Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Violent spin tub feels loose
Your tub bearings are likely shot. Here are several vids to watch on what it takes to replace them. Maytag, Kenmore, Whirlpool and several others will all have same basic procedure so don't worry about Brand specifics. They are all made by the same company these days and even use many of the same parts. good luck.

SOURCE: washer won't spin or agitate
On this model the motor turns one way for spin and the other for agitation. This action is controlled by a thrust bearing located just undernieth the plastic cap on the center pully. Many people are thrown off thinking a transmission problem when it's actually this thrust bearing kit. However, it could be the trans. If so you have a 5 year warranty on it, part only. There is also a number of service flashes on this model including: snubber kit, flash number 26-756, which has to do with vibration during spin. Things you want to make sure of is that the pump is not seized up, leakage from the center tub on to the bearing and brake. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service flashes on this model, you could be covered. Other than that my guess without seeing it would be the thrust bearing kit, part number 12500036. Not a bad job, the kit comes with instructions. The hardest part is getting that last washer on.

it sound to me to be the water pump, with all the water in the tub, the machine dont spin ok, and the water is extracted by centifugal force, not by pumping as it should be, call a tech, this is a hard job for regular people..good luck

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: during spin cycle started making
ckd your warranty papers sounds like rear drum support(spider) has broken will require new basket and rear drum half est cost 400-600 spider is not a separate part and rear bearing is probably damaged that too is not a separate part and require rear tub replacement

it sounds like you have a broken spinner assembly,
this is the unit that connects your innur tub to you center shaft seal,,,,
it can be replaced and repaired by you no special tools but the cost could be quite extensive....
an outer tub and spinner is an absolute minimum and there are parts to inspect as you take it apart
do you need both halves of the outer tub would be the biggest one
unless this machine is less than just a few years I would just not bother putting the money into it
its well past cost effective 500.00 for the two parts ive mentioned
