    Default Maytage Performa Washer Constantly goes out of balance

    Model Number: PAV2000AWW
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: More than 10 years

    I have an older Maytag Performa washer that is constantly going out of balance. It started to be just occassionally, but is now going out of balance with about every load. The machine appears to be sitting level. Is there any adjustments that can be made or is something wearing out on the machine? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Kirk

    Its likely just the snubber ring is worn out, seen this happen many times on my service calls.

    Hi Jake: I just wanted to let you know that I replaced the snubber ring on the machine tonight and that has fixed the problem. Thank you for your help.
