immediately resumed the leaning position once I removed my hand.  All springs were re-installed so that isn't the problem. Also noticed that when it comes to a stop it sometimes assumes the right front lean position even when empty.

Looking for suggestions on how to stop the tub from leaning

Appears that Maytag knew about this problem since 2005 when they issued a technical bulletin TDL-0050B-B and a repair kit #12002701.  I guess since my washer is out of warranty (purchased in 2003) the kit is no longer free.  The cost - a mere $188.00.  Looks like Maytag is no longer my appliance of choice.  I would have thought they would notify owners of this washer about the problem during the warranty period.  Good going Maytag -you lost a customer for life!!!  :tickedoff:  Remember it never pays to be cheap - you'll eventually get caught and lose in the end.
