I had to change computers,

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Okay I was telling you about the Maytag washer that is unbalanced.

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

8 years old no agitator

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

Maybe

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

Nothing I can think of

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok I now have the model number.

And if your having an out of balance issue ,have you looked at or replaced the suspension rods?

And have you tried running the washer in a spin mode with out clothes in it to see if it is still out of balance or not?

with water it has no issues.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

ok so if you can run the washer with out anything in it and it is not out of balance then you have weak springs on the suspension rods .

And make sure that your putting like items in the washer on each load.

Like items mean they weight approx the same when wet.

So jeans with jeans , sheets with sheets type of loads. not mixed weight items.

Do you want a parts link to the suspension rods?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
how much are the suspension rods?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

---> CLICK HERE <--- FOR THE CORRECT PART FOR YOUR MODEL

I show from this parts dealer the rod kit is $65.06 and the link even has a video showing how the parts are installed.

If you have any questions just reply back to me .

It says it for a Whirlpool. The washer is a Maytag.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

That is because Whirlpool OWNS Maytag since 2004
