SOURCE: maytag washer goes off balance
Several shock absorbers are used to internally balance the basket. Most likely they need to be replaced. It is a typical malfunction. Not expensive and can be done quickly by experienced DIY guy.

if your metal ring (clamp) came off it is most likely due to you shocks or the spring at the top are worn out and need to be replaced. this will happen more often if the cycles are off balance or the washer is over loaded

Testimonial: "That helps, is there a manual out there? Thanks,"
One of the three suspension legs supporting the washer drum has broken. This model is prone to this. I had mine serviced before the warranty expired and the service guy showed me how to do it. Much the same as replacing a worn shock on a car, the front panel of the washer is held in place by two hex screws that can be accessed by 'popping' the top panel of the washer unit. Once the screws are removed, you can then access the whole unit by disconnecting the wiring loom and the internal water hoses. Sometimes if the suspension leg isn't broken, you can screw it in place and secure it with a screw. This is what the service guy did, but it came loose in a few months. There is a new kit that replaces the old suspension legs but I haven't ordered it so I can't comment.
