Maytag Bravos Vibration
« on: January 05, 2014, 02:18:54 PM »

Model MVWB850YW0 vibrates during spin cycle. The 4 springs are not broken and it is level. What else could be the problem? Thanks for any help

Suspension rods. One may be bent or binding. They come as set of 4 with new bushings.

I just replaced the four suspension  rods on one and believe me that took care of the problem. Make sure you clean the sockets up on top. The easiest way to replace this suspensions is to take the first one off and then use the end of the old one and put it thru the hole and hook the new one and pull it up  believe me this is easy  good luck and have a good day
