Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Only seems to make the noise on the spin cycle
You have these springs ,that help keep the tub from bumping into the casing .go behind the washer look under the tub part see if you can find a spring mounted on an arm there then look on the other side .if one of them is missing look under the washer ,find and slide spring back into it's slot.it is what balances the load.
i had that happen to my washer and my friend showed me how to fix it just in case it happened again.
banged around only in spin.hope this will help you.

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

with the machine empty see if you can lift up only the tub and see if it drops down.check to make sure there is nothing between the tub and outer tub have you gotten an f-51 error?
