I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.

It does not want to spin without making a lot of noise. What can i do it is only 4 yrs old


If it's a FAV6800A or FAV9800A run a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in

the wash basket. Do you hear noise like metal against metal? If so it could be Outer Tub Bearing noise. Please confirm you model number and first two digits of your Serial Number
Which is your machine? Rich

My wahing machine makes the noise that it normally makes when it's in spin mode, but the tub isn't moving.


The belt probably broke.  The belt is on the bottom of the machine and if fairly easy to replace.  If it is not the belt it could also be the brake, but if this was the case you would probably be smelling burning rubber during the spin cycle.  The brake is just above the belt pulley.

The washing machine makes a high-pitched squeking


No, not if the noise is only when rinsing, if it makes the noise when spinning generally then possibly but if only noisy when rinsing sounds like a filter blockage on the waste pipe. clean out the filter behind the flap on the bottom of the front panel

In spin cycle machine makes squeaky noise.


Your bearings could be going out, causing excess stress on the belt. Take the back off of the washer and check the belt tension. If there IS something stuck back there, you'll be able to see it.
