Maytag is now owned by Whirlpool, try them or a Sears Homecentral or service center. It's called the "brake rotor & lining assembly". The part number should be 21002010. Unless you have experience replacing this part, I suggest you get it serviced by a professional as you will need special tools and proper adjustment to replace it.

My Maytag washer model MAV208DAWWmakes a loud screech at the end of the spin cycle, and the clothes are sill wet


That is the brake. Your clutch maybe wearing out. Or the belt maybe slipping because the rollers for the motor maybe wearing out.

My maytag washer makes a metallic screeching noise at the end of the spin cycle and I found black powder undr the machine


That would be the brake. The brake stops the tub when turning. The brake pad is likely worn down to metal. You can get a replacement from partselect.com.

Clacking sound on agitate cycle only, no noise on spin


The agitate cycle uses the motor and a spring to function. The spring is made in pieces and asit gets older some of the sections of the spring break. To verify that it is not a loose drum. Ope the washer during the wash cycle andhold the drun by hand. If the noise stops lool for the loose bolts or replace the springs, they may be weak after that many years.
Good luck!

Screeching noise in maytag topload washer


The following link explains the problem you are having with your Maytag:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r387833-maytag_washer_squeaking_problem

It is common for the brakes on Maytag top loaders to wear and make noise, as well, as the snubber. There is a helpful tip that you can try to quieten the noise if it is the snubber. DO NOT oil it, or lubricate with any petroleum based products! This will ruin the unit and actually make the problem worse. NOTE: If the snubber is excessively worn, it was also cause vibration on the spin cycle.

If the brakes are worn, however, you can put a light film of oil on the brake pad. It is common for the pad to collect moisture in humid and damp climates and start to squeak against the brake stator. The brake pad consists of a rotor with a leather edge (pad). The leather can absorb moisture and begin to squeak against the brake stator. Oiling it slightly will get rid of the noise.

Confused? If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information useful.

NOTE: There is a follow-up comment at the bottom of the link I provided from another user. The method this person used to release the tension on the brake can save you from having to purchase the brake release tool.

End of spin cycle on washer


flip, the screeching is probably coming from the brake rotor lining. I've seen this a lot on Maytag top loaders. It's not the easiest job to do. You have to remove the pulley, thrust bearing assy. then you need a special tool to take the tension off the brake spring, remove the stator and snubber to replace the brake rotor lining assy. You could take it apart and see if it will clean up, but usually the brake has to be changed. Check out the picture...Catriver..post back.
