Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

RAS8333RQ3- Leaves clothes extremely wet after last spin cycle

I had a similar problem with my washer. You sound like the problem I had. The basin was off balance due to a belt breaking. So when it spins it was not getting the proper centripical force to drain the cloths. When I called to have it repaired it was pretty penny to replace. All we did was now when the spin is done we just reset it to spin and let it go again. Seems to be fine then. If you take the back off you can see what happens during the spin cycle and if and of the parts are in order. Hope it helps

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance

Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

Washer washes fine and the water drains but will only spin if you mess with the clothes making them perfectly balanced or you hand start the spin. Roper

sounds like the spin basket drive.. does it agitate ok? if yes get a new washer or change or get a repair man to change the spin basket drive.
