If you post the model number the pros will be able to look up your machine.

Did you replace the 6 springs? Sometimes a little baby powder where snubber sits will help. I also have had to replace base to stop it but only once in many years.

You always need the springs. I have done many of those and I would not even take one apart without springs.

Maytag Washer Quiet Series 100 Model # MAVT546EWW Still Out of Balance

Did as Suggested. Replaced Snubber Ring, used Corn Starch, replaced 6 Springs. Still out of balance. Made sure Washer is balanced true. Is there still something I still need to do?

I have only seen this once 1 time we had to replace base. Before I did this I would look into a new washer. Part # to in base diagram

Major job and not sure it would fix your washer. How bad is it out of balance? Does the washer move across the floor or just wiggle?

You need to replace the springs and snubber. Parts are pretty cheap but a bear to install. Have done many of them'
here is a break down of washer, Look under base for part 18 and 29

Not common for this to happen on your washer. I would check that the springs are in place. They may need to be replaced but have never had to replace them. If I remember there are 3 of these springs.
