Maytag LA613 Out of Balance/Wobbles
Posted 18 December 2005 - 05:52 AM
Our Maytag LA613 developed a very bad case of the wobbles. On "spin" it acts like something from a Steven King novel.
Pulled the front panel off and found 2 of the 3 Damper Pads no longer in place. First one was completely out, the second is stuck halfway and the third-? Don't know if it is still in place or not. Replacing the pads is the obvious solution and this rookie Grasshopper shall learn how to do this. What would cause the pads to come out?
Also, there are metal shavings next to the main support that seem to have come from the transmission shaft. Is this the result of friction because of the missing pads? (Obvious solution) Or something more sinister?
Thanks to all for your input and responses. Domo Arigato

Thanks for your reply. Got the pads from the appliance parts store and replaced them. I shall reassemble my washer tomorrow. Hopefully the dishonorable washer has been restored to working order.
