Maytag Performa Off Balance
« on: March 23, 2009, 11:45:00 AM »

On the spin cycle it becomes off balance bad...It is not overloaded and after some rearranging of the clothes it will stop but not completly..It beats the sides of the washer to the point that it sounds like we are being attacked. Any repairs I could do?

Model PAVT454EWW
