Default Maytag Washer Moves Across Floor on Spin Cycle
Model Number: PAV2200   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Maytag washer jerks and moves accross the floor on spin cycle. I took the front panel off to check springs, they are OK. I found the motor to be loose and swivels freely with no way to secure or tighten it.

Is this normal

Check the bottom of the washer for white plastic shavings, if so, you have a worn snubber, a white ring on the bottom of the brake housing.

Rich,

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, there are white shavings in the bottom. Do you have an illustration of the snubber and brake housing?

Again, thank you for your time and expertise.

Found this online.

Any other advice?

This advice is for certain Maytag TOP LOADING washers equipped with a vertical transmission and drive belt system.

Loud squeaking noises during the wash cycle or, at the end of the spin cycle, can be attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. The snubber is a plastic ring located under the tub support. It helps to reduce vibration as the tub agitates and spins. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is located to get rid of some noise related problems (this will be the round metal plate where the tub support meets the bottom casing of the machine). A worn snubber will also cause some vibration or out of balance problems. The brake tends to glaze over after it has become worn and will squeak or cause sudden jerking of the washer when the spin cycle stops. If the corn starch tip does not get rid of the squeaks, I would recommend replacing the following parts:

Brake Stator
Brake Rotor and Lining
Snubber:


You will need: Brake Removal Kit*

*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs brake spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.

The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it can cost about $100. This repair I would rate as DIFFICULT for the average do-it-yourselfer. If you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommend. However, Maytag DOES provide informative how-to instructions with all their parts.

To replace the snubber and brake assembly:

1. Remove the front case of the washer to access the washer interior.
2. Tilt the washer towards the back and remove the drive belt. Slide the drive motor towards the center pulley to relieve belt tension.
3. Remove the drive pulley by removing the center cap and retaining ring from the drive shaft. Remember how these components go back together. There should be a couple of plastic drive bearing pieces and some metal washers above the pulley on the shaft.
3. Lower washer and remove hoses from the wash tub.
4. Remove the suspension springs. NOTE: Pulling the wash tub towards the spring you are removing will release some of the tension on it.
5. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
6. This is where the brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring. (Instructions come with the tool). Basically, it involves compressing the spring by turning the compression tool CW with a wrench, loosening all the bolts on the brake stator housing, and then slowly turning the compression tool CCW.
7. The brake compression tool is removed at this point and the snubber, brake rotor, brake stator and brake spring can be accessed.
8. Replace any worn parts, and reassemble the brake assembly. DO NOT forget to place the brake spring back in place before putting the brake rotor back on.
9. Place the tub assembly right side up and lower back into washer.
10. Reconnect all hoses back to wash tub.
11. Reinstall all tub suspension springs. NOTE: Its easier to start in the back of the washer and work your way towards the front.
12. Tilt washer back and reinstall drive pulley. NOTE: When placing drive pulley back on shaft turn pulley slightly to ensure it is seated all the way on the shaft. NOTE: If the shaft had multiple metal washers, you may only need ONE after replacing the snubber ring. Retain the extra washer for later use if needed. If the drive pulley is reinstalled correctly, a groove will be visible at the end of the drive shaft for the retaining ring to go back in place.
13. Reinstall drive belt.

I hope you find these instructions helpful

DO NOT follow this proceedure. You do not need the special spring release tool and you do NOT need to remove the pulley.
Go to my sticky "Replacing Maytag Performa washer snubber" in the search box above. With Performa, the housing screws are long enough. Post results.

Rich,

I unhooked the springs, walked the belt off and unhooked hoses. I removed the tub assy and trans with pulley intact, removed the fabric softner cap from spindle and placed upside on the floor. I loosened all screws evenly and gently pryed the cover up to the screw heads. This created enough space to remove the old snubber, vacuum depris, install new snubber and tightened screws.

This took 1 hour if that, my Maytag don't go for walks anymore!

Thank you

Thank you very much for the post! I appreciate it and after your relatively easy job, I will probably charge less for this repair. It seems obvious this repair is really not that hard if you avoid the hard and expensive way some recomend! Well done.

Hello,

How do I find your "sticky" that's mentioned above? And will this info work for Maytag model # HAV4657AWW?

Thanks,
Amy Stuck

Hello,

Tried to search for your sticky in the method you mentioned (putting it in the search box) but it just brought me back to this thread.

Thanks,
Amy
