Maytag Atlantis loud screech when it brakes the spin cycle.

I have a 3 year old atlantis and when it brakes the spin cycles it makes a loud screech noise . It hurts the ears! It's not the belt, been checked. With the front cover off you can see how the tub pivots normally to absorb the braking action. I don't think it is the lower tub mount as it seems to move back and forth with ease. Also how does the transmission function? Only a small 1/4'' hose goes to the tub adapter from the load size control at leftside. I appreciate any info. Thank you, Scott.

Hi Scott,
The brake has dust on it from wear. It is at the base of the machine inside the center were the base of the gear case rests. The brake is easy to fix with one catch. There is a tension spring hold it together, never mind the 5/16 hex screws attaching it, there is 200 pounds of pressure there.
Parts 16 to 23 are causing your problem. You need parts 35-2948, 21001161 and 35-2018 which are numbers 21, 22 and 23. While your there tell them you need a spring compressor for this job. Make sure after removing 24 that the compressor is fitted to the shaft and that it lines up to the notch in the shaft so your retention pin holds the spring until you can loosen the stator(23) from the brake, 22.
