Customer Question
Have Maytag washing machine...

Have Maytag washing machine - Oasis - whose tub seems to have become unbalanced. On spin cycle it makes terrible banging noise, and I am unable to reposition clothes and correct the unbalane. Error message is Ul.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is an Oasis, and it's certainly an older model. Maybe 5 or 6 years?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Probably not, but I want to have an idea of what the problem might be. I keep thinking new bearings and leveling the machine, but I am certainly not a technician. The problem is that two different appliance repair companies have been stumped by what's wrong with it (!!??) - they were sent out by my warranty company who finally gave up and offered me a settlement of about 1/3 what I paid for the washer. However, I am so sick and tired of getting sent incompetent workers that I said okay. But now I want to know if it can be fixed before I buy another washer!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Unless you can think of anything to ask me about the problem?
