    Default Centennial banger

    Model - MVWC200XW0

    Maytag Centennial washer


    As soos as this thing starts to spin, it starts banging and dancing all over the place. All the suspension rods seem to be okay. Drive block also looks good.

    If I don't get it turned off when it starts this, I believe it would come apart.

    It is level when it does this.

    I have only had one of these do that and we had to change out the updated suspension rods and pads...

    Did the springs just get weak?

    Not sure if weak or stiff....the basket assembly ( even empty ) moved so much it banged the cabinet and shut off off balanced.

    Ditto on the cabinet banging!

    Is this thing supposed to coast to a stop from spinning? Should the agitator and or drum be easy to turn by hand?

    It will.

    Not sure about the agitator, drum normally is. That was one nice thing about unloading, could turn the tub so that sock on the bottom was closer to me to grab.

    Strange. I thought I had done one load on this machine and it did really good after it was leveled up. But, it is the one that had a slight momentary click when it started a new cycle and or task like right before going into the spin cycle or wash cycle.

    I might be better off to safe a few parts and let it go to the scrap yard.
    Dang, good looking unit too.

    All I can say is when you get other peoples problems, sometimes you come up short.

    That is probably the actuator activating/moving....makes a slight click noise.

    I hd noticed one in a video making a similar noise.
    Might be worth seeing into.
