Tips for preventing your washer from becoming unbalanced
Maytag Bravos XL washers are designed to be durable and packed with features, but like all appliances, they can experience problems from time to time. One common issue is an unbalanced load, which can cause the washer to vibrate excessively or even walk across the floor.
Here are some tips to help you prevent your Maytag Bravos XL washer from becoming unbalanced:
– Always check the manufacturer’s recommended load size for your model of washer. Overloading the machine can put stress on the internal components and lead to an unbalanced load.
– Try to evenly distribute your laundry load between the washing tub and dryer. If one side is overloaded, it can cause the machine to become off-balance.
– Be careful not to overload the pockets of your clothing. Overstuffed pockets can add extra weight to one side of the load and cause an imbalance.
– If you notice that your washer is starting to vibrate more than usual, take a look at the clothing inside and see if there are any particularly heavy or light items that could be causing the problem. Removing these items should help correct the issue.
What to do if your washer is already unbalanced
If your clothes are already in the washer and it becomes unbalanced, you can try to redistribute the load. Open the lid and redistribute the clothes so that they are more evenly distributed around the drum. You can also try adding or removing a few items of clothing to see if that helps balance the load. If your washer is still unbalanced, you may need to call a technician to take a look at it.
