This 2 year old washer does not seem to rinse out well enough.
Clothes are wetter than they should be. The customer also complains of it shaking to much and will actually move several inches. I looked at the base area. no broken springs, no missing or loose bolts, pulleys etc. are fine. All seems to be ok. There is evidence of the front of the tub banging on the front of the machine so customer is not crazy. The tub assembly seems to move freely. Any ideas as to what I could try next

replace the snubber ring  part 21001161 should be the part number if it has not changed and don't forget to put the corn starch on the base before you reinstall the transmission,O by the way the machine has to be totaly disassembled to do this repair about a four beerer:bananadance:

My books don't list that #. Could it also be called a "Damper Pad" ang goes between the circular base and the bottom frame.
I can see how that may cause a machine to shake. How would that cause it to not rinse out well enough? I don't doubt you, I'd just like to know more.

One quick ?. You say the machine has to come "completely" apart. Does this mean the drums, tranny, etc type of completely?
Thank you in advance

I am having trouble with my Maytag Performa clothes dryer.  Suddenly, it doesn't work...at all... I don't know how to troubleshoot to even begin to find the problem.  Can you help me?

Timer.  No, wait, bad transmission.  No, no, no, I meant to say bad motor.  No, bad lid switch, I mean it this time.  Well, it's one of those anyway. 

I will leave the Coup de grâce to Pegi.

Hahahaha, ok well here goes....Dear FearDaughter.  One, please start a new topic, you are wanting help on an dryer in a washer thread.  Two, we sure would like to know  what your dryer is doing, EXACTLY, if possible.  Dead? no heat? will not shut off?  popping your breaker? walking out of your house in the middle of the night?  eating the chocolate chip cookins saved for the party?  or other? Three, we cannot do anything at all without Model and Serial numbers.....Thank you.

yep it does mean that the tub, basket , springs, agaitator, brake assy bottom tranny pulley and assorted goodies that are in their respected places have to come out to get to the snubber

the reason that the snubber would cause this slow or not a complete spin is that the tub will not be able to come up to full speed spin due to the overmovement of the tub assembly, it will act as an out of balance situation and will not be able to get to high speed spin,

if you try a spin cycle with no clothes in it it should spin fairley true with little movement from from side to side, add something into the machine to simulate a out of balance situation, and you will see that the tub moves way out of  balance
