Model PAV2300AWW.

 

Will a worn snubber ring cause a unit like this to go off balance easier?  Customer seems to think that the unit goes off balance easier than it used to.  About the only thing I could find was that the snubber was worn pretty bad ... kinda sticky instead of smoothly running.  Any connection?

You would not think, but the few I have replaced stopped the rock & rolling.

. One thing abiut the snubber, if it doesn't stop the problem (although it should) the customer probably needed a new one anyway. But for something that so readily goes bad, Maytag sure made it relatively difficult to replace.

Thanks everyone.  Will give the snubber a try and see if it helps.

The springs are the hardest part, use them electric boxes after stretching them to keep them stretched & try to replace them in the same spot.
