During spin cycle machine shakes something awful. I have checked the level of the machine and it is in perfect balance, but still make a lot of noise and shakes. What to do?
Answer Dean, If you're sure the washer is leveled and installed on a solid floor, then you'll need to remove the front panel (two, 2 Phillips head screws and swing the panel out at the bottom, to release the top clips) and check to see if the damper 203725 and damper pads 203956 have worn out and the tub cannot move freely. If you see the pads "sticking" out from between the damper and the base of the washer, or if there's a heavy gray metallic powder on the base, then the pads and the damper may have to be replaced.
Makes a lot of noise and vibrates when spinning?
Answer Hello Bobby. You will need to look for plastic shavings in the bottom of the machine. If there are some, the snubber ring 21002026 will need to be replaced to balance the machine.

There is not kit available, however, the bearings are available separately. For the front bearing order 22002934. For the rear bearing order 22003441.
What is the easiest way to remove tub bearing?
Answer Hello Mike. The bearings are not easy to remove from the tub assembly. They will have to be pressed out and pressed into the tub assembly and care must be taken to prevent busting the tub assembly.
Followup question. No spin. I've installed new belts and brake assembly. No luck. Your email said to check the tub bearing. It was frozen. I've installed a new tub bearing and seal kit. The spin cycle worked -dry spin-no water as you recommended, but with a half load of clothes and water, no agitation or spin. Could I have wrecked the new belt by using it before I realized the tub bearing was frozen or did I create more problems during the installation?
Answer Hello Don,
If you didn't lubricate the spin bearing liberally after cleaning the transmission housing where the bearing rides with light sandpaper, the new spin bearing may be seized. If you did clean up the transmission where the bearing rides and lubricated it, the brake adjustment may be out far enough to prevent the brake from being fully disengaged for spin. There are only a few things that can cause this. The belt slipping, clothes between the tubs, the spin bearing, the lower transmission bearing binding, the tub cover binding, or the brake not dis-engaging. This is of course if the motor is running in spin. Also, realize that the brake must be released for the unit to spin. If the brake will not release, the brake package 6-2011900 will require replacement. Be aware that if this is the case, when the old brake is removed, the lower transmission bearing comes off with it. You absolutely must remember to remove the bearing and insert it into the new brake assembly.
My Maytag washer is 14 years old, it agitates and water discharges ok but it does not spin fast enough to take wetness out of clothes like it did before......I'm getting a light electrical or rubber smell and a little bit of water has shown up under the machine.....Is this a tub bearing gone bad?
Answer Hello David. Check and see if the bearing is leaking on the unit. If so, and you hear roaring during the spin cycle, then you will need to replace the bearing in the unit.
Comes with bearing kit and new seals for outer tub support bolts. 6-2095720 Seal kit should be replaced at the same time. Spanner wrench is required to complete repair TJ90TB123A.
